The template follows in the footsteps of the Master Regulatory Reporting Framework launched by the International Securities Lending Association (ISLA) and a number of other industry associations back in December, which is applicable to both EMIR and the first phase of SFTR. According to ISLA, the agreement has been designed to remain effective even after the UK leaves the EU.
