This consultation paper (CP) seeks stakeholders’ views on the draft Regulatory Technical Standard (RTS) ESMA is required to draft under Article 65(8)(c) of Directive 2014/65/EU with regard to the consolidated tape for non-equity instruments.

The input from stakeholders will help ESMA in finalising this draft RTS. Respondents to the consultations are encouraged to provide the relevant data to support their arguments or proposals.

Contents

Section 2 introduces the topic. Section 3 addresses the issue of specialisation of the CT, whereas section 4 discusses which trading venues and APAs should be mandatorily included in the CT. Finally, the CP ends with section 5 which discusses the inclusion of new trading venues and APAs to the CT as well as the removal of a trading venue or APA from the CT.

Next Steps

On the basis of the responses to this CP, ESMA will finalise the draft RTS and submit the final report to the European Commission for endorsement. The consultation closes on 5 December.
