Renewal of the Global Markets Advisory Committee

AGENCY: Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

ACTION: Notice of Global Markets Advisory Committee renewal.


SUMMARY: The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (Commission) is
publishing this notice to announce the renewal of the Global Markets
Advisory Committee (GMAC). The Commission has determined that the
renewal of the GMAC is necessary and in the public's interest, and the
Commission has consulted with the General Services Administration's
Committee Management Secretariat regarding the GMAC's renewal.

Federal Officer, at 202-418-5167 or [email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The GMAC's objectives and scope of
activities are to conduct public meetings, and to submit reports and
recommendations on matters of public concern to the exchanges, firms,
market users, and the Commission regarding the regulatory challenges of
a global marketplace, which reflect the increasing interconnectedness
of markets and the multinational nature of business. The GMAC will help
the Commission determine how it can avoid unnecessary regulatory or
operational impediments to global business while still preserving core
protections for customers and other market participants. The GMAC will
also make recommendations for appropriate international standards for
regulating futures, swaps, options, and derivatives markets, as well as
intermediaries. Additionally, the GMAC will assist the Commission in
assessing the impact on U.S. markets and firms of the Commission's
international efforts and the initiatives of foreign regulators and
market authorities. The GMAC will also assist with identifying methods
to improve both domestic and international regulatory structures while
continuing to allow U.S. markets and firms to remain competitive in the
global market.
    The GMAC will operate for two years from the date of renewal unless
the Commission directs that the GMAC terminate on an earlier date. A
copy of the GMAC renewal charter has been filed with the Commission;
the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry; the House
Committee on Agriculture; the Library of Congress; and the General
Services Administration's Committee Management Secretariat. A copy of
the renewal charter will be posted on the Commission's website at

    Dated: September 10, 2018.
Robert Sidman,
Deputy Secretary of the Commission.
