Counterparties which need to report

A counterparty's obligation to report depends on its classification. Counterparties are allowed to delegate their reporting duties to the other counterparty or to third parties. Nevertheless, even when delegated to a party already reporting transactions under EMIR, FMIA reporting duties are only fulfilled if reported data corresponds to FMIA requirements (not EMIR) and data is reported to a FINMA approved Trade Repository. FMIA differentiates between four counterparty classes including FC (+/-) and NFC (+/-), see definitions below:
