The Derivatives Service Bureau (DSB) has opened a consultation on the legal terms and conditions, and client support model, expected to apply to users of the Unique Product Identifier (UPI) Service, due to launch next year. The consultation sets out a range of proposals aimed to align with industry feedback for the DSB to support the UPI Service within the existing DSB legal framework that is used for the OTC ISIN Service.Proposals include the use of a single overarching legal agreement with fee-paying users able to subscribe to OTC ISIN and/or UPI Services, introduction of a client onboarding and support platform, use of the Legal Entity Identifier for user onboarding verification, use of pre-payment for lower value user fees, fee model variables to be used for annual fee determination, the approach to termination, suspension and renewals, dispute resolution mechanism, and the transfer of user data in the case of a contingency scenario.
Emma Kalliomaki, managing director of ANNA and the DSB, comments: “Good governance principles are at the core of the UPI to ensure for a better service for the market. The DSB would like to encourage all interested parties to review the proposals of the UPI Legal Terms and Conditions Consultation and provide feedback.”
The deadline for industry feedback on the consultation is Wednesday, 19 January 2022.
