ESMA receives securitisation repository registration application


The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA), the EU’s securities markets regulator, has received its first application for registration as a securitisation repository (SR) under the Securitisation Regulation.

ESMA, under the Securitisation Regulation, has direct responsibilities regarding the registration and supervision of SRs, who centrally collect and maintain the records of securitisation transactions in the EU.

The reporting obligation for reporting entities will begin with the registration of the first SR. ESMA will announce publicly when the first SR(s) are registered.
