ICE works with regulators and policy makers around the world to ensure supervision, compliance and reliable operation of markets. As a catalyst in the development of transparent, global markets, ICE works proactively to maintain the confidence of participants and the integrity of markets.
The ICE Over-the-counter (OTC) electronic marketplace operates as an exempt commercial market (ECM) under the Commodity Exchange Act and regulations of the CFTC.
As an ECM, ICE is required to comply with the access, reporting and record-keeping requirements of the CFTC. Both the CFTC and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission have view access to the ICE trading screens on a real-time basis. In addition, ICE is required to: record and report to the CFTC complaints of alleged fraud or manipulative trading activity that the company receives and report aggregated trade data to the CFTC.
