Pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’),1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 notice is hereby given that on October 30, 2015, NASDAQ OMX BX, Inc. (‘‘BX’’ or ‘‘Exchange’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘SEC’’ or ‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change as described in Items I and II, below, which Items have been prepared by the Exchange. The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons. I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The Exchange proposes to adopt business continuity and disaster recovery plans (‘‘BC/DR Plans’’) testing requirements for certain Exchange Members 3 and BX Options Market (‘‘BOM’’) Options Participants 4 (‘‘Participants’’) in connection with 1 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4. 3 The term ‘‘Member’’ is defined as ‘‘any registered broker or dealer that has been admitted to membership in the Exchange.’’ See Exchange Rule 0120(i). 4 The term ‘‘Options Participant’’ is defined as a category of BX Member that is authorized to ‘‘transact business on BX Options via the Trading System. Options Participants may trade options for their own proprietary accounts or, if authorized to do so under applicable law, and consistent with these BX Options Rules and with applicable law and SEC rules and regulations, may conduct business on behalf of Customers.’’ See BOM Option Rules, Chapter II, Section 1(a). mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 2 17 VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:15 Nov 10, 2015 Jkt 238001 Regulation Systems Compliance and Integrity (‘‘Regulation SCI’’).5 The text of the proposed rule change is available on the Exchange’s Web site at http:// nasdaqomxbx.cchwallstreet.com, at the principal office of the Exchange, and at the Commission’s Public Reference Room. 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 Exchange 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. The Exchange 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 The Exchange is proposing to adopt new Rule 1170 to implement the BC/DR Plans requirements of Rule 1004 of Regulation SCI. As adopted by the Commission, Regulation SCI applies to certain self-regulatory organizations (including the Exchange), alternative trading systems (‘‘ATSs’’), plan processors, and exempt clearing agencies (collectively, ‘‘SCI entities’’), and will require these SCI entities to comply with requirements with respect to the automated systems central to the performance of their regulated activities. Among the requirements of Regulation SCI is Rule 1001(a)(2)(v), which requires the Exchange and other SCI entities to maintain ‘‘[b]usiness continuity and disaster recovery plans that include maintaining backup and recovery capabilities sufficiently resilient and geographically diverse and that are reasonably designed to achieve next business day resumption of trading and two-hour resumption of critical SCI systems following a wide-scale disruption.’’ 6 The Exchange has put extensive time and resources toward planning for system failures and already maintains robust BC/DR Plans consistent with the Rule. As set forth below, in connection with Regulation 5 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 73639 (November 19, 2014), 79 FR 72252 (December 5, 2014) (‘‘SCI Adopting Release’’). 6 17 CFR 242.1001(a)(2)(v). PO 00000 Frm 00054 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 SCI, the Exchange is proposing to require certain Members to participate in testing of the operation of the Exchange’s BC/DR Plans. With respect to an SCI entity’s BC/DR Plans, including its backup systems, paragraph (a) of Rule 1004 of Regulation SCI requires each SCI entity to: ‘‘[e]stablish standards for the designation of those members or participants that the SCI entity reasonably determines are, taken as a whole, the minimum necessary for the maintenance of fair and orderly markets in the event of the activation of such plans.’’ 7 Paragraph (b) of Rule 1004 of Regulation SCI further requires each SCI entity to ‘‘[d]esignate members or participants pursuant to the standards established in paragraph (a) of [Rule 1004] and require participation by such designated members or participants in scheduled functional and performance testing of the operation of such plans, in the manner and frequency specified by the SCI entity, provided that such frequency shall not be less than once every 12 months.’’ 8 In order to comply with Rule 1004 of Regulation SCI, the Exchange proposes to adopt new Rule 1170, which incorporates the requirements of Rule 1004 of Regulation SCI as part of the Exchange’s rules, and sets forth the notice, selection criteria and obligations of Members and Participants with respect to BC/DR Plans testing. BX proposes to adopt Rule 1170(a), which will set forth the Exchange’s obligations with respect to the selection of Members and Participants for testing. Specifically, the rule will require BX to ‘‘[e]stablish standards for the designation of those Members and Options Participants that the Exchange reasonably determines are, taken as a whole, the minimum necessary for the maintenance of fair and orderly markets in the event of the activation of such plans.’’ The proposed new rule further provides that ‘‘[s]uch standards may include volume-based and/or market share-based criteria, and may be adjusted from time to time by the Exchange.’’ Lastly, the proposed new rule will require BX to provide public notice of the standards that it adopts. BX is proposing to adopt Rule 1170(b), which will set forth the obligations of BX and its Members and Participants with respect to testing. Specifically, the rule will require BX to ‘‘designate Members and Options Participants pursuant to the standards established in paragraph (a) of this rule and require participation by such 7 17 8 17 CFR 242.1004(a).
