Proposed Rule Change to Adopt FINRA Rule 3310 Anti-Money Laundering Compliance Program in the Consolidated FINRA Rulebook

Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (“FINRA”) (f/k/a National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. (“NASD”)) is filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC” or “Commission”) a proposed rule change to adopt (1) NASD Rule 3011 (Anti-Money Laundering Compliance Program) as FINRA Rule 3310 (Anti-Money Laundering Compliance Program), without substantive change; (2) NASD IM-3011-1 (Independent Testing Requirements) as supplementary material to proposed FINRA Rule 3310, subject to certain amendments; and (3) NASD IM-3011-2 (Review of Anti-Money Laundering Compliance Person Information) as supplementary material to proposed FINRA Rule 3310, without substantive change. The proposed rule change would delete Incorporated NYSE Rule 445 (Anti-Money Laundering Compliance Program) in its entirety as duplicative.
