On February 11th, the CFTC published for comment proposed amendments regarding Commodity Pool Operators and Commodity Trading Advisors. The proposal would establish new data collection for CPOs and CTAs that would: rescind the existing exemptions from registration; rescind the relief from the certification requirement for annual reports provided to operators of certain pools only offered to qualified eligible persons; modify the criteria for claiming relief; and require the annual filing of notices claiming exemptive relief. The proposal also includes new risk disclosure requirements for CPOs and CTAs regarding swap transactions. Comments should be submitted on or before April 12, 2011. 76 FR 7976.
