COMMISSION DELEGATED REGULATION (EU) 2017/391

of 11 November 2016

supplementing Regulation (EU) No 909/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to regulatory technical standards further specifying the content of the reporting on internalised settlements

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 909/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 July 2014 on improving securities settlement in the European Union and on central securities depositories and amending Directives 98/26/EC and 2014/65/EU and Regulation (EU) No 236/2012 (1), and in particular the second subparagraph of Article 9(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has considered the ‘Report on the outcome of the Committee of European Banking Supervisors call for evidence on custodian banks' internalisation of settlement and Central Counterparties-like activities’ of 17 April 2009, which showcases considerable differences regarding the rules and monitoring procedures at the level of settlement internalisers across Member States, as well as regarding the understanding of the concept of internalised settlement.

(2)

In accordance with Regulation (EU) No 909/2014, settlement internalisers are to report on settlements that they internalise. In order to provide a good overview of the scope and of the extent of internalised settlements it is necessary to specify further the content of such reporting. The reports on internalised settlement should provide detailed information on the aggregated volume and value of settlement instructions settled by settlement internalisers outside securities settlement systems specifying asset class, type of securities transactions, type of clients, and issuer central securities depository (CSD).

A settlement internaliser should only report internalised settlements where it has executed a settlement instruction by a client of the settlement internaliser in its own books. A settlement internaliser should not report subsequent alignments of book-entry positions to reflect the settlement of instructions by other entities in the holding chain of securities, as these do not qualify as internalised settlement. Similarly, a settlement internaliser should not report transactions executed on a trading venue and transferred by the trading venue to a central counterparty (CCP) for clearing or to a CSD for settlement.

(3)

In order to facilitate data comparability across settlement internalisers, calculations related to the value of internalised settlement instructions under this Regulation should be based on objective and reliable data and methodologies.

(4)

The reporting requirements set out in this Regulation may require significant IT system changes, market testing and adjustments to legal arrangements of the institutions concerned. It is therefore necessary to give those institutions sufficient time to prepare for the application of those requirements.

(5)

This Regulation is based on the draft regulatory technical standards submitted by ESMA to the Commission.

(6)

ESMA has conducted open public consultations on the draft regulatory technical standards on which this Regulation is based, analysed the potential related costs and benefits and requested the opinion of the Securities and Markets Stakeholder Group established in accordance with Article 10 of Regulation (EU) No 1095/2010 of the European Parliament and of the Council (2).

(7)

In accordance with Article 9(2) of Regulation (EU) No 909/2014, in developing the draft regulatory technical standards on which this Regulation is based, ESMA has worked in close cooperation with the members of the European System of Central Banks,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

For the purposes of this Regulation the following definitions apply:

(1)

‘Internalised settlement instruction’ means an instruction by a client of the settlement internaliser to place at the disposal of the recipient an amount of money or to transfer the title to, or interest in, a security or securities by means of a book entry on a register, or otherwise, which is settled by the settlement internaliser in its own books and not through a securities settlement system.

(2)

‘Failed internalised settlement instruction’ means non-occurrence of settlement, or partial settlement, of a securities transaction at the date agreed by the parties concerned due to a lack of securities or cash, regardless of the underlying cause.
