European Market Infrastructure Regulation[1] (EMIR) came into force as binding law within the European Union on 16 August 2012, although certain of its requirements came into force after a period of delay.

The objective of EMIR is to reduce the risks posed to financial systems from the vast web of Over the counter (OTC) derivative transactions and the contingent large credit exposures that may arise as a consequence. The Regulation achieves this object by three significant requirements for:

• Central clearing and margining of standardised OTC derivatives (with certain exemptions for Non-Financial Counterparties)

• Reporting of all derivative transactions to a trade repository

• Risk mitigation measures for all non cleared derivatives including collateral exchange and confirmation and reconciliation procedures
