(b) Special account identification. The name, address, business phone, and for individuals, the person's job title and employer for the following:
(1) The person originating the account, if the special account is a house omnibus or customer omnibus account; or
(2) The person (i.e., individual, corporation, partnership, etc.) who owns the special account, if such person (or an employee or officer) also controls the trading of the special account. And, in addition:
(i) The registration status of the person as a commodity trading advisor or a securities investment advisor;

(v) For special accounts with five or fewer persons having trading authority, the names and locations of all persons with trading authority that have not been identified in paragraphs (b)(2) or (b)(2)(iv) of this section; or
(3) The account controller, if trading of the special account is controlled by a person or legal entity who is an independent account controller for the account owners as defined in § 150.1(e). And, in addition:
(i) The registration status of the person as a commodity trading advisor or a securities investment advisor;

(c) [Reserved]
(d) Commercial use. For futures or options, commodities in which positions or transactions in the account are associated with a commercial activity of the account owner in a related cash commodity or activity (i.e., those considered as hedging, risk-reducing, or otherwise off-setting with respect to the cash commodity or activity).
(e) Account executive.

The authorized representative shall sign the Form 102 or satisfy such other requirements for authenticating the report as instructed in writing by the Commission or its designee.
(g) Form 102 updates. If, at the time an account is in special account status and a Form 102 filed by a futures commission merchant, clearing member, or foreign broker is then no longer accurate because there has been a change in the information required under paragraph (b) of this section since the previous filing, the futures commission merchant, clearing member, or foreign broker shall file an updated Form 102 with the Commission within three business days after such change occurs.
(h) Exclusively self-cleared contracts. Unless determined otherwise by the Commission, reporting markets that list exclusively self-cleared contracts shall meet the requirements of paragraphs (a) through (g) of this section, as they apply to trading in such contracts by all clearing members, on behalf of all clearing members.
