The Cleared Derivatives Execution Agreement is a model intended to be used by cleared swap operators when negotiating execution agreements with counterparties for swaps that will be cleared by U.S. Futures Commission Merchants. The memorandum explains that the changes between version 1 and version 1.1 have resulted in significant changes in the documentation of derivatives. While unliquidated derivatives continue to be governed by an International Clearing and Exchange Association (ISDA) framework contract and a credit assistance annex, cleared derivatives require other documents, such as: (i) netting agreements, (ii) netting agreements, and (iii) collateral conversion agreements. Transactions underlying a CDEA remain subject to the applicable contractual conditions (e.g. (B.dem ISDA framework contract in the case of OTC derivatives transactions). The purpose of the CDEA is to serve as a model for counterparties to use in documenting the process for depositing, accepting and refusing certain transactions for approval. The document is first and foremost a first draft whose authors acknowledge that it may not be necessary or appropriate in all circumstances and that it is subject to change and/or replace if the rules on CCP clearing evolve. The Cleared Derivatives Execution Agreement is a model intended to be used by participants in cleared swaps when negotiating execution agreements with counterparties for swaps that will be cleared. The recently published FIA-ISDA derivatives execution agreement is the industry`s first attempt to regulate relations between parties establishing trades for central clearing. Michael Beaton, Managing Director of Documentation Risk Solutions, explains the structure of this new legal agreement. Following the acceptance by the competent clearing organisation of a derivatives transaction for clearing, it shall be considered that each Party A and Part B have entered into separate cleared derivatives transactions governed by the agreement in force with their respective clearing member (unless Party A and/or Part B are already clearing members of the clearing entity concerned) and that any party may not have any other right or obligation vis-à-vis the other derivatives transaction in question.
. On each termination (whether considered or actual) one party pays the other an early termination amount (“ETA”) in accordance with section 6(e) of a 2002 Isda framework agreement, considered between the parties to exist between the parties and based on the following assumptions: Where the clearing member of a party (the “party involved”): after 31 December, 1998 and after all the obligations of the CDEA within the Planning and Research Office have been fulfilled, the unused balance of the appropriations authorized by this item is available for the expenses referred to in item 0558-001-0001, as approved by the Chief Financial Officer. . . .
