Council of EU Approves Commission Delegated Regulation to Extend PSA Transition Periods under EMIR


On February 23, 2017, the European Parliament updated its procedure file on the proposed Commission Delegated Regulation amending European Market Infrastructure Regulation (“EMIR“) (Regulation 648/2012) as regards the extension of the transitional periods related to pension scheme arrangements (PSAs).

The procedure file states that the Council has raised no objection to the Delegated Regulation.

The Commission adopted the Delegated Regulation in December 2016.

The proposed Commission Delegated Regulation will enter into force unless the European Parliament objects. If the Parliament does not object, the Delegated Regulation will enter into force the day after it is published in the Official Journal of the EU.
