What is typical of the level of performance of the loans underlying small business related securities that meet the current standard of creditworthiness in section 3(a)(53)(A) of the Exchange Act (i.e., rated in the top four rating categories by at least one NRSRO)? 7. Could the requirements of Regulation AB or the proposed shelf eligibility requirements described below serve, in whole or in part, as a standard for creditworthiness for a mortgage related security? In 2010, the Commission proposed to eliminate the provision for shelf eligibility for mortgage related securities regardless of the form that can be used for registration of the securities.65 Under the proposal, offerings of mortgage related securities would only be eligible for shelf registration on a delayed basis if, like other asset-backed securities, they meet the proposed criteria for eligibility for shelf registration that would be contained in new proposed Form SF–3. Note that the proposed requirements for shelf eligibility would replace, in part, the requirement that the securities be investment grade rated.66 Could the standards distinguish between issuers that meet the shelf eligibility requirements and those that do not? If so, why and how should the conditions differ? Could we require that a mortgage related security be required to be registered on existing Form S–3 or, if adopted, Form SF–3? Commentators should be specific in their responses and provide data and statistics, if possible. Commission’s interpretation herein does not address any other provisions of the definitions of ‘‘mortgage related security’’ or ‘‘small business related security’’ in sections 3(a)(41) and 3(a)(53)(A) of the Exchange Act, respectively. IV. Conclusion PART 241—INTERPRETIVE RELEASES RELATING TO THE SECURITIES EXCHANGE ACT OF 1934 AND GENERAL RULES AND REGULATIONS THEREUNDER For the foregoing reasons, the Commission is providing a transitional interpretation that will be applicable on and after July 20, 2012, and until such time as final Commission rules establishing new standards of creditworthiness are effective.
