On 7 May 2015 a list of the recognised, equivalent third-country CCPs has been published for the purposes of the EMIR Regulation.

 

Among the first third-country CCPs are also the two Australian central counterparties authorised to clear emissions derivatives: ASX Clear (Futures) Pty Ltd, ASX Clear Pty Ltd. (OTC bilateral and OTC third country exchange).

  

The recognition allows the abovementioned third-country CCPs to provide clearing services to clearing members or trading venues established in the EU.
