Mechanism for Reporting of Market Abuse Infringements

Article 32 of MAR requires a Member State to ensure the competent authority establishes effective mechanisms to enable the reporting of actual or potential infringements of MAR to the competent authority concerned.

Commission Implementing Directive (EU) 2015/2392 of 17 December 2015 specifies further detail as to the mechanisms that competent authorities must put in place for this purpose.

In relation to this, the Central Bank has established its Protected Disclosures procedures, which can be accessed by any person wishing to report actual or potential infringements of MAR.
