Download as PDF 54792 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 181 / Tuesday, September 19, 2006 / Proposed Rules the Commission as benefiting efficiency and not impacting competition. 3. Financial integrity of futures markets and price discovery. The proposed amendment should have no effect, from the standpoint of imposing costs or creating benefits, on the financial integrity of futures markets or the price discovery function of such markets. 4. Sound risk management practices. The proposed amendment should have no effect, from the standpoint of imposing costs or creating benefits, on sound risk management practices. 5. Other public interest considerations. The Commission believes that the proposed regulation requiring electronic filing for the submission by IBs of certified Forms 1– FR, and the requirement that IBs filing certified FOCUS Reports comply with NFA instructions as to filing in paper form or electronically, is beneficial in that it should streamline the timeliness of delivery and electronic accessibility of such reports, and permit NFA to retain such reports in a more streamlined and accessible manner. After considering these factors, the Commission has determined to propose the amendments discussed above. The Commission invites public comment on its application of the cost-benefit provision. Commenters also are invited to submit any data that they may have quantifying the costs and benefits of the proposal with their comment letters.
