The National Futures Association (NFA) has proposed an amendment to NFA Compliance Rule 2-46 that would add a late filing fee of $200 for each business day that NFA Form PQR or Form PR is filed after the applicable deadline. NFA Form PQR and Form PR are required to be filed with the NFA on a quarterly basis by registered Commodity Pool Operators (CPOs) or Commodity Trading Advisors, respectively. For late NFA Form PQRs, the fee will apply at the CPO level and will not be assessed separately for each pool operated by the CPO that has a late filing.

The NFA intends to make the proposed amendment effective ten days after May 31, 2016, unless the Commodity Futures Trading Commission notifies the NFA that it has determined to review the proposals for approval.
