The European Parliament,

–  having regard to the letter from the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs to the Chair of the Conference of Committee Chairs of 2 September 2020,

–  having regard to Article 290 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

–  having regard to Regulation (EU) No 648/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 4 July 2012 on OTC derivatives, central counterparties and trade repositories(1), and in particular Articles 25d(3) and 82(6) thereof,

–  having regard to Rule 111(6) of its Rules of Procedure,

–  having regard to the recommendation for a decision of the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs,

–  having regard to the fact that no objections have been raised within the period laid down in the third and fourth indents of Rule 111(6) of its Rules of Procedure, which expired on 15 September 2020,

A.  whereas several delegated acts to be adopted under the recently amended Regulation (EU) No 648/2012 (EMIR) specify how EMIR rules will apply to third-country central counterparties (CCPs) that provide services to Union firms; whereas those delegated acts will give effect to the enhanced powers of the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA); whereas third-country CCPs that are considered to be systemically important for the financial stability of the Union or any of its Member States should be subject to specific requirements and enhanced supervision by ESMA in order to ensure a level playing field with Union CCPs and to safeguard the stability of the Union’s financial system;

B.  whereas Article 25d empowers the Commission to adopt a delegated act in order to specify further details regarding the fees that ESMA should charge to third-country CCPs in order to cover all costs incurred for the recognition and the performance of its tasks in relation to third-country CCPs;

C.  whereas this delegated regulation should enter into force as a matter of urgency to ensure that third-country CCPs contribute adequately to ESMA’s funding in a timely and appropriate manner;

1.  Declares that it has no objections to the delegated regulation;

2.  Instructs its President to forward this decision to the Council and the Commission.
