ISDA Response to ESMA and EC on Proposed Technical Standards on Brexit-related Novations

+0

ISDA sent a letter to ESMA and the European Commission commenting on the proposed technical standards on Brexit-related novations. ISDA welcomes these standards that seek to give relief from the margining and clearing requirements to OTC derivative contracts that are transferred (novated) from a UK to an EU counterparty.  However, the fact that the relief is contingent on the event of a no-deal Brexit makes it operationally difficult for firms to enter into agreements to novate contracts.
