The Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s Division of Market Oversight recently issued a press release to remind all participants in CFTC-regulated derivatives markets that certain time-limited no-action relief from compliance with certain provisions of the Ownership and Control Report (OCR) final rule expires on November 18. Specifically, the relief granted in CFTC Letter No. 16-32 from the electronic submission requirements for Forms 40/40S and 71 expires. However, staff noted that reporting obligations for Forms 40/40S and 71 are triggered only if a market participant receives a request from the CFTC staff. Therefore, market participants have no immediate obligations with respect to these provisions of the rule.
