Industry lobbies for consistency in regulatory reporting for derivatives

Industry lobbies for consistency in regulatory reporting for derivatives

Published July 13, 2015

The International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA) has developed a set of principles aimed at improving consistency in regulatory reporting standards for derivatives, with endorsement from 11 industry associations. 


Market participants have faced challenges in reporting OTC derivatives trades because of the varying reporting rules in jurisdictions with different scope and coverage of transactions implemented on different timelines.

Tom Jenkins, partner at KPMG China, said this has made complying with reporting rules difficult because market participants need to tailor their OTC derivatives reporting processes to reflect the specific regulations in force in each jurisdiction. This has been a particular concern for international banks which operate across the region, he said.

"Market participants need to carefully analyse which transactions need to be reported because there are bespoke reporting requirements for each jurisdiction," he said.
