Which derivatives are subject to regulatory initial and variation margin requirements?

ISDA has published February 17, 2020 advisory paper DERIVATIVES SUBJECT TO NON-CLEARED MARGIN RULES (INITIAL AND VARIATION MARGIN) which does not contain legal advice and should not be considered a guide to or explanation of all relevant issues or considerations in connection with the impact of margin rules on derivative transactions.

Initial and variation margins are subjects of EMIR Q&A 3a, 3b, 7, 89, 18 and 48 where reporting parties can search for their particular case.

Please note that The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) launched in 2017 Q&A tool, providing easy access to stakeholders to consult existing Q&As and submit new questions.
