About the DSB Product Committee
DSB Product Committee members will participate for a two-year term. Their activities include product governance and direct involvement in the creation and maintenance of correct data specifications for OTC derivative ISINs and related descriptive taxonomies, including addressing emerging new products. More information on the DSB Product Committee framework can be found here on the ANNA website.

About the ANNA Derivatives Service Bureau
The DSB is being developed to serve the needs of the OTC derivatives market participants and regulators for unique identification of these financial products through allocation of the International Securities Identification Number (ISIN). The ISIN is a globally recognized and adopted ISO standard for identifying financial instruments. The development timeline is keyed to industry implementation before the in-force date of MiFID 2 in January 2018.

As mentioned, the DSB Product Committee will be responsible for the product stewardship.  It will operate alongside the DSB Board which will focus on delivering the technology, finalizing the overall structure and running the numbering agency on a cost-recovery basis.

More detailed information on the DSB can be found in recent announcements at the ANNA website.
