I. Introduction On April 28, 2016, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (‘‘FINRA’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘SEC’’ or ‘‘Commission’’), pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’) 1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 a proposed rule change to amend the By-Laws of FINRA’s regulatory subsidiary, FINRA Regulation, Inc. (‘‘FINRA Regulation’’), to expand the size of the National Adjudicatory Council (‘‘NAC’’) to 15 members, with the number of nonindustry members exceeding the number of industry members; lengthen the terms of office of future NAC members to four years; and update the process used for sending and counting ballots in the event of a contested nomination and election to fill certain NAC industry member seats. The proposed rule change was published for comment in the Federal Register on 1 15 2 17 PO 00000 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4. Frm 00086 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 May 13, 2016.3 The Commission received four comment letters on the proposal.4 Thereafter, FINRA submitted a letter in response to the comment letters.5 This order grants approval of the proposed rule change. II. Description of the Proposal 6 The FINRA Regulation By-Laws establish the composition of the NAC,7 the terms of its members, and the process by which members are selected. The NAC is currently composed of fourteen members.8 The number of NonIndustry Members, which must include at least three Public Members, equals the number of Industry Members.9 The 3 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 77786 (May 9, 2016), 81 FR 29929 (May 13, 2016) (‘‘Notice’’). 4 See Letters from Steven B. Caruso, Esq., Maddox Hargett Caruso, P.C., dated May 9, 2016 (‘‘Caruso Letter’’); David T. Bellaire, Esq., Executive Vice President & General Counsel, Financial Services Institute, dated May 19, 2016 (‘‘FSI Letter’’); Hugh Berkson, Public Investors Arbitration Bar Association, dated June 2, 2016 (‘‘PIABA Letter’’); and Christopher E. Berman, Barry University, dated June 2, 2016 (‘‘Berman Letter’’). 5 See Letter from Gary Dernelle, Associate General Counsel, FINRA, dated June 13, 2016 (‘‘FINRA Letter’’). 6 A full description of the proposal can be found in the Notice. See Notice, supra note 3. 7 The NAC acts on behalf of FINRA in several capacities and its powers are authorized by the ByLaws of FINRA Regulation and FINRA’s Code of Procedure. The NAC presides over disciplinary matters appealed to or called for review by the NAC. The NAC also acts, when requested, in statutory disqualification and membership proceedings; considers the appeals of members seeking exemptive relief; and retains the authority to review decisions proposed in other proceedings as set forth in the Code of Procedure. For most matters that the NAC considers, it prepares a proposed written decision, which becomes final FINRA action if the Board does not call the matter for review. See Notice, supra note 3. 8 See FINRA Regulation By-Laws, Article V (National Adjudicatory Council), Section 5.2(a) (Number of Members and Qualifications). 9 Id. A ‘‘Non-Industry Member’’ of the NAC includes any Public Member, an officer or employee of an issuer of securities listed on a market for which FINRA provides regulation, an officer or employee of an issuer of unlisted securities that are traded in the over-the-counter market, or any individual who would not otherwise fall within the definition of an Industry Member. See FINRA Regulation By-Laws, Article I (Definitions), paragraph (ee). A ‘‘Public Member’’ generally is a Non-Industry Member who has no material business relationship with a broker or dealer or a self-regulatory organization registered under the Act. See FINRA Regulation By-Laws, Article I (Definitions), paragraph (hh). An ‘‘Industry Member’’ generally includes a person who is or served in the prior year as an officer, director, employee or controlling person of a broker-dealer; is an officer, director or employee of an entity that owns a material equity interest in a broker-dealer; owns personally a material equity interest in a broker-dealer; provides professional services to broker-dealers, or to a director, officer, or employee of a broker-dealer in their professional capacity, where the revenues from such services meet material thresholds; or is or served in the prior year as a consultant, employee or provider of E:\FR\FM\23JNN1.SGM 23JNN1
