Market infrastructures

With the entry into force of the EMIR and the CRD IV/CRR, several provisions require the EBA to issue regulatory technical standards, opinions and reports on the interaction between credit institutions and investment firms on the one hand and market infrastructures on the other hand. To guarantee the full and consistent implementation of the regulations, the EBA closely collaborates with the other European Supervisory Authorities (ESAs) and the European System of Central Banks (ESCB) for the prudential requirements of banks' exposures to Central Counterparties (CCPs), CCP capital, Central Securities Depositories (CSD), and the over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives reform. The EBA also closely monitors the development and implementation of international proposals on market infrastructures from the Basel Committee (BCBS) and International Organisation of Securities Commissions (IOSCO).
