The Commodities Futures Trading Commission approved new rules for the whistleblower program by a vote of 4-1 on August 4. The vote was postponed from the July 19 meeting.
The CFTC announced that the final whistleblower rules will be substantially the same as the proposed rules. They will take effect no later than 60 days after their publication in the Federal Register, but they have not yet been published there.
