The form and content of financial statements required under the Oregon Securities Law;
The circumstances under which consolidated financial statements shall be filed; and
Whether any required financial statements shall be certified by independent or certified public accountants.
Subsection (3) of this section does not apply to any broker-dealer that is subject to the financial reporting requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, to any federal covered investment adviser or to any state investment adviser that has its principal place of business outside this state and is registered with the state in which the state investment adviser’s principal place of business is located.
