TORONTO, Sept. 23, 2014 /CNW/ - The Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) today published three orders pursuant to subsection 21.2.2(1) of the Securities Act (Ontario), designating the Chicago Mercantile Exchange Inc., DTCC Data Repository (U.S.) LLC and Ice Trade Vault, LLC as trade repositories in Ontario. The OSC has coordinated with the Autorité des marchés financiers and the Manitoba Securities Commission in finalizing the designations.
Clearing agencies and dealers are required under Ontario securities laws to report certain OTC derivatives transactions to a designated trade repository by October 31, 2014, and all other OTC derivatives market participants are required to report by June 30, 2015.
As the OSC and market participants prepare for the reporting obligation deadline, the OSC will continue its dialogue with stakeholders, as industry engagement is paramount to a successful transition to the new reporting regime.
The Notice of Commission Orders can be found on the OSC's website at www.osc.gov.on.ca.
The OSC is meeting its G20 commitments and reinforcing Canada's financial stability framework through the implementation of Over-the-Counter derivatives reforms. The OSC is developing internationally and Canadian harmonized legislative and regulatory proposals to strengthen oversight of Ontario's OTC derivatives market.
