Dear European Securities and Markets Authority,
Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:
on 17 October 2017 at 15:53 Joanna Lednicka of ESMA sent a broadcast email to a large number of firms with an Excel file related to the SFTR regulation.
It is sometimes called a field-specification document or validation spec.
Please provide the aforementioned Excel sheet that was sent to a large number or organisations.
Dear sir or Madam,
Thank you for your message.
We value your input and question raised on this issue. As with all
relevant questions that are submitted to us by external sources, we have
taken note of the points raised and are consulting internally as well as
with the relevant ESMA committees to assess whether further public
guidance is needed. Please refer to
https://www.esma.europa.eu/questions-and... for information on
criteria followed by ESMA to accept and prioritise questions.
Please note that ESMA endeavours to reply within two months to factual
questions received and within four to six months to policy questions that
raise new points of interpretation.
Please also note that a question is much more useful when submitted
together with a proposed answer. We would therefore be grateful if you
could suggest possible answers should you need guidance on other issues in
Finally, please note that this inbox only handles general enquiries. If
you are contacting us to make a complaint, you should first refer to the
complaints section of the ESMA website. There you will find information on
how ESMA can help and who you should contact to make your complaint.
Dear Mr Martin,
We would like to refer you to the request for Access to Documents you
filed pursuant to Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 on 7 February 2018 in which
you asked to get access to "an Excel file related to the SFTR regulation".
Against this background, please find attached the requested document.
Finally, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that the
disclosed document is still a draft.
With kind regards
