EU and US announce regulatory cooperation on SEFs and MTFs

24 February 2014  |  1104 views  |  0

The European Commission has released a statement announcing that the United States Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and the European Commission have made significant progress towards a harmonised regulatory framework for CFTC-regulated swap execution facilities (SEFs) and EU-regulated multilateral trading facilities (MTFs). 

As a result of this dialogue the CFTC has issued two no-action letters providing relief to certain EU-regulated MTFs.  The conditions in the no action letter are based on the MTF meeting certain reporting and clearing-related requirements and some other conditions.  The CFTC has also issued a conditional Short-Term No Action Letter to provide limited relief for all registered MTFs until 24 March 2014.
