Need for Correction

In FR Document No. 2011-8897 beginning on page 20741 as published on Wednesday, April 13, 2011, the Commission issued Release No. 34-64226, an order approving the proposed rule change by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (“FINRA”) to amend Rule 13806 of the Code of Arbitration Procedure for Industry Disputes (“Industry Code”). Commission staff discovered that a statement in the introduction section of that order mischaracterized the nature of the rule change which was described accurately in the remainder of the order. The staff believes this mischaracterization was the result of an editing error.

This correction does not substantively amend the Commission's approval order. The sole purpose of this correction is to rectify the error in the introduction section and alleviate any potential confusion. The introduction section of this approval order is being republished with the correction.

Correction of Publication

Accordingly, the Introduction of the approval order is republished to correct a statement therein, as follows:

The proposed rule change was published for comment in the Federal Register on February 22, 2011.[3] The Commission did not receive any comments on the proposal. This order approves the proposed change.
