						<h1>Collateral management harmonisation </h1>
<p> Part of the Eurosystem’s mandate is to foster European financial market integration and promote a truly domestic single market in Europe. Harmonised collateral management processes are a key prerequisite for achieving this. Yet, barriers and obstacles still exist on account of fragmented legacy standards, structural constraints and complex and diverse market practices. </p>
<h2>What is the Eurosystem doing? </h2>
<p><img src="/paym/integration/collateral/shared/img/5_Guiding_Principles_horizontal.svg" alt="Harmonised collateral management processes" class="mobile-hidden"><img src="/paym/integration/collateral/shared/img/5_Guiding_Principles_mobile.svg" alt="Harmonised collateral management processes" class="mobile-only">
</p>
<p>The harmonised collateral management processes laid down in the Single Collateral Rulebook for Europe (SCoRE) will ultimately make it easier for:</p>
<ul>
  <li><strong>Market participants</strong> to move their securities and collateral safely and efficiently between EU countries, without friction or restrictions;</li>
  <li><strong>Investors</strong> to buy securities in any EU country and use them as collateral in the same or any other EU country;</li>
  <li><strong>Banks</strong> to move collateral and securities quickly to where they are needed, instead of keeping them in different locations.</li>
</ul>
<p>It will also lead to:</p>
<ul>
  <li><strong>Increased efficiency</strong>, by enabling collateral management across Europe from a single account using the same procedures;</li>
  <li><strong>Lower costs</strong>, as a single rulebook will allow market participants to implement a single set of procedures;</li>
  <li><strong>Interoperability</strong>, resulting from common messaging based on a common set of data across financial market infrastructures;</li>
  <li><strong>Lower risk</strong> in managing securities and collateral as a result of the standardisation of processes;</li>
  <li><strong>A level playing field</strong> for all market participants across Europe;</li>
  <li><strong>Increased reach</strong> beyond domestic markets. </li>
</ul>
<h2>What harmonisation standards have already been agreed?</h2>
<div class="ecb-box highlight">
  <h3>Triparty standards for Europe – to be implemented by November 2022</h3>
  <p>Common processes for interaction between all major European triparty service providers and
    their participants, including the Eurosystem, using ISO 20022 messaging. </p>
</div>
<div class="ecb-box highlight">
  <h3>Billing processes standards for Europe – staggered implementation from November 2022 </h3>
  <p> A single set of rules for the transmission of billing information by post-trade service providers  
    related to custody and collateral management, including the alignment of 
    billing frequency and dates and using ISO 20022 messaging. </p>
</div>
<div class="ecb-box highlight">
  <h3>Corporate actions standards for Europe – staggered implementation from November 2022 </h3>
  <p>A first set of harmonised business processes and workflows for debt instruments has been
    endorsed, foreseeing the use of ISO 20022 messaging. Work on other instruments, such as
    equities, is ongoing. </p>
</div>
<h2>What still needs to be harmonised?</h2>
<p>In December 2017, the Advisory Group on Market Infrastructures for Securities and Collateral (AMI-SeCo) identified ten areas where further harmonisation was needed. Harmonisation standards have already been agreed in three of these areas (see above). Work to produce harmonised standards in the following areas is ongoing:</p>
<ul>
  <li>Harmonisation of <strong>tax processes</strong> in the context of  collateral management (taking into account the identification of parties in  collateralised transactions).</li>
  <li>Harmonisation of  workflows for <strong>bilateral collateral  management</strong> (covering non-cleared OTC derivatives and securities financing).  Interoperability and leverage of existing infrastructures and market platforms.</li>
  <li>Interoperability  and leverage of existing infrastructures and market platforms for <strong>margin processes</strong>.</li>
  <li>Minimum  requirements for end-of-day <strong>cut-off  times</strong> to avoid possible different value dates in cross-infrastructure  transactions in different markets, which may create frictions for market  participants active in different markets. </li>
  <li>Harmonisation of <strong>data exchanges</strong> to ensure that  information/data is available where necessary. Market practices needed for use  of data. </li>
  <li>Minimum  requirements for <strong>sourcing/movement of  collateral</strong> across Europe.</li>
  <li>Market  practices for the handling of <strong>non-euro-denominated  collateral</strong> (including related corporate action processes).</li>
</ul>

<h2>How are we moving towards harmonisation?</h2>
<p>A dedicated taskforce under the AMI-SeCo brings market participants together to define harmonised rules for managing collateral in Europe. The taskforce puts forward and endorses harmonisation standards as follows: </p>
<ul>
<li>For each harmonisation activity, the harmonisation needs are <strong>analysed</strong> in depth (taking into account existing industry standards and market practices) and <strong>harmonisation proposals</strong> are prepared. </li>
<li>For each harmonisation proposal, a <strong>harmonisation standard</strong> is defined, accompanied by a detailed <strong>rulebook</strong>.</li> 
<li>The standards and the accompanying rulebook are submitted to the <strong>AMI-SeCo</strong> for approval.</li>
</ul>
