On December 17, 2015, the CFTC’s Division of Swap Dealer and Intermediary Oversight issued a staff advisory to swap dealers and major swap participants as a reminder of swap data reporting obligations under CFTC Regulations 23.204 and 23.205. Pursuant to the regulations, SDs and MSPs must report all applicable information and data detailed in Parts 43 and 45 of the CFTC’s regulations. In the advisory, CFTC staff also provide examples of common problems they have observed with regard to swap data reporting along with guidance to address such issues.
