End Users of Swaps: Deadline Extended for Swap Documentation to Comply with New Federal Requirements

The deadline for these amendments to comply with the Dodd-Frank Act’s requirements is now May 1, 2013.

This deadline was extended from the original deadline of January 1, 2013, under a January Commodity and Futures Trading Commission interim final rule.
