Specified Activity includes cash trades, next day settling trades, as-of trades compared or recorded on T+3 (including trades received after the applicable T+2 cut-off time), and other similar transactions. III. Discussion Section 19(b) of the Act directs the Commission to approve a proposed rule change of a self-regulatory organization if it finds that such proposed rule change is consistent with the requirements of the Act and the rules and regulations thereunder applicable to such organization. Section 17A(b)(3)(F) of the Act requires that the rules of a clearing agency be designed to promote the prompt and accurate clearance and settlement of securities transactions and to assure the safeguarding of securities and funds which are in its custody or control or for which it is responsible.13 The Commission believes that NSCC’s rule change is consistent with this section because it should facilitate the prompt and accurate clearance and settlement of securities by expanding the types of trades eligible for inclusion in settlement through CNS. In addition, the proposed rule change should help assure the safeguarding of securities and funds in NSCC’s custody or control or for which it is responsible by enabling NSCC to more accurately determine and collect collateral to cover the potential additional exposures resulting from trades that are processed on a settlement cycle shorter than three days. IV. Conclusion On the basis of the foregoing, the Commission finds that the proposed rule change is consistent with the requirements of the Act and in particular section 17A of the Act and the rules and regulations thereunder. It is therefore ordered, pursuant to section 19(b)(2) of the Act, that the proposed rule change (File No. SR– NSCC–2006–09) be and hereby is approved. rmajette on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES1 For the Commission by the Division of Market Regulation, pursuant to delegated authority.14 Nancy M.
