This article provides that ESMA shall develop guidelines with a view to establishing common reference parameters of the stress test scenarios to be included in the stress tests that MMFs or managers of MMFs are required to conduct. In contrast with their previous version, these latest ESMA guidelines now include common reference stress test scenarios as well as common reference parameters for those scenarios.
