Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has issued for public comment a draft guide in the agency’s Regulatory Guide Series. This series has been developed to describe and make available to the public such information as methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the NRC’s regulations, techniques that the staff uses in evaluating specific problems or postulated accidents, and data that the staff needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses. The draft regulatory guide, entitled ‘‘Reporting of Safeguards Events,’’ is temporarily identified by its task number, DG–5019, which should be mentioned in all related correspondence. This draft regulatory guide provides an approach acceptable to the NRC staff for use by licensees for reporting of security events. In 10 CFR part 73, ‘‘Physical Protection of Plants and Materials,’’ Section 73.71 requires licensees to report to the Operations Center of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) or to record in a log certain security events. Appendix G, ‘‘Reportable Safeguards Events,’’ to 10 PO 00000 Frm 00109 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 CFR part 73 (Appendix G) describes reporting requirements in detail. Appendix E to 10 CFR part 50 (Appendix E), ‘‘Emergency Planning and Preparedness for Production and Utilization Facilities,’’ provides more detailed information for emergency planning and preparedness. The events to be reported or recorded are those that represent actual or potential threats, suspicious activities, external attacks, or internal tampering with equipment that threaten or affect safe plant operations or effective security operations. The events to be recorded are those that affect or lessen the effectiveness of the security systems, components, and procedures as established by security regulations and the licensee’s approved security plans. Proposed revisions to 10 CFR 73.71 included two new requirements for power reactors: (1) The reporting within 15 minutes after discovery of an actual or imminent threat against a facility, and (2) the reporting of suspicious surveillance activities or attempts at access, both of which are addressed in this guide. II. Further Information The NRC staff is soliciting comments on Draft Regulatory Guide DG–5019. Comments may be accompanied by relevant information or supporting data, and should mention DG–5019 in the subject line. Comments submitted in writing or in electronic form will be made available to the public in their entirety through the NRC’s Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS).

The Exchange now proposes to: (1) Decrease the transaction charge for customers from $0.0030 to $0.0023 (given the lower rate, the $100 per transaction cap will result in transaction charges being assessed only on the first 43,478 shares); (2) eliminate the waiver of fees for electronically entered orders of 2,400 shares or less; (3) establish a flat rate of $0.0007 per share (or seven cents per 100 shares) for clearing charges for orders routed to and executed at another market center; (4) establish a flat rate of $0.0030 per share for orders routed to and executed at another market center; 4 and (5) establish a fee of 0.3% of the total dollar value of the transaction for ETFs trading with a share price of less than $1.00.5 b. Transaction Charges for Specialists. Currently, ETF specialists and registered traders are assessed a transaction charge of $0.0003 per share (or 3 cents per 100 shares) for all shares executed per month. In addition, transaction charges for ETF specialists are capped at $400,000 per month. There are no caps or discounts applied to transaction charges for ETF registered traders.

Therefore, customer accounts (and the fees charged to them) include members’ off-floor proprietary accounts, competing market makers on other exchanges, and other member and nonmember broker-dealers. 4 Orders routed to and executed at another exchange are charged this fee in lieu of the Amex transaction charge. 5 Item (5) was corrected to clarify that the proposed fee change set forth therein applies to ETFs and not to equities, as the text originally read in the Exchange’s filing.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has issued for public 
comment a draft guide in the agency's Regulatory Guide Series. This 
series has been developed to describe and make available to the public 
such information as methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for 
implementing specific parts of the NRC's regulations, techniques that 
the staff uses in evaluating specific problems or postulated accidents, 
and data that the staff needs in its review of applications for permits 
and licenses.
    The draft regulatory guide, entitled ``Reporting of Safeguards 
Events,'' is temporarily identified by its task number, DG-5019, which 
should be mentioned in all related correspondence.
    This draft regulatory guide provides an approach acceptable to the 
NRC staff for use by licensees for reporting of security events. In 10 
CFR part 73, ``Physical Protection of Plants and Materials,'' Section 
73.71 requires licensees to report to the Operations Center of the 
Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) or to record in a log certain 
security events. Appendix G, ``Reportable Safeguards Events,'' to 10 
CFR part 73 (Appendix G) describes reporting requirements in detail. 
Appendix E to 10 CFR part 50 (Appendix E), ``Emergency Planning and 
Preparedness for Production and Utilization Facilities,'' provides more 
detailed information for emergency planning and preparedness. The 
events to be reported or recorded are those that represent actual or 
potential threats, suspicious activities, external attacks, or internal 
tampering with equipment that threaten or affect safe plant operations 
or effective security operations. The events to be recorded are those 
that affect or lessen the effectiveness of the security systems, 
components, and procedures as established by security regulations and 
the licensee's approved security plans.
    Proposed revisions to 10 CFR 73.71 included two new requirements 
for power reactors: (1) The reporting within 15 minutes after discovery 
of an actual or imminent threat against a facility, and (2) the 
reporting of suspicious surveillance activities or attempts at access, 
both of which are addressed in this guide.
