Date: 2011-09-26
Agency: Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (``Commission'') is adopting a new rule, which establishes a Commission certification procedure applicable to the offer or sale, to persons in the U.S., of a non-narrow-based security index futures contract traded on a foreign board of trade; the new certification procedure will replace the existing staff no-action process. Additionally, the new rule establishes a procedure for a foreign board of trade to request and receive a Commission certification on an expedited basis. Under this expedited procedure, a non-narrow-based security index futures contract of qualifying foreign boards of trade could be offered or sold in the U.S. forty-five (45) days after submission of such request, absent a notification by the Commission.
