-- [ Page 3 ] --

National implementation laws and regulations The EMIR Regulations are directly applicable in Hungary. In order to properly execute and manage the obligations under the EMIR Regulations, Act XCVIII of 2013 has been issued which amended existing Hungarian regulatory legislation, the Capital Market Act, Act on Settlement Finality in Payment and Securities Settlement Systems. Detailed provisions on the regulatory powers of MNB are set forth in Act CXXXIX of 2013 on the National Bank of Hungary (“MNB Act”).

Competent national authority’s measures to control central counterparties According to subheading 27 (control procedure) of the MNB Act, the MNB is entitled to conduct on-site audits. On-site audits may be conducted at any location where evidence necessary for ascertaining the relevant facts of the case can be found. Within their sphere of authority, persons conducting the audit may

1. enter premises necessary for conducting the audit;

2. inspect documents, data storage media, objects, and work procedures related to the object of the inspection;

3. request and prepare information and statements from an inspected person, its representatives, and any other persons at the site of the inspection; and

4. carry out trial transactions.

In the interest of ascertaining the relevant facts of a case, any person or organisation is required to provide requested information in writing and to send to the MNB documents relating to the object of the inspection.

MNB may also use any documents, data or other evidence acquired legally within the framework of its proceedings in the course of other proceedings. MNB is authorised to prepare a hard mirror image of any data storage media and to inspect the data stored on the data storage media using the copy.

National rules on penalties applicable to violations of EMIR and national law provisions If a financial counterparty, non-financial counterparty or a central counterparty does not comply with the provisions of EMIR or the relevant Hungarian laws, the MNB may take various measures against and impose sanctions on the non-compliant party as specified in detail in the MNB Act and in the Capital Market Act. Such measures and sanctions include initiating the dismissal of executive employees or initiating disciplinary actions against an employee, calling an extraordinary general meeting and specifying a mandatory agenda, ordering the disclosure of specific data or information, requiring the submission of a restoration plan, appointing a regulatory commissioner, and issuing an official warning.

The MNB also has the power to impose administrative fines in the amount of up to HUF 2 billion (approximately EUR 6,6 million), or up to 200% of the annual supervision fee (including both the minimum charge and the variable-rate fee) if this is higher than HUF 2 billion (approximately EUR 6,6 million). Fines which can be imposed on directors and executive employees range from HUF 100,000 (approximately EUR 330), to HUF 20 million (approximately EUR 66,000). Fines imposed on a director or an executive employee may not be covered by the audited organisation.

POLAND

Competent national authority responsible for the supervision and execution of EMIR In Poland, the authorities responsible for the supervision of central counterparties, trade repositories, financial and non-financial counterparties and their activities are the Polish Financial Supervision Authority (Komisja Nadzoru Finansowego – “KNF”) and the National Depositary of Securities (Krajowy Depozyt Papierów Wartościowych – “KDPW”).

National implementation laws and regulations The EMIR Regulations are directly applicable in Poland. In order to properly execute and manage the obligations under the EMIR Regulations, Poland has already implemented changes in the Polish Act on Trading in Financial Instruments (Ustawa o obrocie instrumentami finansowymi) and the Polish Act on Capital Markets Supervision (Ustawa o nadzorze nad rynkiem kapitałowym) by legislation dated 28 June 2012, 24 October 2012, 24 April 2014 and 5 December 2014. Apart from implementing measures required by the EMIR Regulations, the amendments also implemented Regulation No. 236/2012 on short selling and certain aspects of credit default swaps. The last changes entered into force on 16 July 2015.

Competent national authority’s measures to control central counterparties According to the implementing measures applied under EMIR, the KNF is the competent administrative body for regulatory filings relating to a CCP license. As such, KNF is entitled to exercise administrative control over CCPs, including the right to request information relating to their functioning and financial standing as well as the right to direct audits.

KNF’s competences are as in EMIR. The procedure of requesting information from national authorities of other Member States is regulated by agreements concluded with them. The KDPW is authorised to assign Legal Entity Identifiers and to collect information on financial instruments transactions.

National rules on penalties applicable to violations of EMIR and national law provisions If a financial counterparty, non-financial counterparty or a central counterparty does not comply with the provisions of EMIR or national legislation, the KNF will be entitled to impose fines on such companies. According to the current draft, the fine may amount up to 10% of turnover disclosed in the latest financial statement; but not exceeding PLN 10,000,000 (approximately EUR 2,4 million) in the case of financial counterparties and CCPs and PLN 1,000,000 (approximately EUR 244,000) in the case of non-financial counterparties.





Such penalties would be subject to the completion of required administrative proceedings against the infringing parties. Beside penalties, the KNF may prohibit CCPs from investing, profits distributing or performing transactions in the case of probable violation of interests of market participants or a non-performance of obligations towards its members. There are also criminal sanctions provided for revealing or usage of confidential information otherwise than specified in EMIR: up to 3 years of imprisonment and up to PLN 1,000,000 fine.
