On 4 June 2014, the CFTC’s Division of Swap Dealer and Intermediary Oversight, Division of Clearing and Risk, and Division of Market Oversight issued a time-limited no-action letter that extends relief to swap dealers (“SDs”) registered with the CFTC that are established under the laws of jurisdictions other than the United States (“Non-US SDs”) from certain transaction-level requirements under the Commodity Exchange Act.

The letter provides no-action relief to Non-US SDs until 31 December 2014, subject to the limitations in the letter.
