The Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s Division of Market Oversight has issued a guidebook containing additional guidance and detailed instructions for submitting large swap trader reports required by new Part 20 of the CFTC’s rules. Clearing organizations and clearing members were required to begin reporting on cleared swaps on November 21, 2011, and are required to begin reporting on uncleared swaps on January 20, 2012. Fully compliant month-end open interest reports must be collected beginning in September 2011 through February 2012 and submitted to the CFTC by March 20, 2012.

The Guidebook for Part 20 Reports is available here.
