Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 118 / Monday, June 22, 2009 / Notices testing exception’’). The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (‘‘FinCEN’’), which is responsible for administering the BSA and its implementing regulations, has stated that the independent testing provision of the BSA precludes AML program testing by personnel with an interest in the outcome of the testing and that an independent testing exception, such as the one in NASD IM–3011–1, is inconsistent with this BSA provision and FinCEN’s interpretive guidance on the BSA’s independent testing requirement.7 Accordingly, consistent with FinCEN’s guidance, FINRA is proposing to eliminate the independent testing exception in connection with its adoption of proposed FINRA Rule 3310. Finally, as stated previously, the proposed rule change would delete Incorporated NYSE Rule 445 and its related supplementary material in their entirety as duplicative. FINRA will announce the implementation date of the proposed rule change in a Regulatory Notice to be published no later than 90 days following Commission approval. 2. Statutory Basis FINRA believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with the provisions of Section 15A(b)(6) of the Act,8 which requires, among other things, that FINRA rules must 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. FINRA believes that the proposed rule change would continue to assist members in identifying and preventing money laundering abuses that can affect the integrity of the U.S. capital markets. B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES FINRA 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. 7 See Letter from Jamal El-Hindi, Associate Director, Regulatory Policy & Programs Division, FinCEN, to Nancy M. Morris, Secretary, SEC (August 22, 2007). FinCEN submitted the letter to the SEC in response to the NYSE’s ‘‘omnibus filing,’’ a rule filing that sought to achieve greater harmonization between the NYSE and NASD rules, including the AML compliance program rules (SR– NYSE–2007–22). See Exchange Act Release No. 56142 (July 16, 2007), 72 FR 42195 (August 1, 2007). 8 15 U.S.C. 78o–3(b)(6). VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:55 Jun 19, 2009 Jkt 217001 C. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others Written comments were neither solicited nor received. III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action Within 35 days of the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register or within such longer period (i) as the Commission may designate up to 90 days of such date if it finds such longer period to be appropriate and publishes its reasons for so finding or (ii) as to which the self-regulatory organization consents, the Commission will: (A) By order approve such proposed rule change, or (B) Institute proceedings to determine whether the proposed rule change should be disapproved.
