As such, BOX believes the proposed rule change is in the public interest, and therefore, consistent with the Act. A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change C. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others The Exchange has neither solicited nor received comments on the proposed rule change. 1. Purpose The Exchange proposes to make certain clarifying and non-substantive changes to its fee schedule in order to improve formatting and increase overall readability. The Exchange notes that these changes are purely clerical and do not substantively amend any fee or rebate, nor do they alter the manner in which the Exchange assesses fees or calculates rebates.

Specifically, the Exchange proposes to add a title page and table of contents page to the fee schedule. 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that the proposal is consistent with the requirements of Section 6(b) of the Act,3 in general, and Section 6(b)(5) of the Act,4 in particular, in that the proposed change is designed to promote just and equitable principles of trade, remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system, and, in general protect investors and the public interest, by increasing the readability of BOX’s Fee Schedule. Further, the Exchange notes that the proposed changes do not substantively amend any fee or rebate, nor do they alter the manner in which the Exchange assesses fees or calculates rebates.

Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will impose any burden on competition not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. The Exchange believes that the proposed change will not impose a burden on competition, as the changes are purely clerical and do not amend any fee or rebate within the BOX Fee Schedule. III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action Because the proposed rule change does not (i) significantly affect the protection of investors or the public interest; (ii) impose any significant burden on competition; and (iii) become operative for 30 days from the date on which it was filed, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate, it has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 5 and Rule 19b– 4(f)(6) thereunder.6 A proposed rule change filed pursuant to Rule 19b–4(f)(6) under the Act 7 normally does not become operative for 30 days after the date of its filing. However, Rule 19b–4(f)(6)(iii) 8 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 asked the Commission to waive the 30-day operative delay so that the proposal may become operative immediately upon filing, which the Exchange states would immediately add clarity to the Fee Schedule.

I. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Terms of Substance 
of the Proposed Rule Change

    The Exchange proposes to amend the Fee Schedule to make several 
non-substantive changes. The text of the proposed rule change is

Commission's Public Reference Room and also on the Exchange's Internet

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 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 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

1. Purpose
    The Exchange proposes to make certain clarifying and non-
substantive changes to its fee schedule in order to improve formatting 
and increase overall readability. The Exchange notes that these changes 
are purely clerical and do not substantively amend any fee or rebate, 
nor do they alter the manner in which the Exchange assesses fees or 
calculates rebates. The proposed changes are simply intended to 
increase overall readability and improve formatting. Specifically, the 
Exchange proposes to add a title page and table of contents page to the 
fee schedule.
2. Statutory Basis
    The Exchange believes that the proposal is consistent with the 
requirements of Section 6(b) of the Act,\3\ in general, and Section 
6(b)(5) of the Act,\4\ in particular, in that the proposed change is 
designed to promote just and equitable principles of trade, remove 
impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and 
a national market system, and, in general protect investors and the 
public interest, by increasing the readability of BOX's Fee Schedule. 
Further, the Exchange notes that the proposed changes do not 
substantively amend any fee or rebate, nor do they alter the manner in 
which the Exchange assesses fees or calculates rebates. Finally, the 
Exchange believes that the proposed changes will make the fee schedule 
clearer and eliminate investor confusion, thereby removing impediments 
to and perfecting the mechanism of a free and open market and a 
national market system, and, in general, protecting investors and the 
public interest. As such, BOX believes the proposed rule change is in 
the public interest, and therefore, consistent with the Act.

    \4\ 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

    The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will 
impose any burden on competition not necessary or appropriate in 
furtherance of the purposes of the Act. The Exchange believes that the 
proposed change will not impose a burden on competition, as the changes 
are purely clerical and do not amend any fee or rebate within the BOX 
Fee Schedule.

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

    The Exchange has neither solicited nor received comments on the 
proposed rule change.

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

    Because the proposed rule change does not (i) significantly affect 
the protection of investors or the public interest; (ii) impose any 
significant burden on competition; and (iii) become operative for 30 
days from the date on which it was filed, or such shorter time as the 
Commission may designate, it has become effective pursuant to Section 
19(b)(3)(A) of the Act \5\ and Rule 19b-4(f)(6) thereunder.\6\

    \5\ 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A).
    \6\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4(f)(6). As required under Rule 19b-
4(f)(6)(iii), the Exchange provided the Commission with written 
notice of its intent to file the proposed rule change, along with a 
brief description and the 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A proposed rule change filed pursuant to Rule 19b-4(f)(6) under the 
Act \7\ normally does not become operative for 30 days after the date 
of its filing. However, Rule 19b-4(f)(6)(iii) \8\ 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 asked the Commission to waive the 30-day operative delay so that 
the proposal may become operative immediately upon filing, which the 
Exchange states would immediately add clarity to the Fee Schedule. The 
Commission notes that the proposed rule change merely adopts a table of 
contents and makes formatting changes that are designed to increase 
overall readability of the fee schedule

[[Page 28719]]

and thus believes the waiver of the operative delay is consistent with 
the protection of investors and the public interest. Therefore, the 
Commission hereby waives the operative delay and designates the 
proposal operative upon filing.\9\

    \8\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4(f)(6)(iii).
    \9\ For purposes only of waiving the 30-day operative delay, the 
Commission has also 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. If the Commission 
takes such action, the Commission shall institute proceedings to 
determine whether the proposed rule change should be approved or 
disapproved.

arguments concerning the foregoing, including whether the proposed rule 
change is consistent with the Act. Comments may be submitted by any of
