|The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has launched a consultation on its technical standards under the Regulation on OTC derivatives, central counterparties and trade repositories (EMIR), which is aimed at improving the functioning of OTC derivatives markets in the European Union (EU). EMIR aims to achieve this by reducing risks via the use of central clearing and risk mitigation techniques, increasing transparency via trade repositories (TR) and ensuring sound and resilient central counterparties (CCPs).|

|06/03/2012||JC/DP/2012/1||Joint Discussion Paper on Draft Regulatory Technical Standards on risk mitigation techniques for OTC derivatives not cleared by a CCP under the Regulation on OTC derivatives, CCPs and Trade Repositories||Joint Committee||Consultation Paper||PDF
|EBA, EIOPA and ESMA (the ESAs) invite market participants and all interested stakeholders to provide their feedback on planned regulatory technical standards covering risk mitigation techniques for OTC derivatives not cleared by central counterparties. The EMIR Regulation (“the Regulation”) on OTC Derivatives, CCPs and trade repositories introduces provisions to improve transparency and reduce the risks associated with the OTC derivatives market and establishes common rules for central counterparties (CCPs) and for trade repositories (TRs). The Regulation acknowledges that not all OTC derivatives would meet the necessary requirements to be centrally cleared. For this reason, it introduces provisions on risk mitigation techniques for OTC derivatives not cleared by a CCP.|
|16/02/2012||2012/95||Draft Technical Standards for the Regulation on OTC Derivatives, CCPs and Trade Repositories||Post Trading||Consultation Paper||PDF
|The Regulation of the European Parliament and Council on OTC Derivatives, CCPs and trade repositories (EMIR) introduces provisions to improve transparency and reduce the risks associated with the OTC derivatives market and establishes common rules for central counterparties (CCPs) and for trade repositories (TRs). It has been identified that common rules are required in the case of CCPs in view of the shift of risk management from a bilateral to a central process for OTC derivatives and in the case of trade repositories because of the increase in information that needs to be reported to them. The Regulation delegates or confers powers to the Commission to adopt regulatory technical standards (RTS) and implementing technical standards (ITS) on a number of areas. This discussion paper covers the draft RTS and ITS which ESMA is required to develop. Following this discussion paper and on the basis of the relevant input received, ESMA will prepare draft technical standards to be included in the consultation paper which will most likely be published around summer 2012.|
