ESMA updates reporting instructions for MMF reporting
The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA), the EU's securities markets regulator, has published updated reporting instructions to be used for reporting under the Money Market Fund Regulation (MMFR).
ESMA has implemented amendments on the XML schema and reporting instructions in a new version, v1.1. which is published today. As indicated in the announcement published on 31 March this update follows feedback received by market participants after the publication of the first version of the XML schema (v.1.0) and an assessment of the technical committee.
Reporting entities should use the version v1.1 to submit reports required under Article 37 of MMF regulation by September 2020. The reference period for the first reporting is Q1 2020, meaning that MMF Managers shall report in September 2020 quarterly reports for both the Q1 and Q2 reporting periods.
