The Futures Industry Association (FIA) and the International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA, the associations) welcome the efforts by CPMI and IOSCO on auction design, especially the extensive engagement with the industry including the two workshops held on this topic. The CPMI-IOSCO discussion paper on central counterparty default management auctions  (the discussion paper) accurately represents the views presented at these workshops, including some questions where different constituents of the industry do not agree.

ISDA Publishes Best Practice Recommendations for CCPs

ISDA has published a set of best practices for central counterparties (CCPs), aimed at ensuring greater consistency in risk practices at CCPs across the globe.

The recommendations follow a default at Nasdaq Clearing last September, which exceeded the defaulting member’s margin and default fund contribution and required the use of mutualized resources – the second such event in five years. The paper highlights steps that can be taken to minimize the potential for a member default to impact other members and the financial system as a whole, except in an extreme stress event.

Welcome to 2019 - The OTC Space has been busy with other projects, but I couldn't miss passing on this one from ISDA. Does anyone else find it interesting that ISDA has taken on the role of reminding CCPs how to do their job properly?

I would think regulators themselves should be reminding CCPs of these sensible guidelines. Given the flood of clearing regulations, is there some doubt that CCPs can do their job?
