Pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the ‘‘Act’’),1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 notice is hereby given that on June 28, 2019, ICE Clear Credit LLC (‘‘ICC’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission the proposed rule change as described in Items I, II, and III below, which Items have been prepared primarily by ICC. The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons. I. Clearing Agency’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The principal purpose of the proposed rule change is to formalize the ICC Clearing Participant (‘‘CP’’) Default Management Procedures (‘‘Default Management Procedures’’). ICC also proposes related default management enhancements to the ICC Risk Management Framework. These revisions do not require any changes to the ICC Clearing Rules (the ‘‘Rules’’). II. Clearing Agency’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change In its filing with the Commission, ICC included statements concerning the purpose of and basis for the proposed rule change, security-based swap submission, or advance notice and discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule change, securitybased swap submission, or advance notice. The text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. ICC has prepared summaries, set forth in sections (A), (B), and (C) below, of the most significant aspects of these statements.

Frm 00118 Fmt 4703 34021 enhancements to the Risk Management Framework. ICC believes such revisions will facilitate the prompt and accurate clearance and settlement of securities transactions and derivative agreements, contracts, and transactions for which it is responsible. ICC proposes to make such changes effective following Commission approval of the proposed rule change. The proposed revisions are described in detail as follows. Default Management Procedures The Default Management Procedures set forth ICC’s default management process, including the actions taken by ICC to determine that a CP is in default as well as the actions taken by ICC in connection with such default to closeout the defaulter’s portfolio (the ‘‘CloseOut’’). Currently, ICC’s default management rules and procedures, including the tools available to manage a default and return to a matched book, are in several ICC documents, including the ICC Rules, the Default Auction Procedures—Initial Default Auctions, and the Secondary Auction Procedures. The Default Management Procedures do not change ICC’s existing default management rules and procedures. Instead, the Default Management Procedures provide additional detail with respect to ICC’s existing default management rules and procedures, such as assigning responsibility for default management actions and adding instructions on how to perform default management actions. ICC’s default management process is comprised of the following sub-processes, each of which is detailed in a section in the document: Monitoring CPs to identify those that are at risk of defaulting or are in default (‘‘Default Risk CPs’’); declaring a default; transferring a defaulter’s client portfolios (‘‘Porting Portfolios’’) to nondefaulting Futures Commission Merchants (‘‘Potential Receiving FCMs’’); consulting with the CDS Default Committee, which is comprised of representatives from no more than three CDS Committee-Eligible Participants; 3 performing Standard Default Management Actions and Secondary Default Management Actions to facilitate the Close-Out; and managing default resources. The Default Management Procedures introduce ICC’s default management process. The document contains a list of defined terms that are key for default management and an overview of ICC’s default management process that consists of descriptions of the abovementioned sub-processes. 3 A CP that has been approved by the Board for participation in the CDS Default Committee.

as the aggregate offering price of all securities of the issuer that 
may be sold within a 12-month period does not exceed $5,000,000 and 
certain other conditions are met. Rule 607 under Regulation E (17 CFR
