The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank), signed into law on July 21, 2010, was the largest overhaul of the U.S. derivatives market in history. While there are still a few parts of Dodd-Frank not yet implemented, the majority of the rules and regulations related to Dodd-Frank have been put into effect: many of the largest market makers in swaps are now registered as swap dealers (Swap Dealers); mandatory clearing and exchange trading is in effect for certain types of swaps; reporting requirements apply to almost all swap transactions; and margin requirements for swaps between financial entities are being phased in. At the same time, with the change of U.S. administration, new consideration (both at a legislative and regulatory level) is being given to modifications to the derivatives regulatory landscape.
