On 7 June 2013, the European Commission published regulatory technical standards (RTS) on colleges for central counterparties (CCPs), as required under EMIR.

The RTS address the operational organisation and governance of supervisory colleges that must be set up to scrutinise the application of a CCP for authorisation under EMIR. The provisions also address issues relating to participation in the college, exchange of information among regulatory authorities, conditions relating to delegation and sharing of tasks by members of the college, and how to determine which are the most relevant currencies (as this is used to decide which central banks should participate in each college).

The RTS will enter into force on the twentieth day following publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.
