In this regard, NFA shall also implement such additional procedures (or modify existing procedures) as are acceptable to the Commission and as are necessary: to ensure the security and integrity of the records in NFA’s custody; to facilitate prompt access to those records by the Commission and its staff, particularly as described in other Commission Orders or regulations; to facilitate disclosure of public or nonpublic information in those records when permitted by Commission Orders or regulations and to keep logs as required by the Commission concerning disclosure of nonpublic information; and otherwise to safeguard the confidentiality of the records consistent with Section 8 of the Act and the Commission’s regulations issued thereunder. srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES II. Conclusion and Order The Commission has determined, in accordance with the provisions of Sections 8a(10) and 17(o)(1) of the Act, to authorize NFA to perform the following functions: (1) To process notices of claim under Regulation 4.12(c) for exemption from compliance with certain Part 4 requirements, filed under Regulation 4.12(d) by the registered CPOs of Commodity ETFs; (2) To process notices of exemption pursuant to Regulation 4.13(a)(5) from registration as a CPO, filed under Regulation 4.13(b) by independent directors or trustees of Commodity ETFs; and (3) To maintain and to serve as the official custodian of records for the notices required by the regulations listed above. NFA shall perform these functions in accordance with the standards established by the Act and Commission Orders and regulations promulgated thereunder, particularly Part 4 of the regulations and Commission Orders issued thereunder, and shall provide the Commission with such summaries and periodic reports as the Commission may determine are necessary for effective oversight of the functions delegated hereby. These determinations are based upon the Congressional intent expressed in Sections 8a(10) and 17(o) of the Act that the Commission have the authority to delegate to NFA any portion of the Commission’s registration responsibilities under the Act for purposes of carrying out these VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:31 May 17, 2011 Jkt 223001 responsibilities in the most efficient and cost-effective manner.10 This Order does not, however, authorize NFA to render ‘‘no-action’’ positions, exemptions or interpretations with respect to applicable CPO disclosure, reporting, recordkeeping and registration requirements. Nothing in this Order or in Section 8a(10) or 17(o) of the Act shall affect the Commission’s authority to review NFA’s performance of Commission functions listed in items (1) through (3) of Section II of this Order. NFA is authorized to perform all functions specified herein until such time as the Commission orders otherwise. Nothing in this Order shall prevent the Commission from exercising the authority delegated herein. NFA may submit to the Commission for decision any specific matters that have been delegated to it, and Commission staff will be available to discuss with NFA staff issues relating to the implementation of this Order. Nothing in this Order affects the applicability of any previous Orders issued by the Commission concerning Part 4. III. Cost-Benefit Analysis Section 15(a) of the Act 11 requires the Commission to consider the costs and benefits of its actions before promulgating regulations under the Act or issuing certain orders. By its terms, section 15(a) does not require the Commission to quantify the costs and benefits of a regulation or order, or to determine whether the benefits of the regulation or order outweigh its costs; rather, it requires that the Commission ‘‘consider’’ the costs and benefits of its actions. Section 15(a) further specifies that the costs and benefits shall be evaluated in light of five broad areas of market and public concern: (1) Protection of market participants and the public; (2) efficiency, competitiveness and financial integrity of futures markets; (3) price discovery; (4) sound risk management practices; and (5) other public interest considerations. The Commission may in its discretion give greater weight to any one of the five enumerated areas and could in its discretion determine that, notwithstanding its costs, a particular rule is necessary or appropriate to protect the public interest or to 10 See also, Section 125 of the Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000, Public Law 106–554, 114 Stat. 2763, enacted December 21, 2000, which directed the Commission to report to Congress identifying, among other things, ‘‘the regulatory functions the Commission currently performs that can be delegated to a registered futures association.’’ 11 7 U.S.C. 19(a) (2006). PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 effectuate any of the provisions or accomplish any of the purposes of the Act. Summary of proposed requirements. The Order would delegate to NFA the responsibility to process notices submitted by persons seeking to claim exemption under new provisions of Regulations 4.12 and 4.13, and to maintain and serve as the official custodian of those notices. Costs. With respect to costs, the Commission has determined that there will be no costs to members of the public or persons subject to Commission regulation. Any costs to NFA will be insignificant, inasmuch as NFA is already responsible for performing the same processing functions with respect to existing provisions of the same regulations, and it has procedures in place to readily accommodate the notices to be submitted with respect to Regulations 4.12(c) and 4.13(a)(5). Benefits. With respect to benefits, the Commission has determined that persons claiming exemption under new Regulations 4.12(c) and 4.13(a)(5) will be able to use the same procedure that is currently used for the other exemptive provisions of Part 4, and the Commission will not be required to devote any resources to performing functions that NFA is already performing. Issued in Washington, DC, on May 5, 2011 by the Commission. David A. Stawick, Secretary of the Commission.
