On 15 November 2012, the Singaporean Parliament passed the Securities and Futures (Amendment) Act 2012 (SFaA). The SFaA, among other things, amends the Singapore Securities and Futures Act 2001 to give effect to policy proposals relating to OTC derivatives, including:

  • the introduction of a new regulatory regime for trade repositories;
  • extending the regulatory regime for clearing facilities to OTC derivatives; and
  • mandating reporting and clearing of certain OTC derivatives transactions.

On 10 January 2013, the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) issued a consultation paper on amendments relating to new Part IIA and Part III of the Securities and Futures Act 2001, on trade repositories and clearing facilities. AIMA submitted a response.
