Asic consults on clearing reforms

11 September 2012  |  1591 views  |  0 Source: Asic

ASIC today issued a consultation paper proposing amendments to its regulatory guidance for clearing and settlement facilities (CS facilities) to take into account updated international standards and recent Council of Financial Regulators (the Council) policy.

The proposals seek to align ASIC's oversight of CS facilities with the recently releasedPrinciples for Financial Market Infrastructures. These have been developed by the Committee on Payment and Settlement Systems (CPSS) and Technical Committee of the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO).

The proposals will also provide certainty and transparency on how ASIC intends to put in place measures and update its existing guidance to ensure there is appropriate regulatory influence over cross-border CS facilities. These measures have been set out in the Council's paper Ensuring Appropriate Influence for Australian Regulators over Cross-Border Clearing and Settlement Facilities.

The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) is also consulting on complementary proposals to determine new financial stability standards to take into account these policy developments.

Submissions on ASIC's proposed amendments close on 19 October 2012.
