The Dodd-Frank Act established a novel, comprehensive framework for the regulation of over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives and the market participants who transact in these products.  That regulatory framework, split primarily between the SEC and CFTC, has been substantially implemented by the CFTC.  For their part, the SEC has made substantial progress and has most recently focused on finalizing the rules applicable to security-based swap dealers and major participants.
