Wall Street panel to propose guidelines for e-mail

The stockbroking industry’s two self-policing groups, NYSE Regulation and NASD, were expected Thursday 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 NYSE Regulation and NASD representatives, Wall Street firm members 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 NYSE Regulation who led the committee.
