COMMODITY FUTURES TRADING COMMISSION

17 CFR Ch. I

Regulatory Flexibility Agenda

AGENCY: Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

ACTION: Publication of regulatory flexibility agenda.

_______________________________________________________________________

SUMMARY: The Commodity Futures Trading Commission, in accordance with 
the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, is publishing a 
semiannual agenda of significant rules which the Commission expects to 
propose or promulgate over the next year. The Commission welcomes 
comments from small entities and others on the agenda.

ADDRESSES: Comments should be sent to: Gerry Smith, Special Assistant 
to the Executive Director, Commodity Futures Trading Commission, 2033 K 
Street NW., Washington, DC 20581, (202) 254-6090.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601 
et seq. (RFA), sets forth a number of requirements for agency 
rulemaking. Among other things, the RFA requires that:

    (a) During the months of April and October of each year, each 
agency shall publish in the Federal Register a regulatory 
flexibility agenda which shall contain:

    (1) A brief description of the subject area of any rule which 
the agency expects to propose or promulgate which is likely to have 
a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities;

    (2) A summary of the nature of any such rule under 
consideration for each subject area listed in the agenda pursuant 
to paragraph (1), the objectives and legal basis for the issuance 
of the rule, and an approximate schedule for completing action on 
any rule for which the agency has issued a general notice of 
proposed rulemaking; and

    (3) The name and telephone number of an agency official 
knowledgeable concerning the items listed in paragraph (1).

5 U.S.C. 602(a). The Commission has prepared an agenda of significant 
rules which it presently expects may be considered during the course of 
the next year, irrespective of their potential impact on small 
entities.<SUP>1


1 The Commission has published its definition of small entity to be 
used by the Commission in connection with rulemaking proceedings. 47 FR 
18618 (April 30, 1982). Pursuant to those definitions, the Commission 
is not required to list many of the agenda items contained in this 
regulatory flexibility agenda. See 5 U.S.C. 602(a)(1). Moreover, the 
Commission has previously certified, pursuant to section 605 of the 
RFA, 5 U.S.C. 605, that certain items contained in this agenda will not 
have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities. Accordingly, listing of a rule in this regulatory flexibility 
agenda should not in any event be taken as a determination that a rule, 
when proposed or promulgated, will in fact require a regulatory 
flexibility analysis. However, the Commission hopes that the 
publication of an agenda, which includes significant rules, regardless 
of their potential impact on small entities, may serve the public 
generally by providing an early and meaningful opportunity to 
participate in and comment on the formulation of new or revised 
regulations.

    The Commission's agenda represents its best estimate of 
significant rules which will be considered over the next 12 
months.<SUP>2 In this regard, section 602(d) of the RFA, 5 U.S.C. 
602(d), provides: ``Nothing in [section 602] precludes an agency 
from considering or acting on any matter not included in a 
regulatory flexibility agenda or requires an agency to consider or 
act on any matter listed in such agenda.''


<SUP>2 In addition to publishing the regulatory flexibility agenda, the 
Commission also makes available to the public, on a monthly basis, a 
calendar and, on a weekly basis, an advisory, which lists rules that 
the Commission is considering or will consider in the near future.

    For this edition of the Commission's regulatory agenda, the 
most important significant regulatory actions are included in The 
Regulatory Plan, which appears in Part II of this issue of the 
Federal Register. The Regulatory Plan entries are listed in the 
Table of Contents below and are denoted by a bracketed bold 
reference, which directs the reader to the appropriate Sequence 
Number in Part II.

    The Commission's October 1994 regulatory flexibility agenda is 
set forth below.

Issued in Washington, DC, on August 11, 1994, by the Commission.

Jean A. Webb,

Secretary of the Commission.
