ESMA updated questions and answers (Q&A) on the Securitization Regulation (EU Regulation 2017/2402). The majority of new Q&A in this document provide clarification on different aspects of the templates contained in the draft technical standards on disclosure, which have been published on EC website. The document clarifies how several fields in the templates should be completed, including questions that are specific to fields in the ABCP template. The document also contains clarifications addressed to securitization repositories.
The Q&A tool is intended to promote common, uniform, and consistent supervisory approaches and practices in the day-to-day application of the Securitization Regulation and to help regulated entities comply with their obligations. ESMA will continue to develop this Q&A on the Securitization Regulation in the coming months and will review and update them where required. For ease of reference, ESMA has provided the date each question was first published as well as the date/s of amendment beside each question. Additional questions on the Securitization Regulation may be submitted to ESMA through the Q&A tool on its website.
