    IHS Markit IBOR Transition – Timeline Extension

    Please be advised that due to client demand the IBOR transition parallel run will be extended until 13 February 2022 (instead of 31 January 2022). During the parallel run, the legacy file format is published in the normal (legacy) directory while the new file format (including the new RFR analytics) is published in the new IBOR_TRANSITION sub-folder. This extension will allow clients an extra 2 weeks to facilitate the transition to the new file formats published in the IBOR_TRANSITION sub-folder.

    Starting from 14 February 2022, the legacy file format will cease to exist and the new file format (including the new RFR analytics) will be published in both the normal directory and the IBOR_TRANSITION sub-folder. Starting on 7 March 2022, the new file format will only be published in the normal directory and the full transition will be completed. This allows clients 3 weeks to switch back to the normal (legacy) folder directory where the new file format will be published.

    For more information please contact us at indices@ihsmarkit.com.
