Today, the CFTC entered the final rules for swap execution facilities into the Federal Register. They will become effective August 5, 2013.

Last month, the Commission’s five members – three Democrats and two Republicans – voted 4-1 in favor of the new rules. The final version of the new standards will bring bilateral trading to an end, and transfer trades to centralized, transparent marketplaces.
