Amendment 79 #
Proposal for a regulation
Recital 4
(4) The information to be made publicly accessible on ESAP should be collected by collection bodies designated for the purpose of collecting the information that the entities are under an obligation to make public. In order to ensure the efficient functioning of ESAP, the collection bodies should make the information available to ESAP in automated ways through a single application programming interface. For the information to be digitally usable, entities should make such information available in a data extractable format or, where required by Union law, in a machine- readable format. Compared to data extractable formats, machine-readable formats are file formats structured so that software applications can easily identify, recognise and extract specific data, including individual statements of fact, and their internal structure. Draft implementing technical standards should be drawn up by the European Supervisory Authorities and, when relevant, through the Joint Committee of the European Supervisory Authorities for submission to the Commission, specifying the characteristics of machine readable and data extractable formats and accounting for any evolving technology trends or standards. To ensure that entities submit the information in the correct format and to address possible technical issues encountered by the entities, the collection bodies should provide assistance to those entities.

Proposal for a regulation
Recital 5
(5) Apart from the information in relation to financial services, capital markets and sustainability that has to be made public under Union law, investors, market participants, advisors and the public at large may have an interest in obtaining other information that an entity wants to make accessible. Small and medium-sized enterprises may want to make more information publicly accessible in order to become more visible to potential investors and thereby increase funding and diversify funding opportunities. Also, market participants may want to provide more information than that required by law or to make public the information required by national law but not available at Union level in order to complement the information provided to the public at the Union level. Any entity governed by the law of a Member State should therefore be allowed to make financial, sustainability- related and other relevant information accessible on ESAP. Pursuant to the principle of data minimisation, entities should ensure that no personal data are included, except where those data constitute a necessary element of the information about their economic activities, including when the name of the entity coincides with the name of the owner. Where such information contains personal data, the entities should ensure that they can rely for such disclosure on one of the lawful grounds of processing laid down in Article 6 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council26 . _________________ 26 Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation) (OJ L 119, 4.5.2016, p. 1).

Amendment 96 #
Proposal for a regulation
Recital 10
(10) Re-using information that is available on ESAP can improve the functioning of the internal market and promote the development of new services that combine and make use of such information. It is therefore necessary, where justified on grounds of a public interest objective, to allow re-use of the information that is available on ESAP for purposes other than the purposes for which the information was drawn up. However, the use and re-use of that information should be subject to objective, proportionate and non-discriminatory conditions. For that purpose, conditions corresponding to those laid down in open, standard licences within the meaning of Directive (EU) 2019/1024 of the European Parliament and of the Council27 should apply. The licensing terms of those standard licences should allow for data and content to be freely accessible, used, modified and shared by anyone for any purpose. ESMANeither ESMA nor the collection bodies should bear noany form of liability for the use and re-use of information accessible on ESAP. The submission of information by the collection bodies should either not be subject to conditions or be subject to an open standard licence enabling the licensing terms applying for information accessible in the ESAP. _________________ 27 Directive (EU) 2019/1024 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 June 2019 on open data and the re-use of public sector information (OJ L 172, 26.6.2019, p. 56).

Amendment 98 #
Proposal for a regulation
Recital 11
(11) The information available on ESAP should be accessible to the public in a timely manner. In that regard, the time between collecting the information and making it accessible to the public should be reasonable and, in any event, as short as technically possible. In order to ensure a uniform quality of information, the collection bodies should perform automated validations and reject invalid information. The validity of the information should be assessed on the basis of its compliance with the requirements of this Regulation and any accompanying amendments to sectoral legislation. In assessing the validity of the information, collection bodies should maintain discretion in rejecting information that falls outside the scope of ESAP and in any case if that information includes manifestly inappropriate or abusive content.
