Washington, DC – The Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s (CFTC) Division of Market Oversight (Division) today issued a letter providing relief from the post-allocation swap timing requirement of § 45.3(e)(ii)(A). The Division’s no-action letter provides extended post-allocation reporting deadlines for swaps that meet certain criteria, provided that specific conditions are met.

The relief expires no later than June 30, 2013.
