Any material changes or omissions in the facts and circumstances pursuant to which this Order is granted might require the Commission to reconsider its finding that the standards for relief set forth in Regulation 30.10 and, in particular, Appendix A, have been met. Further, if experience demonstrates that the continued effectiveness of this Order in general, or with respect to a particular firm, would be contrary to public policy or the public interest, or that the systems in place for the exchange of information or other circumstances do not warrant continuation of the exemptive relief granted herein, the Commission may condition, modify, suspend, terminate, withhold as to a specific firm, or otherwise restrict the exemptive relief granted in this Order, as appropriate, on its own motion. The Commission will continue to monitor the implementation of its program to exempt firms located in jurisdictions generally deemed to have a comparable regulatory program from the application of certain of the foreign futures and option regulations and will make necessary adjustments if appropriate.

The amendment will clarify that a filing VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:03 Mar 27, 2007 Jkt 211001 submitted on an electronic filing system other than the Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval (‘‘EDGAR’’) system is not a mandated submission under Regulation S–T and will clarify that filers who submit forms on EDGAR for review by the Division of Market Regulation are subject to the requirements of Regulation S–T. The Commission is also amending the Rules of Organization and Program Management to delegate authority to the Director of the Division of Market Regulation to adjust the filing date of an electronic submission and to grant or deny a continuing hardship exemption from electronic filing under Regulation S–T. The amendment will conserve Commission resources and will allow the Commission to make such adjustments and to grant or deny such exemptions in a timely manner. DATES: Effective Date: April 27, 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background On October 4, 2004, the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) adopted an amendment to Rule 19b–4 1 to require that Form 19b–4 2 be filed electronically on the Commission’s Electronic Form 19b–4 Filing System (‘‘EFFS’’).3 At the same time, the Commission amended Rule 101(a) of Regulation S–T 4 to mandate that Form 19b–4 be submitted to the Commission in electronic format and amended Rule 101(c)(9) of Regulation S–T to except Form 19b–4 from the requirement that filings submitted to the Division of Market Regulation be submitted in paper format. However, Regulation S–T only applies to electronic filings that are submitted on EDGAR, and Form 19b–4 is not submitted through EDGAR. As a result, Rules 101(a) and 101(c)(9) of Regulation S–T should not have been amended with respect to Form 19b–4. The Commission is making a technical amendment to remove the reference to Form 19b–4 in Rule 101(a) and to revise Rule 101(c)(9) to clarify that forms submitted for review by the Division of Market Regulation electronically, whether on EDGAR or on another CFR 240.19b–4.

Additionally, the Commission is making a technical amendment to Rule 100 of Regulation S–T to include persons or entities that submit filings for review by the Division of Market Regulation as persons and entities that are subject to the electronic filing requirements of Regulation S–T. Because the EDGAR system was initially designed for the electronic submission of documents that are subject to review by the Divisions of Corporation Finance and Investment Management, Rule 100 currently only applies to registrants whose filings are submitted for review by those divisions and to such registrant’s joint or third party filers. To reflect the fact that the Commission has recently added Forms 25, TA–1, TA–2, and TA–W, which are submitted for review by the Division of Market Regulation, to the list of mandated electronic filings in Section 101(a) of Regulation S–T, the Commission is amending Rule 100 to include the filers of any other forms that are submitted through EDGAR for review by the Division of Market Regulation as persons or entities that are subject to the electronic filing requirements of Regulation S–T. The Commission is amending Rule 30–3 of the Rules of Organization and Program Management 5 to add new paragraphs (j) and (k) to delegate to the Director of the Division of Market Regulation authority to grant or deny a request submitted under Regulation S– T to adjust the filing date of an electronic filing and to grant or deny, as appropriate, a continuing hardship exemption to an electronic filer under Rule 202 of Regulation S–T. The delegation of authority to the Director of the Division of Market Regulation is designed to conserve Commission resources by permitting staff to adjust the filing date of an electronic filing and to grant or to deny exemptions where appropriate and in a timely manner. Nevertheless, the staff may submit matters to the Commission for consideration, as it deems appropriate. The Directors of the Divisions of Corporation Finance and of Investment Management have previously been delegated such authority.6 II.

For these reasons, the Commission finds that publishing the changes for comment is unnecessary.8 The amendment to Rule 30–3 of the Commission’s Rules of Organization and Program Management relates solely to agency organization, procedure, or practice.

Technical Amendment to Regulation S-T

AGENCY: Securities and Exchange Commission.

ACTION: Final rule; technical amendments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Securities and Exchange Commission (``Commission'') is 
amending Regulation S-T to make a correction with respect to mandated 
electronic submissions and to include persons or entities that submit 
filings for review by the Division of Market Regulation as persons or 
entities that are subject to the electronic filing requirements of 
Regulation S-T. The amendment will clarify that a filing submitted on 
an electronic filing system other than the Electronic Data Gathering, 
Analysis, and Retrieval (``EDGAR'') system is not a mandated submission 
under Regulation S-T and will clarify that filers who submit forms on 
EDGAR for review by the Division of Market Regulation are subject to 
the requirements of Regulation S-T. The Commission is also amending the 
Rules of Organization and Program Management to delegate authority to 
the Director of the Division of Market Regulation to adjust the filing 
date of an electronic submission and to grant or deny a continuing 
hardship exemption from electronic filing under Regulation S-T. The 
amendment will conserve Commission resources and will allow the 
Commission to make such adjustments and to grant or deny such 
exemptions in a timely manner.

