Accordingly, the Commission noted that as a condition to the operation of the Nasdaq Exchange, Nasdaq must file a minor rule violation plan with the Commission. 6 Consistent with Nasdaq’s rules, Nasdaq noted in its submission to the Commission that the Department of Enforcement, the Department of Market Regulation, and the Office of Disciplinary Affairs will be comprised of NASD Regulation, Inc. (‘‘NASDR’’) staff acting on behalf of Nasdaq pursuant to Nasdaq’s contractual arrangement with 4 The SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION VerDate Aug<31>2005 1(c)(1) under the Act3 requiring that a self-regulatory organization promptly file notice with the Commission of any final disciplinary action taken with respect to any person or organization.4 In accordance with paragraph (c)(2) of Rule 19d–1 of the Act, Nasdaq proposes to designate certain specified rule violations as minor rule violations, and requests that it be relieved of the reporting requirements regarding such violations, provided it gives notice of such violations to the Commission on a quarterly basis. Nasdaq proposes to include in its proposed MRVP the policies and procedures currently included in Nasdaq Rule 9216(b) (‘‘Procedure for Violations Under Plan Pursuant to SEC Rule 19d–1(c)(2)’’) and the rule violations currently included in Nasdaq Rule IM–9216 (‘‘Violations Appropriate for Disposition Under Plan Pursuant to SEC Rule 19d–1(c)(2)’’).5 According to Nasdaq’s proposed MRVP, under Rule 9216(b) and IM– 9216, Nasdaq or the Nasdaq Review Counsel may impose a fine (not to exceed $2,500) and/or a censure on a member or an associated person with respect to any rule listed in IM–9216. If the person against whom the fine or censure is imposed does not dispute the violation, the Department of Enforcement or the Department of Market Regulation may prepare and request that such person execute a minor rule violation plan letter.6 In such Jkt 208001 PO 00000 Frm 00080 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 13645 a letter, the member or associated person accepts a finding of violation, consents to the imposition of sanctions, and agrees to waive the right to a hearing before a Hearing Panel (or, if applicable, an Extended Hearing Panel), any right of appeal to the Nasdaq Review Council, the Commission, or the courts, and any other challenge to the validity of the letter. The letter will describe the act or practice engaged in or omitted, the rule, regulation, or statutory provision violated, and the sanction or sanctions to be imposed.7 If a member or associated person executes a minor rule violation plan letter, the letter shall be submitted to the Nasdaq Review Council. The Office of Disciplinary Affairs may accept such letter or refer it to the Nasdaq Review Council for acceptance or rejection. Similarly, the Review Subcommittee of the Nasdaq Review Council may accept or reject such letter or refer it to the Nasdaq Review Council for acceptance or rejection. If the letter is rejected, Nasdaq may take any other appropriate disciplinary action with respect to the alleged violation or violations. Nasdaq proposed that the quarterly report of actions taken on minor rule violations under Rule 9216(b) and IM– 9216 would list for each violation: Nasdaq’s internal file number for the case, the name of the individual and/or organization, the nature of the violation, the specific rule provision violated, the sanction imposed, the number of times the rule violation has occurred and the date of disposition.8 The following Nasdaq rule violations currently are included in Rule 9216(b) and IM–9216: Rules 2210, 2211, IM– 2210–1 and 2210–4 (Communications with the public); Rule 3360 (Failure to timely file reports of short positions on Form NS–1); Rule 3110 (Failure to keep and preserve books, accounts, records, memoranda, and correspondence in conformance with all applicable laws, rules, regulations and statements of policy promulgated thereunder, and with the Rules of Nasdaq); Rule 8211 (Failure to submit trading data as requested); Rule 1013 (Failure to timely submit amendments to Form BD); Rule 1031 (Failure to timely submit amendments to Form U4); Rule 1031 (Failure to timely submit amendments to Form U5); Rule 1120 (Failure to comply with the Firm Element of the continuing education requirements); NASDR.

Self-Regulatory Organizations; Notice of Filing of Proposed Minor 
Rule Violation Plan by The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC

March 7, 2006.
    Pursuant to Section 19(d)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 
(``Act''),\1\ and Rule 19d-1(c)(2) thereunder,\2\ notice is hereby 
given that on February 22, 2006, The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC 
(``Nasdaq'' or ``Exchange'') filed with the Securities and Exchange 
Commission (``Commission'') copies of a proposed minor rule violation 
plan (``MRVP'') specifying those uncontested minor rule violations with 
sanctions not exceeding $2,500 which would not be subject to the 
provisions of Rule 19d-1(c)(1) under the Act\3\ requiring that a self-
regulatory organization promptly file notice with the Commission of any 
final disciplinary action taken with respect to any person or 
organization.\4\ In accordance with paragraph (c)(2) of Rule 19d-1 of 
the Act, Nasdaq proposes to designate certain specified rule violations 
as minor rule violations, and requests that it be relieved of the 
reporting requirements regarding such violations, provided it gives 
notice of such violations to the Commission on a quarterly basis. 
Nasdaq proposes to include in its proposed MRVP the policies and 
procedures currently included in Nasdaq Rule 9216(b) (``Procedure for 
Violations Under Plan Pursuant to SEC Rule 19d-1(c)(2)'') and the rule 
violations currently included in Nasdaq Rule IM-9216 (``Violations 
Appropriate for Disposition Under Plan Pursuant to SEC Rule 19d-
1(c)(2)'').\5\

