The Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the Securities and Exchange Commission have announced that they will hold joint meetings on September 2 and 3 to seek public input regarding the harmonization of market regulation. These meetings stem from a June 17 White Paper on Financial Regulatory Reform, in which the White House called on the CFTC and SEC to make recommendations to Congress by September 30 for harmonizing their regulatory approach for similar types of financial instruments.

The CFTC press release announcing the meeting is available here.
