Section 19(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’) (15 U.S.C. 78s(b)) requires each self-regulatory organization (‘‘SRO’’) to file with the Commission copies of any proposed rule, or any proposed change in, addition to, or deletion from the rules of such SRO. Rule 19b–4 (17 CFR 240.19b– 4) implements the requirements of Section 19(b) by requiring the SROs to file their proposed rule changes on Form 19b–4 and by clarifying which actions taken by SROs are deemed proposed rule changes and so must be filed pursuant to Section 19(b). The collection of information is designed to provide the Commission with the information necessary to determine, as required by the Act, whether the proposed rule change is consistent with the Act and the rules thereunder.

I. Introduction On March 17, 2011, The Options Clearing Corporation (‘‘OCC’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change SR–OCC–2011–03 pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’).1 The proposed rule change was published for comment in the Federal Register on April 7, 2011.2 The Commission received three comment letters on the proposal, including OCC’s letter responding to one of the commenters.3 This order approves the proposal. II. Description of the Proposal The purpose of this rule change is to expand OCC’s internal cross-margining program to permit a pair of affiliated clearing members to establish a crossmargining account (‘‘Internal NonProprietary Cross-Margining Account’’) in which securities and security futures that are cleared by OCC in its capacity as a securities clearing agency may be cross-margined with commodity futures and options on such futures that are cleared by OCC in its capacity as a derivatives clearing organization (‘‘DCO’’) registered with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (‘‘CFTC’’) under the Commodity Exchange Act (‘‘CEA’’). In 2004, the CFTC and the Commission 4 approved OCC’s proposal to create an ‘‘internal cross-margining’’ program under which an OCC clearing member could elect to cross-margin a non-proprietary futures account of a 1 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1).

At OCC, the securities and futures positions of all market professionals with cross-margined accounts at the clearing member are combined in a single Internal NonProprietary Cross-Margining Account of the clearing member at OCC. The existing program, which has operated successfully since 2004, requires that the same clearing member clear the securities and futures positions. In contrast, the existing cross-margining programs between OCC and other DCOs, such as the clearing division of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (‘‘CME’’) and ICE Clear U.S., permit crossmargining where the member of the futures clearing organization is a different entity from its affiliate that is an OCC clearing member. The purpose of this proposed rule change is to expand the existing internal crossmargining program in an analogous way so that it would permit an Internal NonProprietary Cross-Margining Account to be maintained at OCC jointly by a pair of affiliated clearing members that clear transactions in securities options and in futures products through two different entities. In order to participate, both OCC clearing members would have to be affiliates of one another and would have to be registered as both a futures commission merchant under the CEA and as a broker-dealer under the Act. OCC’s current internal crossmargining program does not provide for internal cross-margining accounts to be carried jointly by a pair of affiliated clearing members because OCC did not believe in 2004 that there was any clearing member demand for such a service. Recently, however, OCC has learned that there is demand for such a service. Under OCC’s current proposal, two affiliated clearing members will jointly maintain an Internal NonProprietary Cross-Margining Account. The clearing member that normally clears transactions in securities options would submit transactions in eligible securities options to the account for clearance, and the clearing member that normally clears transactions in futures 5 As set forth in OCC’s By-Laws, a market professional could be a market-maker, specialist or person acting in a similar capacity on a securities exchange, or a member of a futures exchange trading for its own account. A non-proprietary market professional is any market professional that is required to be treated as a ‘‘customer’’ under the CEA, and therefore excludes any market professional that is affiliated with the carrying clearing member in a way that would cause its account to be treated as a ‘‘proprietary account’’ under Section 1.3(y) of the CFTC’s regulations.
