ESMA has published a public register of derivatives contracts subject to the trading obligation under Article 34 MiFIR and the regulatory technical standards (RTS) on the trading obligation for derivatives
(Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2017/2417).
In particular, the register is intended to clarify the application of the trading obligation in relation to:
- the classes of derivatives subject to the trading obligation;
- trading venues on which those derivatives can be traded; and
- the dates on which the obligation takes effect per category of counterparties.
ESMA has also published a list of trading venues that are subject to a transitional exemption from the access provisions under Article 36(5) of MiFIR for exchange-traded derivatives (ETDs).
