Joint trade association letter to EC on equivalence and recognition of UK CCPs

16 September 2021

Nine industry associations (AFME, AIMA, EAPB, EBF, EFAMA, FIA, ICI, ISDA, SIFMA AMG) – representing the broadest group of market participants – have written to European Commissioner Mairead McGuinness, respectfully requesting that the European Commission (EC) extend the EC equivalence decision for UK CCPs.

This equivalence decision is set to expire on 30 June 2022, although the associations request the EC to provide clarity as soon as possible and well in advance of March 2022 in order to prevent negative financial, commercial, operational and level playing field effects on EU counterparties and clearing members and to enable continued access to global pools of liquidity after 30 June 2022.
