On 13 December 2019, the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) published a table that includes information shared by Member State national competent authorities (NCAs) in relation to the applications for authorisation and registration by EU-based administrators under Article 51(1) of the Benchmark Regulation (BMR) for which, as of 1 January 2020, the decision by the relevant NCA is still pending.

Under Article 51(3) of the BMR, EU supervised entities can continue to use existing benchmarks provided by the administrators included in the table unless and until such authorisation or registration is refused.
