The National Futures Association (NFA) petitioned the Commodity Futures Trading Commission on July 21 to amend CFTC Regulations 4.26 and 4.36, which require commodity pool operators (CPOs) and commodity trading advisors (CTAs) to file copies of their disclosure documents with the NFA. The proposed amendments would require CPOs and CTAs to file their disclosure documents online using the NFA’s electronic disclosure document filing system. This would replace the current system, under which most CPOs and CTAs submit their disclosure documents to the NFA via email. The NFA’s electronic system will allow filers to track the status of their filing and access copies of previous filings and NFA responses online.
