Where margins are not entrusted to the designated Clearing Member, the designated Clearing Member shall be required to collect the required margins from the relevant customer in accordance with these Clearing Rules; and(d) the margins not entrusted to the designated Clearing Member shall be retained by CDP and may be applied in accordance with Rule 8.6B.1.
