Emir Trade Reporting Delegation Agreement
Although the reference to `counterparties` initially created some confusion, ESMA clarified the position in its `Questions and Answers` (Q&A) document: the reporting obligation applies only to FCS and AUXN. In today`s blog post on the EMIR reporting mandate for derivatives trading, we see the delegated report. For full disclosure, the parent company of this blog, Cappitech, offers delegated reporting services to help companies automate their EMIR and MIFID II reporting requirements. Delegated verification of CAS reports – As part of a broader EMIR data quality check, which began in 2018, a number of investment firms have informed a number of investment firms of issues related to their EMIR submissions. In many cases, especially in fund companies, the declared companies were reported by their bank counter-parties. Therefore, companies need to have a process in place to ensure that bids made on their behalf are correct. Unlike other requirements under EMIR and EMIR that require CFs and NSCs to require their counterparties (wherever established, i.e. including TCEs) to meet the applicable requirements, the reporting obligation does not have this extraterritorial scope. Although FCs and LESCs are required to communicate to a trade repository the details of any derivative contract entered into, amended or closed (regardless of where their counterparties are located), FCs are not required to submit self-reporting. Each Party agrees that, in the case of the non-reporting counterparty with respect to a swap under the Agreement that is an “international swap” (as defined in CFTC Regulation 45.1), 5 it shall inform the reporting counterparty of such an international swap as soon as possible and in accordance with the procedures for notifying the identity of (i) any non-U.S. person. a non-registered trade repository with the CFTC to which the non-reporting counterparty or its representative notified the swap and (ii) the swap identifier used by these non-US companies.

The reporting requirement is the latest in a series of obligations imposed on derivative counterparties in Europe under the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR), which entered into force in August 2012 in response to the European Union`s commitments to subject the derivatives market to stronger regulation. Although ESMA has communicated to the European Commission in a letter that the start of the notification of exchange-traded derivative contracts should be postponed for one year in order to allow market participants to benefit from additional guidance on the notification of such contracts, the Commission has not consented to such a delay and the FCS and LESC should expect that: that it is required, on 12 February 2014, to report on OTC and stock exchange derivatives. For NFCs, for which Nordea is currently the subject of a voluntary report, Nordea expects it to continue to report on a mandatory delegated basis. In this case, you don`t have to do anything. If you wish to carry out the EMIR message yourself at some point, you must inform Nordea of this intention.
