Domestic entities to which the Commission discloses such information ‘‘shall maintain such information as confidential in accordance with the requirements established under [Section 21F(h)(2)(A].’’ Section 21F(h)(2)(D)(ii)(I), 15 U.S.C. 78u– 6(h)(2)(D)(ii)(I). Foreign securities authorities and foreign law enforcement authorities to which the Commission discloses such information ‘‘shall maintain such information in accordance with such assurances of confidentiality as the Commission determines appropriate.’’ Section 21F(h)(2)(D)(ii)(II), 15 U.S.C. 78u– 6(h)(2)(D)(ii)(II). The Commission is delegating authority to the Director of the Division of Enforcement to disclose whistleblower identifying information to the entities described in Section 21F(h)(2)(D), in accordance with the restrictions of Section 21F(h)(2)(A) and (D). The delegation will increase investor protection by facilitating administration of the whistleblower award program and the investigations and actions by those agencies and authorities that may receive whistleblower identifying information pursuant to this delegation. VerDate Mar<15>2010 13:26 Jul 06, 2011 Jkt 223001 Administrative Law Matters The Commission finds, in accordance with the Administrative Procedure Act (‘‘APA’’) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(A)), that this amendment relates solely to agency organization, procedure, or practice and does not relate to a substantive rule. Accordingly, the provisions of the APA regarding notice of the proposed rulemaking, opportunities for public participation, and publication of the amendment prior to its effective date, 5 U.S.C. 553, are not applicable. For the same reason, and because this amendment does not substantively affect the rights or obligations of nonagency parties, the provisions of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act, 5 U.S.C. 804(3)(C), are not applicable. Additionally, the provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, which apply only when notice and comment are required by the APA or other law, 5 U.S.C. 603, are not applicable. Further, because the amendment imposes no new burdens on parties in investigations, the Commission does not believe it will have any anti-competitive effects for purposes of Section 23(a)(2) of the Securities Exchange Act, 15 U.S.C. 78w(a)(2). Finally, this amendment does not contain any collection of information requirements as defined by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980, as amended. Accordingly, the amendment is effective July 7, 2011. List of Subjects in 17 CFR Part 200 Administrative practice and procedure, Authority delegations (Government agencies).
