In July 2015, JSDA, TSE (Tokyo Stock Exchange) and JSCC (Japan Securities Clearing Corporation) set up the "Working Group on Shortening Stock Settlement Cycle (WG)" as its secretariat to conduct discussion amongst market participants and related parties for realization of shortening stock settlement cycle in Japan (change of settlement cycle to T+2).
On December 29, the WG published “Interim Report of the Working Group on Shortening Stock Settlement Cycle”, which included results of the discussions at the WG to that date and the target schedule for the change of settlement cycle to T+2.
After its publication of the interim report, the WG continued to work on the studies of the tasks raised in the interim report as remaining tasks for study, and published the study results at WG to date as the final report on June 30.
Toward the move to the T+2 stock settlement cycle, which is expected to be implemented as early as possible in 2019, the JSDA published the point to note concerning settlement failure for stocks on September 29, 2017. Reflecting on the discussion at the WG, the point describes the measures for avoidance of settlement failures for the reference of market participants.
