COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2017/1111

of 22 June 2017

laying down implementing technical standards with regard to procedures and forms for submitting information on sanctions and measures in accordance with Directive 2014/65/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Directive 2014/65/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 May 2014 on markets in financial instruments and amending Directive 2002/92/EC and Directive 2011/61/EU (1), and in particular Article 71(7) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

It is appropriate to set out common procedures and forms for competent authorities to submit information to the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) on sanctions and measures referred to in Article 71 of Directive 2014/65/EU.

(2)

In order to facilitate the communication between competent authorities and ESMA and avoid unnecessary delays or failed submissions, each competent authority should designate a contact point specifically for the purpose of communication on sanctions and measures.

(3)

To ensure that all required information concerning sanctions and measures imposed by competent authorities is correctly identified and registered by ESMA, competent authorities should provide detailed and harmonised information using specific forms to that purpose.

(4)

With a view to including meaningful information in the annual report on sanctions and measures to be published by ESMA in accordance with Article 71 of Directive 2014/65/EU, competent authorities should report the information by using specific forms clearly indicating the provisions of Directive 2014/65/EU, as transposed in their national legislation, that were infringed.

(5)

For reasons of consistency and in order to ensure the smooth functioning of the financial markets, it is necessary that the provisions laid down in this Regulation and the related national provisions transposing Directive 2014/65/EU apply from the same date.

(6)

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

(7)

ESMA did not conduct open public consultations on the draft implementing technical standards on which this Regulation is based, nor did it analyse potential related costs and benefits of introducing the standard forms and procedures for the relevant competent authorities, as this would have been disproportionate in relation to their scope and impact, taking into account that the addressees of the implementing technical standards would only be the national competent authorities of the Member States and not market participants.

(8)

ESMA has requested the opinion of the Securities and Markets Stakeholder Group established in accordance with Article 37 of Regulation (EU) No 1095/2010 of the European Parliament and of the Council (2),

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

2.   The information referred to in paragraph 1 shall be submitted to ESMA in a report file in the form set out in Annex I to this Regulation.

Article 3

Invalidating and updating of reports
