On March 1st, the CFTC published the proposing release and text of rules regarding the registration of intermediaries to conform existing CFTC rules to amendments made by the Dodd-Frank Act. The Act removed the market category "Derivatives Transaction Execution Facility", and added the market category "Swap Execution Facility". The proposed rule would therefore remove all references to Derivatives Transaction Execution Facility, and selectively add references to Swap Execution Facility, Swap Dealer, and Major Swap Participant where appropriate. Also, the proposal would exempt an Associated Person of a Swap Dealer or Major Swap Participant from registering as a Swap Dealer or Major Swap Participant. Comments should be submitted within 60 days after publication in the Federal Register which is expected during the week of March 7. Registration of Intermediaries.
