ESMA published the regulatory work program for 2019. The work program provides an overview of ESMA’s Single Rulebook work. It lists all the technical standards and technical advice that ESMA has been mandated to draft by the relevant legislation. Among others, this work program lists planned activities in the areas of STS Securitization Regulation, Capital Requirements Regulation, and Sustainable Finance Action Plan.
Annex I of the regulatory work program lists the mandates for technical standards and technical advice that are contained within legislative proposals. ESMA will begin work on those mandates once the legislation has been adopted. Annex II gives the full references for the legislation in force that is referred to in this regulatory work program. Finally, Annex III gives the full references for the legislative proposals that have not yet been adopted.
