On 14 August 2020, the FSB published a common template for gathering information about continuity of access to financial market infrastructures (FMIs) for firms in resolution. The template takes the form of a questionnaire that all FMIs are encouraged to complete. The responses to the questionnaire should be published or made available to firms that use the FMI services and their resolution authorities in other ways to inform their resolution planning.

On 23 September 2020, the FSB Secretariat, together with representatives of the official sector and industry, organised a virtual outreach meeting to explain the questionnaire to stakeholders and answer their questions.

This note provides an informal summary of the outreach meeting and responses to the questions posed by external stakeholders.
