Transactions under an ISDA lead contract do not create separate and distinct contracts between the parties. Instead, they are included by reference to a single agreement as part of the isda Master Agreement Architecture. One of the advantages of the architecture of a single agreement is the ability to obtain payment commitments on multiple transactions at the level of each transaction, in order to determine a net amount to be paid at the ISDA Masteragrement level. The ISDA® Master Agreement consists of different elements. The main terms of the agreement are the typical part of the agreement, which sets out the fundamental legal rights and obligations of the parties to a derivatives transaction.

Confirmation of any derivative transactions under the ISDA® Master Agreement contains the economic conditions of the transaction. There may be thousands of confirmations concluded under the aegis of an isda® master agreement, but from a legal point of view, any confirmation is considered part of the only legal agreement that ISDA ® Master Agreement. The Credit Support Annex (CSA) is an optional agreement that can be established on the ISDA ® Master Agreement if counterparties wish to include a guarantee contract providing that the parties reserve guarantees.

Finally, the framework agreement provides significant assistance in managing risks and credit for the parties. The mastery agreement is the central document around which the rest of the ISDA documentation structure is cultivated. The pre-printed framework contract is never amended, with the exception of the addition of the names of the parties, but is adapted to the master agreement by the use of the calendar, a document containing options, additions and changes to the framework contract. The framework agreement and timetable define the reasons why one party may impose the closure of covered transactions due to the appearance of a termination event by the other party.
