CFTC Announces Public Roundtable to Discuss Dodd-Frank End-User Issues

The CFTC will hold a public roundtable on April 3, 2014, to discuss issues concerning end users and the Dodd-Frank Act.

The roundtable will consist of three panels discussing:

  • the obligations of end users under CFTC Rule 1.35 (“Records of Commodity, Interest and Related Cash or Forward Transactions”) concerning recordkeeping for commodity interest and related cash or forward transactions;
  • the appropriate regulatory treatment of forward contracts with embedded volumetric optionality; and
  • the appropriate regulatory treatment for purposes of the $25 million (special entity) de minimis threshold for swap dealing to government-owned electric utilities.
