Agency: Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (the ``Commission'') is proposing to amend part 13 of its regulations to eliminate the provisions that set forth the procedure for the formulation, amendment, or repeal of rules or regulations. Because the Administrative Procedure Act (``APA'') governs the Commission's rulemaking process, the Commission believes that it is unnecessary to codify the rulemaking process in a Commission regulation. Part 13, as amended, will be comprised solely of the procedure for filing petitions for rulemakings as the APA does not address this process.

The modification will add two routine uses, clarify existing routine uses, and bring the SORN in compliance with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A- 108 SORN template. The two new routine uses pertain to sharing information to mitigate a breach and are required by OMB Memorandum 17- 12. Other updates include identifying the specific routine uses applicable to the system of records rather than relying on CFTC's previously published blanket routine uses, and administrative updates to comply with the OMB Circular A-108 SORN template format.
