I. Introduction

On May 13, 2021, ICE Clear Europe Limited (“ICE Clear Europe”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”), pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act (“Act”) [1] and Rule 19b-4 thereunder,[2] a proposed rule change to amend its Clearing Rules, Clearing Procedures, Finance Procedures, Delivery Procedures, CDS Procedures, Membership Procedures, Complaint Resolution Procedures, and General Contract Terms to make various updates and enhancements. The proposed rule change was published for comment in the Federal Register on June 2, 2021.[3] To date, the Commission has not received comments on the proposed rule change. On June 16, 2021, ICE Clear Europe filed Partial Amendment No. 1 to the proposed rule change. The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on Partial Amendment No. 1 and to designate a longer period for action on the proposed rule change, as modified by Partial Amendment No. 1.

II. Notice of Partial Amendment No. 1 and Solicitation of Comments

On June 16, 2021, ICE Clear Europe filed Partial Amendment No. 1 to update Exhibit 5D, the Delivery Start Printed Page 38522Procedures, to correct a formatting error that resulted in the omission of several proposed definitions to update references to ICE Clear Europe systems.

Interested persons are invited to submit written data, views, and arguments concerning the foregoing, including whether the proposed rule change, as modified by Partial Amendment No. 1, is consistent with the Act. Comments may be submitted by any of the following methods:

III. Designation of Longer Period for Action on the Proposed Rule Change, as Modified by Partial Amendment No. 1

Section 19(b)(2) of the Act [4] provides that within 45 days of the publication of notice of the filing of a proposed rule change, or within such longer period up to 90 days as the Commission may designate if it finds such longer period to be appropriate and publishes its reasons for so finding or as to which the self-regulatory organization consents, the Commission shall either approve the proposed rule change, disapprove the proposed rule change, or institute proceedings to determine whether the proposed rule change should be disapproved. The 45th day from the publication of notice of filing of this proposed rule change is July 17, 2021.

The Commission is extending the 45-day time period for Commission action on the proposed rule change, as modified by by Partial Amendment No. 1. The Commission finds it is appropriate to designate a longer period within which to take action on the proposed rule change so that it has sufficient time to consider ICE Clear Europe's proposed rule change, as modified by by Partial AmendmentNo. 1.

Accordingly, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) [5] of the Act, and for the reasons discussed above, the Commission designates August 31, 2021, as the date by which the Commission should either approve or disapprove, or institute proceedings to determine whether to disapprove, the proposed rule change, as modified by by Partial Amendment No. 1. (File No. SR-ICEEU-2021-010).
