The publication of these ITS follows two other sets of Technical Standards on the implementation of MiFID II published in June and September. ESMA’s different sets of Technical Standards have been sent for endorsement to the European Commission.

ESMA has published Implementing Technical Standards regarding the implementation of the Market in Financial Instruments Directive. ESMA’s ITS translate how the legislation will apply in practice to market participants, market infrastructures and national supervisors.

•    cooperation arrangements for trading venue of substantial importance in a host Member State;

•    suspension and removal of financial instruments from trading on a Regulated Market (RM), a Multilateral Trading Facility (MTF) or an Organised Trading Facility (OTF);

•    authorisation of data reporting services providers;

•    cooperation between competent authorities in supervisory activities, on-site verifications, and investigations and for the exchange of information;
