On July 18, 2016, the CFTC issued an Order extending the designation of DTCC-SWIFT as the provider of legal entity identifiers for entities under its jurisdiction, including swaps and swap counterparties, by another year. The CFTC initially designated DTCC-SWIFT as LEI provider by an Order on July 23, 2012. The CFTC has previously extended such designation. Consistent with the prior CFTC orders, registered entities and swap counterparties subject to the CFTC’s jurisdiction can continue to comply with the CFTC’s swap data recordkeeping and reporting rules by using LEIs issued by DTCC-SWIFT.
