CFTC Publishes Seventh Series of Dodd-Frank Rules


The Commodity Futures Trading Commission has published its seventh series of rules under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The latest round of CFTC rules and rule proposals relates to an “end user” exception from otherwise-mandatory swap clearing requirements; governance requirements for derivatives clearing organizations (DCOs), designated contract markets (DCMs) and swap execution facilities (SEFs); the reporting of swaps entered into after the enactment of Dodd-Frank but before the effectiveness of the CFTC’s swap recordkeeping rules; and business conduct standards for swap dealers (SDs) and major swap participants (MSPs).
