Benchmark Methodologies and Statements

The European Benchmarks Regulation (BMR) is a wide-reaching European regulation that applies a common framework to the regulation of benchmarks. Information about the status of globalCOAL's benchmarks under the BMR is provided here. The BMR benchmark statements and methodologies are also available on this section of the website.

With effect from 16 December 2019, globalCOAL has been authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, to carry on the regulated activity of administering its benchmark activities under the BMR. globalCOAL is listed on the European Securities and Markets Authoriy's (ESMA) register as an approved benchmark administrator, which can be found here. Supervised entities in the EU, such as regulated exchanges, may therefore use benchmarks published by globalCOAL. Please read the press release announcement issued here.
