The following are only the Rules published in the Federal Register after the published date of Title 17.
For a complete list of all Rules, Proposed Rules, and Notices view the Rulemaking tab.
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“Commission” or “CFTC”) is issuing a final rule to repeal and replace the Commission's current regulations concerning commodity options. The Commission is also issuing an interim final rule (with a request for additional comment) that incorporates a trade option exemption into the final rules for commodity options (added § 32.3). For a transaction to be within the trade option exemption, the option, the offeror (seller), and the offeree (buyer), as applicable, must satisfy certain eligibility requirements, including that the option, if exercised, be physically settled, that the option seller meet certain eligibility requirements, and that the option buyer be a commercial user of the commodity underlying the option, and certain other regulatory conditions. Only comments pertaining to the interim final rule will be considered in any further action related to these rules.
This is a list of United States Code sections, Statutes at Large, Public Laws, and Presidential Documents, which provide rulemaking authority for this CFR Part.
