ESMA updates EMIR Q&A and Validation Rules

April 03, 2017

The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has updated its questions and answers (Q&A) on practical questions regarding the European Markets Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) and published updated validation rules following the publication of the revised technical standards on reporting under Article 9 of EMIR. Both of these new documents will be applicable from 1 November 2017.

The revised RTS and ITS on reporting under Article 9 of EMIR include a number of provisions that had previously been covered in ESMA Q&As. With the release of the revised RTS and ITS many of these questions will now become obsolete. In order to facilitate smooth and well-informed preparation for the implementation of the revised standards, ESMA has included the updated versions of those questions in the Q&A, indicating that they will become applicable from 1 November 2017, together with the revised technical standards.

The new validation rules reflect the changing field requirements set out in the revised RTS and ITS.

The original press release can be found here on the ESMA website.
