In this meeting we reviewed the draft XSD for the MC1 message.  This represents the interpretation of the work we have done in the previous weeks to translate to FpML syntax. 


We discussed how FpML already contains definitions of Collateral and IndependentAmount and that the current definitions are not suitable for the Margin Messages.  This will require communication with the FpML Coordination Committee and a proposal to change or use of different terms in the Margin Messages.  The existing IndependentAmount definition is based on trade level IA for an individual trade.  For the Margin Messages IA contains the ability to define the aggregated trade level IA requirement as one element.  For the time being IndependentAmount for the Margin Messages have been changesd to be AggregatedIndependentAmount.  This included reviewing the remaining pieces of the MC1 message Margin Terms, Collateral, Margin Requirements, Margin Results and Expected Collateral.


Collateral has IndependentAmount as its sub element in the existing definition there are no more elements. Therefore it too relates to trade level definition of IA.  For now in the MarginMessages this has been changed to CollateralBalance.


We also looked at an example of an xml message that was based on the new xsd for a simple delivery scenario. As a take away for the group we agreed to start to build out some test examples to validate the schema based on the msg-ex-MC1-request-margin-call_Template.xml.
