Can I delegate Trade Reporting?

October 12, 2017

Counterparties which are subject to reporting obligations may delegate reporting, however it must be ensured that there is no reporting duplication. When counterparties delegate reporting, they retain the responsibility for the accuracy and timely submission of the reports.

Both counterparties to a trade must report each trade unless by prior arrangement, one party can report on behalf of both counterparties.

Either counterparty to the trade may delegate reporting to a third party.

Where one counterparty reports on behalf of another counterparty, or a third party reports a contract on behalf of one or both counterparties, the details reported shall include the full set of details that would have been reported had the contracts been reported by each counterparty separately.
