The text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. Nasdaq has prepared summaries, set forth in Sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant aspects of such statements. A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 1. Purpose Nasdaq is proposing to correct a typographical error and to update a rule reference found in Rule 5635(e)(4). Specifically, Nasdaq proposes to delete an extraneous period in that rule and to correct a reference to that paragraph, which currently incorrectly identifies it as paragraph (5). 2. Statutory Basis Nasdaq believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with the provisions of Section 6 of the Act,5 in general and with Sections 6(b)(5) of the Act,6 in particular in that it is designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to foster cooperation and coordination with persons engaged in regulating, clearing, settling, processing information with respect to, and facilitating transactions in securities, 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. The proposed rule change is consistent with these provisions in that it will eliminate confusion about Nasdaq rules by updating an inaccurate cross-reference, without changing the substance of the rules.

The proposed rule change will have no impact on competition as it merely eliminates potential confusion by clarifying the existing rule without changing its substance. C. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others Written comments were neither solicited nor received. III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action The foregoing rule change has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 7 and Rule 19b–4(f)(6) 8 thereunder because the proposal does not: (i) Significantly affect the protection of investors or the public interest; (ii) impose any significant burden on competition; and (iii) by its terms, become operative for 30 days from the date on which it was filed, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate if consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest.9 A proposed rule change filed under Rule 19b–4(f)(6) normally may not become operative prior to 30 days after the date of filing. However, Rule 19b– 4(f)(6)(iii) 10 permits the Commission to designate a shorter time if such action is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest. The Exchange has requested that the Commission waive the 30-day operative delay period. The Commission believes that waiver of the 30-day operative delay period is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest. Specifically, the Commission believes that the proposal would eliminate confusion in the Exchange’s rules and provide clarification to the public. For these reasons, the Commission believes that waiving the 30-day operative delay is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest, and designates the 7 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A). CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6). 9 In addition, Rule 19b–4(f)(6)(iii) requires the Exchange to give the Commission written notice of the Exchange’s intent to file the proposed rule change, along with a brief description and text of the proposed rule change, at least five business days prior to the date of filing of the proposed rule change, or such shorter time as designated by the Commission.

Purpose The purpose of the proposed rule change is to clarify the current continuing education requirements for registered persons based upon their registration with the Exchange, and to adopt a new continuing education requirement for Series 56 registered persons (‘‘Proprietary Traders’’). The Exchange also proposes to adopt a fee for the new continuing education program applicable to Proprietary Traders. The Exchange adopted the Proprietary Trader registration in 2011, working with various other exchanges and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (‘‘FINRA’’). At this time, the Exchange is proposing a new Proprietary Trader continuing education program which will be administered by FINRA. The new program, the S501, is intended to address the specific continuing education of Proprietary Traders, based on the content outline for the Series 56 exam, which covers the main categories of rules and regulations generally applicable to such persons.3 The S501 is required for persons who are registered as Proprietary Traders and do not maintain any other registration. Individuals that are registered under any other registration are required to maintain the continuing educations [sic] obligations associated with such registrations. For example, an 3 These generally include recordkeeping and recording requirements, types and characteristics of securities and investments, trading practices and display execution and trading systems. See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 65054 (Aug. 8, 2011), 76 FR 50277 (Aug. 12, 2011) (SR–ISE–2011– 36). PO 00000 Frm 00071 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 57907 individual that engages solely in proprietary trading activities but has passed the Series 7 and is registered as a General Securities Representative will be required to continue taking the Series 7 continuing education program (S101). Although such an individual may be engaging in the same activities as an individual registered as a Proprietary Trader, the Series 7 examination is more comprehensive and covers topics that the Series 56 does not. Thus, the Exchange believes that this individual should complete the continuing education associated with the Series 7 because this covers all aspects of the individual’s registration. The introduction of the S501 allows the Exchange to tailor its continuing education requirements more closely to the duties of individuals who have registered with the Exchange as Proprietary Traders after passing the Series 56. More specifically, the Exchange believes allowing individuals engaging solely in proprietary trading who take the Series 56 and register as Proprietary Traders to complete a separate continuing education program than those Proprietary Traders who passed the Series 7 and maintain a General Securities Representative registration is appropriate given that all individuals who engage solely in proprietary trading have the option of taking either test. In comparison to the more comprehensive Series 7, the Series 56 examination is more closely tailored to the practice of proprietary trading. As such, the Exchange believes a Series 56 continuing education program should be tailored as well. At the same time, if an individual who has passed the Series 7 would like to retain a General Securities Representative registration, the Exchange believes it is appropriate they [sic] continue to be required to complete the broader continuing education program, which covers all aspects of this registration. The Exchange also proposes to amend Rule 604(a) to specify the required Regulatory Element for each category of registered persons. Currently, Rule 604(a) provides that no Member shall permit any registered person to continue to, and no registered person shall continue to, perform duties as a registered person, unless such person has complied with the continuing education requirements of paragraph (a). Each registered person shall complete the Regulatory Element of the continuing education program on the occurrence of their [sic] second registration anniversary date(s), and every three years thereafter or as otherwise prescribed by the Exchange.

II. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Purpose of, and 
Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

    In its filing with the Commission, Nasdaq included statements 
concerning the purpose of and basis for the proposed rule change and 
discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule change. The 
text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in 
Item IV below. Nasdaq has prepared summaries, set forth in Sections A, 
B, and C below, of the most significant aspects of such statements.

A. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Purpose of, and 
Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

1. Purpose
    Nasdaq is proposing to correct a typographical error and to update 
a rule reference found in Rule 5635(e)(4). Specifically, Nasdaq 
proposes to delete an extraneous period in that rule and to correct a 
reference to that paragraph, which currently incorrectly identifies it 
as paragraph (5).
2. Statutory Basis
    Nasdaq believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with 
the provisions of Section 6 of the Act,\5\ in general and with Sections 
6(b)(5) of the Act,\6\ in particular in that it is designed to prevent 
fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, to promote just and 
equitable principles of trade, to foster cooperation and coordination 
with persons engaged in regulating, clearing, settling, processing 
information with respect to, and facilitating transactions in 
securities, 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. The proposed rule change is 
consistent with these provisions in that it will eliminate confusion 
about Nasdaq rules by updating an inaccurate cross-reference, without 
changing the substance of the rules.

    \6\ 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

B. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement on Burden on Competition

    Nasdaq does not believe that the proposed rule change will result 
in any burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate in 
furtherance of the purposes of the Act, as amended. The proposed rule 
change will have no impact on competition as it merely eliminates 
potential confusion by clarifying the existing rule without changing 
its substance.

C. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement on Comments on the Proposed 
Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others

    Written comments were neither solicited nor received.

III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for 
Commission Action

    The foregoing rule change has become effective pursuant to Section 
19(b)(3)(A) of the Act \7\ and Rule 19b-4(f)(6) \8\ thereunder because 
the proposal does not: (i) Significantly affect the protection of 
investors or the public interest; (ii) impose any significant burden on 
competition; and (iii) by its terms, become operative for 30 days from 
the date on which it was filed, or such shorter time as the Commission 
may designate if consistent with the protection of investors and the 
public interest.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A).
    \8\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4(f)(6).
    \9\ In addition, Rule 19b-4(f)(6)(iii) requires the Exchange to 
give the Commission written notice of the Exchange's intent to file 
the proposed rule change, along with a brief description and text of 
the proposed rule change, at least five business days prior to the 
date of filing of the proposed rule change, or such shorter time as 
designated by the Commission. The Exchange has satisfied this 
requirement.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A proposed rule change filed under Rule 19b-4(f)(6) normally may 
not become operative prior to 30 days after the date of filing. 
However, Rule 19b-4(f)(6)(iii) \10\ permits the Commission to designate 
a shorter time if such action is consistent with the protection of 
investors and the public interest. The Exchange has requested that the 
Commission waive the 30-day operative delay period. The Commission 
believes that waiver of the 30-day operative delay period is consistent 
with the protection of investors and the public interest. Specifically, 
the Commission believes that the proposal would eliminate confusion in 
the Exchange's rules and provide clarification to the public. For these 
reasons, the Commission believes that waiving the 30-day operative 
delay is consistent with the protection of investors and the public 
interest, and designates the proposed rule change to be operative upon 
filing with the Commission.\11\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4(f)(6)(iii).
    \11\ For purposes only of waiving the operative delay for this 
proposal, the Commission has considered the proposed rule's impact 
on efficiency, competition, and capital formation. See 15 U.S.C. 
78c(f).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule 
change, the Commission summarily may temporarily suspend such rule 
change if it appears to the Commission that such action is necessary or 
appropriate in the public interest, for the protection of investors, or 
otherwise in furtherance of the purposes of the Act.\12\
