Overseas Security Advisory Council (Osac) Renewal, 63461-63462 [2014-25262]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 205 / Thursday, October 23, 2014 / Notices 17Ad–22(b)(2) requires FICC to establish, implement, maintain and enforce written policies and procedures reasonably designed to use margin requirements to limit its credit exposures to participants under normal market conditions and use risk-based models and parameters to set margin requirements.28 To these ends, the change may provide FICC with a more accurate measurement of daily credit exposure using a risk-based model and is designed to address exposures that may occur from intraday activity. In sum, FICC’s more accurate and timely calculations around and monitoring of GCF Repo® activity may better enable FICC to respond in the event that a member defaults. III. Conclusion It is therefore noticed, pursuant to Section 806(e)(1)(I) of the Payment, Clearing and Settlement Supervision Act,29 that the Commission does not object to advance notice proposal (SR– FICC2014–801) and that FICC is authorized to implement the proposal as of the date of this notice or the date of an order by the Commission approving a proposed rule change that reflects rule changes that are consistent with this advance notice proposal (SR–FICC– 2014–01), whichever is later. By the Commission. Kevin O’Neill, Deputy Secretary.
