Article 21(3) of the CRA Regulation requires ESMA to issue and update guidelines on the application of the endorsement regime specified under Article 4(3) of the same Regulation.

|This call for evidence should be read by all those involved in the EU securitisation markets. It is particularly targeted at the following market participants and the groups and trade associations who represent them: • Issuers, originators and sponsors of Structured Finance Instruments (SFIs);• Investors acting in the securitisation markets;• Market intermediaries other than the issuers, originators and sponsors of SFIs.Responses are most helpful to ESMA when they clearly indicate which question is being answered and provide evidence in support of the response, such as concrete examples of practices experienced, data or costs estimates. Should respondents feel that the distinction provided for by the two proposed categories (issuers vs. investors) is not suitable to their particular situation, ESMA welcomes these contributions in alternative format. ESMA will consider all responses that have been received by 20 May 2015. All contributions should be submitted online at www.esma.europa.eu under the heading ‘Your input - Consultations’.|
