The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has launched a consultation regarding its future technical advice to the European Commission on the Short-Selling Regulation (SSR).

ESMA is consulting on the three main elements of its advice to the EU Commission:

ESMA will evaluate to what extent the SSR has achieved its original objectives in terms of relevance, effectiveness, coherence, and efficiency, and will propose potential changes to the legal framework in its technical advice with the aim of improving the Short Selling Regulation.

ESMA expects to deliver its final advice to the European Commission by 31 December 2017.

The closing date for responding to the consultation is 4 September 2017
