ICMA publishes DLT regulatory directory and brief

There have been a growing number of use cases of Distributed ledger technology (DLT) in the international bond markets over the last three years. While the majority of transactions have been of experimental nature, legal and regulatory uncertainty around the treatment of DLT appears to be one of the key challenges to its broader adoption.

There is a consensus that regulation is generally designed to be technology neutral, however, regulators and legislators have adopted different approaches to provide greater clarity and accommodate the use of DLT in the financial sector.

The directory seeks to provide a non-exhaustive overview of recent DLT regulatory guidance, legislative initiatives, as well as related strategy papers and publications in selected jurisdictions across Europe, North America, and Asia-Pacific. Its aim is to provide a sense of the direction of travel, anticipating future regulatory DLT guidance and legislative change, which will pave the way for broader adoption of DLT.
