FINRA has filed a proposed rule change to Rule 4210 for Covered Agency Transactions, further extending the date of implementation to October 25, 2023.
The new proposed rule change was filed for immediate effectiveness by FINRA:
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 pending the stay, to adjust the implementation of the requirements pursuant to SR-FINRA-2015-036. As such, FINRA is proposing to extend the April 24, 2023 implementation date to October 25, 2023.
In simpler terms, the amendment to Rule 4210 has been approved, but the SEC has issued a stay until issues are resolved.
