The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has established two Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) under the European Markets Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) with the Mexican Comisiόn Nacional Bancaria y de Valores (CNBV) and the South African Financial Services Board (FSB).

The MoUs are effective as of 26 January 2016 for the CNBV and 30 November 2015 for the FSB. The MoUs establish cooperation arrangements, including the exchange of information, regarding central counterparties that are established and authorised or recognised in Mexico or South Africa, and which have applied for EU recognition under EMIR.
