Exchange proposes to: (1) Require a request for review of a transaction 
to be made by only one of the following methods: Telephone; facsimile; 
or e-mail (in order to simplify the process for those making requests); 
(2) require such a request to be made within thirty minutes of the 
trade in question, or within forty-five minutes of the trade if that 
trade occurred within the first thirty minutes of trading in the 
product involved in the trade (in order to give more time for requests 
which, based on the Exchange's experience so far, is necessary); (3) 
give the individual(s) who reviews transactions under the Rule the 
label of ``designated official,'' so that they need not be officers of 
the Exchange; and (4) eliminate the requirement that the notification 
to the parties to the trade of the official's determination be given in 
writing and by the official. The aforementioned changes labeled (1) and 
(4) are based on, and conform CBSX Rule 52.4 to NYSE Arca Equities 
Rules 7.10(b) and 7.10(c)(1), respectively.

promote just and equitable principles of trade, serve to remove 
impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and 
a national market system, and to protect investors and the public 
interest.
