Within the Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000, part 124 amended the CEA to include area 5g, which requires that futures payment merchants (FCMs), commodity trading advisors (CTAs), commodity pool operators (CPOs) and launching brokers (IBs) (collectively, Covered people) be susceptible to the consumer financial privacy requirements of part 501 for the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (name V).
Title V requires that one covered agencies establish appropriate requirements for the entities at the mercy of their jurisdiction “(1) to guarantee the protection and privacy of client documents and information; (2) to guard against any expected threats or dangers to your safety or integrity of these documents; and (3) to guard against unauthorized usage of or usage of such documents or information which may lead to significant damage or inconvenience to your customer” 7 (the step-by-step needs).
In 2001, the CFTC adopted regulation 160.30 mandating that FCMs, Retail foreign currency Dealers (RFEDs), CTAs, CPOs, IBs, MSPs and SDs beneath the jurisdiction associated with CFTC (collectively, Covered people) follow policies and procedures fairly made to meet the Detailed needs. 8 In a 2011 amendment designed to add SDs and MSPs towards the listing of entities at the mercy of this component 160.30 requirement, the Detailed Requirements had been inadvertently deleted. 9
In 2019, the CFTC proposed amendments to replace the unintentionally deleted Detailed demands to component 160.30 november. 10 In this last guideline, the Commission is adopting the amendments to component 160.30 in order that Covered Persons will likely be expected to follow policies and procedures fairly made to meet the Detailed needs.
