Specifically, the Commission announced that it wished to address the point at which an FBOT that makes its products available for trading in the U.S. by permitting direct access to its electronic trading system from the U.S. (direct access) is no longer ‘‘located outside the U.S.’’ for purposes of Section 4(a) of the Commodity Exchange Act (Act). Comments on the subject were originally due on July 12, 2006.

The Commission recognizes the complexity of the issues and the diversity of interests in this matter and is, accordingly, extending the comment period to August 1, 2006.
