Implementation of European Market Infrastructure Regulation requirements.

Implementation of European Market Infrastructure Regulation requirements.

Major requirements of EMIR Regulation (European Market Infrastructure Regulation) cover central clearing of OTC derivatives (main impact on derivatives markets), detailed risk management requirements for bilateral OTC derivatives, derivatives reporting (OTC and exchange-traded) to trade repositories and organizational requirements for CCPs and clearing members.

The main EMIR requirements that should be taken into account by market participants in the implementation process include:

  • Central clearing of OTC derivatives
  • Derivative transactions reporting to trade repositories
  • Timely exchange of collateral
  • Other requirements for bilateral OTC derivatives (timely confirmation, portfolio reconciliation, dispute resolution rules, portfolio compression, trade valuation requirements)
