EU Settlement Discipline Standards published

EU Settlement Discipline Standards published

On 13 September 2019, the Final Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) on Settlement Discipline have been published in the Official Journal of the European Union. The standards are mandated by the CSD Regulation and constitute part of a binding package providing the regulatory framework for all Central Securities Depositories of the European Economic Area.

The standards have been released by the European Commission on May 25 and published following the absence of any objection from the Council and the Parliament.

The date of publication in the Official Journal is particularly important for the calculation of the date of applicability of the standards. They will enter in force on 14 September 2020, after a phase-in period of 24 months.

Please see the link to the full Regulatory Technical Standards as published in the Journal.

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.
