MSRB Request for Comment on Compliance Support

Summary

SIFMA provides comments to the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB) in response to request for public comment on its approach to enhancing compliance support, a long-term strategic priority for the organization. SIFMA appreciates the opportunity to address certain concerns and present our views on how the MSRB can contribute to resolving them: (1) the need for more published MSRB interpretive guidance, (2) the need for the MSRB and examiners to work together to articulate guidance on the recordkeeping that will be required to demonstrate compliance with MSRB rules, (3) the need to increase the usefulness of MSRB compliance resources, including enhancing the MSRB website, simplifying email subscriptions, and improving the accessibility and content of educational materials and events, and (4) the need for MSRB participation at relevant industry conferences.
