Semiannual Regulatory Agenda

COMMODITY FUTURES TRADING COMMISSION (CFTC)

_______________________________________________________________________

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 that 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: Eileen A. Donovan, Assistant Secretary
for FOIA Matters, Commodity Futures Trading Commission, 1155 21st
Street NW., Washington, DC 20581, (202) 418-5096, edonovan@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:

     Semiannually, 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 that
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
that 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 2005 regulatory flexibility agenda is
set forth below.

Issued in Washington, DC on April 1, 2005, by the Commission.

 Jean A. Webb,

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 that
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) that lists rules
that the Commission is considering or will consider in the near future.

NOTICES UNDER THE GRAMM-LEACH-BLILEY ACT

Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant. Major status under 5 USC 801 is
undetermined.

Legal Authority: 7 USC 7b-2; 7 USC 12a(5); 15 USC 6801 et seq

CFR Citation: 17 CFR 160

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: Subtitle A of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLB Act), captioned
Disclosure of Nonpublic Personal Information (15 U.S.C. 6801 et seq.),
requires each financial institution to provide a notice of its privacy
policies and practices to its consumer customers. In general, the
privacy notices must describe a financial institution's policies and
practices with respect to disclosing nonpublic personal information
about a consumer to both affiliated and nonaffiliated third parties,
and provide a consumer a reasonable opportunity to direct the
institution not to share nonpublic personal information about the
consumer with nonaffiliated third parties. The GLB Act agencies,
including CFTC, have published substantially identical regulations to
implement GLB title V, known collectively as the ``privacy rule.'' Many
notices issued under the privacy rule

[[Page 27838]]

were long and complex, and difficult to compare with each other.
Consequently, GLB Act agencies are considering whether to amend the
privacy rule to provide for simpler, more useful notices. The GLB Act
agencies intend to issue an advance notice of proposed rulemaking to
determine whether to propose changes to the privacy rule, and if so,
will seek further public comment on specific programs. Six of the eight
GLB Act agencies have entered into a memorandum of understanding
through which they intend to contract with a consumer testing firm.
CFTC is not a party to the MOU.

Commission's capital requirements by reducing from 20 percent to six
percent the capital charge that futures commission merchants and
introducing brokers are required to deduct from the market value of
uncovered forward contracts denominated in the following foreign
currencies: British pounds, Canadian dollars, Japanese yen, Swiss
francs, or the Euro. Uncovered forwards in other non-U.S. currencies
would remain subject to the 20 percent capital charge currently set
forth in the Commission's regulations.

Abstract: Since the Commission originally promulgated Regulation 1.38,
the Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000 (CFMA) was signed into
law. The CFMA, among other things, specifically expanded the allowable
transactions that could be executed off the centralized market. The
Commission has proposed amendments to its rules concerning trading off
the centralized market, including the addition of guidance on contract
market block trading rules, in light of further administrative
experience with, and consideration of, the implications of the CFMA.
