Just days after the Securities and Exchange Commission adopted an interim rule that required certain swaps dealers and other parties to report any security-based swaps entered into prior to the July 21 passage of the Dodd-Frank Act, the SEC and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) will hold a public roundtable on Friday to discuss issues related to the clearing of credit default swaps.

The agencies say the roundtable will assist them in the rulemaking process to implement the Dodd-Frank Act.

The roundtable will be held at the CFTC’s Washington headquarters. The discussion will be open to the public with seating on a first-come, first-served basis. Members of the public may also listen by telephone at:

  • U.S./Canada Toll-Free: 866-844-9416
  • International Toll: 1-203-369-5026 (Passcode: 8693978)

A transcript of the public roundtable discussion will be published on the CFTC’s website. Members of the public wishing to submit their views on the topics addressed at the roundtable may e-mail their submissions to:

SEC – rule-comments@sec.gov or through the comment form available on the SEC website.

CFTC – DCORules@cftc.gov (all e-mails must reference “Dodd-Frank CDS Roundtable” in the subject field).
