Webcast 2019 – Part 1 The ISDA Executive Contract contains 8 standard default events such as . B failure to pay or deliver, breach or refusal of contract, misrepresentation, cross-referral and bankruptcy. In the event of a default, the non-failing party may choose to continue or terminate all smart derivative contract transactions under the ISDA director contract. Under the smart derivative contract, disputes may arise between parties at the transaction level (for example. B disagreement over the calculation of a given transaction, the typical events of delay or termination events under the isDA executive contract or other unsurred events, such as fraud. In addition, derivatives market participants must also take into account additional requirements related to the smart derivatives contract, such as. B false data entry or payment delays due to system failure. In accordance with the legal guidelines on smart derivatives contracts published by ISDA in 2019: introduction, the term “smart contract” can be interpreted in different ways, and one of its best definitions is: “An intelligent contract is an automated and enforceable agreement. Computer-automated, although some parts may require human input and control. Enforceable either by the application of rights and obligations or by the execution of manipulative computer codes. Section 4 of the ISDA Master Contract contains provisions for agreements between the parties, such as the provision of certain information, the obtaining of necessary administrative or other authorizations and the payment of stamp duty. In the event of a delay or termination that is not corrected in a timely manner, a party may be allowed to conclude or terminate transactions under the ISDA master contract.
The closing process consists of five main steps: Section 9 of the ISDA Master Contract defines the mechanism for amending the terms of the ISDA management contract. Any change only takes effect if it is executed in writing and executed by each of the parties involved. Given the need to modify/update the underlying computer code of an intelligent derivative contract that may affect the underlying contract, it is important that the parties be familiar with the amendable provisions of the ISDA master contract. Parties may also consider agreeing to an alternative mechanism to deal with technological changes if the existing amending mechanism under the ISDA framework contract is deemed inadequate. The provisions for delay and termination events are defined in Section 5 of the ISDA Management Contract. In this article, an intelligent derivative contract is essentially a derivative containing computer code to automate certain aspects of the derivative transaction through the use of technologies such as distributed ledgerers. Therefore, the terms written in computer codes can be run automatically from the computer under pre-defined conditions. For example, provisions that require one party to make payments or deliveries to another party after a pre-defined event has arrived are well suited to automated processing. With respect to Step 4 above, the non-failing party or the non-affected party has the option of replacing all the outstanding payment and delivery commitments of the other party resulting from the terminated transactions with a single amount of early termination. This process is called “closed circuiting.”
