ICE Futures Europe reminded its members that they and market participant must be in full compliance with its ownership and control requirements by March 29. Under these requirements, clearing members must identify all reportable position and volume threshold accounts for exchange contracts subject to the exchange’s position reporting requirements. These requirements are equivalent to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s OCR requirements. (Click here for background regarding the CFT’s requirements in the article “CFTC Again Extends Deadlines for New OCR Compliance; Puts Pressure on FCM Clients Who Will Not Provide Adequate Information Regarding Trading Control” in the April 10, 2016 edition of Bridging the Week.) Market participants are obligated to assist members in their OCR obligations, as necessary.
