ESMA provides further details on trade reporting in updated EMIR Q&A

The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has issued today updated Question & Answers (Q&As) on the implementation of the European Markets Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR). These updated Q&As clarify, among others, issues related to reporting to trade repositories (TRs) such as on how to construct and generate Unique Trade Identifiers (UTI), the reporting of empty/not available fields and the UPI taxonomy.

ESMA appreciates that it will require a certain amount of time for both reporting firms and TRs to properly incorporate this further guidance. Other areas covered by the updated Q&A include OTC derivatives and CCP requirements.
