ISDA Common Domain Model Version 1.0 Design Definition Document
Presented in this document is the definition of version 1.0 of the ISDA Common Domain Model (ISDA CDM). The ISDA CDM aims to deliver a standardized model for the post-execution trade lifecycle, focusing on the non-differentiating aspects of that trade lifecycle that are candidates for mutualization by the industry. The purpose of this initial conceptual version of the model is to begin a discussion with ISDA’s membership and the broader industry on the feasibility of an ISDA CDM as the basis for such common process and data standards. ISDA would ask readers to provide questions or comments by November 8, 2017 to: MarketInfrastructureandTechnology@isda.org.
