The European Securities and Markets Authority has issued a consultation paper seeking input on proposed regulatory technical standards for establishing a clearing obligation for additional classes of interest rate swaps that were not included in a prior RTS for IRS clearing obligations. The additional classes of IRS are fixed-to-float IRSs denominated in Czech Koruna, Danish Krone, Hungarian Forint, Norwegian Krone (NOK), Swedish Krona (SEK) and Polish Zloty (PLN) and forward rate agreements denominated in NOK, SEK and PLN. Comments will be accepted by ESMA through July 15.
