ESMA consults on MIFIR transactions and reference data reporting

This consultation paper will be of interest to all stakeholders involved in the securities markets. It is primarily of interest to competent authorities and firms that are subject to MiFID II and MiFIR – in particular, investment firms and credit institutions performing investment services and activities and trading venues.

This paper is also important for trade associations and industry bodies, institutional and retail investors and their advisers, and consumer groups, as well as any market participant because the MiFID II and MiFIR requirements seek to implement enhanced provisions to ensure the transparency and orderly running of financial markets with potential impacts for anyone engaged in the dealing with or processing of financial instruments.

In parts of the consult, ESMA proposes to leverage on existing empowerments included in EMIR Refit and SFTR, and aims to harmonize the wording of the empowerments, especially the obligation to take into account international developments and standards.
