CFTC to review the self-certification process

North America United States

Following the backlash in repose to the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s approval of the self-certification of Bitcoin derivatives products, the commission will hold two public committee meetings to further discuss the process.

The first meeting of the Technology Advisory Committee (TAC) which will take place on January 23 at the CFTC headquarters in Washington, D.C and will be open to the public – also via a webcast.

Later on, the Market Risk Advisory Committee (MRAC) will gather on January 31 to discuss “the statutory and regulatory process for the listing of new and novel products on CFTC-regulated designated contract markets(DCMs) and swap execution facilities (SEFs) through self-certification.” That meeting will also be open to the public and broadcasted online.
