ISDA Response to BCBS/IOSCO Statement on Non-cleared Margin Requirements

ISDA has published the following response to the statement by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision and International Organization of Securities Commissions on the final implementation phases of the margin requirements for non-centrally cleared derivatives.

“We’re glad that regulators have recognized the challenges posed by the phase-five implementation of initial margin requirements. However, based on thorough data analysis, we believe the most appropriate solution is to lift the phase-five compliance threshold. This will create certainty and reduce operational complexity for smaller firms, without compromising safety and soundness.”
