Implementation monitoring of PFMI: Fourth update to Level 1 assessment report

July 2017

The Committee on Payments and Market Infrastructures (CPMI) and the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) continue to closely monitor the implementation of the Principles for financial market infrastructures (PFMI). The PFMI are international standards for payment, clearing and settlement systems, and trade repositories. They are designed to ensure that the infrastructure supporting global financial markets is robust and well placed to withstand financial shocks.

This report provides jurisdictions' updated self-assessments of their progress towards adopting the legislation, regulations and other policies that will enable them to implement the 24 Principles for FMIs and four of the five Responsibilities for authorities included in the PFMI. It shows that progress continues to be made by the 28 participating jurisdictions since the previous update in June 2016. The next update of the Level 1 assessment will be conducted in 2018.
