The Committee of European Securities Regulators (CESR) has, together with EU securities regulators, been co-ordinating actions by its Members regarding short selling practices, in particular in financial companies. Some EU securities regulators have adopted, or are in a process of taking action in their respective markets either to limit, or to introduce stringent requirements or further reporting obligations on firms in relation to short selling. Other Members are currently considering whether additional requirements are necessary, taking into account the evolving market conditions and the characteristics of their particular domestic markets. CESR has now published a table which sets out the statements (or links to statements) made by its Members.
