Swap data repositories ("SDRs") and security-based swap data repositories ("SBSDRs") are types of entities that are required to register with the CFTC and SEC, respectively, under Title VII of the Dodd-Frank Act. Registered SDRs and SBSDRs collect and maintain data and information related to swap transactions and make such data and information directly and electronically available to regulators. SDRs and SBSDRs performing these functions must comply with core principles, duties, and other requirements specified (i) in the case of SDRs, in CEA Section 21 and CFTC Rules Part 49, and (ii) in the case of SBSDRs, in SEA Section 13(n) and the SEC rules thereunder.
This page is focused on the operational requirements that are imposed directly on SDRs and SBSDRs. See also the related topic page on the trade reporting of swaps and security-based swaps.
