3 September 2013 ESMA english version

On 3 September 2013, ESMA has published its advice to the European Commission on the equivalence of the regulatory regimes for OTC derivatives clearing, central counterparties (CCPs), and trade repositories (TR) of non-EU countries with the European Markets Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR). ESMA has assessed the equivalence of the regulatory regimes of Australia (Ref. 2013/1159), Hong Kong (Ref. 2013/1160), Japan (Ref. 2013/1158), Singapore (Ref. 2013/1161), Switzerland (Ref. 2013/1162) and the US (Ref. 2013/1157). The third-country rules were compared with EMIR requirements for central clearing, reporting, CCPs, TRs and non-financial counterparties as well as risk mitigation techniques for uncleared trades.
