Regulatory Reminder to CPOs of Quarterly Reporting Requirements
In March 2010, NFA Compliance Rule 2-46 became effective. Rule 2-46 requires each CPO Member to report quarterly to NFA specific information on each pool that it operates (for which it has a reporting requirement under CFTC Regulation 4.22). The reports are due within 45 days after the end of the quarterly reporting period. NFA adopted this quarterly reporting requirement in order to regularly obtain certain performance and operational data that NFA staff utilizes to assess risks and identify trends related to Member CPOs.
Obviously, if a Member CPO does not file this report within the specified time frame, then the value of the report to NFA diminishes since the information becomes less useful as it ages. Beginning with the June 30, 2011 report, which is due on Monday, August 15, 2011, NFA will review the filing history of any CPO Member that files the report after its due date and determine whether disciplinary action is appropriate.
All Member CPOs with reporting requirements under Compliance Rule 2-46 must be aware of the filing deadlines for these quarterly reports on an ongoing basis and ensure that these quarterly reports are filed in a timely manner. NFA staff remains available to assist CPO Members in meeting this filing requirement. Anyone needing additional information regarding these quarterly reports should contact Tracey Hunt at (312) 781-1284.
