The European Commission has published its letter to ESMA relating to the draft ITS on the technical means for appropriate public disclosure of inside information and for delaying the public disclosure of inside information under Article 17(10) of MAR. Overall, the Commission is supportive of ESMA's general approach, but believes that the requirement obliging entities that fall within the scope of the Regulation on wholesale energy market integrity and transparency (REMIT) to systematically employ the media channels set out in MAR is disproportionate, as the disclosures required in REMIT, and its implementing acts, allow emission allowance market participants to comply with the disclosure requirement in Article 17(2) of MAR. The Commission suggests how ESMA could modify the draft ITS.
