Majority of Dodd-Frank rulemakings remain unfinished

140px-US-SecuritiesAndExchangeCommission-Seal.svgThe April 2013 Davis Polk Dodd-Frank Progress Report showed that of the 398 total rulemakings required under the legislation, regulators have only met a little more than 37 percent of all rule requirements.

Of the 398 total required rulemakings, 148 have been met with final rules, while rules have been proposed to meet 121 more and rules have not yet been proposed to meet 129, or 32.4 percent, of rulemaking requirements.

As of April 1, 279—or 70.1 percent of—Dodd-Frank deadlines have passed, of which 176 deadlines were missed. Regulators have yet to release proposals for 65 of the 176 missed rule deadlines.

The CFTC has finalized 40 of its 60 required rulemakings, while the regulator has missed deadlines but has not yet proposed rules for 6 requirements or for one requirement with a future deadline.

The SEC lags behind in its rulemaking progress, with only 33 of its 95 rulemakings having been met with final rules. Eight rulemaking deadlines have passed in which the SEC has not yet proposed a rule, while the regulator has proposed rules for 41 requirements, the deadlines of which have been missed.

There were no new deadlines, requirements met or requirements proposed in March.
