AFB Seminar: EMIR Refit – Understanding the Changes & Challenges

The European Markets Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) Refit (or EMIR 3.0) is set to go live on 29 April 2024 in the EU and on 30 September 2024 in the UK. The deadlines are approaching against a background of the regulators continuing to take action against banks who fail to report correctly and maintain a strong transaction reporting control framework.

AFB is holding an in-person seminar with PwC to provide members with practical tips on the implementation of the changes required for the Refit.

Why attend?

The Refit changes to the requirements are significant and complex and banks will require dedicated programmes and personnel to meet these new requirements. This seminar will use real-life case studies to help members understand how to approach these challenges.

What will members gain for use at their bank?

  • An understanding of the key regulatory changes being made to the current and future reporting obligations
  • An understanding of the milestones of an EMIR Refit transformation programme and the key implementation challenges, including technology and data sourcing
  • An understanding of what a strong EMIR reporting control framework looks like and the specific control changes required for EMIR Refit

Who should attend?

This seminar is aimed at practitioners who have responsibility for implementing and overseeing the EMIR Refit. They will typically be in Operations and Technology teams as well as compliance officers.
