On January 21, 2016, the CFTC launched a new website to provide the public with information about whistleblower rights and protections, and to allow the public to submit tips about potential violations of the Commodity Exchange Act via the website. The website guides users through filing a tip and applying for an award and contains accessible information about the rules and regulations governing the CFTC’s Whistleblower Program and related updates.

The press release is available at: http://www.cftc.gov/PressRoom/PressReleases/pr7312-16#PRBoxR1 and the website is available at: www.whistleblower.gov
