Products ISDA Committee Formed To Coordinate Smooth Central Counterparty Clearing

The Industry Clearing Committee is a committee started by the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, Inc. (ISDA). The ICC consists of a broad cross-section of over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives industry market participants.

The ICC was formed in June 2011 with the stated goal of meeting current and emerging industry needs in respect of clearing. More specifically, the ICC would assist in coordinating industry efforts to reach optimal levels of central counterparty clearing and to address obstacles in achieving those levels.[1]

As of January of 2011, the ICC comprised 16 dealer banks, 13 buy-side firms, plus the three current CCPs that would eventually number four, as well as other trade associations.[2]
