    CFTC Adopts Rule Amendments Requiring Electronic Filing of Commodity Pool Annual Reports and the Division of Clearing and Intermediary Oversight Provides Guidance to Commodity Pool Operators with Respect to the Preparation and Filing of Commodity Pool Annual Financial Reports

    The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has adopted amendments to its Part 4 rules that require commodity pool operators (CPOs) to file commodity pool annual reports electronically with the National Futures Association. These rules will become effective thirty days after the date of their publication in the Federal Register.

    Separately, the CFTC’s Division of Clearing and Intermediary Oversight has issued its annual guidance letter to registered CPOs. The letter is intended to assist CPOs, and their public accountants, in complying with the Commission’s regulations on the preparation and filing of commodity pool annual financial reports.

    The letter to registered CPOs is available on the Commission’s website:
