Title and Brief Summary
Statement on Administrative Monetary Penalty Policies Effective
We are going to look to work with Finance Canada to review the legislation in relation to our penalty program. We are also examining our administrative monetary penalty policies to ensure, among other things, that they strike an appropriate balance between the need for transparency and the requirements of the Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) and Terrorist Financing Act.
Guideline E-22 Margin Requirements for Non-Centrally Cleared Derivatives
In February of 2016, OSFI issued the final version of Guideline E-22 Margin Requirements for NonCentrally Cleared Derivatives. Under this Guideline, most Federally Regulated Financial Institutions (FRFIs) meeting the definition of a covered entity (Covered FRFIs) are subject to the mandatory exchange of variation margin beginning on March 1, 2017.
For FRFIs transacting with counterparties that do not present a significant exposure to them, OSFI now expects those FRFIs to meet the variation margin requirements by no later than September 1, 2017.
