ESMA updated questions and answers (Q&A) on the Securitization Regulation (Regulation 2017/2402). This version of the Q&A document includes a summary table giving an easy overview of the Q&A list. The new Q&A relate to, among others, the securitization repositories, simple, transparent, and standardized (STS) notifications, disclosure requirements and templates, underlying exposures to real estate and corporates, investor reports, and inside information or significant event information.
The majority of Q&A in this document provide clarification on different aspects of the templates contained in the draft technical standards on disclosure, which the EC recently published. The sets of Q&A clarify how certain fields in the templates should be completed. The order of certain answers in the document was slightly adjusted compared to the previous version, in an effort to group Q&A treating similar topics. To ensure traceability, the overview table lists the number of each Q&A in the previous version where it is different from the new version. The purpose of this Q&A document is to promote common, uniform, and consistent supervisory approaches and practices in the day-to-day application of the Securitization Regulation and help regulated entities comply with their obligations.
