On 4 February 2019, the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) published an updated version of its Q&As on EMIR. The updated Q&As modify two questions concerning trade repositories, specifically regarding contracts with no maturity date (trade repositories Q34), and trades terminated before the reporting deadline (trade repositories Q38). A new question 50 is also inserted under the trade repositories section, asking “When should the value ‘N’ be used for the Confirmation Means field?”
