ACER yesterday issued the follow documents and updates:
- An updated Questions and Answer document on REMIT (here)
- An updated list of “accepted EICs” for use as the delivery point in reports(here)
- The latest edition of the “REMIT Quarterly” (here)
The quarterly reveals several new pieces of information: In particular, it reveals that several smaller fines have been levied for breaches of REMIT disclosed on page 3. These comprise several small fines levied in Spain on market participants that have failed to register in the ” CEREMP” database (also see here), and a fine levied in Hungary against an Organised Market Place (OMP) for failure to report orders and trades under REMIT Article 8 (also see here). Two weeks ago, a large fine was levied in France for market abuse (see here).
The newsletter also reports on the recent “EMIT” forum held in Ljubljana. The newsletter reports on the discussion, including a desire for ACER to remain involved in data collection for the UK after Brexit. Various statistics are also given, including another rise in outstanding investigations, although the “new case” rate has reduced.
The updated Q+A mainly comprises a document restructuring, with a few updates to previous questions.
