    ProposedIntroduction of Clearing Novation to Regulations

    • Clearing novationmeansthat the clearing housetakesover the rights and obligations of a counterparty to a trade. Once a trade hasbeenaccepted for clearing, the rights and obligationsarising from the trade expire in the relations between the trade counterparties and arereplaced by newlegal relations.

    • Clearing novationwill be used on the organised market and outside the organised market.


    • If a counterparty to a trade is a clearing member and hascommitteditself to the clearing house to performobligationsarising from the clearing of itstrades, itisentitled to receiveorliable to provide a benefit resulting from the clearing of the trade vis-a-vis KDPW_CCP.

    Consequences of Clearing Novation to KDPW_CCP

    • Rights and obligationsarising from the trade expirewhilenewlegal relations arise, to which the clearing houseis a party.

    • The clearing houseisentitled to claim the benefitsarising from the trade with regard to the trade counterparty (ifitis a member) or a memberwhichis a party to clearing.

    • Once a trade hasbeenaccepted for clearing, a memberwhichis a party to clearing and the clearing housemayonlyraiseclaimsarising from the legal relations whichhavereplaced the original trade.

    • A memberwhichis a party to clearing cannotraiseclaimsagainst the clearing housearising from the legalrelationbetween the member and the entitywhichconcluded the trade.

    • Collateralestablished by the entityconcluding the trade subject to clearing by the CCP isexcluded from the liquidationassets of the member.


    • As a result of consultationsinitiated by KDPW with market institutions (PFSA, NBP, WSE, Chamber of Brokers, Polish Banks Association, BondSpot, Custodian Banks Council), a draft hasbeensubmitted to the Finance Ministry, requestinganamendment of the Act on Trading in Financial Instruments.

        Art. 45b - amendment of the definition of trade clearing: addition of the clearing house as entitled to receiveorliable to delivercash and non-cashbenefitsarising from concludedtrades;

        Art. 45e - amendmentexcludingcollateralestablished by the entityconcluding the trade outside of organised trading subjectto clearing by the clearing house from the liquidationassets of the member

        Art. 45g-45i -amendmentintroducing clearing novation.

        Art. 50, Art. 68b - amendmentaddingnewfunctionalities in the clearing house and KDPW regulations

        Art.68 - amendmentconcerningguaranteefunds, including establishment of guaranteefunds for tradesconcludedoutside the organised market
