    • GEN 2.2.13 Guidance

      1. Maintaining a Trade RepositoryG is not a separately licensed Financial ServiceG , but may be carried on by an Authorised PersonG which has on its LicenceG an endorsement permitting it to do so. An Authorised PersonG maintaining a Trade RepositoryG is subject to some specific requirements relating to that activity, which are set out in App 5.
      2. The functions of a Trade RepositoryG promote increased transparency and integrity of information, particularly for centrally clearing over-the-counter derivatives. Currently there are no transaction reporting requirements in the DIFCG which require reporting to Trade RepositoriesG .
      3. An Authorised PersonG does not carry on the activities of a Trade RepositoryG to the extent that it maintains records of transactions pursuant to the record keeping requirements applicable to that firm (such as those relating to transactions carried out on behalf of its ClientsG by an Authorised FirmG , or transactions carried out on the facilities of an Authorised Market InstitutionG ).
