On April 23rd, the National Futures Association reminded members that provisionally registered swap dealers ("SDs") and major swap participants ("MSPs") are required to submit policies and procedures relating to the CFTC's business conduct standards by May 1, 2013. Non-U.S. SDs and MSPs are not required to submit policies and procedures relating to CFTC Regulation 23.201(b)(3)(ii) at this time. The NFA has recommended that policies and procedures be submitted prior to the required submission date to allow time for NFA staff to confirm receipt of responsive materials and to accommodate potential follow-up with SDs and MSPs in the event of an incomplete submission. At a minimum, policies and procedures must be submitted to the NFA's Registration Documentation Submission System no later than 6:00 PM (EST) on the submission date in order for staff to confirm receipt of required documents ahead of overnight processing.
