In the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, financial authorities have enforced more stringent regulations on derivatives trading. One of the measures adopted by most regulators is the obligation to report derivative transactions and/or positions, whether OTC or exchange traded, to a central trade repository (CTR) or swap data repository (SWDR).

We detail hereafter the datamodel of how trades have to be recorded in the juridictions most relevant for Commodities trading and map those with our generic model.
