MAS (Singapore) Reporting Regulation

What is Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) Reporting?

The Monetary Authority of Singapore’s requirement for certain firms to report details of their derivatives transactions to a trade repository.

Who is impacted by the regulation?

The following persons and entities are subject to reporting obligations:

  • any bank in Singapore licensed under the Banking Act

  • any insurer licensed under the Insurance Act
  • any holder of a capital markets services licence (CMSL)
  • any significant derivatives holder (SDH) as set out in regulation 6 of the SF(RDC)R

The reporting obligation is double-sided – i.e. if either counterparty to a trade that is in scope has a reporting obligation, they must report the transaction. However, there are exemptions from reporting if certain criteria are met.

  • credit derivatives contracts
