ISDA Announces Commodity Derivatives Trade Repository Selection

The International Swaps and Derivatives Association, Inc. (ISDA) announced today that the ISDA Commodities Steering Committee has chosen Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) Deriv/SERV and EFETnet to partner with the Committee on the next stage of development of the Commodity Derivatives Trade Repository.

This selection is the result of a public Request for Proposals (RFP), which was issued March 25, 2011. The RFP was issued with the intention to create a trade reporting repository that ultimately will record all Commodity OTC Derivatives trade types. The repository will meet all current and future regulations governing repositories and will provide a structure to rapidly report and provide timely access to information to applicable regulators. The ISDA Commodities Steering Committee, which consists of senior business representatives in the commodity derivatives market from both buy- and sell-side firms, issued the RFP and selected the provider.

Trade repositories improve transparency by providing global regulators with significant visibility into risk exposures by firm and by counterparty. ISDA has helped establish trade repositories for other asset classes, including OTC credit default, interest rate and equity derivatives.