    \4\ The Commission adopted amendments to paragraph (c) of Rule 
19d-1 to allow self-regulatory organizations (``SROs'') to submit 
for Commission approval plans for the abbreviated reporting of minor 
disciplinary infractions. See Exchange Act Release No. 21013 (June 
1, 1984), 49 FR 23828 (June 8, 1984). Any disciplinary action taken 
by an SRO against any person for violation of a rule of the SRO 
which has been designated as a minor rule violation pursuant to such 
a plan filed with the Commission shall not be considered ``final'' 
for purposes of Section 19(d)(1) of the Act if the sanction imposed 
consists of a fine not exceeding $2,500 and the sanctioned person 
has not sought an adjudication, including a hearing, or otherwise 
exhausted his administrative remedies.
    \5\ On January 13, 2006, the Commission approved Nasdaq's 
application for registration as a national securities exchange, 
including the rules governing the Nasdaq exchange. Exchange Act 
Release No. 53128, 71 FR 3550 (January 23, 2006). In the approval 
order, the Commission noted that Nasdaq Rule 9216(b) and IM-9216 
provided for the imposition of fines for minor rule violations 
pursuant to a minor rule violation plan. Accordingly, the Commission 
noted that as a condition to the operation of the Nasdaq Exchange, 
Nasdaq must file a minor rule violation plan with the Commission.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    According to Nasdaq's proposed MRVP, under Rule 9216(b) and IM-
9216, Nasdaq or the Nasdaq Review Counsel may impose a fine (not to 
exceed $2,500) and/or a censure on a member or an associated person 
with respect to any rule listed in IM-9216. If the person against whom 
the fine or censure is imposed does not dispute the violation, the 
Department of Enforcement or the Department of Market Regulation may 
prepare and request that such person execute a minor rule violation 
plan letter.\6\ In such a letter, the member or associated person 
accepts a finding of violation, consents to the imposition of 
sanctions, and agrees to waive the right to a hearing before a Hearing 
Panel (or, if applicable, an Extended Hearing Panel), any right of 
appeal to the Nasdaq Review Council, the Commission, or the courts, and 
any other challenge to the validity of the letter. The letter will 
describe the act or practice engaged in or omitted, the rule, 
regulation, or statutory provision violated, and the sanction or 
sanctions to be imposed.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ Consistent with Nasdaq's rules, Nasdaq noted in its 
submission to the Commission that the Department of Enforcement, the 
Department of Market Regulation, and the Office of Disciplinary 
Affairs will be comprised of NASD Regulation, Inc. (``NASDR'') staff 
acting on behalf of Nasdaq pursuant to Nasdaq's contractual 
arrangement with NASDR. See Nasdaq Rule 9001 and Nasdaq Rule 
9120(f), (g) and (x).
    \7\ Nasdaq attached a sample form of a minor rule violation 
letter with its submission to the Commission.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    If a member or associated person executes a minor rule violation 
plan letter, the letter shall be submitted to the Nasdaq Review 
Council. The Office of Disciplinary Affairs may accept such letter or 
refer it to the Nasdaq Review Council for acceptance or rejection. 
Similarly, the Review Subcommittee of the Nasdaq Review Council may 
accept or reject such letter or refer it to the Nasdaq Review Council 
for acceptance or rejection. If the letter is rejected, Nasdaq may take 
any other appropriate disciplinary action with respect to the alleged 
violation or violations.
    Nasdaq proposed that the quarterly report of actions taken on minor 
rule violations under Rule 9216(b) and IM-9216 would list for each 
violation: Nasdaq's internal file number for the case, the name of the 
individual and/or organization, the nature of the violation, the 
specific rule provision violated, the sanction imposed, the number of 
times the rule violation has occurred and the date of disposition.\8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ Nasdaq attached a sample form of the quarterly report with 
its submission to the Commission.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The following Nasdaq rule violations currently are included in Rule 
9216(b) and IM-9216: Rules 2210, 2211, IM-2210-1 and 2210-4 
(Communications with the public); Rule 3360 (Failure to timely file 
reports of short positions on Form NS-1); Rule 3110 (Failure to keep 
and preserve books, accounts, records, memoranda, and correspondence in 
conformance with all applicable laws, rules, regulations and statements 
of policy promulgated thereunder, and with the Rules of Nasdaq); Rule 
8211 (Failure to submit trading data as requested); Rule 1013 (Failure 
to timely submit amendments to Form BD); Rule 1031 (Failure to timely 
submit amendments to Form U4); Rule 1031 (Failure to timely submit 
amendments to Form U5); Rule 1120 (Failure to comply with the Firm

Rule 3010(b) (Failure to timely file reports pursuant to the Taping 
Rule); Rule 3070 (Failure to timely file reports); Rule 4619(e) 
(Failure to timely file notifications pursuant to SEC Regulation M);

(Failure to properly update published quotations in certain Electronic 
Communication Networks); SEC Exchange Act Rule 17a-5 (Failure to timely 
file FOCUS reports and annual reports); and SEC Exchange Act Rule 17a-
10 (Failure to timely file Schedule I). Nasdaq represented that 
modifications may be made to IM-9216. Nasdaq proposes that when 
amendments to IM-9216 are made pursuant to a rule filing submitted 
under Rule 19b-4 of the Act,\9\ such a filing would automatically be 
deemed a request by Nasdaq for Commission approval of a modification to 
its MRVP.
