If the parties declare that the exchanges are “blocked” pursuant to an abandonment agreement (see section 200), the 20-minute rule does not apply. A204.7: The structure of the reports of the exporting parties does not change the RQSR process or the obligations of members with respect to the contracts of engagement. The QSR agreement is an agreement entered into by the National Securities Clearing Corporation and, for FINRA`s purposes, it is simply established that one commercial party can send the trading to clearing on behalf of the other party to the trading. An assignment agreement as defined by FINRA () is required for a member to disclose business information to FINRA on behalf of another member, even if the parties have entered into a QSR agreement. As part of the informed business reporting structure, members may continue to accept that another member may notify and block transactions on its behalf in accordance with the requirements set out in Section 200 (Report on Behalf of Another Member (“Give-Up Relations”). The task of ETD is the only one to act as a genuine negotiation between clients and exporting brokers, then a novation of this trading, from the client to the countervailing broker, in which a back-to-back transaction between the countervailing broker and the client occurs. A200.1: Yes. A member may authorize another member to notify and block transactions on his behalf to a TRF, ADF or ORF, provided that both parties have entered into an agreement (a “give-up” agreement) as defined by the FINRA (FINRA Transparency Services Uniform Reporting Agreement) and have submitted this agreement to the FINA FACILITY (or entities) for which the relationship “give-up” applies. See rules 6282 (h), 6380A (h), 6380B (g) and 6622 (h); NASD Members` Warning: Notice to all participants in the TRF, ADF and other NASD facilities via the AGU and QSR relationships (25 January 2007). The abandonment of agreements can only be used if the member who is “abandoned” or on whose behalf the report is presented is a genuine exporting part of trade. In addition, a member who is “abandoned” must have a valid MPID that the reporting member can use if he reports trades on his or her behalf. Acceptance of abandonment is sometimes referred to as give-in.
Once a trade is actually executed, it can be called “give-in.” However, the use of the term “give” is much rarer. When a report is forwarded to a FINRA facility only for audiotapes, it is not necessary for the member to be subject to the reporting requirement to identify the trading partners in the exchange report. For example, two FINRA members (BD1 and BD2) trade and, in accordance with the rules governing commercial relations, BD1 is subject to the reporting requirement.
