No Taping, Please

By Editorial Staff

The Securities and Exchange Commission has ruled that broker dealers have no "compelling reasons" to be excused from the NASD Regulation's taping rule.

Commissioners held that there could be no exemption from a requirement to tape customer conversations with employees who had been formerly employed by firms that had been disciplined.

Whitehall Wellington Investments had wanted an exemption because of questions over whether the policy would clash with state laws requiring the consent of both parties.

The firm also held that the administrative resources required for following the policy would be burdensome.
