EMIR Refit, or the European Market Infrastructure Regulation Refit, represents a significant revision and enhancement of the original EMIR (European Market Infrastructure Regulation) framework. EMIR Refit was introduced to streamline and improve the functioning of the European derivatives market, making it more efficient and transparent while reducing regulatory burdens. Here’s a more detailed overview of EMIR Refit:
EMIR Refit simplifies reporting requirements for market participants. It introduces a more proportionate approach to reporting by reducing the scope of asset classes that need to be reported.
The regulation includes a broader exemption for intragroup transactions. This means that transactions between companies within the same group are subject to reduced reporting requirements.
EMIR Refit enhances the quality of data reported to trade repositories, ensuring that the data is accurate, complete, and consistent across different market participants.
The Refit introduces a revised regime for clearing thresholds, which determine whether certain derivatives contracts must be cleared through central clearing counterparties (CCPs). This change aims to align clearing obligations more closely with the systemic risk posed by different market participants.
EMIR Refit introduces a new category of market participants known as Small Financial Counterparties (SFCs). These are financial counterparties with relatively low derivative activity, and they are subject to reduced obligations.
The Refit includes provisions for the recognition of third-country central counterparties (CCPs). This is important for derivatives trading with entities outside the EU, ensuring that cross-border activities are appropriately regulated.
The threshold for NFCs determining whether they are subject to clearing obligations or risk mitigation requirements has been raised, exempting more entities from certain EMIR obligations.
EMIR Refit allows for the discontinuation of derivatives reporting for some small and non-financial counterparties under certain conditions.
The regulation also addresses margin requirements for non-cleared OTC (over-the-counter) derivatives. It aligns the phase-in periods for initial margin requirements with international standards and introduces a small counterparty exemption.
EMIR Refit enhances risk mitigation techniques, such as portfolio compression, to reduce counterparty credit risk. It also allows more flexibility in the application of such techniques.
EMIR Refit improves transparency by requiring financial counterparties to keep records of derivative contracts, ensuring that they can be efficiently retrieved.
The European Commission is required to review the impact and effectiveness of the EMIR Refit regulation to ensure that it meets its intended objectives.
EMIR Refit is a response to lessons learned from the implementation of the original EMIR regulation and aims to strike a balance between reducing regulatory burdens and ensuring the continued stability and transparency of the derivatives market in the European Union. Market participants, including financial institutions, have had to adapt their operations and reporting processes to comply with the changes introduced by EMIR Refit. Compliance with these regulations is essential for entities involved in derivatives trading within the EU.
