Derivatives Service Bureau Calls for Industry Input to 2019 Consultation

Share article

The Derivatives Service Bureau (DSB) has opened its 2019 consultation with a focus on getting industry feedback on operations such as data submission enhancements, services such as data flow rationalisation, technical issues including infrastructure and workflows, and legal aspects including the fee survey and user agreement forum.

The consultation is seeking responses from both direct and indirect users of the DSB, and will be carried out in two phases. The first phase will allow the DSB to understand the items that are deemed most valuable for further evaluation in the second phase. The consultation form is available here and the consultant will run until 5 pm UTC on the June 5, 2019, with feedback to be supplied to industry_consultation@anna-dsb.com

The DSB was founded by the Association of National Numbering Agencies (ANNA) to facilitate the allocation and maintenance of International Securities Identification Numbers (ISINs), Classification of Financial Instrument codes (CFIs) and Financial Instrument Short Names (FISNs), for OTC derivatives under MiFID II. It was recently designated by the Financial Stability Board as the sole service provider for Unique Product Identifiers once their code and reference data are set as international data standards by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO).

Malavika Solanki, a member of the DSB management team, says: “The growing use of the DSB for purposes other than MiFID II has allowed the DSB to work with industry and provide a golden source for OTC derivative ISINs, CFI codes and other attributes contained in the OTC ISIN record. User feedback – through the consultation, the committees and other forums – has resulted in the provision of a variety of enhancements in the past year.”
