Bureau of Political-Military Affairs: Directorate of Defense Trade Controls; Notifications to the Congress of Proposed Commercial Export Licenses, 8650-8653 [05-3370]

Download as PDF 8650 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 34 / Tuesday, February 22, 2005 / Notices NASD believes that the guidance provided in NtM 05–11 constitutes an interpretation of section 3 of Schedule A to the NASD By-Laws that, due to its nature, should be filed as a proposed rule change. In addition, NASD also is filing its Permanent Self-Reporting Form with the Commission.5 A copy of the Permanent Self-Reporting Form will be attached to NtM 05–11. NASD has revised its Permanent Self-Reporting Form to: (1) Incorporate the new rate structure that became effective on January 7, 2005 (in conformity with the change to the Commission’s Section 31 fee rate); (2) incorporate minor changes to the instructions section; and (3) create an obligation on certain member firms to file the Permanent SelfReporting Form each month (regardless of whether they have any reportable transactions). 2. Statutory Basis NASD believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with the provisions of section 15A(b)(6) of the Act,6 which requires, among other things, that NASD’s rules must be designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, to promote just and equitable principles of trade, and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest. In addition, NASD believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with the provisions of section 15A(b)(5) of the Act,7 which requires, among other things, that NASD’s rules provide for the equitable allocation of reasonable dues, fees, and other charges among members and issuers and other persons using any facility or system that NASD operates or controls, insofar as it is intended to assist members in complying with section 3 of Schedule A to the NASD By-Laws. 5 As noted in NtM 05–11, clearing and selfclearing member firms will now be required to file with NASD the Permanent Self-Reporting Form each month, regardless of whether they have qualifying transactions for that month. NASD is requiring a monthly filing by all clearing and selfclearing member firms to ensure that they conduct the necessary review to determine that all qualifying transactions have been properly reported. Member firms that do not have any reportable transactions for a given month will be required to submit the blank form signed by an authorized representative, along with a statement that the firm had no reportable transactions for the month. While NASD is filing its Permanent SelfReporting Form with the Commission in this instance, NASD does not intend to file its Permanent Self-Reporting Form with the Commission each time it makes a non-substantive change to the text of the form or changes that reflect adjustments in the amount or scope of the fee, where such adjustments are determined solely by reference to section 31 of the Act. 6 15 U.S.C. 78o–3(b)(6). 7 15 U.S.C. 78o–3(b)(5). VerDate jul<14>2003 19:10 Feb 18, 2005 Jkt 205001 B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition NASD does not believe that the proposed rule change will result in any burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. C. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others Written comments were neither solicited nor received. III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action The proposed rule change has become effective pursuant to section 19(b)(3)(A)(i) of the Act 8 and Rule 19b– 4(f)(1) thereunder.9 NASD asserts that the proposed rule change constitutes a stated policy, practice, or interpretation with respect to the meaning, administration, or enforcement of an existing rule of NASD. NASD will announce the implementation date of the proposed rule change in NtM 05–11, which NASD expects to issue on the same date as the filing of the proposed rule change with the Commission. At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule change, the Commission may summarily abrogate such rule change if it appears to the Commission that such action is necessary or appropriate in the public interest, for the protection of investors, or otherwise in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. IV. Solicitation of Comments Interested persons are invited to submit written data, views and arguments concerning the foregoing, including whether the proposed rule change is consistent with the Act. Comments may be submitted by any of the following methods: Electronic Comments • Use the Commission’s Internet comment form (http://www.sec.gov/ rules/sro.shtml); or • Send an e-mail to rulecomments@sec.gov.
