The National Futures Association (NFA) has issued Notice I-15-28, which discusses the legal entity identifiers (LEIs) that are now being used in the NFA’s swap dealer/major swap participant registry (SD/MSP Registry). The SD/MSP Registry provides a single, consolidated listing of all swap dealers and major swap participants, in addition to their CFTC registration status. Numerous entities, including swap data repositories and the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, requested the addition of LEIs to increase the usefulness of the information available through the SD/MSP Registry. NFA reminds members using the SD/MSP Registry to update their systems and procedures to reflect this change by July 1, 2016.
