The Commodity Futures Trading Commission issued an advisory reminding registered futures commission merchants, clearing members, foreign brokers, swaps dealers and certain reporting markets of their obligation to obtain certain information from their customers on a timely basis to enable them to comply with CFTC ownership and control reporting obligations. Under new rules adopted by the CFTC in 2013 (and modified subsequently through various no-action letters), reporting entities will be required to file comprehensive information with the Commission regarding certain customers with large positions or significant trading activity, electronically, beginning September 15, 2015.
