Resolution objecting to current Position Limits rule defeated

The resolution to object to Regulatory Technical Standard (RTS) 21 (see here), which specifies how Position Limits are to be calculated, has today been defeated in the European Parliament. The result can be found in this document on page 14 (where the “-” means defeated).

Sven Giegold, who was part of the group of Green Party MEPs who objected, has posted this item on his web site with comments on the defeat.

The RTS becomes final when it is published in the Official Journal.
