"CFTC Announces February 12 Public Meeting on Cross-Border Guidance"

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) announced that the Global Markets Advisory Committee (GMAC) will hold a public meeting on February 12, 2014, to discuss CFTC Staff Advisory 13-69 (Staff Advisory).

The Staff Advisory interpreted the CFTC’s Cross-Border Guidance to require a non-U.S. swap dealer to comply with particular CFTC regulations when it enters into a swap with a non-U.S. counterparty if the swap is arranged, negotiated or executed by personnel or agents of the non-U.S. swap dealer located in the U.S.
