Daily Rules, Proposed Rules, and Notices of the Federal Government
The proposed rule change would conform the Exchange's rules to its practice. Under the Exchange's rules, a member firm for which the Exchange is the designated examining authority must notify the Exchange before opening a new branch office. The Exchange's rules require that a member firm provide this notice by completing and submitting a MW-B form. The Exchange represents, however, that it currently asks its member firms to submit Schedule E to Form BD for that purpose. The proposed rule change would correct the reference to the form in CHX Article VI, Rule 5.
The Commission finds that the proposed rule change is consistent with the requirements of the Act and the rules and regulations thereunder applicable to a national securities exchange.
For the foregoing reasons, the Commission finds that the proposed rule change is consistent with the requirements of the Act and rules and regulations thereunder.
