CFTC Request Relating to Information Pertaining to the Terrorist Attacks   [open pdf - 139KB]

This is an official request to all Futures Industry Entities: "In the wake of the recent terrorist attacks on this country, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission ("CFTC") is asking all futures-related entities (whether or not registered with the CFTC) to cooperate voluntarily with law enforcement authorities in their on-going investigations. Over the last month, futures commission merchants, futures exchanges and other self-regulatory organizations, and other industry groups have responded well to requests to work with law enforcement and to review their records to determine if any transactions or relationships exist or existed with individuals or entities that have been identified by the FBI and other law enforcement agencies. To facilitate these efforts, the CFTC, along with other financial regulators, has worked with law enforcement on a mechanism that will assure the expeditious distribution of a unified list of individuals and entities to a broad range of financial institutions. This list will be referred to as the Control List. Because the Control List contains confidential information, we ask that you disseminate the information within your institution on a need-to-know basis. Under no circumstances should the Control List or the information contained in it be disseminated outside your institution."
