On September 28, 2015, the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s Division of Market Oversight issued a noaction letter, CFTC Letter No. 15-52, that provides additional time for reporting parties to comply with certain reporting requirements of the ownership and control final rule (OCR Final Rule). The OCR Final Rule introduces to the CFTC’s transaction and reporting program certain new and updated forms for reporting trader identification and market participant data. CFTC Letter No. 15-52 supersedes previous no-action relief issued in February 2015, and extends relief until April 2016, September 2016, or February 2017, depending on the type of reporting requirement.
