CFTC – Swap Data Recordkeeping and Reporting Requirements

November 25, 2020 – The CFTC is amending certain regulations setting forth the swap data recordkeeping and reporting requirements for swap data repositories (SDRs), derivatives clearing organizations (DCOs), swap execution facilities (SEFs), designated contract markets (DCMs), swap dealers (SDs), major swap participants (MSPs), and swap counterparties that are neither SDs nor MSPs. The amendments, among other things, streamline the requirements for reporting new swaps, define and adopt swap data elements that harmonize with international technical guidance, and reduce reporting burdens for reporting counterparties that are neither SDs nor MSPs.

Effective Date:

The effective date for this final rule is January 25, 2021.

Compliance Date:

SDRs, SEFs, DCMs, reporting counterparties, and non-reporting counterparties must comply with the amendments to the rules by May 25, 2022.
