BREXIT: 11pm (GMT) on 31 December 2020 (‘IP completion day’) marked the end of the Brexit transition/implementation period entered into following the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. Following IP completion day, key transitional arrangements come to an end and significant changes begin to take effect across the UK’s legal regime. This document contains guidance on subjects impacted by these changes. Before continuing your research, see: Brexit and financial services: materials on the post-Brexit UK/EU regulatory regime.

MiFIR trading obligation—regulatory context

The Markets in Financial Instruments Directive 2014/65/EU (MiFID II) and the Markets in Financial Instruments Regulation (EU) 600/2014 (MiFIR) were published in the Official Journal of the EU on 12 June 2014 and entered into force 20 days later on 2 July 2014. In accordance with Regulation (EU) 2016/1033, the majority of MiFID II and MiFIR provisions applied from 3 January 2018.

MiFID II and MiFIR together replace the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive 2004/39/EC (MiFID).

Regulatory technical standards (RTS) on criteria for determining whether derivatives subject to the clearing obligation under the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EU) 648/2012 (EMIR) should be subject to the trading obligation under MiFIR are set out in Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/2020.

RTS on the direct, substantial and foreseeable effect of derivative contracts within the European Union (EU) and the prevention of the evasion of rules and obligations are set out in Commission Delegated Regulation (EU)
