It provides the contractual framework within which repurchase/return operations are carried out and contractually obliges both parties to apply close-out compensation to all ongoing transactions and guarantees covered by an agreement in the event of default by one of the parties. As of December 31, 2016, the group had signed the CSA part of the ISDA framework contract with 25 counterparties (compared to 24 in 2015). Exchange-traded derivatives are almost standardized products, with very limited variations. In contrast, an over-the-counter transaction is a contract negotiated by the private sector on terms agreed by the parties. Although the OTC derivatives market has not yet been regulated, the use of standard market documentation worldwide has achieved some element of standardization in this market, which facilitates and accelerates the entire documentation process. ISDA or the International Swaps and Derivatives Association have been at the forefront of implementing this evolution. ISDA is the largest financial federation in the world. Since its inception, ISDA has developed standard market documentation aimed at reducing risk and shaping the derivatives industry, in which its main members, namely: Large OTC derivatives dealers, are active. Its most notable achievement was the development of the ISDA Framework Agreement, which was revised in 1987, then in 1992, then in 2002, and made generally applicable to OTC derivatives. Provisions The ISDA Framework Contract consists of (i) the standard framework contract (the ISDA Master) which governs the general contractual relationship between the parties, (ii) the schedule used by the parties to negotiate terms in the standard contract or terminate new or additional provisions, and (iii) the confirmation defining the economic and financial conditions of each transaction and which may contain by reference one or more standard ISDAs. Definition brochures, depending on the nature of the transaction traded, are used for the instant definition of ISDA 2003 credit for credit risk swaps. The ISDA framework contract provides a hierarchical rule in case of discrepancy or conflict between the different documents. Therefore, within the meaning of Section 1(b), in the event of an inconsistency between the timetable and the framework agreement, the timetable shall take precedence and, in the event of an inconsistency between the provisions of the confirmation and the framework contract, including the timetable, confirmation shall take precedence for the purpose of the relevant transaction which it is intended to cover.
