The Commodity Futures Trading Commission will vote Oct. 1 on new rules for derivatives clearinghouses and a reporting deadline for outstanding swaps trades, CFTC Chairman Gary Gensler told the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Tuesday.  The new rules would also apply to exchanges and swap trading platforms.

The Dodd-Frank financial reform bill gives the CFTC 360 days to meet new rules for transparency, so the Commission has 30 teams drafting new regulations and working with the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Federal Reserve, Gensler said. The CFTC has also met personally with more than 100 market participants in the past two months and continues to be open to hearing industry input, he said.
