On 5 August 2014, the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) launched a public information repository for central clearing requirements for OTC derivatives.

An accompanying press release explains that the repository provides regulators and market participants with consolidated information on the clearing requirements of different jurisdictions. By providing this information, IOSCO seeks to assist authorities in their rule making and help participants comply with the relevant regulations in the OTC derivatives market. The repository sets out central clearing requirements on a product-by-product level and any exemptions from them. The information will be updated quarterly.
