MIFID II: Final Report on Draft Technical Standards

ESMA has published its final report on draft technical standards on authorisation, passporting, registration of third country firms and co-operation between competent authorities under MiFID II and MiFIR.

The final report covers the majority of the draft technical standards on investor protection topics that ESMA is expected to develop. The remaining draft technical standards (including the draft regulatory standards on the admission of financial instruments to trading on regulated markets) that ESMA is mandated to develop under MiFID II are expected to be published by the end of 2015.
