Joint Industry Fora of the Regulatory Oversight Committee and Derivatives Service Bureau

On 1 October 2020, the Regulatory Oversight Committee (ROC) became the International Governance Body for the Unique Product Identifier (UPI). From 2022 UPIs will be assigned and maintained by the Derivatives Service Bureau (DSB).

The ROC and DSB will hold three industry fora in 2021 to increase awareness of the UPI service amongst market participants ahead of the DSB's launch of their UPI service in 2022. The industry fora aim to provide firms with sufficient time to consider the UPI service and feed UPI implementation resourcing and/or technology needs into their budgetary cycles for 2022.

Register now for one or all of the fora to better understand the main features of the UPI service, including the types of services offered and the implementation timeline.

The third forum will be held in the fourth quarter of 2021. Please express your interest in attending this forum via email at More information will be provided in due course.

Participants are invited to send questions to the ROC Secretariat (at and include 'ROC-DSB Forum' in the subject line) so they can be addressed during the fora. Participants will also have the opportunity to submit questions during the fora using the Webex chat function.
