On August 15th, the SEC issued an order exempting until November 30, 2011, the floor broker operations of broker-dealers with market access that handle orders on a manual basis from the automated controls requirement of Securities Exchange Act Rules 15c3-5(c)(1)(ii)and (c)(2). The SEC received a request from NYSE Amex, NYSE Arca, and the New York Stock Exchange to extend the compliance date for the automated controls requirement because more time is needed to complete the implementation of the automated controls required by Rules 15c3-5(c)(1)(ii) and (c)(2) for orders handled on a manual basis. SEC Release No. 34-65132. See also NYSE Euronext Information Memo 11-24.
