Updated EMIR Q&A issued by ESMA

27.09.2018

The Questions and Answers regarding the implementation of EMIR (the EMIR Q&A) were updated by ESMA on 26 September 2018.

A new section, TR Question 49, has been added for the reporting of FX swap derivatives with specifications for how to determine the roles of buyer and seller. The new specifications need to be respected by September 2019 and REGIS-TR will provide clients with further information in due time.

The updated EMIR Q&A also clarifies access models to European central counterparties (CCPs) and improves the capital treatment for clearing members.

At REGIS-TR we are committed to support our clients with their regulatory reporting duties. We continuously follow the evolution of the requirements and look forward to answering any query you may have.
