SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On March 7, 2013, the Commission voted to propose Regulation SCI and solicit comment on a proposed rule and form, as well as an amendment to Regulation ATS,[1] that would require SCI entities to comply with requirements with respect to their automated systems that support the performance of their regulated activities. The Commission originally requested that comments on this proposal be received by May 24, 2013. The Commission has recently received requests to extend the comment period and believes that extending the comment period is appropriate in order to give the public additional time to comment on the matters addressed by the release.[2] This extension will allow for 105 days of comment, which the Commission believes should provide the public with sufficient additional time to consider thoroughly the matters addressed by proposed Regulation SCI and to submit comprehensive responses to the proposal which would benefit the Commission in its consideration of the final rules. Therefore, the Commission is extending the public comment period for 45 days, until Monday, July 8, 2013.

Start Signature

By the Commission.

Dated: May 20, 2013.

Elizabeth M. Murphy,

Secretary.
