Iosco opens consultation on derivatives data harmonisation

19 October 2016  |  2188 views  |  0 Source: Iosco

The Committee on Payments and Market Infrastructures (CPMI) and the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) have today published for public comment a consultative report on Harmonisation of critical OTC derivatives data elements (other than UTI and UPI) – second batch.

The report responds to the G20’s agreement in 2009 that all OTC derivatives contracts would be reported to trade repositories (TRs), as part of the G20’s commitment to reforming OTC derivatives markets with the aim of improving transparency, mitigating systemic risk and preventing market abuse. Aggregation of the data reported across TRs will help ensure that authorities can obtain a comprehensive view of the OTC derivatives market and its activity.

The CPMI, IOSCO and the Financial Stability Board (FSB) have in recent years published reports that laid the foundation for the harmonisation work on key OTC derivatives data elements for meaningful aggregation on a global basis. That work includes the 2012 CPSS-IOSCO report on OTC derivatives data reporting and aggregation requirements, the 2013 CPSS-IOSCO report on Authorities’ access to trade repository data and the 2014 FSB Feasibility study on approaches to aggregate OTC derivatives data.

Following the 2014 feasibility study, the FSB asked the CPMI and IOSCO to develop global guidance on the harmonisation of data elements reported to TRs and important for the aggregation of data by authorities, including the Unique Transaction Identifier (UTI) and the Unique Product Identifier (UPI).

This consultative report is part of the Harmonisation Group’s response to that mandate. It complements the consultative report on Harmonisation of key OTC derivatives data elements (other than UTI and UPI) - first batch as well as the consultative report on Harmonisation of the Unique Transaction Identifier and two consultative reports on Harmonisation of the Unique Product Identifier. The Harmonisation Group also plans to issue consultative reports on further batches of key data elements (other than UTI and UPI) in the coming months.

The report seeks general and specific comments and suggestions from respondents by 30 November 2016, using this pdf form.
