ESMA has issued a discussion paper on implementation of the Benchmark Regulation. It seeks views on ESMA’s policy orientations and initial proposals for the draft regulatory technical standards (RTS) and technical advice required under the Benchmarks Regulation. ESMA asks for views based on the agreed compromise text, since the adopted Regulation has not yet been published in the OJEU. Consultation closes on 31 March.
