DTC filed the proposed rule change pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 2 and Rule 19b–4(f)(1) 3 thereunder so that the proposal was effective upon filing with the Commission. The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons. I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The proposed rule change clarifies recent changes to DTC’s Deposit Service procedures. II. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change In its filing with the Commission, DTC included statements concerning the purpose of and basis for the proposed rule change and discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule change. The text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. DTC has prepared summaries, set forth in Sections A, B, 1 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1).

Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change The proposed rule change clarifies recent changes that DTC made to its Deposit Service procedures.5 As part of those changes, DTC requires participants to certify to DTC that the participant screened the name of the party in whose name a deposited security certificate is registered against the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets and Control (‘‘OFAC’’) list of Specially Designated Nationals and against OFAC’s regulations and that there were no matches identified by such comparison.
