Commission Order Scheduling Filing of Statements on Review

On Jan. 11, 2024, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approved a rule change that would prohibit compensated non-attorney representatives from representing parties in the DRS forum. On Jan. 19, 2024, FINRA received notice that, pursuant to Rule 431 of the SEC’s Rules of Practice, 17 CFR 201.431, the SEC will review the delegated action, thereby staying the Approval Order. On April 8, 2024, the SEC published an Order Scheduling Filing of Statements on Review stating that on or before May 8, 2024, any party or other person may file a statement in support of, or in opposition to, the action made pursuant to delegated authority. The Approval Order remains stayed pending further order of the SEC. Please see SR-FINRA-2023-013 for more information.
