On 19 December 2019, the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) published its 2020 calendar of MiFID II / MiFIR relevant publications for the transparency regime and systematic internalisers’ tests.

During 2020, ESMA will publish for the first-time transparency and systemic internalisers calculations for derivatives. During 2019, publications on derivatives were not executed given the observed data quality problems and the operational impact on ESMA of contingency preparations for the announced no-deal Brexit dates. In 2020, ESMA and Member State national competent authorities are working to publish this information from April, however due to pending quality issues, the scope of derivatives classes to be published will not be entirely complete.

The scheduled publication dates may be updated during the year as appropriate. Further information will be released upon the execution of the publications or in case of relevant delays or corrections.
