The Commodity Futures Trading Commission has proposed to issue an order (the Proposed Order) providing temporary relief from certain swap-related provisions of Title VII of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that would otherwise take effect on July 16, 2011. The CFTC proposal, which describes the scope of the proposed exemptive relief but does not include the actual text of the Proposed Order, groups the provisions of Title VII as to which the CFTC has regulatory responsibility into four broad categories:
1. provisions that, by their terms, do not take effect without the adoption of implementing rules;
2. self-effectuating provisions that include references to terms that require further definition;
3. self-effectuating provisions that do not reference terms requiring further definition and that repeal current provisions of the Commodity Exchange Act (CEA); and
4. other self-effectuating provisions.
