The Ontario Securities Commission Amends Schedule for Public Disclosure of Transaction-Level Derivatives Data
Feb 12 15
The Ontario Securities Commission announced further amendments to OSC Rule 91-507 Trade Repositories and Derivatives Data Reporting. The amendments delay the effective date for transaction-level data reporting by designated trade repositories until July 29, 2016 and also allow certain market participants to report under the European Union (EU) derivatives trade reporting rules. Delaying transaction-level public reporting allows OSC Staff further time to study current over-the-counter derivatives market data and develop appropriate publication delay mechanisms. Derivatives trade reporting is a recent development in Ontario, with the first phase having come into effect on October 31, 2014 for clearing agencies and dealers. The amendment to include the EU derivatives reporting rules is part of an ongoing effort to recognize as equivalent the rules of other jurisdictions where substituted compliance is appropriate. The amendments to the Rule are scheduled to come into effect on April 30, 2015.
