This is a challenging time for the derivatives industry in the Regulatory Reporting space as we are commencing delivery and implementation of new Swap Data Reporting rules developed by the U.S. Commodity Trading Futures Commission (CFTC) as well as EMIR Refit and APAC jurisdictions. ISDA is supporting member firms with their compliance of these rules, including through delivery of a digital solution based on ISDA's Common Domain Model. ISDA believes Digital Regulatory Reporting (DRR) will demonstrate how regulation can be more efficiently and consistently implemented going forward.

This position presents an opportunity to actively participate in this groundbreaking initiative as part of the ISDA Data and Reporting team, setting a new standard for trade reporting compliance.

The DRR will reflect the outcome of the industry's interpretation of regulatory reporting rules in an unambiguous way through a model based on the ISDA CDM.

Our expectation is that firms will leverage the CDM-DRR reaping rewards with significant compliance, reporting and implementation project savings. More broadly, the role will facilitate the analysis and the effective implementation of the new regulatory reporting requirements across jurisdictions.

The DRR has a priority first phase delivery in December 2022 in line with the CFTC Swap Data Reporting rules compliance date.

Technical modelling of the CFTC rules for DRR is now nearing
