  • The CFTC’s proposal regarding the cross-border application of registration thresholds and external business conduct standards;
  • The CFTC’s and prudential regulators’ treatment of margin in the cross-border context, including in the context of the EU margin rules;
  • The SEC’s rules relating to cross-border matters; and
  • The Fed’s and other banking regulators’ proposed rules regarding the application of special resolution regimes.
