On July 7th, the CFTC voted to adopt five final rules implementing provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act. The rulemakings relate to:

  • Anti-fraud and anti-manipulation;
  • Large trader reporting for swaps on physical commodities;
  • Definition of "agricultural commodity;"
  • Preventing certain business affiliate marketing and establishing other consumer information protections under the Fair Credit Reporting Act; and
  • Expanding scope of privacy protections for consumer financial information under the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act.
