This statement builds on earlier statements on the publication of databases and IT-systems published on 5 February 2019, including the update on 28 March 2019, and on 7 October 2019 informing the public of ESMA’s approach for the various databases and IT-systems in case of a no deal Brexit.
- Statement on ESMA’s Data Operational Plan. This statement complements the statement on the use of UK data in ESMA’s databases and performance of MiFID II calculations after the end of the transition period on 31 December 2020, and provides further details related to the operational use of ESMA’s IT systems during the period following the end of the transition period on 31 December 2020.
