Post-Trade Name Give-Up on Swap Execution Facilities

AGENCY: Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

ACTION: Extension of comment period.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY:  The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (``Commission'') is
extending the comment period for a request for public comment regarding
the practice of ``post-trade name give-up'' on swap execution
facilities (the ``Name Give-Up Request for Comment'') that published
November 30, 2018 in the Federal Register.

DATES: The comment period for the Name Give-Up Request for Comment is
extended until March 15, 2019.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments, identified by ``Post-Trade Name
Give-Up on Swap Execution Facilities'' and RIN 3038-AE79, by any of the
following methods:
     The agency's website: http://comments.cftc.gov. Follow the
instructions for submitting comments.
     Mail: Secretary of the Commission, Commodity Futures
Trading Commission, Three Lafayette Centre, 1155 21st Street NW,
Washington, DC 20581.
     Hand Delivery/Courier: Same as Mail above.
    All comments must be submitted in English, or if not, accompanied
by an English translation. Comments will be posted as received to
www.cftc.gov. You should submit only information that you wish to make
available publicly. If you wish the Commission to consider information
that you believe is exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of
Information Act, a petition for confidential treatment of the exempt
information may be submitted according to the procedures established
under 17 CFR 145.9.
    The Commission reserves the right, but shall have no obligation, to
review, pre-screen, filter, redact, refuse or remove any or all
submissions from http://www.cftc.gov that it may deem to be
inappropriate for publication, such as obscene language. All
submissions that have been redacted or removed that contain comments on
the merits of the rulemaking will be retained in the public comment
file and will be considered as required under the Administrative
Procedure Act and other applicable laws, and may be accessible under
the Freedom of Information Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On November 6, 2018, the Commodity Futures
Trading Commission (``Commission'') approved a request for public
comment regarding the practice

[[Page 3351]]

of ``post-trade name give-up'' on swap execution facilities (the ``Name
Give-Up Request for Comment''). The Name Give-Up Request for Comment
was published in the Federal Register on November 30, 2018, with a 60-
day comment period closing on January 29, 2019 (83 FR 61571). On
November 6, 2018, the Commission also approved a notice of proposed
rulemaking regarding swap execution facilities and the trade execution
requirement (the ``SEF NPRM''). Like the Name Give-Up Request for
Comment, the SEF NPRM was published in the Federal Register on November
30, 2018 (83 FR 61946). However, the SEF NPRM was published with a 75-
day comment period that is scheduled to conclude on February 13, 2019.
By a separate Federal Register release also published today, the
Commission has determined to extend the comment period for the SEF NPRM
until March 15, 2019. The Commission anticipates that there will be a
large degree of overlap between the group of commenters on the SEF NPRM
and the group of commenters on the Name Give-Up Request for Comment, as
well as certain overlaps in the issues raised by the two matters. In
light of these factors, the Commission believes that it would be
sensible for the comment periods for the two matters to conclude on the
same date. Accordingly, the comment period for the Name Give-Up Request
for Comment is open through March 15, 2019.

    Issued in Washington, DC, on February 5, 2019, by the
Commission.
Robert Sidman,
Deputy Secretary of the Commission.
