On October 29th, the Treasury Department requested comment on whether it should exempt foreign-exchange swaps and forwards from the over-the-counter derivatives regulations being developed by the CFTC. The Dodd-Frank Act amended the Commodity Exchange Act to allow the Secretary of the Treasury to issue a written determination exempting foreign exchange swaps, foreign exchange forwards, or both, from the definition of a "swap" under the CEA. Comments should be submitted on or before November 29, 2010. 75 FR 66829.
