Rule 131. Comparison—Requirements for Reporting Trades and Providing Facilities

(a) Duty to Report Transactions

It shall be the duty of every member to report each transaction made by him on the Floor as promptly as possible, but no later than one hour after the close of business on that day to his office, to the office of the member or member organization clearing for him or his member organization, or to the office of his principal, as the case may be, where adequate facilities to effect comparison are maintained. The Exchange may change the time requirements specified herein as it may determine.

(b) Facilities for Comparison

Every clearing member and member organization shall maintain adequate facilities for the comparison of transactions, and shall keep them available during such hours as to enable other members and member organizations reasonably to complete comparisons as required by the Rules.

(c) Availability of Records

It shall be the duty of every member to have available, at his office, his records with regard to transactions effected by him on the Floor in order to enable other members and member organizations with whom or for whom transactions were made to make inquiry concerning such transactions. The requirements of this paragraph (c) notwithstanding, every member who effects transactions on the Floor shall have available on the Floor records of orders, original Floor Reports (or a facsimile thereof) and all other pertinent data relating to transactions that are uncompared from the previous business day.

(d) Availability of Representative

Every member and member organization shall have a representative qualified to answer inquiries regarding orders and trades present in the office until at least 4:30 p.m. every business day.
