The Commission conditioned the operation of the Nasdaq Exchange upon satisfaction of several requirements, one of which was the approval by the Commission of an agreement pursuant to Rule 17d–2 between Nasdaq and NASD. Securities Exchange Act Release No. 53128, 71 FR 3550 (January 23, 2006). Commission approval of this plan allocating regulatory responsibility satisfies this requirement. 5 15 U.S.C. 78s(g)(1). with its members with the Act, the rules and regulations thereunder, and the SRO’s own rules, unless the SRO is relieved of this responsibility pursuant to Section 17(d) or 19(g)(2) of the Act.6 Section 17(d)(1) of the Act was intended, in part, to eliminate unnecessary multiple examinations and regulatory duplication for those brokerdealers that maintain memberships in more than one SRO.7 With respect to common members of two or more SROs, Section 17(d)(1) authorizes the Commission, by rule or order, to relieve an SRO of the responsibility to receive regulatory reports, to examine for and enforce compliance with applicable statutes, rules and regulations, or to perform other specified regulatory functions. To implement Section 17(d)(1), the Commission adopted two rules: Rule 17d–18 and Rule 17d–2 under the Act.9 Rule 17d–2 under the Act permits SROs to propose joint plans allocating regulatory responsibilities, other than financial responsibility rules, with respect to common members. Under paragraph (c) of Rule 17d–2, the Commission may declare such a plan effective if, after providing for notice and comment, it determines that the plan is necessary or appropriate in the public interest and for the protection of investors, to foster cooperation and coordination among self-regulatory organizations, to remove impediments to and foster the development of a national market system and a national clearance and settlement system, and in conformity with the factors set forth in Section 17(d) of the Act. Upon effectiveness of a plan filed pursuant to Rule 17d–2, any self-regulatory organization is relieved of those regulatory responsibilities for common members that are allocated by the plan to another self-regulatory organization. On April 17, 2006, the Commission published notice of the filing by Nasdaq and NASD of a joint plan allocating regulatory responsibility for common members.10 No comments were received.
