|FpML Repos and Stock Loans Working Group Call|
The Repos and Stock Loans Working Group will extend the product coverage of the FpML Standard to address contractual agreements to repurchase or lend/borrow securities. These are commonly called "repos" and "stock borrow" agreements.
(view the Repo Working Group charter for more information).
|FpML Reporting/Regulatory Reporting Working Group|
|The Reporting/Regulatory Reporting Working Group will extend the current FpML standard to define data elements to be used for reporting OTC derivative positions between market participants and to regulators. Focus on addressing areas that create the greatest cost, effort, and risk within and between participants’ firms. The reporting should support portfolio reconciliation, e.g. for collateral review, and regulatory reporting, including the industry-wide portfolio repository, industry wide collateral management approach, and regulatory and public reporting objectives mentioned in the OTC derivative industry commitments to the Fed.
Focus areas for 2011 will include developing simplified “flat” reports that correspond to and support industry initiatives such as the ISDA collateral committee portfolio reconciliation reports, and regulatory mandates. The group will work on tools and specifications for translating between the flat and nested FpML representations, and between flat FpML and CSV representations, to provide a variety of options for reporting on derivatives information.
The group is particularly interested in attracting people who have business knowledge of the data fields required for population reporting, portfolio reconciliation, and regulatory reporting. Technical knowledge of XML and FpML is not essential.
|FpML IM-Custodian Working Group Call|
|Within the Business Process Working Group, the IM-Custodian Working Group will look specifically at the currently defined contract notification business process and related messages; revisions needed based on the implementation experiences so far, and a further expansion of the business processes to be defined in FpML specific to Investment Managers and Custodians.|

|FpML Modeling Task Force Call for Participation|
|The FpML Modeling Task Force will look at the different areas where product modeling has not been consistent across the asset classes and will propose whether or not to change these. In addition, the task force will work on product architecture and guidelines for product modeling that will assist current and new working groups in the decisions they take when modeling the products.|
|FpML Commodities Working Group Call for Participation|
The fundamental mission of the Commodities Working Group is to Develop FpML schemas and examples, coding schemes, and supporting documentation for commodity products that are commonly traded as OTC derivatives to support reporting and clearing.
(View the Commodities Working Group charter for more information).
|FpML Collateral Working Group Call for Participation|
|The FpML Collateral Working Group will extend the FpML standard with a definition of the standard messages to support the Collateral business processes, building on the work done by the ISDA Collateral Committee http://www.isda.org/c_and_a/pdf/Electronic-Messaging.pdf, which described the business processes to support:
- Margin Call

- Define messages to support new business process areas as requested by its members. Currently this is anticipated to include at least credit limit warning (e.g. for trading or clearing) and option exercise processes.
- Maintain existing “confirmation view” business processes as required by user feedback. Some areas where work may be required include new or recently changed processes such as clearing and allocation.
- Working with the FpML Architecture working group, maintain the FpML messaging framework.

An online demonstration of an off-the-shelf tool set to simplify mappings to/from FpML and generate Java transformation components on the fly
Date: Wednesday September 20th at 9:00 AM EST - 2:00 PM GMT
Summary: Mapping between FpML versions and all the other possible data sources and targets can be a complex, time consuming and laborious task often undertaken without the benefit of a tool set. The value gained can be substantial in the form of productivity improvements, re-use, traceability, timely and accurate documentation. See how a COTS tool set which has been specifically enhanced to handle highly complex xml schemas and can map even the most complex business logic can be used on a common FpML related mapping requirement. The online demonstration will show a mapping being written, tested and generated using Transformation Manager by ETL Solutions followed by a short Q&A session.

|FpML Standard Credit Support Annex Working Group||The mandate of the Standard CSA Working Group (the “Working Group”) will be two-fold:
Develop, as part of the FpML standard, an electronic data representation for the SCSA. As an input to this work, the SCSA Working Group intends to make available a legal representation of the SCSA in the course of January 2011. A draft version of this legal document is already available.
Actively participate, jointly with ISDA and SCSA Working Group members, to the definition of a framework to support an electronically executable platform for this SCSA agreement.
|Commodity Reporting Working Group||The working group will extend the current FpML standard to define reports covering the CFTC’s 17 CFR Part 20 regulations,
which require reporting of positions in a number of covered commodities resulting from OTC swaps and options trading activity.
|FpML - FIX Collaboration Working Group|
|The FpML-FIX Collaboration Working Group will focus on technical interoperability of FpML with the FIX messages for the trading of OTC derivatives with an initial focus on standardized Interest Rate Swaps (IRS) and standardized Credit Default Swaps (CDS).
The group seeks individuals having skills in at least some of the following areas:
o Understanding of FIX architecture and semantics
o Understanding of FpML architecture and semantics
o Understanding of the products and workflows in scope
