The Commodity Futures Trading Commission has requested comment on rules submitted by the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) that would require the CME’s clearing house to report all creation and continuation data to the CME’s swap data repository and to any counterparty that requests such information.
While these proposed rules are under review, the CFTC has withdrawn several questions from its “Frequently Asked Questions on the Reporting of Cleared Swaps” that relate to matters potentially affected by the proposed rule. For more information on which questions were withdrawn, click here.
More information on the CME’s rules is available here.
