The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA), the EU's securities markets regulator, has decided, in view of the effects of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic on stakeholders and market participants, to extend the response date for the consultation on the technical standards on reporting, data quality, data access and registration of Trade Repositories under EMIR REFIT to 3 July 2020.

The decision has been taken in recognition of market participants' current focus on crisis work and their operational constraints, as well as taking into account the high number and the technical complexity of issues on which feedback is requested.

The end of the consultation period is extended from 19 June to 3 July 2020.
