NOTICE OF COMMISSION APPROVAL OF AN AMENDED LIST OF EXCHANGES, LEAD REGULATORS AND EXEMPTING REGULATORS IN RELATION TO THE MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING RESPECTING THE OVERSIGHT OF EXCHANGES AND QUOTATION AND TRADE REPORTING SYSTEMS



On June 20, 2014, the Commission approved changes to the List of Exchanges, Lead Regulators and Exempting Regulators in relation to the Memorandum of Understanding respecting the Oversight of Exchanges and Quotation and Trade Reporting Systems (List of Exchanges), effective July 1, 2014.

The Memorandum of Understanding respecting the Oversight of Exchanges and Quotation and Trade Reporting Systems (MOU) sets out the responsibilities of a lead regulator when conducting its oversight of an exchange or quotation and trade reporting system (QTRS) and the involvement of an exempting regulator in such oversight. The List of Exchanges identifies each lead and exempting regulator for every exchange subject to the MOU.

The List of Exchanges has been amended to reflect the recognition of Alpha Exchange Inc. (Alpha) as an exchange and the identification of lead and exempting regulators for Alpha. The amended List of Exchanges also reflects changes to the exempting regulators for ICE Futures Canada Inc. and Natural Gas Exchange Inc.

The amended List of Exchanges is found at Appendix A of this Notice and a marked version reflecting the changes is found at Appendix B.
