For the reasons discussed below, the Commission is granting approval of the proposed rule change. I. Description of the Proposed Rule Change The following is a description of the proposed rule change, as provided by DTC: Background. The DTC 7 end-of-day net settlement structure depends upon the use of Settling Banks.8 Each Participant must designate a Settling Bank to settle on its behalf. Any Participant that is a bank may settle for itself.9 Today, a Settling Bank that settles for other Participants must acknowledge its end-of-day net-net settlement balance for the group of Participants for which it settles, or notify DTC if it refuses to settle for any Participant for which it is the designated Settling Bank, by the later of 4:15 p.m. and the time that is 30 minutes after the Settling Bank end-ofday net-net settlement balances are first made available by DTC (‘‘Acknowledgment Cutoff Time’’).10 If a Settling Bank notifies DTC that it refuses to settle for a Participant, DTC would recalculate the Settling Bank’s net-net settlement balance by excluding the net settlement balance of the Participant for which the Settling Bank refused to settle.11 DTC would then provide the Settling Bank with its adjusted net-net settlement balance (‘‘Post-Refusal Adjusted Balance’’). The Settling Bank may not refuse to settle for any other Participant on that day and must immediately respond to DTC to 6 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 76510 (November 23, 2015), 80 FR 74819 (November 30, 2015) (SR–DTC–2015–011). 7 Terms not otherwise defined herein have the meaning set forth in the DTC Rules (the ‘‘Rules’’), available at http://www.dtcc.com/legal/rules-andprocedures.aspx. 8 See the Guide, supra note 3, pp. 17–18. 9 See Rule 9(B), supra note 7. 10 Currently, a Settling Bank that settles only for itself may opt out of the requirement to acknowledge its balance, but it cannot refuse to settle for itself. 11 Any Participant for which its designated Settling Bank has refused to settle on its behalf remains obligated to DTC for the payment of any net debit balance and must make another arrangement to timely pay that amount by Fedwire.
