Market Abuse: Delegated Regulation

The new market abuse regime deriving from Market Abuse Regulation 596/2014 (EU MAR) applies from 3 July 2016 – see Regulatory Roundup 70 for further details.

The European Commission has published a Delegated Regulation (and accompanying Annexes), addressing various matters including:

  • extending the exemption to certain public bodies etc. from certain obligations and prohibitions;
  • indicators of market manipulation;
  • thresholds for the disclosure by emission allowance market participants of inside information;
  • the competent authority for the notification of delays of public disclosure of inside information;
  • the circumstances under which trading during a closed period may be permitted; and
  • types of transactions triggering the duty to notify managers’ transactions.
