On September 17, 2014, the CFTC re-proposed rules for uncleared swap margin requirements. The CFTC’s re-proposal is largely consistent with a re-proposal on margin, capital and segregation requirements that was jointly issued on September 3, 2014 by the Federal Reserve, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Farm Credit Administration and the Federal Housing Financing Authority (the “Prudential Regulators”) and with the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision’s and the International Organization of Securities Commissions’ (“BCBS/IOSCO”) 2013 final policy framework.
