OTC deriva­tives

The Delegated Regulation on risk-mitigation techniques for non-standardised OTC derivatives was published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 15 December 2016. It came into force on 4 January 2017. The underlying regulatory technical standards were developed jointly by the three European Supervisory Authorities (ESAs), since the requirements for OTC derivatives are to be applied across the different sectors.
