  • If a trade is un-allocated past the reporting deadline, the Counterparty should reflect the fund manager’s LEI
  • Valuation amount must not be adjusted for CVA, DVA or similar
  • Price for commodity fixed/float swaps refers only to the fixed price of the fixed leg
  • Notional amount will allow negative values for commodity derivative products and Delta will allow values outside of -1 to 1
  • The ISO 20022 Unit of Measure four letter codes are to be used for: Price unit of measure, Quantity unit of measure, and Basket constituent unit of measure
  • Settlement location must be a two-letter country code following the ISO 3166 standards
  • Identifier of the basket’s constituents and Basket constituent identifier source are free text fields that should reflect the product characteristics as maintained by the UPI Service Provider

13 new data elements:

  • The Crypto asset underlying indicator must be a Boolean (True/False)
  • The new field Level will be used to indicate whether the report is done at trade or position level; allowed values will be: TCTN = Trade and PSTN = Position.
