SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with the Federal Advisory 
Committee Act (FACA), 5 U.S. C. App. II, the Commission is publishing 
this notice to announce the reestablishment of the GMAC. The Commission 
has determined that the reestablishment of the GMAC is necessary and in 
the public interest. The objectives and scope of activities of the GMAC 
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. 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 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 identify 
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's objectives and activities 
will allow the Commission to better promote its mission of protecting 
market users and the public from abusive practices, and help to foster 
open, competitive, and financially sound futures and options markets. 
Meetings of the GMAC are open to the public.
    The GMAC will operate for two years from the date of 
reestablishment unless, before the expiration of that time period, its 
charter is renewed in accordance with section 14(b)(1) of the FACA, or 
the Commission directs that the GMAC terminate on an earlier date. A 
copy of the GMAC reestablishment charter will be 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 reestablishment charter will be posted on 
the Commission's Web site at www.cftc.gov.

    Issued in Washington, DC, on September 4, 2014, by the 
Christopher J. Kirkpatrick,
Secretary of the Commission.
