OMB 3235-0273

Rule 17Ad-10, 17 CFR 240.17Ad-10, under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, requires a registered transfer agent to create and maintain minimum information on securityholders’ ownership of an issue of securities for which it performs transfer agent functions, including the purchase, transfer and redemption of securities. In addition, the rule also requires transfer agents that maintain securityholder records to keep certificate detail that has been deleted from those records for a minimum of six years and to maintain and keep current an accurate record of the number of shares or principle dollar amount of debt securities that the issuer has authorized to be outstanding (a “control book”). These recordkeeping requirements assist in the creation and maintenance of accurate securityholder records, the ability to research errors, and ensure the transfer agent is aware of the number of securities that are properly authorized by the issuer, thereby avoiding overissuance. Transfer agents are required to establish written standards for the acceptance or rejection of guarantees of securities transfers from eligible guarantor institutions. Transfer agents are also required to establish procedures, including written guidelines where appropriate, to ensure that those standards are used in determining whether to accept or reject guarantees from eligible guarantor institutions.
