Key Takeaways:

  • The CFTC has designated DTCC-SWIFT as the operator of an interim legal entity identifier system to be used in compliance of swap data reporting requirements.
  • Until a global legal entity identifier system is fully operational, all swap counterparties will use a CFTC Interim Compliant Identifier (CICI).
  • All swap counterparties will need to obtain a CICI or have a CICI assigned to them even when they are not subject to swap data reporting requirements.
