Trade repository (under EMIR)
Under the European Market Infrastructure Regulation all derivatives deals – over-the-counter and exchange-traded – must be reported to a registered trade repository by both the buyer and seller. All parties must report their trades. Trades must be reported if a repository for the product type has been registered. Third parties act as trade repositories that then make the information available to the European Securities and Markets Authority. The requirement to report commodity derivatrives took effect on January 2, 2014.
