The FCA has published a new webpage concerning the MDP entity portal.
The Market Data Processor (MDP) system will receive MiFID II market data from the UK financial industry and also market data, where applicable, from non-UK EEA financial market participants. The MDP system will interface to ESMA’s new financial instrument reference data system, including transparency calculations and double volume cap, and existing transaction reporting exchange mechanism.
The web page contains a registration form for those wishing to have an MDP Administrator User account.
An MDP transaction report data extract service user guide is available on request to firms with transaction reporting obligations, Approved Reporting Mechanisms and trading venues (who submit transaction reports directly to the MDP system).
