EU Consultation on Revised Guidelines on Periodic Reporting by Credit Rating Agencies
07/19/2018The European Securities and Markets Authority has launched a consultation on proposed revised Guidelines on periodic reporting by credit rating agencies. Under the EU Credit Rating Agencies Regulation, ESMA is responsible for direct supervision of EU CRAs registered with it. ESMA wishes to update its existing Guidelines, first published in 2015, to better reflect ESMA's supervisory powers and duties. In particular, ESMA does not consider that the current approach of determining reporting requirements according supervisory fees matches its risk-based approach to supervision. ESMA is proposing to establish reporting categorizations for CRAs as well as reporting calendars based on reporting categorization. Furthermore, ESMA is proposing to standardize the reporting templates and to provide additional reporting instructions.
The consultation closes on September 26, 2018. ESMA intends to publish the Final Report on the Guidelines before the end of 2018.
