The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has published an updated version of its protocol on the operation of the MiFID database.

The protocol describes the tasks and responsibilities of national competent authorities, and ESMA staff respectively, under Article 33 of the MiFID Implementing Regulation to make certain calculations regarding shares admitted to trading on a regulated market (and to some extent “liquid shares”). The protocol also contains practical guidance on how to conduct the calculations as well as the necessary technical instructions.
