CFTC Whistleblower Provisions
February 3, 2011

In the comment letter, SIFMA and the FIA:

  • believe that the Proposed Rules "do not go far enough to protect the critical role played by internal compliance reporting systems, and therefore weaken the overall system of prevention and detection;"
  • agree with the CFTC’s proposal "to require individuals in legal, supervisory and other control functions to escalate potential violations through internal reporting lines;" and
  • urge the CFTC to "harmonize its whistleblower rules with the efforts of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) to encourage cooperation in enforcement matters."
