FINRA Files Proposed Changes to Arbitration Code
FINRA has filed with the SEC a proposed rule change to amend Rules 12100(r), 12506(a), and 12902(a) of the Code of Arbitration Procedure for Customer Disputes (“Customer Code”) and Rule 13100(r) of the Code of Arbitration Procedure for Industry Disputes (“Industry Code”) to amend the definition of “associated person,” streamline a case administration procedure, and clarify that customers could be assessed hearing session fees based on their own claims for relief in connection with an industry claim. According to the accompanying releases, these amendments are necessitated by inadvertent deletions of language from the previous Code.
Comments are due 21 days after publication in the Federal Register.
