As is well known, LIBOR will cease to be published on 31 December 2021 (for all currencies and tenors other than the most commonly used USD settings) and 30 June 2023 (for those remaining USD settings). Financial institutions must also work towards earlier LIBOR transition deadlines set for them by…

On 5 March 2021, the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) formally announced the dates of the future cessation or loss of representativeness of all 35 LIBOR settings currently published by ICE Benchmark Administration Limited (IBA).
This announcement:
constitutes an index cessation event under the International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA) IBOR fallbacks supplement and the ISDA 2020 IBOR fallbacks protocol for all LIBOR settings
may trigger contractual requirements in certain LIBOR fallback provisions
fixes the spread adjustments in the ISDA Fallbacks Supplement and ISDA 2020 IBOR Fallbacks Protocol

In a set of coordinated statements, LIBOR’s administrator, LIBOR’s principal regulator and the principal US banking regulators announced plans that would extend the period during which panel USD LIBOR quotations would be made available until the end of June 2023.  This would effectively provide a period for legacy USD LIBOR transactions to use LIBOR quotations for certain tenors after 2 January 2022 (when LIBOR is expected to cease for other currencies).
