Document Number: E7-14103
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-07-20
Agency: Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission is proposing to amend the procedures for confidential treatment requests by derivatives transaction execution facilities (DTEF), derivatives clearing organizations (DCO), or designated contract markets (DCM) for products and rules submitted via certification procedures or for Commission review and approval. The proposed rules will provide the exclusive means of requesting confidential treatment for product and rule submissions filed under Parts 40 and 41 of the Commission's regulations. Specifically, DCMs, DTEFs, and DCOs will be required to follow the customary procedures of requesting confidential treatment of information submitted to the Commission except: The submitter also will be required to file a detailed written justification simultaneously with the request for confidential treatment; and the submitter will be required to segregate the material deemed confidential in an appendix to the submission. Additionally, Commission staff may make an initial determination to grant or deny confidential treatment to such material before receiving a request under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The Commission is proposing these amendments to expedite the confidential treatment review process and consequently allow the Commission to provide the public with more immediate access to non- confidential information.

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (``Commission'' or ``CFTC'') has amended Commission Regulation 3.10 to require certain registered intermediaries, i.e., futures commission merchants (``FCMs''), introducing brokers (``IBs''), commodity pool operators (``CPOs''), commodity trading advisors (``CTAs'') and leverage transaction merchants (``LTMs''), to complete an online annual review of their registration information maintained with the National Futures Association (``NFA''). This amendment is intended to ensure that NFA will have accurate and current information about such registrants. The Commission also has made a technical and conforming amendment to Commission Regulation 3.33(f) in order to remove an unnecessary reference to Regulation 3.10(d).
