What is the ISDA Notices Hub?

The proposed ISDA Notices Hub is an online platform designed to provide market participants with a faster, safer and more efficient method for delivering and receiving critical notices under ISDA and other Master Agreements. It would allow parties to maintain control of their contractual position even when more traditional means of delivery prove difficult or impossible – for example, during a pandemic or time of war. ISDA is seeking institution-level support for the ISDA Notices Hub ahead of a targeted launch in the first quarter of 2025.

Even just a small delay in the delivery of a termination notice – for example, from Friday afternoon until Monday morning – on a single medium-sized derivatives portfolio could result in an uncollateralized loss of $1 million*. Longer delays, more volatile conditions and larger portfolios could result in even worse outcomes – as some market participants discovered during recent geopolitical events. The ISDA Notices Hub is a new proposed online platform that will significantly improve the ability of market participants to manage termination-related processes under the ISDA Master Agreement.

* Based on a 99% value-at-risk calculation assuming an outright non-cleared derivatives portfolio with $10 million of initial margin.

Key Features

Instant delivery: The ISDA Notices Hub will allow the instantaneous delivery and receipt of critical termination-related notices on a highly secure, confidential and robust online platform.

Resolves challenges with traditional methods of delivery: It will function even when there are issues that would hamper traditional methods of delivering notices, including:

  • Pandemic lockdowns
  • Hostile activities
  • Stale notice addresses
  • Difficulties relying on emerging local infrastructure

Evidence of the time of delivery: The ISDA Notices Hub will time and date stamp delivered notices for use in legal proceedings, and provide auditable evidence that notices have not changed since issuance.

Keep physical notice details up to date: The ISDA Notices Hub will provide a golden source of physical notice details for all counterparties using the service, validated via periodic verification requests. Parties will be able to amend the details of all their Master Agreements with a single entry on the ISDA Notices Hub, ensuring current contact information is available when needed.

Quality user experience: The platform is being designed with all kinds of users in mind. They will benefit from a light-touch onboarding process and intuitive platform design with 24/7 customer support.

Seamless integration with ISDA Create: Notices drafted on ISDA Create will flow directly to the ISDA Notices Hub. A new suite of notice templates will be added to ISDA Create.


The ISDA Notices Hub will be scalable, allowing additional functionality to be added simply and efficiently over time. For example, coverage could be expanded to include termination notices under other Master Agreements and other notices under ISDA documents (such as fund net asset value reports).

ISDA is also speaking to global resolution authorities about using the ISDA Notices Hub to allow direct communication between regulators and counterparties of banks that enter resolution.


The ISDA Notices Hub will be available via S&P Global Market Intelligence’s Counterparty Manager platform, which also offers access to ISDA Amend, Request For Amendment, Know Your Customer, Outreach360 and Withholding Tax Utility. Counterparty Manager is already used by over 200,000 market participants worldwide to manage and share documentation and entity data in a highly secure environment.


To incentivize widespread adoption, ISDA does not intend to charge an adherence fee to use the multilateral protocol it will publish to add the ISDA Notices Hub to current ISDA Master Agreements. As with ISDA Amend, the ISDA Notices Hub is expected to be free for buy-side firms, while dealers are expected to be charged on a per group basis according to their ISDA membership category. A discount will be applied for years one and two to incentivize early adoption and in recognition that wider client adoption is likely to take time.

The ISDA Notices Hub will bring significant benefits to market participants in terms of the speed and efficiency of delivering notices during stable markets, but will be particularly valuable during periods of stress like the global financial crisis, the COVID-19 lockdown and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.


The target launch date is the first quarter of 2025, with work to build the platform starting in the third quarter of 2024.

Assessing Intent to Adopt

In April 2024, ISDA’s Chief Executive sent a letter to market participants asking for statements of support for the ISDA Notices Hub project and in-principle indications of their intent to adopt it if built. This is meant to ensure there is sufficiently wide adoption to justify the time, money and resources required to develop the ISDA Notices Hub.

To provide a basis for these commitments, ISDA and S&P Global Market Intelligence have published a written specification of the ISDA Notices Hub and its key features and an indicative cost model, as well as the results of a high-level legal survey of 71 e-contract opinion jurisdictions to provide visibility of any obvious impediments to the effectiveness of the ISDA Notices Hub under local laws. All of these materials are available on the ISDA website.

Assuming sufficient commitments are received, ISDA and S&P Global Market Intelligence will commence the build, draft the legal documents and obtain legal opinions for the top 20 jurisdictions in time for the go-live date.

In the absence of these commitments, it is unlikely that ISDA and S&P Global Market Intelligence will proceed with the project.

Contact and Further Information

The ISDA Notices Hub has the potential to significantly improve the safety and efficiency of financial markets, as well as enhance the risk management capability of individual market participants.
