Pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’ or ‘‘Exchange Act’’),1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 notice is hereby given that on October 17, 2013, Chicago Mercantile Exchange Inc. (‘‘CME’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change described in Items I and II below, which Items have been prepared by CME. CME filed the proposal pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act,3 and Rule 19b–4(f)(4)(ii) thereunder,4 so that the proposal was effective upon filing with the Commission. The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons. emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change CME is filing proposed rules changes that are limited to its business as a derivatives clearing organization. The new CME rule simply specifies that CME will discharge any swap data 1 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1).

II. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change In its filing with the Commission, the self-regulatory organization included statements concerning the purpose 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. The self-regulatory organization 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 CME is registered as a derivatives clearing organization (‘‘DCO’’) with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and currently offers clearing services for swaps products. In connection with its business as a DCO clearing swaps, CME is required to make certain reports regarding the swaps it clears to a swap data repository (‘‘SDR’’) registered with the CFTC in accordance with applicable CFTC regulations. The rule that is the subject of this filing, CME Rule 1001, specifies that CME DCO will discharge any applicable swap reporting requirements that it has in its capacity as a DCO clearing swaps by making reports to the CME SDR. CME Rule 1001 was reviewed and affirmatively approved by the CFTC. The scope of CME Rule 1001 is limited to CME’s business as a derivatives clearing organization clearing products under the exclusive jurisdiction of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (‘‘CFTC’’). CME Rule 1001 does not materially impact CME’s security-based swap clearing business in any way. As such, the changes will be effective upon filing. CME believes the rule that is the subject of this filing is consistent with the requirements of the Exchange Act including Section 17A of the Exchange Act.5 The rule simply clarifies how CME will make required swap data reports regarding the swaps its clears in an operationally efficient manner and in accordance with applicable CFTC requirements, and as such it is designed to promote the prompt and accurate 5 15 Jkt 232001 PO 00000 U.S.C. 78q–1. Frm 00080 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 clearance and settlement of securities transactions and, to the extent applicable, derivatives agreements, contracts, and transactions, to assure the safeguarding of securities and funds which are in the custody or control of the clearing agency or for which it is responsible, and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest consistent with Section 17A(b)(3)(F) of the Exchange Act.6 Furthermore, the rule is limited in its effect to swaps offered under CME’s authority to act as a derivatives clearing organization. Swaps fall under the exclusive jurisdiction of the CFTC. As such, the proposed CME changes are limited to CME’s activities as a derivatives clearing organization clearing swaps that are not securitybased swaps; CME notes that the policies of the CFTC with respect to administering the Commodity Exchange Act are comparable to a number of the policies underlying the Exchange Act, such as promoting market transparency for over-the-counter derivatives markets, promoting the prompt and accurate clearance of transactions and protecting investors and the public interest. Because the changes are limited in their effect to swaps offered under CME’s authority to act as a derivatives clearing organization, the changes are properly classified as effecting a change in an existing service of CME that: (a) Primarily affects the clearing operations of CME with respect to products that are not securities, including futures that are not security futures, and swaps that are not securitybased swaps or mixed swaps; and (b) does not significantly affect any securities clearing operations of CME or any rights or obligations of CME with respect to securities clearing or persons using such securities-clearing service. As such, the changes are therefore consistent with the requirements of Section 17A of the Exchange Act 7 and are properly filed under Section 19(b)(3)(A) 8 and Rule 19b–4(f)(4)(ii) 9 thereunder. B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition CME does not believe that the proposed rule change will have any impact, or impose any burden, on competition. As a general matter, CME Rule 1001 should not be seen to have any effect on competition because it does not act as a restraint. 6 15 U.S.C. 78q–1(b)(3)(F).
