Todays Regulatory Framework for Clearing
  • Clearing operations are governed by
  • - Federal Law No. 39-FZ of April 22, 1996 On
    the Securities Market, which defines clearing
    and clearing operations only in the securities
  • - Resolution of the Federal Commission for
    the Securities Market No. 32-ps of August 14,
    2002, which only defines ordinary, multilateral
    and centralized clearing in the execution of
    securities transactions
  • - Regulations of the Central Bank of the
    Russian Federation No. 219-P of March 25, 2003
    and No. 220-P of February 25, 2003, which govern
    clearing in the government securities market.
  • Standards applied to clearing in the securities
    market are used for clearing in the currency and
    government securities markets.

Improvement of Clearing Laws in Russia

  • The central counterpartys (CCP) legal status
    defining will allow to introduce the CCP in the
    financial market as an independent
    infrastructural entity which concludes
    transactions for clearing purposes without being
    a trade participant and is rewarded for
    rendering clearing services.
  • Determination of the legal status of deposited
    and blocked funds (property) of clearing
    participants for securing their obligations will
    allow to reduce the risk they litigate the use
    of the above-mentioned funds by the CCP.
  • Introduction of separate legal status and usage
    mode for clearing accounts to prevent them from
    being used in the bank account mode envisioned by
    the Civil Code of the Russian Federation,
    including unconditional cash debiting upon the
    clearing participants request. The clearing
    institution needs to have the right to withhold
    the clearing participants funds until its
    obligations are fully fulfilled.

Improvement of Clearing Laws in Russia (contd)
  • Amendment to the Laws On Joint-Stock Companies
    and On Limited Liability Companies stating that
    the standard for major and related-party
    transactions will not apply to transactions
    concluded in the course of organized trade, which
    will reduce the risk of litigation of the
    above-mentioned transactions by market
    participants, including transactions with the
  • Establishing the possibility and procedure for
    using assets of the Risk Covering Fund and
    guarantee funds in full volume.
  • Introduction of the procedure for the fulfillment
    of obligations by the clearing participant in
    case of his bankruptcy or license withdrawal will
    allow to terminate the obligations of such
    participant only after their fulfillment.
  • Establishing legal grounds and procedures for the
    cancellation of clearing service agreement will
    allow to cancel such agreement by mutual consent
    between the parties rather than at any time as
    provided for by Chapter 39 of the Civil Code of
    the Russian Federation.

Improvement of Clearing Laws in Russia (contd)
  • Establishment by law of the procedure and new way
    for termination of obligations in the course of
    clearing will allow a clearing institution to
    define and terminate the obligations of clearing
  • None of the ways for termination of obligations
    currently envisioned by the Civil Code of the
    Russian Federation allows the clearing
    institution which is not a party in the
    transaction to terminate the clearing
    participants obligations. This does not allow to
    conduct ordinary or multilateral clearing
    operations. Clearing with the CCP is not
    envisioned by laws of the Russian Federation.
  • Centralized clearing operations can only be
    performed using the assignment of rights what
    requires the consent from the other party in the
    transaction. The clearing centre has to track the
    rights and obligations of the party so as not to
    become the all-in-one debtor and creditor in the
    result of assignment.
