In accordance with the requirements of the Federal Advisory Committee Act, 5 U.S.C.—App., the Commission is publishing this notice that the Chair of the Commission, with the concurrence of the other Commissioners, intends to establish the Securities and Exchange Commission Equity Market Structure Advisory Committee (the “Committee”). The Committee's objective is to provide the Commission with diverse perspectives on the structure and operations of the U.S. equities markets, as well as advice and recommendations on matters related to equity market structure.

No more than seventeen voting members will be appointed to the Committee. Such members shall represent a cross-section of those directly affected by, interested in, and/or qualified to provide advice to the Commission on matters related to equity market structure. The Committee's membership will be balanced fairly in terms of points of view represented and functions to be performed.

The Committee may be established 15 days after publication of this notice in the Federal Register by filing a charter for the Committee with the Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs of the United States Senate, the Committee on Financial Services of the Start Printed Page 3674United States House of Representatives, and the Committee Management Secretariat of the General Services Administration. A copy of the charter as so filed also will be filed with the Chair of the Commission, furnished to the Library of Congress, and posted on the Commission's Web site at www.sec.gov.

The Committee will operate for two years from the date the charter is filed with the appropriate entities unless the Commission directs that the Committee terminate on an earlier date. Prior to the expiration of this two-year period, the Committee's charter may be re-established or renewed in accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act.

The Committee will meet at such intervals as are necessary to carry out its functions. The charter contemplates that the full Committee will meet four times annually. Meetings of subgroups or subcommittees of the full Committee may occur more frequently.

The charter will provide that the duties of the Committee are to be solely advisory. The Commission alone will make any determinations of action to be taken and policy to be expressed with respect to matters within the Commission's authority as to which the Committee provides advice or makes recommendations. The Chair of the Commission affirms that the establishment of the Committee is necessary and in the public interest.
