Download as PDF 57586 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 189 / Friday, September 29, 2006 / Notices jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES foreign tariff rates, and providing the harmonized system number. Current applied tariff rates for the EU can be accessed at: http://www.trade.gov/td/tic/ tariff/eu_schedule/index.htm. (The public is being directed to sources of applied tariff rates for ease of finding such information. The assessment of compensation, as described above, will be done using bound rates.) Services Applicable GATS Procedures: Article V, paragraph 5, of the General Agreement on Trade in Services (‘‘GATS’’) provides that if a WTO Member intends to modify or withdraw a specific GATS commitment as a result of joining an economic integration agreement such as a customs union, it must provide 90 days advance notice of such modification and follow the applicable procedures set out in GATS Article XXI. Paragraph 2 of Article XXI provides that WTO Members who believe they may be affected by the proposed modification of commitments can request negotiations with the modifying Member with the purpose of reaching an agreement on compensation for the proposed modification in the form of offsetting liberalization commitments in other services sectors. If the negotiation does not result in an agreement on compensation, the Member affected by the modification may request arbitration. If the modifying Member does not comply with the findings of the arbitration, the affected Member may withdraw substantially equivalent concessions. Bulgaria and Romania’s entry into the EU may also entail modification of the exiting lists of MFN exemptions maintained by the EU or the accession countries under GATS Article II. The United States maintains that the EU must engage through a separate WTO process (namely a waiver process under Article IX of the Agreement Establishing the WTO) with its partners in cases where modifications to MFN exemption lists are contemplated. However, comments from the public on anticipated trade impacts implied by a consolidation of the existing accession country and EU MFN exemptions lists are also solicited through this notice. Submissions: The public is advised to examine the existing GATS schedules of specific commitments and lists of mostfavored-nation exemptions of the EU in comparison with those of Bulgaria and Romania to determine whether changes that occur as a result of the consolidation of the schedules and lists would adversely impact U.S. commercial interests. The existing schedules and lists are accessible VerDate Aug<31>2005 20:43 Sep 28, 2006 Jkt 208001 through the WTO’s Services Database Web site, http://tsdb.wto.org/wto/ WTOHomepublic.htm. From that site, click on ‘‘Pre-defined Reports’’ and then ‘‘All Sectors in Each Country’’. Other Regulatory Measures Adoption of the EU acquis communautaire by Bulgaria and Romania will entail adoption of the EU’s standards, regulations and conformity assessment procedures, including sanitary and phytosanitary requirements, testing, certification, labeling requirements, etc. The accession countries will also be obligated to impose import restrictions, quantitative restrictions and antidumping orders similar to those of the EU. The public is encouraged to comment where appropriate on how the introduction of these types of regulatory measures would affect U.S. commercial interests. Supportive Data and Recommendations for Compensation All submissions should describe the product or service in question, and in the case of products, should include the Harmonized System tariff heading(s). Submissions should describe the current market access for the products or services, including value and quantity of exports, any existing problems, and should identify changes that are anticipated upon accession countries’ entry into the EU. In the area of services, submissions should include, if possible, detailed information regarding conditions for market access over the period leading up to entry into the EU, because these countries may have made incremental changes over a long period of time to conform their practices and access to that of the European Union. Submissions may also include recommendations for appropriate compensatory adjustments the United States might seek for instances of diminished market access. These recommendations could include such items as reductions in the EU common external tariff on goods, improvements to EU market access commitments on goods and services, or other changes in the EU trade regime for goods and services. 2. Requirements for Submissions To ensure prompt and full consideration of responses, USTR strongly recommends that interested persons submit comments by electronic mail to the following e-mail address: FR0628@ustr.eop.gov.

