Committee on Derivatives (Committee 7)

Committee 7 focuses on issues relating to commodity derivatives markets.

As part of its G-20 related mandates, Committee 7 issued its final report on Principles for Oil Price Reporting Agencies (PRA Principles) in October 2012 and its implementation review of the PRA Principles in September 2014. These principles are intended to enhance the reliability of the oil price assessments that are referenced in derivative contracts subject to regulation by IOSCO members. IOSCO also published “Frequently Asked Questions” on the PRA Principles.

Another important G-20 mandate of Committee 7 was the Principles for the Regulation and Supervision of Commodity Derivatives Markets, which were published in September 2011. The objective of the Principles is to help ensure that the physical commodity derivatives markets serve their fundamental price discovery and hedging functions while operating free from manipulation and abusive trading schemes.

Committee 7 also has a G-20 related mandate to study the Impact of the PRA Principles on Physical Markets which is currently being carried out by IOSCO with the International Energy Agency, the International Energy Forum and OPEC.
