Opening of applications for entities to register as SecRep

SecReps centrally collect and maintain the records of securitisations and will be registered and supervised by ESMA. Those entities who wish to be registered as a SecRep by ESMA can submit their applications from 23 September 2020.

Until ESMA has registered at least one SecRep, information that should be made available by reporting entities to SecReps on public securitisations must be made make it available via a website which meets certain requirements.

New disclosure templates

ESMA has developed a set of securitisation disclosure templates to improve and standardise the information made available to investors, potential investors and competent authorities.  These disclosure templates will enter into force on 23 September 2020 and must as of that date be used to make any new information available about a securitisation in accordance with Article 7 of the Securitisation Regulation.

ESMA has published guidance on how to fill in the disclosure templates in its Q&A Document on Securitisation Topics. Stakeholders with questions which are not addressed in this document are invited to submit their question(s) to ESMA through its dedicated Q&A tool. XML schema and validation rules as well as reporting instructions for these templates are available on ESMA’s website.
