z
registration as a national securities exchange pursuant to Section 5 of the Exchange Act to provide the Securities and
Exchange Commission (“SEC ” or “Commission”) with certain information regarding the operation of the exchange.
Form 1 also requires national securities exchanges or exchanges exempt from registration based on limited volume
to update certain information on a periodic basis.
An agency may not conduct or sponsor , and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless
z
it displays a currently valid control number . Sections 3(a)(1), 5, 6(a) and 23(a) authorize the Commission to collect
information on this Form 1 from exchanges. See 15 U.S.C. §§78c(a)(1), 78e, 78f(a) and 78w(a).
Any member of the public may direct to the Commission any comments concerning the accuracy of the burden
z
estimate on the facing page of Form 1 and any suggestions for reducing this burden.
Form 1 is designed to enable the Commission to determine whether an exchange applying for registration is in
z
compliance with the provisions of Sections 6 and 19 of the Exchange Act. Form 1 is also designed to enable the
Commission to determine whether a national securities exchange or exchange exempt from registration based on
limited volume is operating in compliance with the Exchange Act.
It is estimated that an exchange will spend approximately 47 hours completing the initial application on Form 1
z
pursuant to Rule 6a-1. It is also estimated that each exchange will spend approximately 25 hours to prepare each
amendment to Form 1 pursuant to Rule 6a-2.
It is mandatory that an exchange seeking to operate as a national securities exchange or as an exchange exempt
z
from registration based on limited volume file Form 1 with the Commission. It is also mandatory that national
