Notification of Proposed Delegation Programs and Request for Comment, 79437-79438 [2010-31861]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 243 / Monday, December 20, 2010 / Notices has asked the Commission to waive the 30-day operative delay so that the proposal may become operative immediately upon filing. The Exchange has represented that it is completing testing of a functionality that would enable the electronic acceptance of orders after 4 p.m., and if successful, the Exchange expects to be able to implement the new functionality by the end of December 2010. If the Exchange will not be able to implement the new functionality by that date, it will work with the Commission to set a new target date for implementation. The Exchange also has represented that it plans to file a proposed rule change to amend Rule 123C(9) to make the pilot permanent and to remove the limitation that only Floor brokers can represent interest after 4 p.m.12 The Commission believes that waiving the 30-day operative delay is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest because it will allow the pilot to continue uninterrupted, thereby permitting offsetting interest represented by floor brokers to alleviate extreme order imbalances occurring at the close until the Exchange is able to allow the electronic submission of such interest after 4 p.m. in such circumstances.13 Accordingly, the Commission waives the 30-day operative delay requirement and designates the proposed rule change operative upon filing with the Commission. At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule change, the Commission summarily may temporarily suspend such rule change if it appears to the Commission that such action is necessary or appropriate in the public interest, for the protection of investors, or otherwise in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. IV. Solicitation of Comments jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES Interested persons are invited to submit written data, views, and arguments concerning the foregoing, including whether the proposed rule change is consistent with the Act. Comments may be submitted by any of the following methods: proposed rule change, at least five business days prior to the filing of the proposed rule change, or such shorter time as designated by the Commission. The Commission notes that the Exchange has satisfied this requirement. 12 See NYSE Euronext E-mail, supra note 8. 13 For purposes only of waiving the 30-day operative delay, the Commission has considered the proposed rule’s impact on efficiency, competition, and capital formation.

Background

Air Operator ODA

    The FAA plans to establish two (2) new ODA program types in 
addition to those already established by FAA Order 8100.15, 
Organization Designation Authorization Procedures. Proposed revisions 
to FAA Order 8100.15 are available for review, and may be accessed at 
http://www.faa.gov/aircraft/draft_docs/.
    This new ODA program would allow organizations to conduct 
certification functions for the issuance of rotorcraft external-load 
operator certificates, in accordance with the requirements of 14 CFR 
part 133. The FAA anticipates a phased-in approach to this authority, 
with the FAA initially retaining authority for issuance of the 
certificate. The actual delegation of the issuance of the certificate 
would only be allowed after the ODA holder had successfully shown the 
ability to determine compliance with all aspects of 14 CFR part 133.
    Air Operator ODAs would be appointed and managed by the geographic 
Flight Standards District Office under the authority of the Director, 
Flight Standards Service. The FAA anticipates granting Air Operator ODA 
to only a small number of organizations based on the organization's 
experience and the FAA's need to delegate the authority.

Knowledge Testing ODA

    This new ODA program would allow organizations to administer 
automated airman tests and provide certified test results to 
applicants. These functions are currently performed by authorized 
Computer Testing Designees under the provisions of FAA Order 8080.6, 
Conduct of Airman Knowledge Tests. Consolidation of these functions 
under the ODA program will standardize and align their activities and 
the FAA's oversight, making them consistent with other forms of ODA 
programs.
    Knowledge Testing ODAs would be appointed and managed by The Flight 
Standards Airman Testing Standards Branch, AFS-630, under the authority 
of the Director, Flight Standards Service. The FAA anticipates that 
existing computer testing designees will desire to transition to the 
ODA program, and other organizations may be appointed as needed to make 
testing services available to the public.
