    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    In the Federal Register of November 2, 2012 (77 FR 66287), the Commodity Futures Trading Commission published final rules adopting new regulations to implement particular provisions of the Start Printed Page 30534Commodity Exchange Act, as added by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. That document inadvertently failed to remove several obsolete provisions in § 1.33(a)(2) and (b)(3). Accordingly, the Commission is making a correcting amendment to § 1.33 that removes the second paragraph (a)(2)(ii), removes paragraph (a)(2)(v), and removes the introductory clause to paragraph (b)(3).
