ESMA Publishes Responses to Call for Evidence on Transaction Reporting

The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has published the responses it has received to its May 2012 call for evidence on transaction reporting. On 7 May 2012, ESMA published a call for evidence on transaction reporting. The purpose of the call for evidence was to gather initial views on ESMA’s work to develop guidelines on harmonised transaction reporting under the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (2004/39/EC) (MiFID). This followed the commitment made by ESMA’s predecessor, the Committee of European Securities Regulators (CESR), to review its May 2007 Level 3 guidelines on MiFID transaction reporting.

On the basis of responses received, ESMA intends to launch a full public consultation on guidelines on harmonised transaction reporting. Call for Evidence. Responses.
