3150. Reporting Requirements for Clearing Firms
This rule is no longer applicable. NASD Rule 3150 has been superseded by FINRA Rule 4540. Please consult the appropriate FINRA Rule.
(a) Each member that is a clearing firm or self-clearing firm shall be required to report to NASD in such format as NASD may require, prescribed data pertaining to the member and any member broker-dealer for which it clears. A clearing firm or self-clearing firm may enter into an agreement with a third party pursuant to which the third party agrees to fulfill the obligations of a clearing firm or self-clearing firm under this Rule. Notwithstanding the existence of such an agreement, each clearing firm or self-clearing firm remains responsible for complying with the requirements of this Rule.
(b) Each member that is a clearing firm is required to report prescribed data to NASD under this Rule in such a manner as to enable NASD to distinguish between data pertaining to all proprietary and customer accounts of an introducing member and data pertaining to all proprietary and customer accounts of any member for which the introducing member is acting as an intermediary in obtaining clearing services from a clearing firm. The reporting requirements of this paragraph (b) shall apply to the proprietary and customer accounts of members that have established an intermediary clearing arrangement with an introducing member on or after February 20, 2006.
(c) Pursuant to the Rule 9600 Series, NASD may in exceptional and unusual circumstances, taking into consideration all relevant factors, exempt a member or class of members unconditionally or on specified terms from any or all of the provisions of this Rule that it deems appropriate.
