On March 15th, the CFTC's Division of Market Oversight and Office of Data and Technology reminded all swap counterparties of the April 10, 2013 deadline for obtaining a legal entity identifier, known as a CFTC Interim Compliant Identifier ("CICI"). Swap counterparties are further reminded that for CICIs previously issued through third-party registration, the entity must self-certify the CICI data record before April 10. Entities that obtain CICIs through self-registration or assisted registration with permission do not need to also self-certify their CICIs. All swap counterparties must maintain their own CICIs after issuance, including periodic recertification. CFTC Press Release.
