The Boston Stock Exchange (BSE) filed rule changes to amend certain rules that govern members’ conduct in doing business with the public. The amendments would eliminate a current BSE requirement that a member qualified to do a public customer business in options must designate specific individuals to act as a Senior Registered Options Principal and as a Compliance Registered Options Principal. Under the proposed changes, members would be required to integrate the responsibility for supervision of their public customer options business into their overall supervisory and compliance programs. The rule changes conform BSE rules to those of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority and the other options exchanges.
