CFTC Recordkeeping Rules

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission, or known as CFTC, adopted new amendments to Regulation 1.31, which are recordkeeping obligations.

The new amendments allow most categories of required records to be stored on either micrographic or electronic storage media for a five-year maintenance period in order to match the procedures for firms regulated by the CFTC and the SEC.

The content channels expected to be in compliance include: email, instant messaging, social media, text/SMS, audio, video, website and blogs. The regulated regions are North America and the United States.
