The present report contains ESMA’s proposed technical advice on supervisory fees. In making these proposals, ESMA has sought to be consistent with existing fee provisions under SFTR and EMIR. At the same time, ESMA has sought to streamline the fee arrangement where possible, also in view of its experience in calculating and processing fees for trade repositories and CRAs for several years. In doing so, ESMA has aimed to both meet its legislative mandate (i.e. that its fees should be proportionate to repositories’ turnover) while also establishing an efficient framework. To this end, ESMA proposes a single registration fee differentiated between new registrations and extensions of registrations for existing trade repositories. ESMA also proposes annual supervisory fees that reflect the available information on repositories’ applicable turnover. Annex I lists ESMA’s consultation questions, Annex II includes the Commission’s mandate to ESMA, and Annex III contains the draft technical advice on fees.
This consultation paper may be specifically of interest to securitisation repositories which plan to apply for registration, extension of registration or recognition under the Securitisation Regulation, the already registered trade repositories under EMIR, as well as of interest to trade associations, securitisation reporting entities and market infrastructures.
