The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA), the EU’s securities markets regulator, has today published its annual report on the application of accepted market practices (AMPs) in accordance with the Market Abuse Regulation (MAR).

The number of liquidity contracts and the volumes traded under the AMPs has decreased for the four NCAs that have them in place (CNMV, CMVM, CONSOB and AMF) from June 2020 to June 2021, with only a marginal number of contracts operational under the Italian and Portuguese AMPs.

Next steps

The Report will now be submitted to the European Commission. It will help ESMA’s ongoing work in fostering supervisory convergence in the application of MAR and contribute to ESMA’s goal of developing an EU outcome-focused supervisory and enforcement culture.
