Conclusions from ACER’s “EMIT” forum and a WhatsApp deletion issue

ACER’s “EMIT” forum, held last week in Ljubljana, covered a spectrum of matters related to REMIT’s implementation. The topics included:

  • Inside information (including the currently open consultation which can be found here).
  • Questions of market manipulation  – enforcements and investigations.
  • Data collection.
  • Cooperation between regulatory bodies.
  • The issue of budget and the likely future ability for ACER to charge fees was also discussed.

The slides, together with the conclusion, can be found here.

Iain McGowan, Managing Director at The Regulatory Compliance Specialists  has issued an initial write up of the event, which can be found here on LinkedIn. Further write ups are to follow.

WhatsApp deletion

The UK’s Financial Conduct Authority has charged Konstantin Vishnyak with the “destruction of documents” under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 via the deletion of WhatsApp from his phone, despite it being required for an investigation. Mr Vishnyak has pleaded not guilty. The notice from the FCA can be found here.
