What does EMIR mean?

In February, the European Parliament published the technical standards for the European Markets Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR).  The standards were published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 23 February 2013 and will enter into force on 15 March 2013.

To find out what this means, why not join us on Wednesday 14th March when we have our fifth plenary meeting of the Clearing & Settlement Working Group (CAS-WG) at the BT Auditorium, 81 Newgate Street, LONDON, EC1A 7AJ.

Each Subject Group has developed specific frameworks to model the implications

Our plenary meetings are open for anyone to attend at no charge. Following
