On October 15, 2015, a corrigendum was published in the Official Journal of the European Union, correcting the date of entry into force of Article 4(6) of the Markets in Financial Instruments Regulation. Under Article 4(6), the European Securities and Markets Authority must develop Regulatory Technical Standards on national regulators’ powers to waive the pre-trade transparency requirements under which market operators and investment firms operating a trading venue must make public information such as current bid and offer prices for shares, exchange-traded funds and other similar financial instruments traded on a trading venue. In particular, the RTS should specify, amongst other things, the range of bid and offer prices to be made public for each class of instrument, as well as the depth of trading interest at those prices and the negotiated transactions that do not contribute to price formation. This provision should have been applicable from the date MiFIR entered into force, July 2, 2014, however Article 55 did not include the cross-reference.
