ESMA launches MiFIR and EMIR centralised data programmes: ESMA has announced that national supervisors have asked it to provide them with databases that will provide a:

  • central facility in relation to instrument and trading data and the calculation of the Markets in Financial Instruments Regulation (MiFIR) transparency and liquidity thresholds (the Instrument Reference Data Project); and
  • single access point to trade repositories data under the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) (the Trade Repositories Project).

ESMA will collect data from 300 trading venues and 5,000 counterparties and make it available to national supervisors. (Source: ESMA Launches MiFIR and EMIR Centralised Data Programmes)
