On 5 April 2019, the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) published the official translations of its guidelines on central counterparty (CCP) conflict of interest management under the European Markets Infrastructure Regulation. The guidelines will apply from 5 June 2019 (two months from the date of publication of the guidelines in the official languages of the EU). Member State national competent authorities must notify ESMA whether they comply or intend to comply with the guidelines by this date. Our earlier blog on these guidelines is here.
