The Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission” or “SEC”), at 17 C.F.R. 608(a)(8), requires the NYSE security exchanges and other self-regulatory organizations (“SRO”s) to publish, on their websites, the National Market System (“NMS”) Plans in which each participates. Below are links to the websites that include copies of each of the applicable NMS Plans of which one or more NYSE securities exchanges are members, along with related information.
Participants or sponsors of an NMS Plan must ensure that any proposed amendments are posted to a designated website after filing the amendments with the Commission, and that those websites are updated to reflect the current status of the amendment and the NMS Plan. Each plan participant or sponsor must also provide a link on its own website to the current version of its NMS Plan.
The SEC maintains a file number list of NMS Plans.
