SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On November 6, 2018, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“Commission”) approved a request for public comment regarding the practice Start Printed Page 3351of “post-trade name give-up” on swap execution facilities (the “Name Give-Up Request for Comment”). The Name Give-Up Request for Comment was published in the Federal Register on November 30, 2018, with a 60-day comment period closing on January 29, 2019 (83 FR 61571). On November 6, 2018, the Commission also approved a notice of proposed rulemaking regarding swap execution facilities and the trade execution requirement (the “SEF NPRM”). Like the Name Give-Up Request for Comment, the SEF NPRM was published in the Federal Register on November 30, 2018 (83 FR 61946). However, the SEF NPRM was published with a 75-day comment period that is scheduled to conclude on February 13, 2019. By a separate Federal Register release also published today, the Commission has determined to extend the comment period for the SEF NPRM until March 15, 2019. The Commission anticipates that there will be a large degree of overlap between the group of commenters on the SEF NPRM and the group of commenters on the Name Give-Up Request for Comment, as well as certain overlaps in the issues raised by the two matters. In light of these factors, the Commission believes that it would be sensible for the comment periods for the two matters to conclude on the same date. Accordingly, the comment period for the Name Give-Up Request for Comment is open through March 15, 2019.

Start Signature

Issued in Washington, DC, on February 5, 2019, by the Commission.

Deputy Secretary of the Commission.
