Growing activity of KDPW and its participants in international markets requires on-going alignment of KDPW systems with the global standards and market practice applicable to the exchange of settlement messages. In the National Market Practice Group (NMPG PL), KDPW in co-operation with representatives of market participants develops a range of settlement practices to apply in the Polish market. The practices are then gradually implemented in kdpw_stream. Standardisation efforts are on-going due to continuous market development and modifications of international standards.
The work to date has implemented among others the following functionalities:
- provision of the error code of instruction matching;
- modification of the instruction expiry rules;
- improvements of matching with settlement value tolerance including new matching mode ‘0’;
- final rejection of incorrect settlement instructions;
- introduction of ISO codes designating error reasons of settlement instructions;
- instruction status depending on the actual settlement date;
- modifications of the designation of suspended instruction status;
- modifications to the settlement instruction matching rules at client level enabling automation of matching on KDPW participant side (STP);
- clarification of the rules of application of market codes in settlement instructions;
- introduction of the designation of the volume of financial instruments for debt instruments as face amount instead of quantity in units;
- modifications to the processing of repo and sell/buy-back transactions: integration of two existing models, alignment with the CSDR requirements and introduction of partial settlement;
- new simplified model of linking settlement instructions;
- new feature allowing to transfer settlement instructions between real-time settlement system (RTGS) and multibatch.
Implementation of ISO15022/20022 settlement operation codes is scheduled for September 2019. Testing will start in April 2019. The detailed materials have been published in June 2018:
Identifiers of settlement transaction types under ISO 15022/20022 in kdpw_stream: specification of business requirements
Identifiers of settlement transaction types under ISO 15022/20022 in kdpw_stream: mapping table
How to use MyStandards?
