CFTC response to ISDA’s proposed STP plan

On December 21, 2015, the CFTC responded in agreement with ISDA’s proposal to permit derivatives clearing organizations (DCOs) to accept or reject trades for clearing within 10 minutes of execution on a SEF or a DCM and granted until August 1, 2016 for compliance with the requirement. Furthermore, CFTC staff still expect that the industry will continue to reduce the timeframes for transaction processing and will monitor the industry and may take further action as warranted.
