ICMA publishes Master Regulatory Reporting Agreement
19 December 2019 ICMA has jointly published the Master Regulatory Reporting Agreement (MRRA), in association with AFME, FIA, ISDA and ISLA.

The MRRA provides users with a template agreement for documenting regulatory reporting arrangements in relation to derivatives and securities financing transactions entered into under industry standard documentation, such as the Global Master Repurchase Agreement (GMRA).

EMIR (as amended by EMIR Refit) and SFTR impose delegated and mandatory reporting obligations on parties entering into derivative and SFT contracts, respectively. The MRRA has been structured on a modular basis, featuring various schedules, a Derivatives Annex (in relation to EMIR) and a Securities Financing Transactions Annex (in relation to SFTR). Parties can assemble an agreement which is appropriate for their trading relationships and reflects their regulatory obligations. An explanatory memorandum* has been published alongside the agreement.

ICMA has been at the forefront of efforts to understand the operational impact of the SFTR and is working on detailed best practice recommendations for SFTR reporting which will be published in early 2020, following the release of ESMA’s final Guidelines. More information is available on ICMA's website.
