COMMODITY FUTURES TRADING COMMISSION

17 CFR Ch. I

Regulatory Flexibility Agenda

AGENCY: Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda.

_______________________________________________________________________

SUMMARY: The Commodity Futures Trading Commission, in accordance with
the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, is publishing a
semiannual agenda of significant rules which the Commission expects to
propose or promulgate over the next year. The Commission welcomes
comments from small entities and others on the agenda.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Barbara Webster Black, Special
Assistant to the Executive Director, Commodity Futures Trading
Commission, 1155 21st Street NW., Washington, DC 20581, (202) 418-5130,
bblack@cftc.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C.
601, et seq. (RFA), sets forth a number of requirements for agency
rulemaking. Among other things, the RFA requires that:

    (a) During the months of April and October of each year, each
agency shall publish in the Federal Register a regulatory
flexibility agenda that shall contain:

    (1) A brief description of the subject area of any rule which
the agency expects to propose or promulgate which is likely to have
a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small
entities;

    (2) A summary of the nature of any such rule under
consideration for each subject area listed in the agenda pursuant
to paragraph (1), the objectives and legal basis for the issuance
of the rule, and an approximate schedule for completing action on
any rule for which the agency has issued a general notice of
proposed rulemaking; and

    (3) The name and telephone number of an agency official
knowledgeable about the items listed in paragraph (1). 5 U.S.C.
602(a).

    The Commission has prepared an agenda of significant rules
which it presently expects may be considered during the course of
the next year. These rules may have some impact on small
entities.\1\ In this regard, section 602(d) of the RFA, 5 U.S.C.
602(d), provides: "Nothing in [section 602] precludes an
agency from considering or acting on any matter not included in a
regulatory flexibility agenda or requires an agency to consider or
act on any matter listed in such agenda."

    The Commission's spring 2002 regulatory flexibility agenda is
set forth below.

Issued in Washington, DC, on February 27, 2002 by the Commission.

 Catherine D. Dixon,

Assistant Secretary of the Commission.


\1\ The Commission published its definition of small entity to be used
in connection with rulemaking proceedings on April 30, 1982 (47 FR
18618). Pursuant to that definition, the Commission is not required to
list many of the agenda items contained in this regulatory flexibility
agenda. See 5 U.S.C. 602(a)(1). Moreover, the Commission has previously
certified, pursuant to section 605 of the RFA, 5 U.S.C. 605, that
certain items contained in this agenda will not have a significant
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Accordingly,
the listing of a rule in this regulatory flexibility agenda should not,
in any event, be taken as a determination that a rule, when proposed or
promulgated, will in fact require a regulatory flexibility analysis.
However, the Commission hopes that the publication of an agenda which
includes significant rules, regardless of their potential impact on
small entities, may serve the public generally by providing an early
and meaningful opportunity to participate in and comment on the
formulation of new or revised regulations. In addition to publishing
the regulatory flexibility agenda, the Commission also makes available
to the public, on a monthly basis, a calendar and, on a weekly basis,
posts an advisory on its website (http://www.cftc.gov) which lists
rules that the Commission is considering or will consider in the near
future.

_______________________________________________________________________

3631. REGISTRATION EXEMPTIONS PERTAINING TO THE OFFER AND SALE OF
FOREIGN FUTURES AND FOREIGN OPTIONS CONTRACTS TO CUSTOMERS LOCATED IN
THE UNITED STATES

Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant

Legal Authority: 7 USC 2(a)(1)(A); 7 USC 6(b); 7 USC 6c

CFR Citation: 17 CFR 30.1; 17 CFR 30.4; 17 CFR 30.10

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: The Commission proposes to codify some of the interpretations
and positions that its staff has taken regarding registration
requirements under Part 30 of the Commission's rules, which governs,
generally, the solicitation and sale of foreign futures and foreign
options contracts to customers located in the United States. The
Commission proposes to modify Rule 30.4(a) by clarifying that foreign
futures and options brokers, including

[[Page 34066]]

those with U.S. bank branches, are not required to register as futures
commission merchants (FCMs) pursuant to Rule 30.4, or seek Rule 30.10
relief, if they fall generally into the following categories: (1) those
that carry customer omnibus accounts for U.S. FCMs; (2) those that
carry U.S. affiliate accounts that are proprietary to the foreign
futures and options broker; and (3) those that carry U.S. accounts that
are proprietary to a U.S. FCM. In addition, proposed Rule 30.10(a) will
specify representations that must be made by a foreign futures and
options broker that has U.S. bank branches in order to obtain a Rule
30.10 comparability exemption or to come within the registration
exception of Rule 30.4.
