SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Commission published a final rule at 76 FR 71872, on November 21, 2011, which rescinded rules and forms adopted under the Public Utility Holding Company Act (“PUHCA”),[1] revised other rules and forms to correct outdated references to PUHCA, corrected outdated references due to enactment of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (“the Dodd-Frank Act”), and made other ministerial corrections.[2] Congress repealed PUHCA effective 2006, and the Dodd-Frank Act amended various provisions of the federal securities laws and removed references to PUHCA from those laws.

The final rule contained a typographical error that prevented an amendment to the Code of Federal Regulations.[3] This technical amendment is being published so that the table in 17 CFR 200.800(b) can be updated to reflect that amendment.
