Dodd-Frank Act: Are You Ready?

01:00 PM - 02:30 PM Eastern Daylight Time

Please join us for a webinar analyzing how energy industry market participants may be impacted by the Dodd-Frank Act's regulatory obligations and what companies can do to comply.

Deadlines to comply with new CFTC rules - which define "swap," "swap dealer," and "major swap participant" - are quickly approaching, beginning with an October 12 deadline for registration as a swap dealer or as a major swap participant. These rules, as well as other CFTC implementing regulations relating to the Dodd-Frank Act, will impact energy industry market participants in varying degrees.

During our webinar, we will discuss the following:

  • What the CFTC considers to be a swap (and why it matters)
  • What it means to be a swap dealer or a major swap participant
  • How to analyze whether you are a swap dealer or a major swap participant
  • How to apply the CFTC's final rule on position limits
  • What it means to be an "end-user"
  • How to determine whether you are an "end-user"
  • Applicable compliance deadlines
