To address the margin requirements for uncleared cross-border swaps not subject to U.S. banking regulations, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) proposed a rule on June 29, 2015. Under the proposed rules, if the duties of a non-US CSE are assured by a US person or if a non-US CSE is a “Foreign Consolidated Subsidiary," then, the non-US covered swap entities (CSEs) is obliged to apply the same margin rules for uncleared swaps as a US CSE.
As one of the results, entities trading with CSEs will be indirectly impacted. Consequently, financial end users may encounter CSE requests for information and representations. Financial end users should enforce systems for the computation of notional across organizations.
