EMIR and forward contratcs

We recently heard from a couple of companies that they had been told that simple forward contracts do not have to be reported. Please do not believe everything that you hear, forwards of course have to be reported as well (this is EMIR, not DF). If you are not sure which financial instruments have to be reported, check out the respective section on

EMIR & Financial Instruments

Did you know which financial instruments have to be reported under EMIR? The EU Directive 32004L0039 (EUR-lex 32004L0039) is an integral part of EMIR and defines 'financial instruments'.

The full list of instruments can be found in Annex 1, Section C - it contains, among others, derivative contracts relating to climatic variables, freight rates, emission allowances. This means that e.g. forward freight agreements or emission certificates will have to be reported under EMIR as well.

We have prepared a full list of all instruments as per a.m. EU Directive in our facts section.
