ESMA updates list of authorised CCP and Public Register

The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has published today an update of its list of central clearinghouses (CCPs) which are authorised under the European Markets Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) and its Public Register for the Clearing Obligation.

Today’s update concerns Nasdaq OMX Clearing AB which has extended its activities and services, a fact which under EMIR requires a new authorisation by the competent authority.

Nasdaq OMX Clearing AB was first authorised on 18 March 2014. It has been re-authorised today for exchange-traded and OTC FX derivatives.
