CFTC Staff Public Roundtable to Discuss the “Available to Trade” Provision for Swap Execution Facilities and Designated Contract Markets

Staff of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) will hold a public roundtable to discuss the proposed regulations to implement the “available to trade” provision of the trade execution requirement set forth in Section 2(h)(8) of the Commodity Exchange Act pursuant to Section 723 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The roundtable will discuss: 1) the filing process under Part 40 of the Commission’s regulations for a designated contract market (DCM) or swap execution facility (SEF) to notify the Commission that it has determined that a swap is “available to trade”; 2) the factors that a DCM or SEF must consider to make an “available to trade” determination; and 3) the meaning and parameters of “economically equivalent swap.” The roundtable will assist the CFTC in the rulemaking process.
