On May 4, the Ontario Securities Commission released a statement regarding a meeting held in Toronto earlier this month and attended by various international regulatory agencies regarding the regulation of OTC derivatives. Various issues surrounding implementation were discussed, including transparency, margin for uncleared derivatives, coordination of clearing mandates, access to data in trade repositories, and cross border clearing house crisis management. Ultimately, the meeting's purpose was to provide a forum for discussion among the regulators as they work toward international harmonization of the regulatory requirements.

In addition to the OSC and Quebec's Autorité des marchés financiers, the meeting included representatives from the Australian Securities and Investments Commission, Brazil's Comissão de Valores Mobiliários, the European Commission and European Securities and Markets Authority, Hong Kong's Securities and Futures Commission, Japan's Financial Services Agency, the Monetary Authority of Singapore, the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority, and the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission and Securities and Exchange Commission.
