FIA works closely with member firms to develop industry-standard agreements and other documentation that all market participants can use to support their trading and clearing functions as well as ensure regulatory compliance in different jurisdictions. FIA houses these documents on our Documentation Services platform.  The platform is divided into three main parts:


FIA CCP Risk Review™

FIA’s CCP Risk Review™ summarizes the rules and procedures of CCPs worldwide.Written in practical, comparative terms and incorporating key implications of applicable law where relevant, the FIA CCP Risk Review assists market participants and regulators in scrutinizing and understanding the risks relating to CCPs, for both clearing members and clients. (Subscription-only access)



European Documentation Library

FIA’s European Documentation Library puts valuable legal opinions and client terms of business at your fingertips. This documentation helps you meet regulatory requirements and/or common commercial objectives such as facilitating commercial dealings or addressing areas of capital or risk. Currently, these subscription-only services in the FIA European Documentation Library include Client Terms of Business, Legal Opinions and Indirect Clearing Documentation.

*NEW* FIA recently released our newest, fully updated and comprehensive state-of-the-art set of industry standard contractual terms for derivatives clearing – the FIA Terms of Business 2018, as well as the accompanying User Guide explaining the regulatory background to most of the provisions and including alternative/optional provisions. (Subscription-only access)  


U.S. Documentation Library

FIA’s US Documentation Library contains a wide range of guidance documents and template agreements and disclosures. These include standard give-up agreements, client clearing and execution agreements, risk disclosure statements and a number of exchange-specific agreements.
