ATTACHMENT—Order Approving Indirect Transfer of Facility Operating License and Conforming Amendment In the Matter of Aerotest Operations, Inc.; Aerotest Radiography and Research Reactor; [Docket No. 50–228; License No. R–98; EA– 17–002; NRC–2012–0286] (EFFECTIVE UPON ISSUANCE) I. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Aerotest Operations, Inc. (Aerotest) is the holder of Facility Operating License No. R– 98 for the Aerotest Radiography and Research Reactor (ARRR), located in San Ramon, Contra Costa County, California. Aerotest is a wholly owned subsidiary of OEA Aerospace, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of OEA, Inc., which, in turn, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Autoliv ASP, Inc. (Autoliv). The ultimate owner is Autoliv, Inc. II. By application dated May 30, 2012, as supplemented by letters dated July 19, 2012; October 15, 2012; January 10, 2013; April 21, 2016; June 16, 2016; August 22, 2016; and October 10, 2016, Aerotest and Nuclear Labyrinth LLC (Nuclear Labyrinth) (collectively, ‘‘the applicants’’) requested U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) approval, pursuant to Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), Section 50.80 (10 CFR 50.80), of the indirect transfer of control of the license for the ARRR. The indirect transfer of control would involve the transfer of ownership of Aerotest from OEA Aerospace, Inc. to Nuclear Labyrinth, and would result from the acquisition of Aerotest by Nuclear Labyrinth through a stock transfer. Nuclear Labyrinth would indirectly own 100 percent of the ARRR through its ownership of Aerotest. There would be no direct transfer of the license. Aerotest would continue to own and operate the facility and hold the license. Although the license would be amended for administrative purposes to reflect the transfer, no physical changes to the ARRR facility or operational changes were proposed in the application. Except for the installation of the Chief Executive Officer and sole owner of Nuclear Labyrinth, Dr. David Slaughter, as president of Aerotest, no management or organizational changes were proposed. By the application dated May 30, 2012, as supplemented by letters dated July 19, 2012, October 15, 2012, and January 10, 2013, the applicants originally requested NRC consent for the subject indirect license transfer. By letter dated July 24, 2013, the NRC staff denied the applicants’ original indirect license transfer application on the grounds that the applicants had failed to satisfy the NRC’s financial qualifications requirements and that the applicants had not shown that there would be sufficient funds to cover the annual cost of fuel storage until the U.S. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:37 Mar 09, 2017 Jkt 241001 Department of Energy accepts the fuel once the facility permanently ceases operations. The applicants filed a joint demand for a hearing on the denial and, on August 12, 2014, a hearing was conducted, at which the applicants presented new information, relevant to the indirect license transfer application, which had not previously been provided to the NRC staff. Based on the information presented by the applicants and the NRC staff at the hearing, the Commission issued an order, dated December 23, 2015, remanding the license transfer application to the NRC staff for further consideration. Subsequently, the applicants further supplemented the application by letters dated April 21, 2016, June 16, 2016, August 22, 2016, and October 10, 2016. A notice entitled ‘‘Aerotest Operations, Inc.; Aerotest Radiography and Research Reactor; Consideration of Approval of Indirect License Transfer and Conforming Amendment’’ was published in the Federal Register on September 23, 2016 (81 FR 65677). No comments or hearing requests were received. Under 10 CFR 50.80, no license, or any right thereunder, shall be transferred, directly or indirectly, through transfer of control of the license, unless the NRC gives its consent in writing. Upon review of the information in the application, as supplemented, and other information before the Commission, the NRC staff has determined that the indirect transfer of Facility Operating License No. R–98, as described above, is consistent with the applicable provisions of law, regulations, and orders issued by the NRC, pursuant thereto, subject to the conditions set forth below. The NRC staff has further found that the application for the proposed amendment to the license for administrative purposes to reflect the indirect license transfer complies with the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the Commission’s rules and regulations set forth in 10 CFR Chapter I; the facility will operate in conformity with the application, the provisions of the Act, and the rules and regulations of the Commission; there is reasonable assurance that the activities authorized by the proposed license amendment can be conducted without endangering the health and safety of the public and that such activities will be conducted in compliance with the Commission’s regulations; the issuance of the proposed license amendment will not be inimical to the common defense and security or to the health and safety of the public; and the issuance of the proposed amendment will be in accordance with 10 CFR part 51 of the Commission’s regulations and all applicable requirements have been satisfied. The findings set forth above are supported by a safety evaluation dated February 28, 2017. III. Accordingly, pursuant to Sections 161b, 161i, and 184 of the Act, 42 U.S.C. Sections 2201(b), 2201(i), and 2234; and 10 CFR 50.80, it is hereby ordered that the application regarding the proposed indirect license transfer, as described herein, is approved, subject to the following conditions: 1.

Pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’),1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 notice is hereby given that on February 21, 2017, NASDAQ BX, Inc. (‘‘BX’’ or ‘‘Exchange’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘SEC’’ or 2 17 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:37 Mar 09, 2017 Jkt 241001 I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The Exchange proposes to clarify that BX Options Market port fees and other services in Chapter VX, Section 3 of BX Rules are not prorated. The text of the proposed rule change is available on the Exchange’s Web site at http://nasdaqbx.cchwallstreet.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 aspects of such statements. A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose BILLING CODE 7590–01–P 1 15 ‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change as described in Items I and II below, which Items have been prepared by the Exchange. The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons. The purpose of the proposed rule change is to include language within Chapter XV, Section 3 to clarify that the port fees and other services noted in this section are not subject to proration. Chapter XV, Section 3, entitled ‘‘BX Options Market—Ports and other Services’’ includes pricing for TradeInfo BX,3 various port fees and an Extranet Access Fee.4 The port fees include 3 TradeInfo allows a BX Options Participant to scan for all orders it submitted to BX Options in a particular security or all orders of a particular type, regardless of their status (open, canceled, executed, etc.) [sic] Also, it permits a participant to cancel open orders at the port or firm mnemonic level. TradeInfo allows a BX Options Participant to manage its order flow and mitigate risk by giving users the ability to view its orders and executions, as well as the ability to perform cancels at the port or firm mnemonic level. Finally, TradeInfo BX has the ability download records of orders and executions for recordkeeping purposes. 4 The Extranet Access Fee is a monthly access fee per recipient Customer Premises Equipment (‘‘CPE’’) Configuration. A ‘‘Customer Premises PO 00000 Frm 00065 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 13369 Order Entry Ports,5 CTI Ports,6 BX Depth Ports,7 BX TOP Ports,8 Order Entry DROP Ports 9 and SQF Ports.10 Equipment Configuration’’ means any line, circuit, router package, or other technical configuration used by an extranet provider to provide a direct access connection to the Exchange market data feeds to a recipient’s site. 5 The Order Entry Port Fee is a connectivity fee in connection with routing orders to the Exchange via an external order entry port. BX Options Market Participants access the Exchange’s network through order entry ports. A BX Options Market Participant may have more than one order entry port. 6 CTI offers real-time clearing trade updates. A real-time clearing trade update is a message that is sent to a member after an execution has occurred and contains trade details. The message containing the trade details is also simultaneously sent to The Options Clearing Corporation. The trade messages are routed to a member’s connection containing certain information. The administrative and market event messages include, but are not limited to: System event messages to communicate operational-related events; options directory messages to relay basic option symbol and contract information for options traded on the Exchange; complex strategy messages to relay information for those strategies traded on the Exchange; trading action messages to inform market participants when a specific option or strategy is halted or released for trading on the Exchange; and an indicator which distinguishes electronic and non-electronically delivered orders. 7 A BX Depth Port provides access to BX Depth, which is a data feed that provides quotation information for individual orders on the BX book, last sale information for trades executed on BX, and Order Imbalance Information as set forth in BX Options Rules Chapter VI, Section 8. BX Depth is the options equivalent of the BX TotalView/ITCH data feed that BX offers under BX Rule 7023 with respect to equities traded on BX. As with TotalView, members use BX Depth to ‘‘build’’ their view of the BX book by adding individual orders that appear on the feed, and subtracting individual orders that are executed. See Chapter VI, Section 1(a)(3)(A). 8 BX TOP Port is a data feed that provides the BX Best Bid and Offer (‘‘BBO’’) and last sale information for trades executed on BX. The BBO and last sale information are identical to the information that BX sends to the Options Price Regulatory Authority (‘‘OPRA’’) and which OPRA disseminates via the consolidated data feed for options. BX TOP Port is the options equivalent of the BX Basic data feed offered for equities under BX Rule 7047. See Chapter VI, Section 1(a)(3)(B). 9 The DROP interface provides real time information regarding orders sent to the BX Options Market and executions that occurred on the BX Options Market. The DROP interface is not a trading interface and does not accept order messages. 10 SQF is an interface that allows BX Market Makers to connect and send quotes and sweeps into the System.

ATTACHMENT--Order Approving Indirect Transfer of Facility Operating 
License and Conforming Amendment

In the Matter of Aerotest Operations, Inc.; Aerotest Radiography and 
Research Reactor; [Docket No. 50-228; License No. R-98; EA-17-002; NRC-
2012-0286] (EFFECTIVE UPON ISSUANCE)

I.

