B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition IEX does not believe that the proposed rule change will result in any burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. The proposed rule change is designed to provide appropriate, objective and transparent criteria for Market Maker excused withdrawals in securities listed on IEX. The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will result in any burden on intramarket competition because all Market Makers will be subject to the same criteria. The Exchange also does not believe that the proposed rule change will result in any burden on intermarket competition, since Nasdaq has substantially similar criteria for excused withdrawals and other exchanges are free to adopt comparable criteria. The Exchange also believes that the proposed rule change will serve to promote clarity and consistency, as noted in the Statutory Basis section, thereby reducing burdens on competition and facilitating investor protection. C. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others Written comments were neither solicited nor received. asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with NOTICES 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 if consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest, the proposed rule change has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 18 and Rule 19b–4(f)(6) thereunder.19 18 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A). CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6). In addition, Rule 19b– 4(f)(6)(iii) requires the Exchange to give the Commission written notice of the Exchange’s intent to file the proposed rule change, along with a brief description and 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. The Exchange has satisfied this requirement. 19 17 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:54 Oct 26, 2017 Jkt 244001 A proposed rule change filed under Rule 19b–4(f)(6) 20 normally does not become operative for 30 days after the date of filing. However, pursuant to Rule 19b–4(f)(6)(iii),21 the Commission may 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. The Commission believes that waiver of the operative delay is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest because the Exchange’s proposed rule change will conform IEX’s rules to a substantially similar provision in the rules of Nasdaq, and the Exchange’s proposal does not raise any new or novel issues. Accordingly, the Commission hereby waives the 30day operative delay requirement and designates the proposed rule change as operative upon filing.22 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 should be approved or disapproved. IV.
