As spotted by Roger Coenen, the European Parliament voted to move forward with changes to EMIR. Follow the link below for the full text, the highlights of the vote outcome are:

  • To adjust the cleared threshold to exclude Small Financial Entities from clearing, based on their portfolio size/volume
  • Similarly Non-Financial Counterparties (NFCs) also to see revised threshold for clearing
  • That a trade between an FC and an NFC who is outside clearing, should be reported by the FC
  • Corporate groups which include an NFC can exclude the NFC from reporting
  • Another extension to the Pension fund excemption from clearing as "no solution has been found" to enable them to participate.
