On February 23rd, the Division of Clearing and Intermediary Oversight granted a commodity pool operator's request to be exempted from having the pool's annual report certified. The proprietary commodity pool consists of only two participants, one of which is a principal of the general partner, the pool's participants have received monthly account statements prepared by an unassociated third-party accounting firm, and the CPO submitted signed waivers from each of the pool's participants consenting to the exemption. CFTC Letter No. 10-02.
