The Post-Trading Standing Committee (PTSC)
It is composed of representatives of the 28 EU national authorities (where there is more than one national authority in a Member State those authorities will agree which of their heads will represent them), with one observer from the European Commission, from Norway, Iceland and Lichtenstein. It undertakes ESMA’s work relating to clearing and settlement of transactions in financial instruments, including the roles of financial market infrastructures and any other entities providing post-trading services.
In particular, the PTSC is responsible for elaborating advice to the European Commission, and technical standards and guidelines and recommendations relating to the Regulation on OTC Derivatives, Central Counterparties and Trade Repositories. The PTSC is also responsible for developing ESMA’s policy on the regulation of central securities depositories (CSDs) and on the regulatory and supervisory implications of the TARGET2-Securities project.
Finally, the PTSC fosters supervisory convergence among the national authorities in its area of competence.
Any correspondence regarding the work of PTSC should be sent to post-trading[at]esma.europa.eu.
