Final Rule: Provisions Common to Registered Entities
Federal Register Publication Date: 07/27/2011
Summary: The CFTC adopted regulations to implement certain statutory provisions of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The CFTC also amended its existing regulations governing the submission of new products, rules, and rule amendments. The final regulations establish the CFTC’s procedural framework for the submission of new products, rules, and rule amendments by designated contract markets, derivatives clearing organizations (‘‘DCOs’’), swap execution facilities, and swap data repositories. In addition, the final regulations prohibit event contracts involving certain excluded commodities, establish special submission procedures for certain rules proposed by systemically important derivatives clearing organizations, and stay the certifications and the approval review periods of novel derivative products pending jurisdictional determinations.
