|Provide global technical assistance.|
The CFTC provides technical assistance to emerging and recently-emerged markets to assist these jurisdictions in establishing and implementing laws and regulations that minimize the likelihood of regulatory arbitrage and promote cross-border enforcement and supervisory assistance. The passage of the Dodd-Frank Act is likely to increase the number of requests for technical assistance in developing OTC policies.
The CFTC will continue to provide technical assistance to foreign regulators in a wide variety of subject areas. Such technical assistance may take various forms, including targeted programs in specific areas of concern, such as enforcement training and oversight of the OTC market.
