WASHINGTON — Bond Dealers of America released a guide Thursday designed to help the group’s members comply with recently-approved guidance from the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board regarding certain disclosures underwriters will have to make to muni bond issuers under the board’s fair dealing rule.

The guide includes an eight-page summary of the interpretative notice, which takes effect Aug. 2, and explanations of underwriters’ new responsibilities, including requirements that they disclose overviews of their role, compensation, conflicts of interest and information about complex muni-bond financings.
