CFTC Publishes Thirteenth Series of Dodd-Frank Rules


The Commodity Futures Trading Commission has published its thirteenth series of proposed rules under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The proposals relate to the establishment of initial and variation margin requirements for uncleared swaps and to recordkeeping and reporting requirements for existing swaps.

Margin Requirements for Uncleared Swaps

The CFTC has proposed rules to implement Section 731 of the Dodd-Frank Act, which requires the CFTC to adopt rules imposing initial and variation margin requirements on all swaps that are not cleared by a derivatives clearing organization (DCO). The margin requirements would apply to uncleared swaps entered into after the effective date of the rules.
