ESMA published the responses received to the consultation paper on the clearing obligation under European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR). The consultation paper deals with amending the draft regulatory technical standards on the treatment of intragroup transactions with a third-country group entity. The consultation ran from July 11, 2018 to August 30, 2018.
The clearing obligation requires a range of interest rate and credit derivatives to be cleared. However, intragroup derivative transactions with a third-country entity, and where certain conditions are satisfied, currently do not have to be cleared due to a deferred application date in the Delegated Regulations on the clearing obligation. However, the deferred dates are soon approaching. The consultation paper sets out the reasons to extend these dates. ESMA will review the responses to this consultation to finalize the draft regulatory technical standards. The draft standards will then be submitted to EC for endorsement in the form of Commission Delegated Regulations.
