Market infrastructures

With the entry into force of the EMIR and the CRD IV/CRR, several provisions require the EBA to 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. In order to guarantee a full and consistent implementation of the new regulations, the EBA closely collaborates with the other European Supervisory Authorities(ESAs) and the 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 is also closely monitoring the development and the implementation of the international proposals of the Basel Committee (BCBS) and International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) on market infrastructures.
