For information regarding the future of LIBOR, including links to statements from the FCA relating to the future cessation or unrepresentativeness of LIBOR and the FCA’s decision to compel IBA to publish the 1 -, 3- and 6-Months GBP and JPY LIBOR settings under a changed “synthetic” methodology, please see the section on our LIBOR webpage headed “The Future of LIBOR”.
ICE Benchmark Administration (IBA) provides transparent, fair and sustainable access to the benchmarks for all users. IBA licenses the use or redistribution of the benchmarks on a commercial and reasonable basis, to help set standards of fairness and transparency in benchmark distribution and licensing.

For LIBOR and ICE Swap Rate, intraday data is available 4 hours after original publication time and delayed data is available 24 hours after original publication time.
