We are consulting on the setting of our 2017/18 periodic fee rates for market infrastructure providers.
Each year, our Business Plan explains how we will use our total annual funding requirement to undertake work on our key priorities and ongoing activities. That work program enables us to achieve our overall objective of ensuring that markets work well, and our three supporting objectives of protecting the consumer, promoting competition and enhancing the integrity of markets.
We published our 2017/18 Business Plan and main fee rates consultation paper (CP17/12) in April 2017 and set out our feedback on responses and final fee rate rules in a policy statement (PS17/15) in July 2017. This paper completes our annual consultation in the case of recognised investment exchanges, and benchmark administrators (part of the B fee-block).
We are also setting the 2017/18 periodic fee rate for for data reporting service providers (fee-block G25), effective from 3 January 2018 when the data reporting services regulations come fully into effect in the UK.
This consultation paper will affect:
It may also be of interest to other market infrastructure providers in the B fee-block.
