SFTR next steps
REGIS-TR is a well known and recognized European Trade Repository. When SFTR regulation begins, you will be able to report your securities financing transactions via REGIS-TR’s reporting engine.
ESMA published the Final regulatory technical standards (RTS) Report on March 31st 2017, however, the actual start date of the reporting requirements depends on when the European Commission and European Parliament can approve it. The standards are expected to enter into force by Q2 2018 with reporting to go live Q3 2019 on a phased-in basis, depending on the counterparty type, continuing until 2020.
