As the Dodd Frank regulations have materialized, the FERC and the CFTC continue to sort out their jurisdictional reach, and the industry finds itself faced with CFTC’s new rules and final product definitions, companies have been left struggling with questions on how to comply with regulations in a post-Dodd Frank world. Increased enforcement efforts coupled with congressionally-sanctioned penalties makes regulatory compliance more important than ever. ACI’s Energy Trading Compliance & Regulatory Enforcement forum will directly address the most pressing compliance issues and regulatory initiatives that companies and their outside counsel need to be aware of. This program is designed to offer insights into pending rules and enforcement programs by the energy regulatory bodies, and explain the impact of increased federal scrutiny on the energy trading practice.
