On July 24, 2015, the Financial Stability Board published its ninth report on the implementation of OTC derivatives reforms. The report notes that implementation of the reforms continues to progress but that challenges do still exist. Issues that are being addressed at international level include harmonization of transaction reporting, a framework for uniform trade and product identifiers, coordination on CCP resilience and cross-border regulatory issues. The FSB will continue to monitor and report on implementation of the reforms including the effects thereof.
