The passage of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, Public Law 111-203, 124 Stat. 1376 (2010), broadened the Commission's regulatory authority under the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act ("GLB Act") to cover two new entities: Swap Dealers and Major Swap Participants, in addition to Futures Commission Merchants, Commodity Trading Advisors, Commodity Pool Operators, and Introducing Brokers, Specifically, amendments to the GLB Act found in section 1093 of the Dodd-Frank Act, reaffirmed the Commission's authority to promulgate regulations to require entities that are subject to the Commission's jurisdiction to provide certain privacy protections for consumer financial information. These regulations were later extended to Retail Foreign Exchange Dealers. Section 124 of the Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000 (“CFMA”) amended the Commodity Exchange Act (the “Act”) and added a new Section 5g to the Act to (i) add that futures commission merchants, commodity trading advisors, commodity pool operators, and introducing brokers that are subject to CFTC jurisdiction with respect to any financial activity shall be treated as a financial institution for purposes of Title V, Subtitle A of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (“GLB Act”), (ii) treat the Commission as a Federal functional regulator for purposes of applying the provisions of the GLB Act, and (iii) direct the Commission to prescribe regulations under Title V of the GLB Act. The Commission adopted regulations for these entities under part 160 and later extended them to retail foreign exchange dealers, swap dealers, and major swap participants. Part 160 requires those subject to the regulations, among other things, to provide privacy and opt out notices to customers and to adopt appropriate policies and procedures to safeguard customer records and information.
