Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 201 / Friday, October 16, 2020 / Notices arrangements and specify clear and direct lines of responsibility, consistent with Rule 17Ad–22(e)(2)(i) and (v).15 Rule 17Ad–22(e)(6)(iv) 16 requires each covered clearing agency to establish, implement, maintain, and enforce written policies and procedures reasonably designed to cover its credit exposures to its participants by establishing a risk-based margin system that, at a minimum, uses reliable sources of timely price data and uses procedures and sound valuation models for addressing circumstances in which pricing data are not readily available or reliable. As discussed above, the proposed changes provide incentive against Index Swaption Missed Submissions by incorporating Index Swaptions into ICC’s summary assessment approach in the Rules and also provide one waiver per calendar year for Index Swaption Missed Submissions caused by technical failures. In ICC’s view, the proposed changes ensure a fair and equitable assessment structure with respect to Index Swaptions and thus are appropriately designed to support and maintain the integrity and effectiveness of ICC’s price discovery process that provides reliable prices, consistent with the requirements of Rule 17Ad– 22(e)(6)(iv).17 (B) Clearing Agency’s Statement on Burden on Competition ICC does not believe the proposed rule change would have any impact, or impose any burden, on competition not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purpose of the Act. The proposed rule change amends Rule 702(e) and Schedule 702 of the Rules to incorporate Index Swaptions and will apply uniformly across all market participants. Accordingly, ICC does not believe the amendments would impose any burden on competition not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purpose of the Act. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES (C) Clearing Agency’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change, Security-Based Swap Submission, or Advance Notice Received From Members, Participants or Others Written comments relating to the proposed rule change have not been solicited or received.

Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change, Security-Based Swap Submission, or Advance Notice 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 up to 90 days (i) as the Commission may designate if it finds such longer period to be appropriate and publishes its reasons for so finding or (ii) as to which the self-regulatory organization consents, the Commission will: (A) By order approve or disapprove such proposed rule change, or (B) institute proceedings to determine whether the proposed rule change should be disapproved.
