EACT Supports Cross-Industry Request for Extension of the Third Country Benchmarks Transition Period

The signatories of this paper believe it is critically important that the transition period for third country benchmarks under the Benchmarks Regulation (BMR) should be extended beyond the end of 2021 to end-2025. Non-financial companies rely on third country financial benchmarks to hedge financial risks arising from their commercial activities. This is for instance the case with non-deliverable forward FX contracts. Extending the transition period for use of third country benchmarks in the EU – thereby allowing for more time to reform the BMR – would avoid the disruptive impact a prohibition on use of such rates would have on corporate commercial risk mitigation activities.
