On July 29, 2015, the International Organization of Securities Commissions published a report which sets out the findings of its review on the progress by countries in adopting legislation, regulation and policies for derivatives market intermediaries as set out in the IOSCO “International Standards for Derivative Market Intermediary Regulation.” The Standards cover the scope of regulatory reform, registration requirements, capital standards for non-prudentially regulated DMIs, conduct of business standards, business supervision standards and recordkeeping standards. The review found that most jurisdictions are in the process of implementing legal frameworks which cover the same areas as the Standards and recommends that an implementation assessment need not be undertaken before the end of 2016.
