LONDON, March 24 (Reuters) - The European Union's securities watchdog has fined S&P Global Ratings Europe 1.1 million euros ($1.19 million), it said on Friday after finding that S&P published credit ratings before the relevant securities had been issued.
The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) also issued a public notice for breaches of credit rating agencies regulations.
S&P can appeal against the decision, ESMA said. ($1 = 0.9234 euros)
