In compliance with Executive Order 13563, “Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review,” the Commodity Futures Trading Commission has developed a Plan to review its existing regulations to evaluate their continued effectiveness in achieving the objectives for which they were adopted. Under the Plan, after the CFTC has substantially finished promulgating rules under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the CFTC intends to conduct reviews of those regulations not examined in connection with the Dodd-Frank Act, to determine whether any such regulations should be modified or repealed in order to make the CFTC’s regulatory program more effective and less burdensome. The CFTC has requested comments on the Plan by interested parties. Comments must be received by August 29.

The Federal Register release of the CFTC’s request for information regarding the Plan can be found here.
