Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 17 / Wednesday, January 27, 2016 / Notices II. Discussion The NRC is issuing draft NUREG/CR– 7209, ‘‘A Compendium of Spent Fuel Transportation Package Response Analyses to Severe Fire Accident Scenarios.’’ This report summarizes studies of truck and rail transport accidents involving fires, relative to regulatory requirements for shipment of commercial spent nuclear fuel (SNF). The fire accident scenarios were based on the most severe historical railway and roadway fires in terms of their potential impact on SNF containers. The accident scenarios that were analyzed include one railway tunnel fire, two roadway tunnel fires, and one roadway enclosed overpass fire. The combined summary of this work demonstrates that the current NRC regulations and packaging standards provide a high degree of protection to the public health and safety against release of radioactive material in real-world transportation accidents, were such events to involve SNF containers. The purpose of this notice is to provide the public with an opportunity to review and provide comments on draft NUREG/CR–7209. Any comments received will be considered in the final version or subsequent revisions of the draft NUREG/CR. Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 21 day of January, 2016.

States have identified NRC inspections as one possible source of knowledge for their personnel regarding plant and materials licensee activities, and the NRC, through the policy statement on Cooperation with States, has been amenable to accommodating the States’ needs in this regard. Additionally, the NRC has been able to accommodate Tribal interests in the same way. The NRC has also entered into reimbursable Agreements with certain States under Section 274i of the Act, as amended, to employ their resources to conduct radioactive materials security inspections against NRC Orders.

The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons. I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of the Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The Exchange filed a proposal to extend the pilot period for the Exchange’s Retail Price Improvement (‘‘RPI’’) Program (the ‘‘Program’’), which is currently set to expire on January 31, 2016, for 6 months, to expire on July 31, 2016. The text of the proposed rule change is available at the Exchange’s Web site at www.batstrading.com, at the principal office of the Exchange, and at the Commission’s Public Reference Room. II. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change In its filing with the Commission, the Exchange included statements concerning the purpose of and basis for the proposed rule change and discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule change. The text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. The Exchange has prepared summaries, set forth in Sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant parts of such statements. A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose In November 2012, the Commission approved the RPI Program on a pilot basis.3 The Program is designed to attract retail order flow to the Exchange, and allows such order flow to receive potential price improvement. The Program is currently limited to trades occurring at prices equal to or greater than $1.00 per share. Under the Program, all Exchange Users 4 are permitted to provide potential price improvement for Retail Orders 5 in the 3 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 68303 (November 27, 2012), 77 FR 71652 (December 3, 2012) (‘‘RPI Approval Order’’) (SR–BYX–2012–019). 4 A ‘‘User’’ is defined in BYX Rule 1.5(cc) as any member or sponsored participant of the Exchange who is authorized to obtain access to the System. 5 A ‘‘Retail Order’’ is defined in Rule 11.24(a)(2) as an agency order that originates from a natural person and is submitted to the Exchange by a RMO, provided that no change is made to the terms of the PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 form of non-displayed interest that is better than the national best bid that is a Protected Quotation (‘‘Protected NBB’’) or the national best offer that is a Protected Quotation (‘‘Protected NBO’’, and together with the Protected NBB, the ‘‘Protected NBBO’’).6 The Program was approved by the Commission on a pilot basis running one-year from the date of implementation.7 The Commission approved the Program on November 27, 2012.8 The Exchange implemented the Program on January 11, 2013, and has extended the pilot period two times.9 The pilot period for the Program is scheduled to end on January 31, 2016. Proposal to Extend the Operation of the Program The Exchange established the RPI Program in an attempt to attract retail order flow to the Exchange by potentially providing price improvement to such order flow. The Exchange believes that the Program promotes competition for retail order flow by allowing Exchange members to submit Retail Price Improvement Orders (‘‘RPI Orders’’) 10 to interact with Retail Orders. Such competition has the ability to promote efficiency by facilitating the price discovery process and generating order with respect to price or side of market and the order does not originate from a trading algorithm or any computerized methodology. See Rule 11.24(a)(2). 6 The term Protected Quotation is defined in BYX Rule 1.5(t) and has the same meaning as is set forth in Regulation NMS Rule 600(b)(58). The terms Protected NBB and Protected NBO are defined in BYX Rule 1.5(s). The Protected NBB is the bestpriced protected bid and the Protected NBO is the best-priced protected offer. Generally, the Protected NBB and Protected NBO and the national best bid (‘‘NBB’’) and national best offer (‘‘NBO’’, together with the NBB, the ‘‘NBBO’’) will be the same. However, a market center is not required to route to the NBB or NBO if that market center is subject to an exception under Regulation NMS Rule 611(b)(1) or if such NBB or NBO is otherwise not available for an automatic execution. In such case, the Protected NBB or Protected NBO would be the best-priced protected bid or offer to which a market center must route interest pursuant to Regulation NMS Rule 611. 7 See RPI Approval Order, supra note 3 at 71652. 8 Id. 9 See Securities Exchange Act Release Nos. 71249 (January 7, 2014), 79 FR 2229 (January 13, 2014) (SR–BYX–2014–001) (Notice of Filing and Immediate Effectiveness of a Proposed Rule Change to Extend the Pilot Period for the Retail Price Improvement Program); 74111 (January 22, 2015), 80 FR 4598 (January 28, 2015) (SR–BYX–2015–05) (Notice of Filing and Immediate Effectiveness of a Proposed Rule Change to Extend the Pilot Period for BATS Y-Exchange, Inc.’s Retail Price Improvement (‘‘RPI’’) Program for 12 Months, To Expire on January 31, 2016). 10 A ‘‘Retail Price Improvement Order’’ is defined in Rule 11.24(a)(3) as an order that consists of nondisplayed interest on the Exchange that is priced better than the Protected NBB or Protected NBO by at least $0.001 and that is identified as such. See Rule 11.24(a)(3). E:\FR\FM\27JAN1.SGM 27JAN1
