DSB Opens Second and Final Fee Model Consultation

02.05.2017

London, UK – The Derivatives Service Bureau today opened its second industry consultation on the proposed final fee model of user payments and other topics related to the cost-recovery financial basis of the DSB. The fee model will go into effect on 2 October 2017 when the DSB completes its start-up phase and becomes operational.

Topics of this second fee model consultation include the following:

  • Utilization of annual excess revenue beyond operating costs
  • Free access to the archive of ISINs and associated reference data for OTC derivatives
  • Further simplification of the fee model

In addition, this consultation will present further details of the projected operating cost bases – in both the start-up and initial operational phases – from which the annual user fee distribution is calculated.

The consultation paper is available now for download at the DSB Consultation – Fee Model 2 page on the website of the Association for National Numbering Agencies.

The DSB will host a webinar on the proposed final fee model on 15 May 2017 at 1400 BST.  Full details can be obtained by emailing secretariat@anna-dsb.com.

Responses to the second fee model consultation may be sent to the secretariat@ANNA-DSB.com until the consultation closes on 31 May 2017.  Responses will be published with attribution on the consultation page of the ANNA website, unless anonymity is requested.

After consideration of the industry responses, the DSB will publish a final report on 28 June 2017.
