    CFTC Staff to Host Public Roundtable to Discuss Dodd-Frank End-User Issues

    Washington, DC — The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) today announced that CFTC staff will hold a public roundtable on April 3, 2014 to discuss issues concerning end-users and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank). The CFTC has received a number of comments and requests for clarification from commercial end-users that have been impacted by Dodd-Frank.

    The roundtable will consist of three panels, discussing 1) the obligations of end-users under Regulation 1.35 concerning recordkeeping for commodity interest and related cash or forward transactions; 2) the appropriate regulatory treatment of forward contracts with embedded volumetric optionality; and 3) the appropriate regulatory treatment for purposes of the $25 million (special entity) de minimis threshold for swap dealing to government-owned electric utilities.
