EMIR is a regulation that aims to reduce risk in OTC derivatives market, but it covers also listed derivatives since all derivatives are included in the reporting requirement.

EMIR affects both financials and corporates, but most corporates only faces stricter and more timely confirmations, portfolio reconciliaion and trade reporting requirements. Corporates above so called 'clearing thresholds" face the same requirements as financials. A 'clearing threshold' is a nominal amount of outstanding positions in an asset class.

EMIR as an European regulation has been in effect since 4th July 2012, and is valid without national law changes. However, when the various requirements in EMIR actually take effect depends on so called technical standards. Technical standards are the more detailed level of regulations, and most EMIR requirements do not take effect until the respective technical standard take effect. Several technical standards are now finalized and in effect since March 15th, other remain. Several kinds of phasing in periods can be found in the technical standards, which makes the regulatory roll-out very complex to understand.
