Publication ESMA report on CRA supervision 2012

News This news is older than 3 years. Therefore it is possible that the information is no longer valid.

The European supervisor ESMA (European Securities and Markets Authority) has published for the second year a report on the supervision of Credit Rating Agencies (CRAs) in the EU. In this report ESMA explains their risk based supervisory activities they conducted at organizations like Moody’s, Fitch and S&P.

ESMA has identified progress by CRAs in their activities including improved disclosure of methodologies and ratings; internal control resources; involvement of senior management in governance and record-keeping practices. However, the report finds that CRAs have not sufficiently embedded the main requirements of the CRA Regulation in their organisations, and ESMA believes that improvements are still necessary
