EFAMA urges changes to MBI implementation timetable

RELATED TOPICS​

Following the publication of the European Commission report confirming the settlement discipline regime will be reviewed, Susan Yavari, Regulatory Affairs Adviser at EFAMA, says concerns remain about the implementation schedule for the Mandatory Buy-in (MBI) Regime.

“In a joint industry letter to the European Commission in March, we requested clarity on the review and implementation schedule of the CSDR settlement discipline regime,” she says. “In that sense, we very much welcome the EC’s report to the European Parliament and Council from this week, in which Settlement Discipline Regime is identified as one of the main areas for review. 
 
“However, this leaves our concerns around the implementation schedule unaddressed. We are faced with the major burden of implementing requirements under the Mandatory Buy-in (MBI) Regime as of 1 February 2022 knowing these are likely to change as a result of the impact assessment that the EC is conducting following the conclusions of their report.
 
“EFAMA supports the decoupling of the implementation of the mandatory buy-in rules from all other aspects of the settlement discipline regime. Indeed, we urge the European Commission and ESMA to amend the February 2022 implementation date, and instead link implementation of MBI to the ongoing review and expected legislative proposal.”
