ISLA publishes final guidelines for SFTR reporting under Articles 4 and 12

These Guidelines are based on Article 16(1) of ESMA’s Regulation. These guidelines aim to clarify a number of provisions of SFTR and to provide practical guidance on the implementation of some of those provisions. The Guidelines will contribute to the reduction of costs along the complete reporting chain – the counterparties that report the data, the TRs which put in place the procedures to verify the completeness and correctness of data, and the authorities, defined in Article 12(2) SFTR, which use the data to supervise risks to financial stability. The guidelines provide clarity as to the following aspects:

a. the reporting start date when it falls on a non-working day.
b. the number of reportable SFTs;
c. the population of reporting fields for different types of SFTs;
d. the approach used to link SFT collateral with SFT loans;
e. the population of reporting fields for margin data;
f. the population of reporting fields for reuse, reinvestment and funding sources data;
g. the generation of feedback by TRs and its subsequent management by counterparties, namely in the case of (i) rejection of reported data and (ii) reconciliation breaks; and
h. the provision of access to data to authorities by TRs.
