The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC or Commission) is calling for nominations to the Subcommittee on Data Standardization (Subcommittee) under the auspices of the Technology Advisory Committee. The Subcommittee on Data Standardization was established to develop recommendations for a standardized reference data depository representing the universe of legal and financial terms utilized in describing, defining, and valuing the various derivatives and other financial instruments which are presently and in the future may be traded on and off of regulated exchanges. The Subcommittee will report to the full Technology Advisory Committee. The creation of standardized reference points and data terms is anticipated to aid in the development of universal entity, product, and/or instrument identifiers and provide greater consistency in the collection, reporting, and management of individual transactions, underlying legal documents (including master agreements and credit support agreements), and risk exposures.

Individuals seeking to be nominated to the Subcommittee on Data Standardization should possess demonstrable expertise in a related field or represent a stakeholder of interest in the issue. Prospective nominees should be open to participating in an open public-private forum.
