Download as PDF 31472 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 125 / Wednesday, July 1, 2009 / Notices Rule 7700 Series 5 and amended certain other provisions.6 In that filing, NASD Rule 7010(g) was renumbered as NASD Rule 7010, renamed, and amended to apply only to the ORF.7 The amendments became operative on March 5, 2007.8 As FINRA stated in the filing, the amendments made to the rule language were not intended to modify any of the charges relating to the ORF. Although there was no intent to modify any charges in connection with reporting transactions to the ORF, the rule language, as amended, omits some securities from the rule because of the definition of ‘‘OTC Equity Security’’ in FINRA Rule 6420. The previous rule, NASD Rule 7010(g), included a catch-all provision that applied a charge of $0.029/side to the ‘‘reporting of all other transactions not subject to comparison.’’ This language included, for example, PORTAL equity securities, which are reported to the ORF pursuant to the PORTAL rules in the FINRA Rule 6630 Series. The term ‘‘OTC Equity Security,’’ however, specifically excludes PORTAL securities and restricted securities from the definition.9 Thus, by using the defined term ‘‘OTC Equity Security,’’ the rule was inadvertently amended to exclude PORTAL equity securities from the scope of the rule. The proposed rule change would delete the reference to ‘‘OTC Equity Security’’ in FINRA Rule 7710 and clarify that the charge applies to the reporting of transactions in any security, not just OTC Equity Securities, to the ORF that are not subject to comparison through the ORF. FINRA has filed the proposed rule change for immediate effectiveness. The effective date and the implementation date will be the date of filing, June 17, 2009. 2. Statutory Basis FINRA believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with the provisions of Section 15A(b)(5) of the Act,10 which 5 At the time of the rule filing, the FINRA Rule 7700 Series was the NASD Rule 7000 Series. The NASD Rule 7000 Series was renumbered as the FINRA Rule 7700 Series in 2008. See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 58643 (September 25, 2008), 73 FR 57174 (October 1, 2008); see also FINRA Regulatory Notice 08–57 (October 2008). 6 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 55538 (March 27, 2007), 72 FR 15924 (April 3, 2007) (Notice of Filing and Immediate Effectiveness of SR–NASD–2007–018). 7 NASD Rule 7010 was later renumbered as FINRA Rule 7710. See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 58643 (September 25, 2008), 73 FR 57174 (October 1, 2008). 8 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 55538 (March 27, 2007), 72 FR 15924 (April 3, 2007) (Notice of Filing and Immediate Effectiveness of SR–NASD–2007–018). 9 See FINRA Rule 6420(c), (d). 10 15 U.S.C. 78o–3(b)(5). VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:22 Jun 30, 2009 Jkt 217001 requires, among other things, that FINRA rules provide for the equitable allocation of reasonable dues, fees and other charges among members and issuers and other persons using any facility or system that FINRA operates or controls. FINRA believes that the proposed rule change clarifies the charges assessed with respect to transactions reported to the ORF and correctly reflects FINRA’s intent when amending the rule in SR–NASD–2007– 018. B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition 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. 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 The foregoing rule change has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 11 and paragraph (f)(2) of Rule 19b–4 thereunder.12 At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule change, the Commission may summarily abrogate such rule change if it appears to the Commission that such action is necessary or appropriate in the public interest, for the protection of investors, or otherwise in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. IV. Solicitation of Comments Interested persons are invited to submit written data, views, and arguments concerning the foregoing, including whether the proposed rule change is consistent with the Act.
