    • GEN 2.22.1 Guidance

      The main distinction between operating an MTFG and operating an OTFG is that the former is operated in accordance with the non-discretionary rules adopted and implemented by the operator, whereas the latter is operated in accordance with the discretionary rules of the operator. Accordingly, a PersonG operating an OTFG has more flexibility relating to how it applies its rules to participants on its facility, whereas a PersonG operating an MTFG is required to apply its rules in a non-discretionary manner across all participants on its facility.
