Wall Street to get email guidelines

N.Y.S.E. Regulation and NASD, are expected today to release proposed guidelines for the regulation of written electronic communications, including internal and external exchanges.

The guidelines represent nearly two years of work by a committee of N.Y.S.E. Regulation and NASD, Wall Street firms and lawyers, as well as contributions by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

They are intended to clarify how forms of communication unimaginable when the rules were last revised, in 1998, fit into existing regulations, said Grace Vogel, the executive vice president of N.Y.S.E. Regulation who led the committee. (NYT)
