Derivatives Clearing Organization General Provisions and Core Principles
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (Commission) is proposing amendments to certain regulations applicable to registered derivatives clearing organizations (DCOs). These proposed amendments would, among other things, address certain risk management and reporting obligations, clarify the meaning of certain provisions, simplify processes for registration and reporting, and codify existing staff relief and guidance. In addition, the Commission is proposing technical amendments to certain provisions, including certain delegation provisions, in other parts of its regulations.
Certain Swap Data Repository and Data Reporting Requirements
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (``Commission'' or ``CFTC'') is proposing amendments to parts 23, 43, 45, and 49 of the Commission's regulations to improve the accuracy of data reported to, and maintained by, swap data repositories (``SDRs''). Among other changes, the proposed amendments would modify existing requirements for SDRs to establish policies and procedures to confirm the accuracy of swap data with both counterparties to a swap. The proposed amendments would further require reporting counterparties to verify the accuracy of swap data pursuant to those SDR procedures. The Commission is also proposing certain amendments to parts 23, 43, 45, and 49 to provide enhanced and streamlined oversight over SDRs and data reporting generally.
