The commissioner may from time to time make, amend and rescind such rules, forms, and orders as are necessary to carry out the provisions of this law, including rules and forms governing applications and reports, and defining any terms, whether or not used in this law, insofar as the definitions are not inconsistent with the provisions of this law. For the purpose of rules and forms, the commissioner may classify securities, persons, and matters within his jurisdiction, and may prescribe different requirements for different classes. The commissioner may in his discretion waive any requirement of any rule or form in situations where in his opinion such requirement is not
necessary in the public interest or for the protection of investors.
