Help CFTC Simplify Its Rules

May 11, 2017

The CFTC seeks public input on simplifying and modernizing its rules - part of Project KISS, an internal review that began in March. CFTC Acting Chair Christopher Giancarlo named Chief of Staff Michael Gill as CFTC’s Regulatory Reform Officer, and he has been leading Project KISS and the work of the taskforce within the agency. 


Mr. Giancarlo cautions that this exercise is not about identifying existing rules for repeal or even rewrite. It's about taking CFTC’s existing rules as they are and applying them in ways that are simpler, less burdensome and less of a drag on the American economy.

FYI - Donald Trump's 2/24/17 executive order directing federal agencies to designate a Regulatory Reform Officer and establish a Regulatory Reform Task Force does not directly cover the CFTC, Mr. Giancarlo said the agency will nonetheless review all its rules with the ultimate goal of reducing regulatory burdens and costs for participants in the markets the agency oversees.
