Most over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives ( transactions are documented using standardized documentation published by the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, Inc. ( (ISDA). This documentation typically includes the ISDA Master Agreement ( (ISDA Master), a Schedule to the ISDA Master ( , one or more transaction confirmations ( and often an ISDA Credit Support Annex ( (CSA), as well as ISDA definitions and protocols, incorporated by reference.

Despite heavy regulation of OTC derivatives since the financial crisis, ISDA documents continue to play a prominent role in documenting swaps and derivatives transactions globally. Because of the continued importance of the ISDA Master Agreement and related supporting ISDA documentation, Practical Law Finance created this ISDA Master Toolkit to guide subscribers through our library of resources that break down, explain and make sense of ISDA documents and help counsel to successfully draft and negotiate ISDA transaction documentation.

The following is a complete list of all ISDA Master Agreement Toolkit resources:
