References for the Form 15 filing

The Caveat: I believe these are the rules to which the Form 15 refers, but I could be completely mistaken and will welcome any correction. You can find the PDF version of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934 here, which is very cumbersome, or you can find the electronic version here under the heading, Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
