ESMA ADDS CREDIT DERIVATIVES TO ITS PUBLIC REGISTER ON EMIR
The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has published today an update of its Public Register for the Clearing Obligation.
Today’s update concerns the addition of credit derivatives, notably for iTraxx main and iTraxx crossover contracts, to the clearing obligation. The public register lists the derivatives that have to be centrally cleared under the European Markets Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR). Credit derivatives will have to be centrally cleared following the publication of the relevant EMIR technical standard in the Official Journal of the European Union.
