About the training session

Objectives

This training aims at explaining to the participants the global picture of the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) and its provisions. EMIR intends to reduce the counterparty and operational risk which is inherent to over-the-counter (OTC) derivative contracts. In this context, several provisions applicable for financial counterparties as well as non-financial counterparties are developed on a European level.

​Furthermore, the training content will be adapted in the context of the legislative proposal published by the European Commission to amend EMIR (the “EMIR Review”). Although no fundamental change is expected on the nature of the core requirements of EMIR, which are integral to ensuring transparency and mitigating systemic risks in the derivatives markets, some areas will be adapted, in particular where action may be necessary to ensure fulfilment of the objectives of EMIR in a more proportionate, efficient and effective manner.
