In 2014, the Fed, FDIC, OCC, FCA, and FHFA (collectively, the “Prudential Regulators”) voted to re-propose rules that would impose margin requirements on prudentially regulated swap dealers (SDs), major swap participants (MSPs), security-based swap dealers (SB-SDs), and security-based major swap participants (SB-MSPs) (collectively, “Covered Swap Entities”) entering into uncleared swaps and security-based swaps.  In a separate vote, the CFTC voted to re-propose similar rules applicable to non-prudentially regulated SDs and MSPs.  

If adopted, the proposals would impose initial and variation margin requirements on transactions between covered swap entities and certain counterparties, including transactions with affiliates.
