Standards for Covered Clearing Agencies
The Securities and Exchange Commission (``SEC'' or ``Commission'') proposes to amend Rule 17Ad-22 and add Rule 17Ab2-2 pursuant to Section 17A of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (``Exchange Act'') and the Payment, Clearing, and Settlement Supervision Act of 2010 (``Clearing Supervision Act''), adopted in Title VIII of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (``Dodd-Frank Act''). Among other things, the proposed rules would establish standards for the operation and governance of certain types of registered clearing agencies that meet the definition of a ``covered clearing agency.''
