On October 31, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission issued separate Orders of Registration as a foreign board of trade (FBOT) to Eurex Deutschland, CME Europe Limited, ICE Futures Europe, the London Metal Exchange and the London Stock Exchange plc. Registration as an FBOT allows each exchange to provide direct access to the exchange’s electronic order entry and trade matching systems to certain persons in the United States. The Orders of Registration were issued under Part 48 of the CFTC’s Regulations. Fourteen other Orders of Registration have been issued since the enactment of the Dodd-Frank Act.
