ESMA has commented on the draft RTS on reporting obligations under Article 26 of MiFIR. ESMA acknowledges the need to amend RTS 22 due to an unintended omission in the final stage of drafting the RTS prior to their submission to the Commission in September 2015. The amendment ensures that investment firms do not submit transaction reports for transfers of collateral, which would be costly and bring no supervisory benefit.
