FCA publishes instructions for accessing and downloading FCA FITRS files

We have built FCA FITRS (Financial Instruments Transparency System) to replace ESMA FITRS in the UK.

In March 2019 we issued our Statements of Policy on the operation of the MiFID transparency regime, a Supervisory Statement and a Technical Communication outlining how we will operate the MiFID transparency regime, if the UK leaves the EU without an implementation period.

As set out in the Supervisory Statement (PDF), if the UK leaves the EU without a deal, we will make FCA FITRS (FCA Financial Instruments Transparency System) available from exit day.

Today, we have published FCA FITRS - Instructions on access and download of full and delta transparency files (PDF) to enable firms to further their preparations.

FCA FITRS is not yet open to firms for testing; we shall make an announcement when it is.

For further information read our Statements of Policy, the Supervisory Statement (PDF), or, technical communication on the operation of the transparency regime.