DATES: Effective Date: April 27, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jerry Carpenter, Assistant Director, 
or Catherine Moore, Special Counsel, (202) 551-5710, Division of Market 
Regulation, Securities and Exchange Commission, 100 F Street, NE., 
Washington, DC 20549-6628.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    On October 4, 2004, the Securities and Exchange Commission 
(``Commission'') adopted an amendment to Rule 19b-4 \1\ to require that 
Form 19b-4 \2\ be filed electronically on the Commission's Electronic 
Form 19b-4 Filing System (``EFFS'').\3\ At the same time, the 
Commission amended Rule 101(a) of Regulation S-T \4\ to mandate that 
Form 19b-4 be submitted to the Commission in electronic format and 
amended Rule 101(c)(9) of Regulation S-T to except Form 19b-4 from the 
requirement that filings submitted to the Division of Market Regulation 
be submitted in paper format. However, Regulation S-T only applies to 
electronic filings that are submitted on EDGAR, and Form 19b-4 is not 
submitted through EDGAR. As a result, Rules 101(a) and 101(c)(9) of 
Regulation S-T should not have been amended with respect to Form 19b-4. 
The Commission is making a technical amendment to remove the reference 
to Form 19b-4 in Rule 101(a) and to revise Rule 101(c)(9) to clarify 
that forms submitted for review by the Division of Market Regulation 
electronically, whether on EDGAR or on another electronic filing system 
such as EFFS, do not have to be submitted in paper format.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Additionally, the Commission is making a technical amendment to 
Rule 100 of Regulation S-T to include persons or entities that submit 
filings for review by the Division of Market Regulation as persons and 
entities that are subject to the electronic filing requirements of 
Regulation S-T. Because the EDGAR system was initially designed for the 
electronic submission of documents that are subject to review by the 
Divisions of Corporation Finance and Investment Management, Rule 100 
currently only applies to registrants whose filings are submitted for 
review by those divisions and to such registrant's joint or third party 
filers. To reflect the fact that the Commission has recently added 
Forms 25, TA-1, TA-2, and TA-W, which are submitted for review by the 
Division of Market Regulation, to the list of mandated electronic 
filings in Section 101(a) of Regulation S-T, the Commission is amending 
Rule 100 to include the filers of any other forms that are submitted 
through EDGAR for review by the Division of Market Regulation as 
persons or entities that are subject to the electronic filing 
requirements of Regulation S-T.
    The Commission is amending Rule 30-3 of the Rules of Organization 
and Program Management \5\ to add new paragraphs (j) and (k) to 
delegate to the Director of the Division of Market Regulation authority 
to grant or deny a request submitted under Regulation S-T to adjust the 
filing date of an electronic filing and to grant or deny, as 
appropriate, a continuing hardship exemption to an electronic filer 
under Rule 202 of Regulation S-T. The delegation of authority to the 
Director of the Division of Market Regulation is designed to conserve 
Commission resources by permitting staff to adjust the filing date of 
an electronic filing and to grant or to deny exemptions where 
appropriate and in a timely manner. Nevertheless, the staff may submit 
matters to the Commission for consideration, as it deems appropriate. 
The Directors of the Divisions of Corporation Finance and of Investment 
Management have previously been delegated such authority.\6\

II. Certain Findings

    Under the Administrative Procedure Act (``APA''), notice of 
proposed

[[Page 14417]]

rulemaking is not required ``(A) [for] interpretive rules, general 
statements of policy, or rules of agency organization, procedure, or 
practice; or (B) when the agency for good cause finds (and incorporates 
the finding and a brief statement of reasons therefore in the rules 
issued) that notice and public procedure thereon are impracticable, 
unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.'' \7\ The Commission 
is making technical amendments to Regulation S-T to correct Rule 101 
and to make a conforming change to Rule 100 with respect to forms 
submitted for review by the Division of Market Regulation and 
therefore, notice and public procedure is unnecessary. Specifically, 
Rule 101(a) is being amended to remove the reference to Form 19b-4 and 
Rule 101(c) is being amended to clarify that only forms which are not 
submitted electronically are required to be filed in paper. 
Additionally, Rule 100 is being amended to add a new paragraph (d) 
which will define filers whose filings are subject to review by the 
Division of Market Regulation as persons or entities that are subject 
to Regulation S-T. The amendment reflects the fact that the Commission 
currently mandates that Forms 25, TA-1, TA-2, and TA-W be filed 
electronically on EDGAR and that the filers of these forms should be 
(and probably believe that they are) subject to the requirements and 
protections of Regulation S-T. For these reasons, the Commission finds 
that publishing the changes for comment is unnecessary.\8\ The 
amendment to Rule 30-3 of the Commission's Rules of Organization and 
Program Management relates solely to agency organization, procedure, or 
practice. As such, notice of proposed rulemaking is not required.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ 5 U.S.C. 553(b).
    \8\ For similar reasons, the amendments do not require analysis 
under the Regulatory Flexibility Act or analysis of major status 
under the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act. See 5 
U.S.C. 601(2) (for purposes of Regulatory Flexibility analyses, the 
term ``rule'' means any rule for which the agency publishes a 
general notice of proposed rulemaking) and 5 U.S.C. 804(3)(C) (for 
purposes of congressional review of agency rulemaking, the term 
``rule'' does not include any rule of agency organization, 
procedure, or practice that does not substantially affect the rights 
or obligations of non-agency parties).

III. Statutory Authority

    The Commission is adopting amendments Sec.  200.30-3 under the 
authority set forth in sections 4A(a) and 23(a) of the Securities 
Exchange Act.\9\ The Commission is adopting amendments to Regulation S-
T under authority set forth in sections 19(a) of the Securities Act and 
23(a) of the Securities Exchange Act.\10\ The amendments to Sec.  
200.30-3 and to Regulation S-T are adopted under Chapter II of Title 17
