Amended Order Designating the Provider of Legal Entity Identifiers to Be Used in Recordkeeping and Swap Data Reporting Pursuant to the Commission's Regulations
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has issued an Amended Order expanding, through mutual acceptance by international regulators, the list of Legal Entity Identifiers (LEIs) that can be used by registered entities and swap counterparties in complying with CFTC's swap data reporting regulations once the conditions provided in the Amended Order are fulfilled. The Amended Order revises CFTC's order of July 23, 2012, which directed all registered entities and swap counterparties required by CFTC rules to use LEIs in swap recordkeeping and swap data reporting to use LEIs provided by DTCC-SWIFT, the utility designated by the CFTC as the provider of LEIs until establishment of the global LEI system.

Process for a Designated Contract Market or Swap Execution Facility To Make a Swap Available to Trade, Swap Transaction Compliance and Implementation Schedule, and Trade Execution Requirement Under the Commodity Exchange Act
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (``Commission'') is adopting regulations that establish a process for a designated contract market (``DCM'') or swap execution facility (``SEF'') to make a swap subject to the trade execution requirement pursuant to the Commodity Exchange Act (``CEA''). The Commission is also adopting regulations to establish a schedule to phase in compliance with the trade execution requirement. The schedule will provide additional time for compliance with this requirement.
Core Principles and Other Requirements for Swap Execution Facilities
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (``Commission'' or ``CFTC'') is adopting new rules, guidance, and acceptable practices to implement certain statutory provisions enacted by Title VII of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (``Dodd-Frank Act''). The final rules, guidance, and acceptable practices, which apply to the registration and operation of a new type of regulated entity named a swap execution facility (``SEF''), implement the Dodd- Frank Act's new statutory framework that, among other requirements, adds a new section 5h to the Commodity Exchange Act (``CEA'' or ``Act'') concerning the registration and operation of SEFs, and adds a new section 2(h)(8) to the CEA concerning the execution of swaps on SEFs.
