SEC RIN: 3235-AL14 Publication ID: Spring 2013 
Title: Removal of Certain References to Credit Ratings Under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934  
Abstract: Section 939A of the Dodd Frank Act requires the Commission to remove any references to credit ratings from its regulations and to substitute such standards of creditworthiness as the Commission determines to be appropriate. The Commission proposed to amend certain rules and one form under the Exchange Act applicable to broker-dealer financial responsibility, distributions of securities, and confirmations of transactions. The Commission also requested comment on potential standards of creditworthiness for purposes of Exchange Act sections 3(a)(41) and 3(a)(53), which define the terms "mortgage related security" and "small business related security," respectively, as the Commission considers how to implement section 939(e) of the Dodd Frank Act.
