ESMA UPDATES Q&A ON SHORT-SELLING REGULATION
The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has today updated its Questions and Answers (Q&As) on the Short-Selling Regulation (SSR).
This Q&A clarifies that the identification of the relevant competent authority, following the entry into application of MiFID II/MiFIR, is no longer made under Commission Regulation No 1287/2006 but under Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2017/590 for the reporting of transactions to competent authorities.
The purpose of this Q&A is to promote common supervisory approaches and practices in the application of SSR.
ESMA will periodically review these Q&As and update them where required.
