The Final Report on the annual consultation, related to the 2023 service provision, was published on 30 June 2022. The Final Report presents a final snapshot of changes to be taken forward in 2023 and should be read in conjunction with the Industry Consultation Questions document.

Consultation Paper

This consultation opened on 29th April 2022 and closed on 30th May 2022.

The consultation paper sought to obtain industry views on a broad range of topics arising from user feedback during the prior 12-month period and to determine appetite for enhancing the DSB’s services within the communal cost recovery ring-fence. The document sought to present information for market participants’ review and feedback, with the consultation focusing on a range of questions relating to transformation work following the detailed technical review of the DSB’s cloud infrastructure in 2021, enterprise-wide risk monitoring tools and enhancements to the DSB Graphical User Interface. Market participants’ views on continuing to offer Virtual Private Network connectivity as part of the cost recovery service and on the roll-out of the Client Onboarding and Support Platform (COSP) to OTC ISIN Users were also requested.

A webinar to address consultation related queries took place on Wednesday 11th May 2022. The webinar set out the key themes in the DSB Consultation Paper of 2022. The purpose of the webinar was to provide industry with an opportunity to submit any questions following publication of the consultation paper. The accompanying slide deck is designed to work in conjunction with the consultation document. Access the recording using the buttons on the right-hand side.
