DSB Webinar: Current Status, Future Plans
12 March 2018 – The current status and future developments of the Derivatives Service Bureau will be the topic of a webinar presented at 3pm UTC on 22 March. The webinar is the initial activity of the Technology Advisory Committee process, which is planned to begin committee meetings in Q2.
“The DSB, in its first iteration, was originally designed to meet the OTC derivatives reference data reporting requirements of the European Union’s MiFID II regulation,” said Sassan Danesh, Management Team, DSB. “However, the platform is increasingly being utilised to meet a broader range of regulatory and industry requirements. This webinar is also the introduction to a concerted effort to obtain as much industry guidance as possible on service levels and appropriate technologies to help us prioritize the next steps.”
Topics to be covered in the webinar include the technical performance of the DSB, and questions to participants regarding satisfaction with current service-level parameters. Looking to the future, the webinar will discuss possible enhancements to the service levels to meet industry’s broader needs.
Feedback and suggestions from participants in the webinar will be discussed. Further information-gathering exercises are planned for the coming months to support the Technology Advisory Committee in shaping the DSB’s technology strategy.

About The Derivatives Service Bureau (DSB) Ltd
Headquartered in London, the DSB is a legal subsidiary of ANNA. Its core purpose is to serve as a global numbering agency, providing unique identification of OTC derivatives to serve the needs of market participants and regulators through allocation of the International Securities Identification Number (ISIN), as well as the Classification of Financial Instruments (CFI) and Financial Instrument Short Name (FISN), as OTC products are created. The ISIN, CFI and FISN are globally recognized and adopted ISO standards for identifying and classifying financial instruments.
More detailed information on the DSB and its development path can be found at www.anna-dsb.com.
Established in 1992 by 22 founding numbering agencies, ANNA is the membership organization of national numbering agencies, which are operated by depositories, exchanges, government agencies, nationally central data vendors and other financial infrastructure organizations. ANNA also serves as the registration authority for the ISIN and FISN standards, under appointment by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
Under ANNA’s stewardship, the role of the ISIN in enabling global financial communications has been established worldwide. ISINs are issued today more than 200 jurisdictions worldwide. In addition, ANNA is developing the Derivatives Service Bureau (DSB), a fully automated global numbering agency to meet the operational and regulatory requirements of the over-the-counter derivatives markets. The number of national numbering agencies and nations working to establish national numbering agencies continues to grow each year, now surpassing 120 jurisdictions globally.
