On 14 September 2021, the European Commission adopted a Delegated Regulation of 2 July 2021 supplementing the Market Abuse Regulation with regard to regulatory technical standards containing a template document for cooperation arrangements with third countries and an Annex containing a template document. The adoption of the Delegated Regulation had been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Council of the EU and the European Parliament will now scrutinise the Delegated Regulation.
