Discussion The Commission continues to believe that the Plan, as proposed to be amended, is an achievement in cooperation among the SRO participants. The Plan, as amended, will reduce unnecessary regulatory duplication by allocating to the designated SRO the responsibility for certain options-related market surveillance matters that would otherwise be performed by multiple SROs. The Plan promotes efficiency by reducing costs to firms that are members of more than one of the SRO participants. In addition, because the SRO participants coordinate their regulatory functions in accordance with the Plan, the Plan promotes, and will continue to promote, investor protection. Under paragraph (c) of Rule 17d–2, the Commission may, after appropriate notice and comment, declare a plan, or any part of a plan, effective. In this instance, the Commission believes that appropriate notice and comment can take place after the proposed amendment is effective. The primary purpose of the amendment is to add Topaz as a Participant to the Plan. By declaring it effective today, the amended Plan can become effective and be implemented without undue delay.17 In addition, the Commission notes that the prior version of this Plan was published for comment, and the Commission did not receive any comments thereon.18 Finally, the Commission does not believe that the amendment to the Plan raises any new regulatory issues that the Commission has not previously considered. VI. Conclusion This order gives effect to the amended Plan submitted to the Commission that is contained in File No. 4–551. It is therefore ordered, pursuant to Section 17(d) of the Act, that the Plan, as amended by and between MKT, BATS, C2, CBOE, ISE, FINRA, Arca, NASDAQ, BOX, BX, Phlx, MIAX, and Topaz, filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 17d–2 on July 2, 2013 is hereby approved and declared effective. It is further ordered that those SRO participants that are not the DOSR as to a particular common member are 17 On July 26, 2013, the Commission granted Topaz’s application for registration as a national securities exchange.
