03/02/2015 2015/224 ESMA’s technical advice on possible delegated acts concerning the Market Abuse Regulation Technical Advice PDF
1021.03 KB
This advice:•    specifies the MAR market manipulation indicators, by providing examples of practices that may constitute market manipulation as well as proposing “additional” indicators of market manipulation; •    recommends to set the minimum thresholds that exempt certain market participants in the emission allowance market from publicly disclosing inside information at six million tonnes of CO2eq per year and at 2,430 MW rated thermal input;•    suggests the way to determine to which regulator delays in disclosure of inside information needs to be notified.  •    provides clarifications on the enhanced disclosure of managers’ transactions. - ESMA recommends disclosing  any acquisition, disposal, subscription or exchange of financial instruments of the relevant issuer or related financial instruments carried out by managers,, further illustrated through a non-exhaustive list of types of transactions subject to this obligation.  . ESMA also clarifies the transactions that can be allowed by the issuer during a closed period when normally managers are prohibited to trade; and•    proposes procedures and arrangements to ensure sound whistleblowing infrastructures – i.e. EU national regulators should allow the receipt of reports of infringements, including appropriate communication channels and guarantee the protection of reporting and reported persons, with respect to their identity and their personal data. Next steps ESMA has sent its technical advice to the European Commission for its consideration in drafting its implementing standards regarding MAR. ESMA’s regulatory technical standards regarding MAR will be delivered in July 2015.
19/12/2014 2014/1569 Technical Advice to the Commission on MiFID II and MiFIR , Technical Advice PDF
2.8 MB
Reasons for publication The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) received a formal request (mandate) from the European Commission (Commission) on 23 April 2014 to provide technical advice to assist the Commission on the possible content of the delegated acts required by several provisions of Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II) and the Markets in Financial Instruments Regulation (MiFIR). The mandate focuses on technical issues which follow from MiFID II and MiFIR and is available on the European Commission website (here). ESMA was required to provide technical advice by no later than six months after the entry into force of MiFID II and MiFIR (2 July 2014). Contents This final report follows the same structure as the Consultation Paper  (CP) published by ESMA on 22 May 2014 which is: (1) Introduction, (2) Investor protection, (3) Transparency, (4) Data publication, (5) Micro-structural issues, (6) Requirements applying on and to trading venues, (7) Commodity derivatives and (8) Portfolio compression. This paper also contains summaries of responses to the CP received by ESMA. The rationale of those items covered already in the CP for which no relevant changes have been introduced, is not developed again in this Final Report. ESMA recommends, therefore, to read this report together with the CP published on 22 May 2014 to have a complete vision of the rationale for ESMA’s technical advice. Next steps Delegated acts should be adopted by the Commission so that they enter into application by 30 months following the entry into force of the Directive and Regulation, taking into account the right of the European Parliament and Council to object to a delegated act within 3 months (which can be extended by a further 3 months).

27/03/2014 2014/298 Guidelines on cooperation arrangements and information exchange between competent authorities and between competent authorities and ESMA , Guidelines & Recommendations PDF
433.04 KB

The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has published Guidelines aimed at facilitating cooperation arrangements and the exchange of information between individual national competent authorities and between those authorities and ESMA, in the application of their responsibilities under Union law relating to the securities and markets area. The Guidelines take account of the establishment of ESMA, other developments in Union law and incorporate cooperation procedures agreed between the authorities and ESMA in the form of a new multilateral memorandum of understanding (MMoU). The new MMoU enters into force on 29 May 2014 and updates the existing MMoU on the Exchange of Information and Surveillance of Securities Activities which was agreed by the members of the Committee of European Securities Regulators (CESR), formerly the Forum of European Securities Commissions, on 26 January 1999. These Guidelines and the new MMoU, as with the CESR MMoU, have been agreed in view of the increasing internationalisation, harmonisation and interdependence of financial services and markets in the Union with the aim of optimising the efficiency and consistency of cooperation between the authorities.
