Renewal of the Global Markets Advisory Committee

AGENCY: Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

ACTION: Notice of 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 202-418-6624 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, other market participants, 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 11, 2020.
Christopher Kirkpatrick,
Secretary of the Commission.
