Regulatory Outreach Program


In 2010, CME Group launched its Regulatory Outreach Program to provide market participants with the information and resources necessary to meet their compliance needs. Our goal is to work with market participants proactively to ensure they understand our regulatory requirements and thereby avoid potential problems down the road. The program aims to:

  • Effectively communicate rule modifications, rule advisories and other rules-based information to market participants
  • Promote a uniform understanding of exchange rules and regulations
  • Serve as a resource for trade practice and surveillance based questions
  • Build constructive, ongoing relationships with industry participants

Use the Resource

Outreach is available for industry veterans and new industry participants alike, from individual traders to firms. Our Outreach team is available by phone or email for compliance questions, or to schedule personalized sessions tailored to suit your needs. Proactive compliance and more informed customers make better markets. Use the Resource. We are here to help.
