The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) published on August 22 2014 its opinion on how national competent authorities should apply the modifications to the CESR guidelines on money market funds set out in the report on Mechanistic Reference to Credit Ratings in the ESA’s Guidelines and Recommendations (JC 2014 004) issued by the Joint Committee of the three ESAs, when monitoring the application of the CESR guidelines by the relevant financial market participants.

The Joint Committee report was published on 6 February 2014, setting out the manner in which the CESR guidelines were to be amended, in particular with respect to the assessment of credit quality of money market instruments by managers of Short-Term Money Market Funds (ST MMFs) and Money Market Funds (MMFs).
