Staff of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission extended previously granted relief to swap execution facilities from a requirement that a SEF obtain certain documents referenced in trade confirmations it issues related to certain uncleared swaps transactions prior to actually issuing the confirmation. Specifically, a SEF may incorporate by reference terms of agreements previously negotiated by counterparties without actually having first received copies of such documents. (Click here for additional details of this no-action relief in the article, “CFTC Extends No Action Relief for SEFs With Respect to Certain Uncleared Swaps Transactions” in the March 18, 2016 edition of Corporate & Financial Weekly Digest by Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP.)
