In response to a petition for rulemaking by the National Futures Association (NFA), the Commodity Futures Trading Commission has proposed amendments to CFTC Regulations 4.26 and 4.36 that would require commodity pool operators (CPOs) and commodity trading advisors (CTAs) to file their disclosure documents electronically with the NFA using its new online disclosure document filing system. Currently, most CPOs and CTAs file their disclosure documents with the NFA via e-mail. Users will access the new filing system using the same login and password that they currently use for NFA’s Online Registration System.  

The comment period for the proposed amendments closes on December 26.
