On 16 September 2019 the European Money Markets Institute (EMMI) applied for authorisation as administrator of the Eonia benchmark. On 10 December 2019, following the positive advice of the college of Supervisors, the FSMA granted the requested authorisation to EMMI, by application of the European Benchmark Regulation (BMR).

On 2 July 2019 the FSMA already authorised EMMI as administrator of the EURIBOR benchmark. The authorisation was at the time restricted to the EURIBOR benchmark and did not include the Eonia benchmark. This limitation has now been removed by the decision of the FSMA of 10 December 2019.
