Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has issued for public comment a draft regulatory guide in the agency’s ‘‘Regulatory Guide’’ series. VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:30 Nov 10, 2008 Jkt 217001 This series was 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 (DG), titled, ‘‘Concrete Radiation Shields and Generic Shield Testing for Nuclear Power Plants,’’ is temporarily identified by its task number, DG–1187, which should be mentioned in all related correspondence. DG–1187 is proposed Revision 1 of Regulatory Guide 1.69. This guide describes a method that the staff of the NRC considers acceptable for use in complying with the regulations for concrete radiation shields for nuclear power plants. As stated in Title 10, Section 20.1201, ‘‘Occupational Dose Limits for Adults,’’ of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR 20.1201), licensees shall control the occupational dose to individual adults to the limits stated therein. Furthermore, 10 CFR 20.1101(b) provides that licensees shall use, to the extent practicable, procedures and engineering controls based upon sound radiation principles to achieve occupational doses and doses to members of the public that are as low as reasonably achievable. General Design Criterion 1, ‘‘Quality Standards and Records,’’ of Appendix A, ‘‘Quality Design Criteria for Nuclear Power Plants,’’ to 10 CFR part 50, ‘‘Licensing of Production and Utilization Facilities,’’ requires that structures, systems, and components important to safety be designed, fabricated, erected, and tested to quality standards commensurate with the importance of the safety function to be performed. Appendix B, ‘‘Quality Assurance Criteria for Nuclear Power Plants and Fuel Reprocessing Plants,’’ to 10 CFR part 50 requires that measures be established to ensure design control and inspection and test controls. Appendix B also requires that activities affecting quality be accomplished under suitably controlled conditions. This guide describes some bases acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing the above requirements with regard to the design and construction of concrete radiation shields in nuclear power plants. II. Further Information The NRC staff is soliciting comments on DG–1187. Comments may be accompanied by relevant information or supporting data, and should mention DG–1187 in the subject line. Comments PO 00000 Frm 00117 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 66951 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).

On September 5, 2008, Nasdaq filed Amendment No. 1 to the proposed rule change. On September 25, 2008, Nasdaq filed Amendment No. 2 to the proposed rule change. The proposed rule change, as amended, was published for comment in the Federal Register on October 3, 2008.3 The Commission received no comments regarding the proposal. This order approves the proposed rule change, as modified by Amendment Nos. 1 and 2. Nasdaq distributes values for indexes and exchange traded funds (‘‘ETFs’’) through an index dissemination service. Through this service, Nasdaq calculates and disseminates the values of Nasdaq indexes, such as the Nasdaq-100, and, on occasion, non-Nasdaq indexes. Nasdaq also distributes information related to ETFs, including intra-day asset values. All market participants may subscribe to the index dissemination service. Nasdaq Rule 7019(b) sets forth the fees paid by distributors to receive various Nasdaq Market Center data feeds. Nasdaq proposes to delete the portion of Rule 7019(b) that relates to fees for the index dissemination service.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Introduction

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has issued for public 
comment a draft regulatory guide in the agency's ``Regulatory Guide'' 
series. This series was 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 (DG), titled, ``Concrete Radiation 
Shields and Generic Shield Testing for Nuclear Power Plants,'' is 
temporarily identified by its task number, DG-1187, which should be 
mentioned in all related correspondence. DG-1187 is proposed Revision 1 
of Regulatory Guide 1.69.
    This guide describes a method that the staff of the NRC considers 
acceptable for use in complying with the regulations for concrete 
radiation shields for nuclear power plants.
    As stated in Title 10, Section 20.1201, ``Occupational Dose Limits 
for Adults,'' of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR 20.1201), 
licensees shall control the occupational dose to individual adults to 
the limits stated therein. Furthermore, 10 CFR 20.1101(b) provides that 
licensees shall use, to the extent practicable, procedures and 
engineering controls based upon sound radiation principles to achieve 
occupational doses and doses to members of the public that are as low 
as reasonably achievable. General Design Criterion 1, ``Quality 
Standards and Records,'' of Appendix A, ``Quality Design Criteria for 
Nuclear Power Plants,'' to 10 CFR part 50, ``Licensing of Production 
and Utilization Facilities,'' requires that structures, systems, and 
components important to safety be designed, fabricated, erected, and 
tested to quality standards commensurate with the importance of the 
safety function to be performed. Appendix B, ``Quality Assurance 
Criteria for Nuclear Power Plants and Fuel Reprocessing Plants,'' to 10 
CFR part 50 requires that measures be established to ensure design 
control and inspection and test controls. Appendix B also requires that 
activities affecting quality be accomplished under suitably controlled 
conditions. This guide describes some bases acceptable to the NRC staff 
for implementing the above requirements with regard to the design and 
construction of concrete radiation shields in nuclear power plants.
