DSB Responds to Industry Feedback with Plans for a Technology Roadmap for OTC Derivative Identifiers

Blog entry

The Derivatives Service Bureau (DSB) is planning to develop a strategic technology roadmap for OTC derivative identifiers. The roadmap is a response to feedback from the DSB’s latest industry consultation that has also led to the creation of a Strategy Subcommittee of the DSB Technology Advisory Committee (TAC) that will take forward the technology-related work of the original ISO standards working group SG2.

The subcommittee will follow an open and inclusive process with a diverse stakeholder base, and will take into consideration other relevant regulatory and industry initiatives that the DSB should aim to be consistent with.

Marc Honegger, TAC sponsor and board member of the DSB, says: “Having successfully enabled OTC derivative users to meet their MiFID II reporting requirements in 2018, we now look forward to working with industry in 2019 to develop the DSB strategic technology roadmap.”

Membership of the TAC Subcommittee will be announced on October 11, 2018, with the first meeting due to be held on November 8, 2018. The meeting agenda, full list of TAC Strategy Subcommittee participants, and records of meetings will be available on the DSB website.
