And Sec. 32.12 covers REPORTING as point six says (on page 2) ".......(6) Each person who is offering and selling the option to an option customer (i) is fully in compliance with each and every requirement of this part 32, (ii) includes in the confirmation statement required by § 32.5(d) to be furnished to option customers the transaction identification number provided by the grantor, (iii) makes such reports to the Commission as are provided for in paragraphs (f) and (h) of this section and as the Commission may otherwise require by rule or regulation or order, and (iv) keeps a record in permanent form which shows, for each commodity option account carried

by such person ...."

Dear Friend,


In US, Whistle blower Law is firmly in place. There are various different provisions and it depends who you are, i.e. a member of public or a employee of a Government, etc. You may have references from
