Start Preamble February 24, 2000.

The International Securities Exchange LLC, having filed an application with the Commission for registration as a national securities exchange pursuant to Section 6 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”); and

In reviewing the ISE's registration application, the Commission has weighed the particular rule provisions Start Printed Page 11402against the regulatory objectives of the Exchange Act. Among other things, those objectives embody the concept that exchanges will deal fairly with the public; that exchanges will be organized in such a fashion as to ensure their continued viability in asserting self-regulatory oversight over their members; and that exchanges may, so far as is consistent with other regulatory objectives of the Act, maintain competitive viability with other exchanges. Applying these criteria, the Commission finds it in the public interest to declare effective the registration of the ISE on the basis of its present rules; and

It appearing to the Commission that the rules of the exchange provide for the expulsion, suspension or disciplining of a member for conduct or proceeding inconsistent with just and equitable principles of trade and declare that the willful violation of any provisions of the Exchange Act, or of any rule or regulation thereunder, shall be considered conduct or proceeding inconsistent with just and equitable principles of trade; and It further appearing that the exchange is so organized as to be able to comply with the provisions of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations thereunder, and that the rules of the exchange are just and adequate to insure fair dealing and to protect investors; and

Finally, it appearing that the rules of the exchange do not impose any burden on competition that is not necessary or in furtherance of the purposes of the Exchange Act;

It is ordered that the application of the International Securities Exchange LLC for registration as a national securities exchange be, and hereby is, granted.
