On 29 July 2021, the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) released an update to Validation Rules and XML Schemas for the Securities Financing Transaction Regulation (SFTR), following a review of the proposed changes by the ISO Evaluation Group in June. The Validation Rules are currently due to apply from 31 January 2022.
ISLA will review these changes as part of the SFTR working group and consider their implications. If you would like to be part of ISLA’s SFTR working group or for more information, please click here or visit our Working Groups & Minutes section.
