Section 403 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act repeals, as of July 21, the private adviser exemption in Section 203(b)(3) of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 and will require advisers relying on that exemption (including advisers to many hedge funds and other private funds) to register with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

On April 8, in a letter from SEC Division of Investment Management Associate Director Robert Plaze to the North American Securities Administrators Association, Inc., Mr. Plaze noted that "given the time needed for advisers to register and come fully into compliance with the obligations applicable to them once they are registered, we expect that the Commission will consider extending the date by which these advisers must register and come into compliance with the obligations of a registered adviser until the first quarter of 2012."
