Letter to EC and ESAs on Time-limited Derogations for Intragroup Transactions and Equity Options and Indexes

ISDA welcomes the final report of the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) on the clearing Regulatory Technical Standards (clearing RTS) under the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR), proposing an extension of the equivalent derogation until December 21, 2020. We ask the European Commission and European Supervisory Authorities to take a similar approach to the derogations under the margin RTS by extending these for two additional years. ISDA believes that an extension would prevent market fragmentation and instability until further equivalence decisions can be adopted.
