Download as PDF 29152 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 121 / Friday, June 22, 2018 / Notices GSD and MBSD fails charge calculations do not produce a zero charge would encourage market participants to maintain their fails charge operational processes. Accordingly, the Commission finds that the proposed rule change is designed to help ensure that settlement in the applicable markets covered by FICC’s processes occurs on a timely basis, and thereby promotes the prompt and accurate clearance and settlement of securities transactions, consistent with Section 17A(b)(3)(F) of the Act.39 B. Rule 17Ad–22(e)(23)(ii) Under the Act Rule 17Ad–22(e)(23)(ii) under the Act requires each covered clearing agency 40 to establish, implement, maintain and enforce written policies and procedures reasonably designed to provide sufficient information to enable participants to identify and evaluate the risks, fees, and other material costs they incur by participating in the covered clearing agency.41 As discussed above, the proposed rule change would update both the GSD Rules and the MBSD Rules to clarify the target rate that may be used in the fails charge calculations under certain circumstances and make certain technical changes to the fails charge provisions to ensure consistent use of defined terms. The proposed rule change also would update the MBSD Rules to clarify that a cap applies to the MBSD fails charge. These clarifications are designed help ensure that the GSD and MBSD fails charges are transparent and clear to market participants. Increasing transparency and clarity around these charges would help market participants better understand the operation of the fails charges, and thereby provide market participants with increased predictability and certainty regarding their obligations to FICC. Accordingly, the Commission finds that the proposed rule change would help establish, implement, and maintain FICC’s rules in a manner reasonably designed to provide sufficient information to enable participants to identify and evaluate the risks, fees, and other material costs they incur by participating in FICC, daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES 39 Id. 40 A ‘‘covered clearing agency’’ means, among other things, a clearing agency registered with the Commission under Section 17A of the Act (15 U.S.C. 78q–1 et seq.) that is designated systemically important by the Financial Stability Oversight Committee (‘‘FSOC’’) pursuant to the Payment, Clearing, and Settlement Supervision Act of 2010 (12 U.S.C. 5461 et seq.). See 17 CFR 240.17Ad– 22(a)(5)–(6). Because FICC is a registered clearing agency with the Commission that has been designated systemically important by FSOC, FICC is a covered clearing agency. 41 17 CFR 240.17Ad–22(e)(23)(ii). VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:16 Jun 21, 2018 Jkt 244001 consistent with Rule 17Ad–22(e)(23)(ii) under the Act.42 III. Conclusion On the basis of the foregoing, the Commission finds that the proposal is consistent with the requirements of the Act, in particular the requirements of Section 17A of the Act 43 and the rules and regulations thereunder. It is therefore ordered, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act, that proposed rule change SR–FICC–2018– 004 be, and hereby is, approved.44 For the Commission, by the Division of Trading and Markets, pursuant to delegated authority.45 Eduardo A.
