On August 24, the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) published a final report (Report) setting out guidelines (Guidelines) on the transfer of data between trade repositories (TRs) under the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR).

The Guidelines apply to TRs registered or recognised by ESMA and aim to provide TRs with additional clarification on how to ensure compliance at all times with EMIR requirements.

The Guidelines apply beginning October 16. ESMA will carry out an annual assessment of TRs’ compliance with the Guidelines.
