On July 7th, the SEC adopted an interim final rule amending Rule 19b-4 under the Securities Exchange Act to expand the list of categories that qualify for summary effectiveness under Exchange Act Section 19(b)(3)(A) to include any matter effecting a change in an existing service of a registered clearing agency that both primarily affects the futures clearing operations of the clearing agency with respect to futures that are not security futures, and does not significantly affect any securities clearing operations of the clearing agency or any related rights or obligations of the clearing agency or persons using such service. The SEC also made a corresponding technical modification to the General Instructions for Exchange Act Form 19b-4. The amendments to Rule 19b-4 and Form 19b-4 are intended to streamline the rule filing process in areas involving certain activities concerning non-security products that may be subject to overlapping regulation as a result of, in part, certain provisions under Section 763(b) of the Dodd-Frank Act that would deem some clearing agencies to be registered with the SEC as of July 16, 2011. The interim final rule is effective July 15, 2011. Comments should be submitted on or before September 15, 2011. SEC Release No. 34-64832.
