The FCA has published Consultation Paper 17/31: Market infrastructure providers – 2017/18 fee rates (CP17/31). CP17/31 should be read by recognised investment exchanges, benchmark administrators and data reporting services providers. It may also be of interest to other market infrastructure providers in the B fee-block.

The FCA is completing the setting of the 2017/18 periodic fee rates for market infrastructure providers (the B Fee-block). The FCA is also setting the 2017/18 periodic fee rate for data reporting service providers (DRSP) (fee-block G25), effective from 3 January 2018.

The deadline for comments on CP17/31 is 16 October 2017.

The FCA intends to publish its feedback with final rules in its December 2017 Handbook Notice.
