Similarly, ICE Clear Europe has established appropriate standards for determining the eligibility of contracts submitted to the Clearing House for clearing, and ICE Clear Europe believes that its existing systems are appropriately scalable to handle physical delivery under the European Government Bond Contracts, which is generally similar from an operational perspective to delivery under other ICE Futures Europe bond contracts currently cleared by ICE Clear Europe. For the reasons noted above, ICE Clear Europe believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with the requirements of Section 17A of the Act 8 and regulations thereunder applicable to it. B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition ICE Clear Europe does not believe the proposed rule change will have any impact, or impose any burden, on competition not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the Act. ICE Clear Europe is adopting the amendments to the Delivery Procedures in connection with European Government Bond Contracts traded on the ICE Futures Europe market. ICE Clear Europe believes that such contracts will provide additional opportunities for interested market participants to engage in trading activity relating to European government bond futures. ICE Clear Europe does not believe the adoption of related Delivery Procedures amendments would adversely affect access to clearing for clearing members or their customers, or otherwise adversely affect competition in clearing services. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES C.
