ESMA updates list of recognised third-country CCPs
The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has updated today its list of recognised central counterparties (CCPs) based in third countries.
Today’s update concerns:

The European Markets Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) requires third-country CCPs to be recognised by ESMA in order to operate in the European Union.
