An international currency exchange agreement (IFEMA) is a key agreement between two parties for cash and forward currency exchange (Forex) transactions. A framework agreement is a standard agreement between two parties, which sets standard conditions for all these transactions between the parties. The IFEMA agreement covers all facets of these foreign exchange transactions and provides detailed practices for the establishment and settlement of a Forex contract. In addition to the terms of the contract, IFEMA explains the consequences of delay, force majeure or other unforeseen circumstances. This section of the EMTA website lists the different forms of standardized documents developed by EMTA in the FX and Currency Derivatives domain. Since the publication of the first submission conditions for non-deliverable FX transactions for the Argentine peso, Brazilian real, Indian roupiah, Korean won, Philippine peso and Taiwan dollar, EMTA has developed other such documentation to reduce the settlement delay, increase market transparency and increase efficiency.

Surveys conducted at the time IFXCO was conducted showed that, although there have been some significant changes in the Forex market since 1997 and many new contracts have been concluded with an updated ISDA management contract (from 2002), many participants have also used the IFEMA (and FEOMA) agreements. In general, this is due either to the fact that they had been executed some time earlier and had not been replaced, or because counterparties (including, until now, many non-traders, such as hedge funds) wanted to act only in exchange and/or exchange rate options transactions, and that IFEMA and FEOMA preferred because they were simpler agreements. At the same time as IFEMA was developed for foreign exchange transactions, other key agreements were developed by the same groupings for different types of transactions, namely ICOM for international market options and FEOMA, the director contract on currencies and options, which essentially includes the IFEMA and ICOM agreements, foreign exchange transactions and exchange options. This grouping of foreign exchange agreements was then completed by the International Foreign Exchange and Currency Option Master Agreement (IFXCO) in 2005 (again drafted by the same four groups).
