SEC RIN: 3235-AL13 Publication ID: 2012 
Title: Clearing Agency Standards  
Abstract: The Commission proposed seven new rules and an amendment to an existing rule related to clearing agencies, including clearing agencies that clear security-based swaps. The proposed rules are designed to enhance the regulatory framework for the supervision of clearing agencies. Specifically, the proposed rules: (1) identify certain minimum standards for all clearing agencies; (2) require dissemination of pricing and valuation information by security-based swap clearing agencies that perform central counterparty services; (3) require all clearing agencies to have adequate safeguards and procedures to protect the confidentiality of trading information of clearing agency participants; (4) exempt certain security-based swap dealers and security-based swap execution facilities from the definition of a clearing agency; (5) amend rules concerning registration of clearing agencies to account for security-based swap clearing agencies and to make other technical changes; (6) require all clearing agencies to have procedures that identify and address conflicts of interest; (7) require minimum standards for all members of clearing agency boards of directors or committees; and (8) require all clearing agencies to designate a chief compliance officer. The Commission adopted a new rule related to registered clearing agencies, including clearing agencies that clear security-based swaps. The rule establishes minimum requirements for registered clearing agency risk management practices and operations.
