The EU Short Selling Regulation specifies which transparency obligations must be fulfilled with regard to short selling activities. According to the specifications, there is a two-tier transparency system for net short positions in shares, which is linked to reporting obligations if thresholds are reached or fallen below.
Net short positions must be notified to the competent national authority (Articles 5 and 6 EU Short Selling Regulation). According to Article 5 (1) and (2) EU Short Selling Regulation, an initial notification has to be made when the net short position reaches 0.1% of the issued share capital of the company concerned (1st step). If the net short position reaches 0.5% of the issued share capital, it must also be published in the respective reporting registers in accordance with Art. 6 (1) and (2) EU Short Selling Regulation (2nd stage).
