Margin and Capital Requirements for Covered Swap Entities
Document Number: 2020-14097
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-07-01
Agency: Farm Credit Administration, Agencies and Commissions, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Federal Reserve System, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury, Federal Housing Finance Agency
The OCC, Board, FDIC, FCA, and FHFA (each, an agency, and collectively, the agencies) are adopting a final rule that amends the agencies' regulations requiring swap dealers and security-based swap dealers under the agencies' respective jurisdictions to exchange margin with their counterparties for swaps that are not centrally cleared (Swap Margin Rule). The Swap Margin Rule as adopted in 2015 takes effect under a phased compliance schedule spanning from 2016 through 2020, and the entities covered by the rule continue to hold swaps in their portfolios that were entered into before the effective dates of the rule. Such swaps are grandfathered from the Swap Margin Rule's requirements until they expire according to their terms. The final rule permits swaps entered into prior to an applicable compliance date (legacy swaps) to retain their legacy status in the event that they are amended to replace an interbank offered rate (IBOR) or other discontinued rate, modifies initial margin requirements for non-cleared swaps between affiliates, introduces an additional compliance date for initial margin requirements, clarifies the point in time at which trading documentation must be in place, permits legacy swaps to retain their legacy status in the event that they are amended due to technical amendments, notional reductions, or portfolio compression exercises, and makes technical changes to relocate the provision addressing amendments to legacy swaps that are made to comply with the Qualified Financial Contract Rules, as defined in the Supplementary Information section. In addition, the final rule addresses comments received in response to the agencies' publication of the interim final rule that would preserve the status of legacy swaps meeting certain criteria if the United Kingdom withdraws from the European Union (hereafter ``Brexit) without a negotiated settlement agreement.
Margin and Capital Requirements for Covered Swap Entities
Document Number: 2020-14094
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-07-01
Agency: Farm Credit Administration, Agencies and Commissions, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury, Federal Housing Finance Agency, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System
The OCC, Board, FDIC, FCA, and FHFA (each an Agency and, collectively, the Agencies) are adopting and inviting comment on an interim final rule amending the Agencies' regulations that require swap dealers, security-based swap dealers, major swap participants, and major security-based swap participants under the Agencies' respective jurisdictions to exchange margin with their counterparties for swaps that are not centrally cleared (non-cleared swaps) (Swap Margin Rule). Under the Swap Margin Rule, as amended, initial margin requirements will take effect under a phased compliance schedule spanning from 2016 through 2020, and in a final rule published elsewhere in today's issue of the Federal Register, the Agencies have extended the phase-in period to 2021. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Agencies are extending by one year the phases 5 and 6 implementation deadlines for initial margin requirements from September 1, 2020, to September 1, 2021 (for phase 5) and from September 1, 2021, to September 1, 2022 (for phase 6). The Agencies' objective is to give covered swap entities additional time to meet their initial margin requirements under the rule so as not to hamper any efforts underway to address exigent circumstances caused by COVID-19.
Implementation of the Agreement Between the United States of America, the United Mexican States, and Canada (USMCA) Uniform Regulations Regarding Rules of Origin
Document Number: 2020-13865
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-07-01
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Department of the Treasury
This interim final rule amends the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regulations to implement the rules of origin provisions for preferential tariff treatment of the Agreement Between the United States of America, the United Mexican States, and Canada (USMCA). This document sets forth the framework for our regulations that provides further guidance regarding the rules of origin for those seeking USMCA preferential tariff treatment and includes the text of the Uniform Regulations regarding rules of origin, as trilaterally agreed upon by the United States, the United Mexican States (Mexico), and Canada. Because the USMCA supersedes the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) when the USMCA enters into force on July 1, 2020, this document also amends the NAFTA regulations to reflect that the NAFTA provisions do not apply to goods entered for consumption, or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, on or after July 1, 2020.
