The Commodity Futures Trading Commission proposed rules to authorize swap data repositories to grant access to swap data to certain domestic and foreign regulatory authorities without their agreeing in writing to abide by a confidentiality and indemnification agreement as currently required by CFTC rules (the application of this provision has previously been waived in part through a CFTC Interpretive Statement, however; click here to access). Instead they would agree to be subject solely to a written confidentiality (but not an indemnification) arrangement to avoid such regulatory authorities’ possible breach of law. In addition, the CFTC proposed rules related to exchange disciplinary matters to require, among other things, publication of final disciplinary and access denial actions by swap execution facilities and designated contract markets on their websites.
