JFSA Reporting 

What is JFSA Reporting?

The rewrite of the Japan Financial Services Agency (JFSA) reporting regulation has officially gone into effect as of April 1, 2024. This involves significant changes in how firms report derivatives and is expected to broaden the scope of reporting entities. Reporting firms will be mandated to report to an approved trade repository for the first time. Additionally, the implementation of ISO 20022 messaging and the expansion of reporting fields to 139 are integral components to this regulatory update.

Who is impacted by the regulation?

  • Financial Instruments Clearing Organizations
  • Foreign Financial Instruments Clearing Organizations
  • Financial Instruments Business Operators
  • Registered Financial Institutions

Which trades need to be reported?

The mandatory obligation requires OTC derivatives for all asset classes to be reported to an approved trade repository:

  • Commodities (other than electricity derivatives)
  • Credit
  • Equities
  • Foreign Exchange
  • Interest Rates

When is the reporting deadline?

The next working day after trade execution (T+1).
