The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 is about to cross President Obama’s desk. Among the many provisions designed to prevent another financial meltdown are tougher regulations for the over-the-counter derivatives market.
The new legislation is intended to impose stringent regulation on the over-the-counter derivatives market.  The legislation contemplates that the new regulatory oversight will be split between the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), both of which are required to coordinate their regulatory activities.  The legislation also attempts to bring more transparency and accountability to the over-the-counter derivatives market by requiring many trades to be centrally cleared and/or exchange traded, imposing capital and margin requirements, requiring reporting for non-cleared trades, and imposing back-office and conduct standards.
