Download as PDF 67004 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 241 / Thursday, December 17, 2009 / Notices that the debit process eliminates the need to require a security deposit since the Exchange would debit member accounts at NSCC on a given day of each month and such debiting would eliminate the risk of unpaid invoices because of the large amounts of capital held at NSCC by members. Additionally, the Exchange proposes amending the title of Rule 909 from ‘‘Security for Exchange Fees and Other Claims’’ to ‘‘Collection of Exchange Fees and Other Claims’’ in order to more accurately describe the proposed rule. The Exchange would provide members with a thirty day period, upon approval of this proposal, to provide the Membership Department with an NSCC number, if they have not already provided such a number in the past.10 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that its proposal is consistent with Section 6(b) of the Act 11 in general, and furthers the objectives of Section 6(b)(5) of the Act12 in particular, in that it is designed to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system, and, in general to protect investors and the public interest, by providing its members with an alternative to providing a security deposit to the Exchange while also providing members with an efficient process to pay undisputed or final fees, fines, charges and/or other monetary sanctions or monies due and owing to the Exchange. The Exchange believes that this process of debiting NSCC accounts will ease the member’s administrative burden in paying monthly invoices, avoid overdue balances and provide same day collection from all members, who owe monies to the Exchange, which results in equitable treatment. B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition wwoods2 on DSK1DXX6B1PROD with NOTICES_PART 1 The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will impose any burden on competition not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. not take action to debit a member account until all appeal periods have run and/or all appeal timeframes are exhausted. Any uncontested disciplinary or non-disciplinary actions will be debited, and the amount due will appear on the members invoice prior to the actual NSCC debit. 10 Currently, there are members who have provided the Exchange with an NSCC clearing account number, which accounts are already debited on a monthly basis. 11 15 U.S.C. 78f(b). 12 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5).
