Confirming adherence to FMSB Standards through Statements of Commitment

Full, Associate, and Corporate Members commit to conduct their FICC market activities in a manner consistent with the Core Principles contained in FMSB Standards, and to have internal policies, procedures and controls reasonably designed to give effect to those Core Principles where they are applicable. Members evidence this through an annual Statement of Commitment which they are required to submit to FMSB by 31 December of the following year.

The Statement of Commitment applies to all Standards published by FMSB in final form prior to 31 December of the previous year and reaffirms any previous Statements of Commitment made by the FMSB member where appropriate.

FMSB Members are provided with language for their Statement of Commitment and return this with details of where they publicise it.
