Amendment to IRGiT’s regulations - Rules of Conduct in the Event of Default

Please be informed that as from 1 April 2021, a new version of the Rules of Conduct in the Event of Default will come into force (“Rules”). 

The amendments are a result of a review of the Rules in view of the planned entry into force of a revised version of the Regulations of the Exchange Clearing House (Commodity Market) on 1 April 2021. The revised Rules comprise changes designed to optimize the control process of an event of Default, including:

  • more precise provisions on prudential mechanisms that the House may apply in respect of an Exchange Clearing House Member or a Clearing and Settlement House Participant, in order to reduce the possibility of occurrence of Default,
  • more emphasis on the duties of entities generating material risk for the clearing guarantee system.

Furthermore, the Rules of Conduct in the Event of Default also regulate the following issues:

  • a catalog of grounds serving as a basis to determine an event of Default in respect of a Clearing House Member,
  • the process of risk management and mitigation in respect of an Default, 
  • the rules of Default Waterfall usage. 

The Rules of Conduct in the Event of Default have been published on IRGiT’s website.
