Joint Report to Congress on International Swap Regulation


On February 1, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the Securities and Exchange Commission (the Agencies) submitted to Congress a Joint Report of International Swap Regulations (Report). The Report, which Congress directed the Agencies to prepare under section 719(c) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, describes the regulation of swaps and security-based swaps in the United States, Asia and Europe and identifies areas of regulation that are similar and other areas of regulation that can be harmonized. As required by section 719(c), the Report also identifies major dealers, exchanges, clearinghouses, clearing members, and regulators in each geographic area and lists the major contracts (including trading volumes, clearing volumes, and notional values), the methods for clearing swaps, and the systems used for setting margin in each geographic area.
