The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision and the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) have revised the framework for margin requirements for non-centrally cleared derivatives

Relative to the 2019 framework the revision extend by one year the final two implementation phases of the margin requirements. With this extension, the final implementation phase will take place on 1 September 2022. This extended timeline will provide additional operational capacity for firms to respond to the immediate impact of the Covid-19 and at the same time, facilitate covered entities to act diligently to comply with the requirements by the revised deadline.

The Basel Committee and IOSCO will continue to monitor progress in implementation to ensure consistent implementation across products, jurisdictions and market participants.
