The European Commission published a final Delegated supplementing MiFIR dealing with  regulatory technical standards (RTS) for the reporting of transactions to competent authorities.  MiFIR, requires investment firms to report complete and accurate details of transactions in financial instruments no later than the close of the following working day, and ESMA has power to develop RTS to set down rules on  reporting transactions.  Following consultation on the draft RTS, the Delegated Regulation was amended to explicitly exclude collateral transfers from the reporting obligation.   If neither the Council of the EU or the European Parliament objects, the RTS will enter into force 20 days after its publication in the Official Journal of the EU (OJ). It will apply from 3 January 2018, with the exception of Article 2(4) (the exclusion of collateral transfers)
