Board releases Small Entity Compliance Guide for Regulation R
For immediate release
The Federal Reserve Board on Friday released its Small Entity Compliance Guide for Regulation R. Regulation R, adopted jointly by the Board and the Securities and Exchange Commission in September 2007, implements certain of the key exceptions for banks from the definition of the term "broker" under Section 3(a)(4) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act. The Regulatory Flexibility Act requires the Board to prepare small entity compliance guides for final rules such as Regulation R. The guide provides a general description of the regulation and contact information for small entities with questions regarding compliance.
Attached is the Board’s Small Entity Compliance Guide for Regulation R.
