On November 30, 2015, the Committee on Payments and Market Infrastructures and International Organization of Securities Commissions published a report on the implementation of the Principles for Financial Market Infrastructures. The Principles are the international standards for payment, clearing and settlement systems as well as trade repositories aiming to ensure that the infrastructure supporting global financial markets is resilient enough to endure financial shock. The Principles consist of five general responsibilities for the relevant national regulators for FMIs: (i) regulation, supervision and oversight of FMIs; (ii) regulatory, supervisory and oversight powers and resources; (iii) disclosure of policies relating to FMIs; (iv) application of the Principles for FMIs; and (v) cooperation with other regulators. The report covers the implementation of the Principles in 28 participating jurisdictions and states that most jurisdictions have achieved a high level of observance of the responsibilities: 16 jurisdictions fully observed all responsibilities for all FMI types and two jurisdictions either fully or broadly observed each of the five responsibilities for all FMI types. Annex 3 of the report sets out the findings for each jurisdiction.
