FINRA has filed a rule to extend the effective date of Rule 4210 Covered Agency Transactions from April 26, 2022 to October 26, 2022.
The new deadline for Rule 4210 compliance was filed with immediate effectiveness by FINRA:
…however, the Commission has stated that, in accordance with Rule 431(e) of the Commission’s Rules of Practice, the delegated action approving the Proposed Amendments is stayed until the Commission orders otherwise. FINRA believes it is appropriate, in the interest of regulatory clarity, to adjust the implementation of the requirements pursuant to SR-FINRA-2015-036 pending further action by the Commission on the Proposed Amendments. As such, FINRA is proposing to extend the April 26, 2022 implementation date to October 26, 2022."
So in plain English, the amendments to Rule 4210 have been approved, but the SEC has issued a stay until some issues are resolved.
