Cross-Border Proposed Interpretive Guidance
August 27, 2012

From the comment letter:

"Although through central counterparty clearing, the credit of the clearing house is substituted for the credit of each counterparty through the novation process, a clearing house is not a "counterparty" as contemplated by these definitions. To treat the clearing house as a "counterparty" within the meaning of a SD and/or MSP would render every person who clears an SD under DFA and commission regulations. Congress did not intend such an extreme result."
