SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On July 19, 2010, the Commission published for public comment a NPRM, where it proposed to collect certain ownership and control information via an account “Ownership and Control Report” submitted weekly by all U.S. futures exchanges and other reporting entities. The NPRM established a 60-day period for submitting public comment, ending September 17, 2010. On September 16, 2010, Commission staff intends to hold a public roundtable meeting at which invited participants will discuss issues arising from the Commission's NPRM. Shortly after the public roundtable meeting, a transcript of the meeting will be published on the Commission's Account Ownership and Control Report public comment page at http://www.cftc.gov/​LawRegulation/​PublicComments/​10-009.html. In order to give interested parties time to prepare comments on matters that were discussed at the public roundtable meeting, the Commission has determined to extend the comment period for the NPRM by an additional twenty days to October 7, 2010.
