Microcap Initiative - Proposed Recommendation Rule

NASDR is filing with the SEC a proposed rule change to adopt new NASD Rule 2315, which requires members to review current issuer information prior to recommending a transaction to a customer in an over-the-counter ("OTC") equity security. Additionally, the proposed rule change would amend NASD Rule 6740 to permit members to submit a certification to the Association that states that the member has conducted a review of specified information and has fulfilled its SEC Rule 15c2-11 obligations for documents that currently reside on the SEC's Electronic Data Gathering and Retrieval System ("EDGAR") database.
