Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 183 / Friday, September 22, 2017 / Notices the procedures and also would conform the rule more closely to CBOE Rule 9.8 Interpretations and Policies .01. The last sentence of Commentary .02 would be revised by replacing the phrase ‘‘short uncovered’’ options positions with the phrase ‘‘uncovered short’’ options positions. Finally, the Exchange proposes to amend Rule 1025 Commentary .03 by adding the word ‘‘shall’’ to the first sentence, to conform the language more closely to CBOE Rule 9.8, Interpretations and Policies .02. 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that its proposal is consistent with Section 6(b) of the Act,5 in general, and furthers the objectives of Section 6(b)(5) of the Act,6 in particular, in that it is designed to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system, and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest. The amendments should remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system, by correcting various aspects of the rules and by adding additional clarity to the rules. The minor corrections and clarifications described above should improve the accuracy of the rules and should also improve their readability, making them more understandable and thereby facilitating easier compliance. Additionally, where certain sections of the Phlx rules are proposed to be amended to conform more closely to comparable rules of the CBOE, the proposed rule change should create greater regulatory parity among the two options exchanges regarding members’ obligations in the areas of conduct of accounts for options trading and supervision of accounts. The proposed amendments should create more efficient regulatory compliance by members of both exchanges due to reduction of differences in wording and consequent potential for inadvertent regulatory noncompliance. In this regard, the Exchange believes it is in the public interest for a more consistently worded regulatory policy and standard regarding conduct of accounts for options trading and supervision of accounts to be in effect across options exchanges, for the benefit of customers. B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will impose 5 15 6 15 U.S.C. 78f(b). U.S.C. 78f(b)(5). VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:11 Sep 21, 2017 Jkt 241001 any burden on competition not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. As stated above the proposal is designed to correct various aspects of the rules and to add additional clarity to various sections of the rules, which are equally applicable to all similarly situated members and member organizations. Certain aspects of the proposed rule change to amend various sections of Rules 1024 and 1025 are also designed to conform to Phlx rules more closely to comparable rules of CBOE, thus eliminating a potential source of regulatory arbitrage and facilitating compliance by dual members. C. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others No written comments were either solicited or received. III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action Within 45 days of the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register or within such longer period (i) as the Commission may designate up to 90 days of such date if it finds such longer period to be appropriate and publishes its reasons for so finding or (ii) as to which the Exchange consents, the Commission shall: (a) By order approve or disapprove such proposed rule change, or (b) institute proceedings to determine whether the proposed rule change should be disapproved.
