FHFA RIN: 2590-AB02 Publication ID: Spring 2020 
Title: Margin and Capital Requirements for Covered Swap Entities 

FHFA will adopt as a final rule the interim final rule it issued jointly with the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Farm Credit Administration (the "agencies") that amends the Swap Margin Rule. The Swap Margin Rule requires swap dealers and security-based swap dealers under the agencies’ respective jurisdictions to exchange margin with their counterparties for swaps that are not centrally cleared. The final rule amendments will accommodate swap transfers in response to the UK’s exit from the EU.
