The Commission has adopted the Delegated Regulation amending Article 26 of the regulatory technical standards (RTS) on risk mitigation requirements for CCPs under the European Market and Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR). It amends RTS which concern the time horizons for the liquidation period to be considered for the different classes of financial instrument and which initially entered into force on 15 March 2013. The Commission’s approval follows ESMA’s final report on the proposed amendments to the margin period of risk (see FReD 8 April). The changes introduce the possibility for EU CCPs to margin on a one-day basis where a set of criteria are met, including requiring that margins are collected on a gross basis for clients’ accounts.
