Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 136 / Tuesday, July 17, 2007 / Notices (l)(6)(D)(II)–(III) to make sure that an entity that advises an index provider or calculator and related entities has in place procedures designed to prevent the use and dissemination of material non-public information regarding the index underlying the ETF. In approving this proposal, the Commission relied on Phlx’s representation that its surveillance procedures are adequate to properly monitor the trading of the Trust Shares and IFSs listed pursuant to the proposed new listing standards or traded on a UTP basis. This approval is conditioned on the continuing accuracy of that representation. Acceleration The Commission finds good cause for approving the proposed rule change, as amended, prior to the 30th day after the date of publication of the notice of filing thereof in the Federal Register. The Commission notes that Phlx’s proposal is substantially similar to other proposals that have been approved by the Commission.37 The Commission does not believe that Phlx’s proposal raises any novel regulatory issues and, therefore, that good cause exists for approving the filing before the conclusion of a notice-and-comment period. Accelerated approval of the proposal will expedite the listing and trading of additional ETFs by Phlx, subject to consistent and reasonable standards. Therefore, the Commission finds good cause, consistent with Section 19(b)(2) of the Act,38 to approve the proposed rule change, as amended, on an accelerated basis. V. Conclusion It is therefore ordered, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act,39 that the proposed rule change (SR–Phlx–2007– 20), as amended, be, and it hereby is, approved on an accelerated basis. For the Commission, by the Division of Market Regulation, pursuant to delegated authority.40 J. Lynn Taylor, Assistant Secretary. [FR Doc.
