SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Listed below are additions to or deletions from the OTC List. This supersedes the last OTC List which was effective February 11,1991. Additions and deletions to the OTC List were last published on January 31,1991 (56 FR 3773). A copy of the complete OTC List is available from the Federal Reserve Banks. The OTC List includes those stocks that meet the criteria in Regulations G, T and U (12 CFR parts 207, 220 and 221, respectively). This determination also affects the applicability of Regulation X (12 CFR part 224). These stocks have the degree of national investor interest, the depth and breadth of market, and the availability of information respecting the stock and its issuer to w arrant regulation in the same fashion as exchange-traded securities. The OTC List also includes any OTC stock designated under a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) rule as qualified for trading in the national market system (NMS security). Additional OTC stocks may be designated as NMS securities in the interim between the Board's quarterly publications. They will become automatically marginable upon the effective date of their MNS designation. The names of these stocks are available at the Board and the SEC and will be incorporated into the Board's next quarterly publication of the OTC List. Also listed below is the one deletion from the Foreign List. There are no new additions to the Foreign L ist which was last published January 31,1991 (56 FR 3773) and effective February 11,1991. Stocks on the Foreign List are eligible for margin treatment at broker-dealers pursuant to a 1990 amendment to Regulation T (12 CFR part 220). The Foreign List includes those stocks that meet the criteria in Regulation T and are eligible for margin at broker-dealers on the same basis as domestic margin securities. A copy of the complete Foreign List is available from the Federal Reserve Banks. Public Comment and Deferred Effective Date The requirements of 5 U.S.C. 553 with respect to notice and public participation were not followed in connection with the issuance of this amendment due to the objective character of the criteria for inclusion and continued inclusion on the Lists specified in 12 CFR 207.6 (a) and (b), 220.17 (a), (b), (c) and (d), and 221.7 (a) and (b). No additional useful information would be gained by public participation. The full requirements of 5 U.S.C. 553 with respect to deferred effective date have not been followed in connection with the issuance of this amendment because the Board finds that it is in the public interest to facilitate investment and credit decisions based in whole or in part upor. the composition of these Lists as soon as possible. The Board has responded to a request by the public and allowed a two-week delay before the Lists are effective.
