From the comment letter:

"The Institute has very serious concerns about the unintended consequences that are likely to result from the manner in which the Commission has designed its proposed whistleblower program. Our concerns are focused primarily on three aspects of the program that will have the greatest adverse impact on our members: the program’s impact on internal compliance programs; the Commission’s attempt to impose a new obligation on registrants to notify the Commission of all violations of the CEA, irrespective of how immaterial or technical in nature; and deficiencies in the criteria for rewarding whistleblowers. In addition, we recommend that the Commission refine the definition of “original information” and clarify the limits on the prohibition against employers retaliating against whistleblowers. Our concerns are discussed in more detail below."
