Second Consultation

The first consultation closed on the 5th June 2019, and sought responses on a series of questions regarding the DSB’s service and functionality from both direct and indirect users of the DSB. A total of 15 responses were received representing 19 institutions and included responses from 6 trade associations which is double the number from the previous consultation.

Of the 25 user driven questions put forward to industry, 5 were dismissed as not of interest to broader industry participants, and 10 are proposed to be taken forward by the DSB on a “business as usual” basis, with no impact on current costs. Included in those to be taken forward on a business as usual basis are the grouping of underlying data sources used by the DSB to be expanded, as well as highlighting specific aspects that they wish to see the DSB focus on as part of its ongoing data review activity.

A further 10 questions from the first consultation require further industry feedback and investigation and are included in the second consultation which will run until the 29th July 2019. The second consultation paper can be accessed via the button on the right.

A webinar took place on Thursday 11th July 2019 at 1pm UTC (2pm BST (London), 1pm CEST, 9am EST) to provide industry with an opportunity to submit any questions following publication of the second consultation paper. The slide deck  and a recording of the webinar are available - please use the buttons on the right.
