As I noted a few months ago, the Hague Securities Convention has now come into force. The Hague Conference has now published a second edition of the explanatory report that accompanies the Convention.

The report is actually just a reprint of the report issued back at the time of the drafting of the Convention, but it had until now been out of print, so I’m glad that the HCCH has reformatted it and made it available to the public.
