CFTC Staff to Host a Public Roundtable on CPMI-IOSCO Guidance on CCP Resilience & Recovery

Washington, DC — Staff of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) will hold a public roundtable on October 6, 2016, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., to discuss the recent CPMI-IOSCO guidance on central counterparty (CCP) resilience and recovery.

The goal of the roundtable is to gather the perspective of different stakeholder groups, on a detailed and technical level, regarding the impact this guidance will have in the context of U.S. Derivatives Clearing Organizations (DCOs). The roundtable will include panelists from U.S. DCOs, their clearing members (futures commission merchants or FCMs), and the customers of their participants and others.

The full title of the guidance, issued August 16, 2016, is CPMI-IOSCO Consultative Report on Resilience and Recovery of Central Counterparties (CCPs): Further Guidance on the PFMI. It is available at CPMI-IOSCO Consultative Report.

The roundtable will be held in the Conference Center at CFTC's headquarters at Three Lafayette Centre, 1155 21st Street NW, Washington, DC.
