The 2002 ISDA adds a little complexity to deal with Illegality and Force Majeure notices. Otherwise the same.

Summary

This might help answer the vexed question of why there that curious “by not more than 20 days’ notice” period for a close-out notice under Section 6(a). You may have a Transaction that is due to roll off and you want it to settle before you close out the portfolio. It is not a very compelling reason, in fairness. But it at least suggests someone on the ISDA drafting commitee was thinking about it, even if not especially insightfully.

General discussion

Proposed ISDA amendments as a result of adjustment to Section 2(a)(iii)

The 2(a)(iii) amendment juggernaut seems to have lost its heat but there was a time when ISDA was proposing the following:

"Terminated Transactions” means, with respect to any Early Termination Date, (a) if resulting from an Illegality or a Force Majeure Event, all Affected Transactions specified in the notice given pursuant to Section 6(b)(iv), (b) if resulting from any other Termination Event, all Affected Transactions and (c) if resulting from an Event of Default, all Transactions, in each case under which a party has or may have any obligation, including, without limitation, an obligation to pay an amount that became payable (or would have become payable but for Section 2(a)(iii) or due but for Section 5(d)) to the other party under Section 2(a)(i) or 2(d)(i)(4) on or prior to that Early Termination Date and which remains unpaid as at such Early Termination Date.
