Agency Information Collection Activities: Comment Request, 46206-46207 [2020-16666]

The Commission also believes that the proposal is consistent with Sections 6(b)(1) and 6(b)(6) of the Act 18 which require that the rules of an exchange enforce compliance with, and provide appropriate discipline for, violations of Commission and Exchange rules. Finally, the Commission finds that the proposal is consistent with the public interest, the protection of investors, or otherwise in furtherance of the purposes of the Act, as required by Rule 19d– 1(c)(2) under the Act,19 which governs minor rule violation plans. As stated above, the Exchange proposes to add the CAT Compliance Rules to the list of minor rule violations in Rule 9217 to be consistent with the approach FINRA has taken for minor violations of its corresponding CAT Compliance Rules.20 The Commission has already approved FINRA’s treatment of CAT Compliance Rules violations when it approved the addition of CAT Compliance Rules to FINRA’s MRVP.21 As noted in that order, and similarly herein, the Commission believes that Exchange’s treatment of CAT Compliance Rules violations as part of its MRVP provides a reasonable means of addressing violations that do not rise to the level of requiring formal disciplinary proceedings, while providing greater flexibility in handling certain violations. However, the Commission expects that, as with FINRA, the Exchange will continue to conduct surveillance with due diligence and make determinations based on its findings, on a case-by-case basis, regarding whether a sanction under the rule is appropriate, or whether a violation requires formal disciplinary action. Accordingly, the Commission believes the proposal raises no novel or significant issues. For the same reasons discussed above, the Commission finds good cause, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act,22 for approving the proposed rule 18 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(1) and 78f(b)(6). CFR 240.19d–1(c)(2). 20 As discussed above, the Exchange has entered into a Rule 17d–2 Plan and an RSA with FINRA with respect to the CAT Compliance Rules. The Commission notes that, unless relieved by the Commission of its responsibility, as may be the case under the Rule 17d–2 Plan, the Exchange continues to bear the responsibility for self-regulatory conduct and liability for self-regulatory failures, not the selfregulatory organization retained to perform regulatory functions on the Exchange’s behalf pursuant to an RSA. See Securities Exchange Release No. 61419 (January 26, 2010), 75 FR 5157 (February 1, 2010) (SR–BATS–2009–031), note 93 and accompanying text. 21 See supra note 4. 22 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(2). 19 17 VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:33 Jul 30, 2020 Jkt 250001 change prior to the thirtieth day after the date of publication of the notice of the filing thereof in the Federal Register. The proposal merely adds the CAT Compliance Rules to the Exchange’s MRVP and harmonizes its application with FINRA’s application of CAT Compliance Rules under its own MRVP. Accordingly, the Commission believes that a full notice-and-comment period is not necessary before approving the proposal. V. Conclusion It is therefore ordered, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act 23 and Rule 19d–1(c)(2) thereunder,24 that the proposed rule change (SR–NYSEAMER– 2020–52) be, and hereby is, approved on an accelerated basis. For the Commission, by the Division of Trading and Markets, pursuant to delegated authority.25 J. Matthew DeLesDernier, Assistant Secretary.
