CFTC RIN: 3038-AE20 Publication ID: Spring 2016 
Title: Clearing Requirement 

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (Commission) would propose to amend regulation 50.4 to expand the swap clearing requirement under section 2(h)(1)(A) of the Commodity Exchange Act (CEA), which was enacted under title VII of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010.  The proposal would require certain swaps to be cleared either by a Commission-registered derivatives clearing organization (DCO) or a DCO that is exempt from registration under the CEA.  The Commission believes that an expansion of the clearing requirement would be warranted pursuant to the five factors described in section 2(h)(2)(D) of the CEA and that the benefits of such a clearing requirement would include reducing counterparty credit risk and systemic risk.
