On 13 October 2023, the European Securities and Markets Authority published a final report which concludes that the emergency measures on central counterparty (CCP) collateral requirements should be extended for a limited period of six months. Uncollateralised bank guarantees for non-financial counterparties acting as clearing members and public guarantees for all types of counterparties will continue to be temporarily eligible by CCPs to avoid potential disruption during the upcoming cold season. The Annexes to the final report contain the mandate for ESMA to develop draft regulatory technical standards (RTS) (Annex 1), the current applicable provisions on eligible collateral contained in Delegated Regulation 153/2013 (Annex II) and the draft RTS (Annex III). The final report will be sent to the European Commission for endorsement and then subject to non-objection by the European Parliament and the Council.
