The Bank of England has updated its list of UK authorised CCPs to include the authorisation of ICE Clear Europe Limited. ESMA has also added ICE Clear Europe Ltd to its own list of authorised CCPs. EMIR requires CCPs to be authorised by a college of supervisors in order to offer CCP services in the EU. Once a CCP has been authorised or recognised within the EU, EU firms can use these CCPs to fulfil their clearing obligations.
