Core Principles and Other Requirements for Swap Execution Facilities

SUMMARY

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (``Commission'' or ``CFTC'') is adopting new rules, guidance, and acceptable practices to implement certain statutory provisions enacted by Title VII of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (``Dodd-Frank Act''). The final rules, guidance, and acceptable practices, which apply to the registration and operation of a new type of regulated entity named a swap execution facility (``SEF''), implement the Dodd- Frank Act's new statutory framework that, among other requirements, adds a new section 5h to the Commodity Exchange Act (``CEA'' or ``Act'') concerning the registration and operation of SEFs, and adds a new section 2(h)(8) to the CEA concerning the execution of swaps on SEFs.
