Market Abuse Regulation (MAR)—level 2 and level 3 measures

BREXIT: 11pm (GMT) on 31 December 2020 (‘IP completion day’) marked the end of the Brexit transition/implementation period entered into following the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. Following IP completion day, key transitional arrangements come to an end and significant changes begin to take effect across the UK’s legal regime. This document contains guidance on subjects impacted by these changes. Before continuing your research, see: Brexit and financial services: materials on the post-Brexit UK/EU regulatory regime.

Market Abuse Regulation level 2 and 3 measures

The purpose of this Practice Note is to provide an overview of the technical standards, technical advice and guidelines adopted in relation to the Market Abuse Regulation.

Whilst the Market Abuse Regulation provides relatively detailed provisions in some areas (for example setting out a number of activities which will comprise market manipulation under Article 12 (1)), a number of key areas were left to be considered at levels 2 and 3 of the Lamfalussy process. Depending on the mandate contained in the Market Abuse Regulation, ESMA either developed regulatory technical standards (RTS) endorsed by the Commission by means of delegated acts under Article 290 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) or implementing technical standards (ITS) which are adopted by the Commission by means of implementing acts under Article 291 of the TFEU.
