    CFTC Extends Comment Periods for Swap Rules Amid COVID-19 Outbreak

    April 10, 2020

    CFTC announced that it is extending comment periods for certain ongoing consultations to ease the challenges being faced due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The extensions encompass certain proposed rules for which the comment periods started in January and February of 2020. After consultation with market participants, the CFTC Division of Market Oversight primarily sought to extend the comment periods for proposed rules on position limits and swap-execution facility requirements and real-time reporting requirements. Additionally, extensions were approved to allow the comment periods for all of the proposed rules involving swap reporting requirements to culminate on the same day.

    CFTC is extending comment periods for the proposed rules, as listed in the table below:
