Summary

We request the following code be added to the settlement rate option coding scheme to support FpML representation of Brazilian Real interest rate swaps.

Code: BRL.PTAX/BRL09

The Spot Rate for a Rate Calculation Date will be the Brazilian Real/U.S. Dollar offered rate for U.S. Dollars, expressed as the amount of Brazilian Reais per one U.S. Dollar, for settlement in two Business Days reported by the Banco Central do Brasil on SISBACEN Data System under transaction code PTAX-800 ("Consulta de Cambio" or Exchange Rate Inquiry), Option 5 ("Cotacoes para Contabilidade" or "Rates for Accounting Purposes") by approximately 6:00 p.m., Sao Paulo time, on that Rate Calculation Date.
