Article 2 General conditions for the information through licensing to be provided to CCPs and trading venues

  1. (1)

    A person with proprietary rights to a benchmark shall make available all relevant information referred to in Article 1 requested by CCPs and trading venues through licensing without undue delay, either on a one-off basis, including amendments to previously provided information, or on a continuous or periodic basis, depending on the type of information concerned.

  2. (2)

    A person with proprietary rights to a benchmark shall provide all relevant information referred to in Article 1 to all CCPs and trading venues through licensing on the same timescales and under the same conditions, unless different conditions can be objectively justified.

  3. (3)

    The requirements in paragraphs 1 and 2 do not apply if, and for as long as, a person with proprietary rights to a benchmark can demonstrate that certain information is available publicly or through other commercial means to CCPs and trading venues, if such information is reliable and timely.
