CFTC Publishes Eighth Series of Dodd-Frank Rules


The Commodity Futures Trading Commission has published its eighth series of rules under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The eighth series of CFTC rules and rule proposals relate to confirmation, portfolio reconciliation and portfolio compression requirements for swap dealers (SDs) and major swap participants (MSPs), registration obligations of derivatives clearing organizations (DCOs) and core principles and other requirements applicable to swap execution facilities (SEFs).

Accordingly, the CFTC is proposing rules that would impose certain standards on SDs and MSPs regarding the confirmation of swap transactions and the reconciliation and compression of swap portfolios.
