During this private and interactive business breakfast we will provide an overview on the current status and future developments of European Market Infrastructure Regulation
EMIR has introduced various obligations on parties to derivatives contracts, including, amongst other requirements, an obligation to report trades, to centrally clear certain types of OTC derivative contracts and to implement procedures for margining uncleared OTC derivative contracts. Whilst certain provisions of EMIR are already in force, additional regulatory technical standards continue to be published, the effect of which may have an extremely broad impact on many market participants, including those established in non-EU jurisdictions.
As we move into the next phase of implementation of EMIR, this workshop will revisit the existing obligations imposed upon relevant market participants, as well as the future implications of recent regulatory developments.
In particular, the presentation will cover:
- An overview of EMIR;
- Which counterparties are in scope;
- The extraterritorial applicability of EMIR;
- What obligations are already live;
- The proposed collateral and margin requirements; and
- The proposed clearing obligation and recent consultations.
Jason Harding, Erika Papp and Árpád Lantos
The presentation will be held in English. Please note there is no charge for attending this event, however places are limited and registration is on a first come first served basis.
