The visitor information system contains information provided by visitors to the agency. The visitor provides identification, in the form of a driver's license, passport, or Federal/Military ID. The company affiliation of the visitor will also be requested.

The purpose of the information collection is to enhance the security of CFTC employees and property by verifying the identity of visitors, and to track the location of the visitor so that, in the event of an emergency, the agency can account for all the people in its space. Records in the visitor system will be retained for three months and then purged.
