SUMMARY: The List of Marginable OTC
Stocks (OTC List) is composed of stocks
traded over-the-counter (OTC) in the
United States that have been determined
by the Board of Governors of the Federal
Reserve System to be subject to the
margin requirements under certain
Federal Reserve regulations. The List of
Foreign Margin Stocks (Foreign List) is
composed of foreign equity securities
that have met the Board's eligibility
criteria under Regulation T. The OTC
List and the Foreign List are published
four times a year by the Board. This
document sets forth additions to and
deletions from the previous OTC List
and the Foreign List.
EFFECTIVE DATE: November 8, 1993.

the stock and its issuer to warrant
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 automatically
become marginable upon the effective
date of their NMS 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 are the additions to
and the deletions from the Foreign List,
which was last published on July 26,
1993 (58 FR 39640), and effective
August 9,1993. 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 securities that meet the criteria in
Regulation T and are eligible for margin
treatment at broker-dealers on the same
basis as domestic margin securities. A
copy of the complete Foreign List is
available from any Federal Reserve
