Multiple divisions of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission granted temporary regulatory relief to effectuate the possibility of a hard and soft Brexit as early as April 12, 2019. Under one letter, staff extended existing relief currently available to certain European Union entities under multiple staff correspondence to UK entities following Brexit, until such dates as provided for in the applicable letters. In another letter, staff provided temporary relief to ensure the continued application of substituted compliance and regulatory relief under various existing determinations and exemption orders for EU entities to UK entities while the CFTC assesses UK law to make equivalent determinations as appropriate. In the case of a hard Brexit, such relief will not extend beyond the latest of six months after the date the United Kingdom withdraws from the European Union.
