On January 15 2016 the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) Division of Market Oversight extended no-action relief originally provided in CFTC Letter 13-41, which was issued on June 28 2013.
In relation to required reports in light of privacy, secrecy and blocking laws in certain jurisdictions, CFTC Letter 13-41 permits:
The CFTC previously extended this relief through CFTC Letter 15-01 and is now further extending relief, subject to certain conditions, until the earlier of March 1 2017 or the date on which the reporting party no longer holds the requisite reasonable belief that privacy law bars reporting.
The press release is available at www.cftc.gov/PressRoom/PressReleases/pr7310-16.
