JFSA Reporting Solution
Derivatives trade reporting was first introduced in Japan in 2012. Since then, reporting requirements for OTC derivatives has been mandated for a number of financial institutions, including type-one FIBO, registered banks, insurance companies and certain financial institutions designed under the OTC derivatives ordinance 21. Transactions are currently mandated to be reported on a weekly basis.
In 2015, CPMI-ISOCO published a consultation paper and provided guidance in terms of how reporting of OTC derivatives should be standardized. From there, we have witnessed several G20 regulators having published their own version of the consultation papers adapted for their local market. More recently, the JFSA is releasing an updated version of its reporting regulation. Expanding to 139 data element fields, the update is currently scheduled to go live in April 2024.
The new version aims to harmonize JFSA reporting to global reporting standards and will be challenging to the industry as changes will occur on multiple fronts. Example of the changes expected include reporting frequency, required data points, reporting to a trade repository instead of directly to JFSA and many more.
