ECSDA consults on the draft Settlement Fail Penalties Framework

ECSDA consults on the draft Settlement Fail Penalties Framework

 

9 July 2018

Today, ECSDA makes available the draft version of its future ECSDA Settlement Fail Penalties Framework (the Framework). The document aims at creating a harmonised and coherent set of rules and considerations for creation and operation of the Settlement Discipline Cash Penalties mechanisms by all European CSDs subject to the CSD Regulation (Regulation (EU) 909/2014) or equivalent provisions. It intends to provide a clear, safe and efficient Framework for settlement penalties mechanisms of the CSDs that have joined and that have not yet joined T2S platform.
The draft version of the Framework is based on numerous assumptions which need to be confirmed by the authorities and other relevant stakeholders. It is intended to evolve pursuant to clarification of assumptions, dialogue with relevant stakeholders and further ECSDA work.
Preliminary or partial views will be appreciated as soon as possible.

The open consultation on the early draft framework is running until 17 August at the latest.
Please send us your views, comments and proposals to info@ecsda.eu.

We thank you in advance for your attention and possible contribution to improving the ECSDA Settlement Fail Penalties Framework further.

Please read the full document.

A dense network of CSD links

A dense network of CSD links

26 Jan 2015 – A “CSD link” is an arrangement allowing a central securities depository to give its clients access to securities maintained in another CSD, without requiring its clients to be direct participants in the other CSD. Links are thus an important means to facilitate cross-border securities transactions and they contribute to market integration. Based on data collected in the second half of 2014, ECSDA has produced an overview of CSD links which shows that a dense network of links has developed over the past years.
