The Allen & Overy Podcast

Beyond Brexit - Introduction to UK EMIR

February 8, 2019

In this episode of our Brexit podcast series, Emma Dwyer, partner, and Emma Lancelott, senior lawyer, in our Derivatives and Structured Finance practice discuss what the UK version of the European Markets Infrastructure Regulation, otherwise known as UK EMIR, will look like and the likely practical effect of the onshoring of EMIR in a hard Brexit scenario.

Please be aware that, since the date of recording, the UK FCA has issued a statement on the use of transitional powers post hard Brexit clarifying they will not be used in the context of EMIR reporting – you should bear this in mind when listening to the final section of the podcast. We note that, although the content is correct as at the date of recording, the legal position is evolving in this space and we cannot guarantee that there will not be additional developments in this area. However, the podcast should nonetheless provide a useful overview of the basic position and the key issues arising.
