On November 30, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s (CFTC) Division of Market Oversight extended previously provided no-action relief for swap execution facilities (SEF) from certain timing requirements to file fourth-quarter financial reports and annual compliance reports. The no-action relief extends from 60 days to 90 days the time within which a SEF must file its fourth quarter annual report and a SEF Chief Compliance Officer (CCO) must file the CCO’s annual compliance report.

The no-action relief will now expire on November 30, 2021, unless the CFTC provides a permanent extension or takes other action.
