2013 Regulatory Work Programme The 2013 Regulatory Work Programme (RWP) is based on ESMA’s 2013 Work Programme, published in October 2012, and provides a detailed breakdown of the of the individual workstreams as outlined in the 2013 Work Programme.  The RWP is based on the draft proposals of the European Commission for a number of upcoming legislative texts including MiFIR, MAR etc, and the timelines and details for various work streams are subject to further revision once the European Union institutions have finalised the relevant legislation.The RWP should normally be published in conjunction with the annual Work Programme on which it is based.  However, the 2013 RWP was delayed due to uncertainty over several components of the EU’s legislative programme.  As this uncertainty has been prevalent over the last two years, ESMA will amend its procedures to allow it to publish the RWP in Q1 of the relevant year, rather than with its Work Programme the preceding autumn.The RWP was approved on 29 January 2013 by ESMA’s Board of Supervisors.

01/04/2014 2014/336 Trade Repository Supervision Work Plan 2014 Reference PDF
111.34 KB

The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) is publishing a summary of its 2014 supervisory work plan in relation to trade repositories (TRs) with the aim of enhancing the transparency of its actions regarding TRs in the European Union. TRs centrally collect and maintain the records of derivative trades and play a central role in enhancing the transparency of derivative markets and reducing risks to financial stability. In November 2013, ESMA registered six TRs. The obligation for counterparties to report their derivative trades to registered TRs began on 12 February 2014. Under Titles VI and VII of Regulation EU 648/2012 (EMIR), the direct supervision of TRs has been entrusted to ESMA, who has started to supervise the six registered TRs. Supervision of TRs by ESMA is crucial to ensuring that TRs comply on an on-going basis with all EMIR requirements, thereby enabling regulators to access data and details of derivative contracts in order for them to fulfil their respective mandates.

The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has published the text of a new multilateral memorandum of understanding (MMoU) between EEA national competent authorities, and between national competent authorities and ESMA which entered into force on 29 May 2014. It has been signed by 33 authorities in the securities and markets area. The new MMoU was agreed in view of the increasing internationalisation, harmonisation and interdependence of financial services and markets in the European Union. It is designed to facilitate cooperation arrangements and the exchange of information between national competent authorities, and between national competent authorities and ESMA, in the application of their responsibilities under Union law relating to the securities and markets area. It also updates and replaces a previous agreement on the Exchange of Information and Surveillance of Securities Activities agreed by the members of the Committee of European Securities Regulators (formerly the Forum of European Securities Commissions) entered into by those members on 26 January 1999.

The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has published its Work Programme for 2015. The programme sets out how ESMA intends to achieve its statutory objectives of investor protection and stable and orderly functioning markets through its operational activities of convergence, risk monitoring and analysis, the single rulebook and supervision. The projected work programme is based on a budget of €38,639,000 and a staff base of 202 people as per the budget approved by ESMA’s Board of Supervisors on 6 February 2014 and subsequently submitted to the EU institutions. At the time of drafting, the budget prepared by the European Commission and sent to the EU Council and Parliament for ESMA in 2015 is for €33,627,920 and 186 people. In order to prepare for the eventuality that ESMA will receive fewer posts than planned for in the work programme, Annex 5 contains a list of the areas of work that ESMA would be unable to accomplish in 2015 with reduced resources.
