ESMA, 04 October 2023
Reasons for publication
To alleviate liquidity pressures observed in cleared energy markets in spring and summer 2022, ESMA adopted on 14 October 2022 a Final Report revising its regulatory technical standards (RTS) for central counterparties to temporarily expand the pool of eligible collateral by central counterparties (CCPs) to uncollateralised bank guarantees for Non-Financial Counterparties (NFCs) acting as clearing members and to public guarantees for all types of counterparties. These measures contained in Delegated Regulation adopted by the European Commission on 22 October 2022, which amends the RTS, are expiring on 29 November 2023.
