The EU Council has published COREPER’s information note concerning the outcome of the European Parliament's first reading of the proposed Regulation on reporting and transparency of securities financing transactions (SFT Regulation). According to the note, the Parliament has voted in plenary to adopt the SFT Regulation at first reading, reflecting the position which had been previously agreed between the institutions and that the Council should therefore be in a position to approve the Parliament's position. The SFT Regulation can then be formally adopted in the wording corresponding to this position.
