The Dodd-Frank Act broadened the CPO and CTA definitions in the Commodity Exchange Act to include swap-related activity. The final amendments conform Part 4 to these changes by requiring CPOs and CTAs to include information on swap intermediaries and activities under the disclosure, reporting and recordkeeping requirements of Part 4.