Supporting documentation submitted as spreadsheets is acceptable in Quattro Pro or Excel format. For any document containing business confidential information submitted electronically, the file name of the business confidential version should begin with the characters ‘‘BC–’’, and the file name of the public version should begin with the character ‘‘P–’’. The ‘‘P–’’ or ‘‘BC–’’ should be followed by the name of the submitted information. Persons who make submissions by e-mail should not provide separate cover letters; information that might appear in a cover letter should be included in the submission itself. To the extent possible, any attachments to the submission should be included in the same file as the submission itself, and not as separate files. Written submissions will be placed in a file open to public inspection pursuant to 15 CFR 2003.5, except confidential business information exempt from public inspection in accordance with 15 CFR 2003.6 must be clearly marked ‘‘Business Confidential’’ at the top of each page, including any cover letter or cover page, and must be accompanied by a non-confidential summary of the confidential information. All public documents and non-confidential summaries will be available for public inspection in the USTR Reading Room in Room 3 of the Annex of the Office of the USTR, 1724 F Street, NW., Washington, DC 20508.

Pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’) 1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 notice is hereby given that on September 7, 2006, the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. (‘‘NASD’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘SEC’’ or ‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change as described in Items I and II, which Items have been prepared by NASD. NASD has designated the proposed rule change as constituting a ‘‘non-controversial’’ rule change under Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 3 and Rule 19b–4(f)(6) thereunder,4 which renders the proposal effective upon receipt of this filing by the Commission.

I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change NASD is proposing to amend NASD Rule 2210 and Interpretive Material 2210–6 to clarify the filing requirements for communications concerning investment analysis tools. The text of the proposed rule change is available on NASD’s Web site (www.nasd.com), at the NASD’s Office of the Secretary, and at the Commission’s Public Reference Room. II. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change In its filing with the Commission, NASD included statements concerning the purpose of and basis for the proposed rule change. The text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. NASD has prepared summaries, set forth in sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant aspects of such statements. A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose On September 28, 2004, the Commission approved IM–2210–6, regarding ‘‘investment analysis tools.’’ IM–2210–6(b) defines the term ‘‘investment analysis tool’’ as ‘‘an interactive technological tool that produces simulations and statistical analyses that present the likelihood of various investment outcomes if certain investments are made or certain investment strategies or styles are undertaken, thereby serving as an additional resource to investors in the evaluation of the potential risks and returns of investment choices.’’ IM– 2210–6 allows a member to use and provide customers access to investment analysis tools if the member complies with certain disclosure and other requirements. IM–2210–6 became effective on February 14, 2005. IM–2210–6(a) requires a member that offers or intends to offer an investment analysis tool, within 10 days of first use, to (1) provide the NASD Advertising Regulation Department (Department) access to the investment analysis tool, and (2) file with the Department any template for written reports produced by, or sales material concerning, the PO 00000 Frm 00128 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 57587 tool. Recently, questions have arisen regarding why the filing requirement was not included with other communications filing requirements under Rule 2210(c). Members have noted that persons reading Rule 2210(c) might not understand that there is an additional filing requirement for investment analysis tool report templates and sales material under IM– 2210–6. Members have also asked NASD staff what the term ‘‘sales material’’ as used in IM–2210–6, is intended to include, since ‘‘sales material’’ is not defined in either Rule 2210 or IM–2210–6. In response to these inquiries, NASD is including a provision in Rule 2210(c) that refers to the existing requirement set forth in IM–2210–6 to file templates for written reports produced by, or advertisements and sales literature concerning, investment analysis tools. This new provision does not make any substantive changes to the current filing requirements for communications concerning investment analysis tools. NASD also is deleting the term ‘‘sales material’’ throughout IM–2210–6 and replacing it with the terms ‘‘advertisement’’ and ‘‘sales literature’’ to clarify the rule’s application. This clarification is consistent with how the staff has applied the rule to date, and thus also does not make any substantive changes to the scope of IM–2210–6. 2. Statutory Basis NASD believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with the provisions of Section 15A(b)(6) of the Act,5 which requires, among other things, NASD rules to 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. NASD believes that clarifying the filing requirements for communications concerning investment analysis tools will eliminate confusion regarding certain provisions of Rule 2210 and IM– 2210–6. 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, as amended. 5 15 E:\FR\FM\29SEN1.SGM U.S.C. 78o–3(b)(6). 29SEN1
