    • Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“Commission” or “CFTC”) Regulation 45.6 requires that each counterparty to a swap must be identified in all recordkeeping and swap data reporting by means of a single Legal Entity Identifier or “LEI”. The CFTC has designated the “CFTC Interim Compliant Identifier” or “CICI” available at http://www.ciciutility.org as the current required identifier system for swap transactions.  [Please note that this requirement does not apply to futures, including block futures, transactions. In addition, this requirement does not at this time apply to natural persons and non-US persons.]
