The Division of Swap Dealer and Intermediary Oversight of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, or CFTC, announced that certain banking entities subject to Appendix B of Part 75 of the Commission’s regulations should submit their CEO attestations through the following email address: VolckerAttestation@cftc.gov.
Part 75 of the CFTC’s regulations implements section 619 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, commonly referred as the “Volcker Rule.” Regulation 75.20(c) requires that banking entities meeting certain conditions must satisfy the requirements of Appendix B. Appendix B requires, among other things, that a CEO attestation be submitted to the CFTC regarding the banking entity’s Volcker Rule compliance program.
