ESMA published the first set of questions and answers (Q&A) on practical issues regarding the implementation of the Benchmarks Regulation. The Q&A include two answers regarding the transitional provisions under the Benchmarks Regulation, clarifying which benchmarks supervised entities will be allowed to use after January 01, 2018.
This document is intended to be a practical convergence tool for promoting common supervisory approaches and practices in the application of the Benchmarks Regulation. It should also help investors and other market participants by providing clarity on the requirements. ESMA will periodically review these Q&A and update them as required.
