  •  Data Management Best Practices (DCAM): the science and discipline of data management from a practical perspective (data management maturity, data quality, benchmarking).  
  • Data Implications of Regulation: translating the legislative objectives of transparency, financial stability, compressed clearing and cross-asset market surveillance into regulatory objectives and practical reporting requirements.  
  • Business Network: global meeting ground, CDO Forum and mechanism for sustainable business relationships

There are 135 corporate members of the Council (http://www.edmcouncil.org/councilmembers). We are governed by a board of 24 (http://www.edmcouncil.org/board). For more information visit www.edmcouncil.org.
