On 24 February 2020, the FCA updated its webpage concerning the notification and disclosure of net short positions. The Short Selling Regulation (SSR) introduced a private and public notification regime for investors who hold net short positions in certain financial instruments.

The webpage describes:

  • how to register with the FCA in order to submit a short selling notification;
  • how to make the short selling notification to the FCA once registered;
  • how to correct or delete an incorrect notification to the FCA;
  • the thresholds to calculate a net short position;
  • the exemptions from the SSR; and
  • how to request guidance from the FCA.

The FCA has also published an updated electronic submission system user guide for the SSR.
