Discussion and Commission Findings After careful review, the Commission finds that the proposed rule change is consistent with the requirements of the Act and the rules and regulations thereunder applicable to a national securities exchange and, in particular, with Section 15A(b) of the Act.67 In particular, the Commission finds that the proposed rule change is consistent with FINRA believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with the provisions of Section 15A(b)(6) of the Act,68 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 proposes to amend the equity trade reporting rules relating to reporting: (i) an additional time field for specified trades; (ii) execution time in milliseconds; (iii) reversals; (iv) trades executed on non-business days and trades that are more than one year old; and (v) ‘‘step-outs.’’ In addition, FINRA proposes changes in the processing of trades that are submitted to a FINRA Facility for clearing as well as technical changes to the rules relating to the OTC Reporting Facility (‘‘ORF’’) and codifying existing OATS guidance regarding reporting order event times to OATS in milliseconds. The Commission believes that the proposed changes should enhance FINRA’s audit trail and automated surveillance program, promote more consistent trade reporting by members, and aid in the detection of violations of FINRA trade reporting and other rules. The Commission notes that FIF submitted a comment letter containing mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 64 See FIF Letter at 2–3. FINRA Response at 7. 66 See id. FINRA also notes that, pursuant to the original filing, the proposed amendments to the OATS rules will be implemented no later than 45 days after Commission approval. 67 15 U.S.C. 78o–3(b). In approving this proposed rule change, the Commission has considered the proposed rule’s impact on efficiency, competition, and capital formation. See 15 U.S.C. 78c(f). 68 15 U.S.C. 78o–3(b)(6). 65 See VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:13 Mar 04, 2014 Jkt 232001 primarily clarifying questions and that FINRA submitted a response addressing these clarifying questions. The FIF Letter requested a substantive change to the proposal—that the ORF closing time remain 8 p.m. In its response in Amendment No. 1, FINRA proposed keeping the ORF closing time of 8 p.m. For the foregoing reasons, the Commission finds that the proposed rule change is consistent with Section 15A(b)(6) of the Act and the rules and regulations thereunder applicable to a national securities association.69 IV. Solicitation of Comments Interested persons are invited to submit written data, views, and arguments concerning the foregoing, including whether Amendment No. 1 is consistent with the Act.

Accelerated Approval of Proposed Rule Change, as Modified by Amendment No. 1 The Commission finds good cause for approving the proposed rule change, as amended by Amendment No. 1 prior to the 30th day after the date of publication of notice in the Federal Register. Amendment No. 1 proposes maintaining the current 8:00 p.m. closing time of the ORF and includes technical amendments to update crossreferences and make other nonsubstantive changes to Rules 6282, 7130 and 7140 relating to the ADF as the result of the approval of SR–FINRA– 2013–053. Accordingly, the Commission finds good cause for approving the proposed rule change, as amended, on an accelerated basis, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act.70 VI. Conclusion It is therefore ordered, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act,71 that the proposed rule change (SR–FINRA– 2013–050), is hereby approved, as modified by Amendment No. 1 on an accelerated basis.
