The information must be made public by the issuer (or the emission allowance market participant) promptly and no later than 3 business days after the transaction.

A threshold of EUR5,000 in value of transactions (without netting) per calendar year applies, above which all subsequent transactions must be notified to the Central Bank.  

The following transactions are notifiable under Article 19 of MAR -

  • transactions in emission allowances, auction products based thereon or derivatives relating thereto.
