Final Rule: Commodity Options

RIN: 3038–AD62

Agency/Agencies: CFTC

Federal Register Publication Date: 04/27/2012

Summary: The CFTC issued a final rule to repeal and replace the Commission’s current regulations concerning commodity options. The CFTC is also issuing an interim final rule (with a request for additional comment) that incorporates a trade option exemption into the final rules for commodity options (added § 32.3). For a transaction to be within the trade option exemption, the option, the offeror (seller), and the offeree (buyer), as applicable, must satisfy certain eligibility requirements, including that the option, if exercised, be physically settled, that the option seller meet certain eligibility requirements, and that the option buyer be a commercial user of the commodity underlying the option, and certain other regulatory conditions.
