23/12/2015 2015/1909 Guidelines on Transaction Reporting Reference Data Order Record Keeping and Clock Synchronisation Consultation Paper PDF
3.46 MB

The European Securities and Markets Authority's (ESMA) consultation paper seeks stakeholders’ views on the draft guidance on the application of the provisions of the ESMA RTS on transaction reporting, instrument reference data, order record keeping and clock synchronisation (RTS 22, 23, 24 and 25). This guidance complements the technical standards and will be essential for the consistent implementation of the new MiFIR rules.

Section 1 specifies individual scenarios applicable to a given transaction reporting activity. Each of the scenarios is accompanied with the precise technical formats and schema to be used to represent the specific reportable values. Section 2 specifies scenarios applicable to specific order record keeping activities. In addition to the reporting and record keeping scenarios, these sections also provide a number of other clarifications on the application of the requirements under the new technical standards which were requested by the market participants during the consultations on the MiFID II technical standards but could not be addressed in the final technical standards due to the level of detail and specificity of such requests. Section 3 provides clarifications on the application of the clock synchronisation requirements.

ESMA will consider the feedback it received to this consultation in Q2 2016 and expects to publish in the second half of 2016.
