  • European Commission Report on Extension of Powers to Adopt Delegated Acts under MAR

    June 17, 2024
    The European Commission has published a report, addressed to the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union, on the delegation of power to adopt delegated acts conferred on the Commission under the EU Market Abuse Regulation. Under Article 35(2), the power to adopt delegated acts is conferred on the Commission for an initial period of five years, ending on December 31, 2024. In the report, the Commission explains why it considers that there is a clear need for the extension of this empowerment for a further period of five years. This is due to there being delegated acts that have not yet been adopted by the Commission—those under Articles 6(6) (extending the exemption from MAR to certain third-country designated public bodies that have entered into an agreement under the EU Emissions Trading Scheme Directive) and 38 (adjusting certain thresholds relating to reporting thresholds) of MAR. The Commission provides reasons as to why these have not yet been adopted and refers to the Listing Act legislative proposal for a Regulation containing amendments to MAR, in which co-legislators have agreed to renew the delegation of powers for a period of five years.
