On Friday, just ahead of the expiration of the CFTC’s exemptive order delaying the applicability of some CFTC swap regulations for non-U.S. swap dealers and foreign branches of U.S. swap dealers, the CFTC issued a press release and summary table announcing comparability determinations that will allow non-U.S. swap dealers and foreign branches of U.S. swap dealers to comply with local law instead of CFTC requirements in cases where substituted compliance is available under the CFTC’s cross-border guidance.
