Following the first Open Anti-Abuse meetings run in March 2019 (see here), the 2nd and 3rd events have been announced for November 2019 in Amsterdam and March 2020 in London.
ETR Advisory and the Market Abuse Centre jointly organise the events for the energy and commodities industries. They are open to all professionals in the European energy and commodities markets to provide a public mechanism to discuss issues arising out of the implementation of MAR and REMIT. No membership of any organisation or venue is required to take part. Attendees must work in a role connected with anti-abuse activity or technology to participate.
The coordinators bring the meetings to the industry on a non-commercial basis, with charges used to fund venue hire and logistical costs. The intention of the forum is to allow open discussion on the real issues that market participants face when implementing these rules. All roles connected to the industry are invited, which spans not only market participants, venues and regulators, but also technology providers and advisers.
