The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (``Commission'' or ``CFTC'') has amended its regulations to require that all persons registered with the Commission as futures commission merchants (``FCMs''), subject to an exception for certain notice-registered securities brokers or dealers (``BDs''), must become and remain members of at least one registered futures association (``RFA''). This action is consistent with the regulatory philosophy underlying the Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000 (``CFMA'').
