Alleviations of reporting obligations for non-financial companies needed
Deutsches Aktieninstitut welcomes the EU Commission`s consultation on a fitness check of supervisory reporting requirements under European financial markets regulation. In its response, Deutsches Aktieninstitut illustrates with quantitative evidence costs for German as well as European companies for compliance with the requirements under the derivatives regulation EMIR. To reduce costs for non-financial companies, we suggest to exempt those companies from the obligation to report intragroup transactions. Also, we recommend to require the financial counterparty to report a derivative transaction for both itself and the non-finnacial counterparty.
