Background to the publication of this guidance

The TRUP provides guidance to firms on understanding the transaction reporting obligations that come from Directive 2004/39/EC on MiFID, implemented through SUP17 of the FCA Handbook. Version 2 of the TRUP was published in September 2009.

The purpose of Version 3 is to:

  • update the document to remove historical information that is no longer relevant;
  • update references and incorporate guidelines published by the Committee of European Securities Regulators (CESR);
  • incorporate guidance published elsewhere and guidance issued since the publication of Version 2; and
  • provide clarification on areas raised by firms and trade bodies and where it is helpful in assisting the FCA to conduct its market abuse monitoring.

The proposed text for Version 3 of the TRUP was published for consultation on 3 November 2011.
