15 U.S. Code § 8341 - Authority to further define terms

prev | next
The Securities and Exchange Commission may, by rule, further define—
(1) the term “commercial risk”;
(2) any other term included in an amendment to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934  [1] (15 U.S.C. 78c (a)) made by this subtitle; and
(3) the terms “security-based swap”, “security-based swap dealer”, “major security-based swap participant”, and “eligible contract participant”, with regard to security-based swaps (as such terms are defined in the amendments made by subsection (a)) for the purpose of including transactions and entities that have been structured to evade this subtitle or the amendments made by this subtitle.

[1]  So in original. Probably should be “section 3(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934”.


(Pub. L. 111–203, title VII, § 761(b),July 21, 2010, 124 Stat. 1759.)