    Aerotest Operations, Inc. (Aerotest) is the holder of Facility 
Operating License No. R-98 for the Aerotest Radiography and Research 
Reactor (ARRR), located in San Ramon, Contra Costa County, 
California. Aerotest is a wholly owned subsidiary of OEA Aerospace, 
Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of OEA, Inc., which, in turn, is a 
wholly owned subsidiary of Autoliv ASP, Inc. (Autoliv). The ultimate 
owner is Autoliv, Inc.

II.

    By application dated May 30, 2012, as supplemented by letters 
dated July 19, 2012; October 15, 2012; January 10, 2013; April 21, 
2016; June 16, 2016; August 22, 2016; and October 10, 2016, Aerotest 
and Nuclear Labyrinth LLC (Nuclear Labyrinth) (collectively, ``the 
applicants'') requested U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) 
approval, pursuant to Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations 
(10 CFR), Section 50.80 (10 CFR 50.80), of the indirect transfer of 
control of the license for the ARRR. The indirect transfer of 
control would involve the transfer of ownership of Aerotest from OEA 
Aerospace, Inc. to Nuclear Labyrinth, and would result from the 
acquisition of Aerotest by Nuclear Labyrinth through a stock 
transfer. Nuclear Labyrinth would indirectly own 100 percent of the 
ARRR through its ownership of Aerotest. There would be no direct 
transfer of the license. Aerotest would continue to own and operate 
the facility and hold the license. Although the license would be 
amended for administrative purposes to reflect the transfer, no 
physical changes to the ARRR facility or operational changes were 
proposed in the application. Except for the installation of the 
Chief Executive Officer and sole owner of Nuclear Labyrinth, Dr. 
David Slaughter, as president of Aerotest, no management or 
organizational changes were proposed.
    By the application dated May 30, 2012, as supplemented by 
letters dated July 19, 2012, October 15, 2012, and January 10, 2013, 
the applicants originally requested NRC consent for the subject 
indirect license transfer. By letter dated July 24, 2013, the NRC 
staff denied the applicants' original indirect license transfer 
application on the grounds that the applicants had failed to satisfy 
the NRC's financial qualifications requirements and that the 
applicants had not shown that there would be sufficient funds to 
cover the annual cost of fuel storage until the U.S. Department of 
Energy accepts the fuel once the facility permanently ceases 
operations. The applicants filed a joint demand for a hearing on the 
denial and, on August 12, 2014, a hearing was conducted, at which 
the applicants presented new information, relevant to the indirect 
license transfer application, which had not previously been provided 
to the NRC staff. Based on the information presented by the 
applicants and the NRC staff at the hearing, the Commission issued 
an order, dated December 23, 2015, remanding the license transfer 
application to the NRC staff for further consideration. 
Subsequently, the applicants further supplemented the application by 
letters dated April 21, 2016, June 16, 2016, August 22, 2016, and 
October 10, 2016.
    A notice entitled ``Aerotest Operations, Inc.; Aerotest 
Radiography and Research Reactor; Consideration of Approval of 
Indirect License Transfer and Conforming Amendment'' was published 
in the Federal Register on September 23, 2016 (81 FR 65677). No 
comments or hearing requests were received.
    Under 10 CFR 50.80, no license, or any right thereunder, shall 
be transferred, directly or indirectly, through transfer of control 
of the license, unless the NRC gives its consent in writing. Upon 
review of the information in the application, as supplemented, and 
other information before the Commission, the NRC staff has 
determined that the indirect transfer of Facility Operating License 
No. R-98, as described above, is consistent with the applicable 
provisions of law, regulations, and orders issued by the NRC, 
pursuant thereto, subject to the conditions set forth below. The NRC 
staff has further found that the application for the proposed 
amendment to the license for administrative purposes to reflect the 
indirect license transfer complies with the standards and 
requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), 
and the Commission's rules and regulations set forth in 10 CFR 
Chapter I; the facility will operate in conformity with the 
application, the provisions of the Act, and the rules and 
regulations of the Commission; there is reasonable assurance that 
the activities authorized by the proposed license amendment can be 
conducted without endangering the health and safety of the public 
and that such activities will be conducted in compliance with the 
Commission's regulations; the issuance of the proposed license 
amendment will not be inimical to the common defense and security or 
to the health and safety of the public; and the issuance of the 
proposed amendment will be in accordance with 10 CFR part 51 of the 
Commission's regulations and all applicable requirements have been 
satisfied. The findings set forth above are supported by a safety 
evaluation dated February 28, 2017.

III.

    Accordingly, pursuant to Sections 161b, 161i, and 184 of the 
Act, 42 U.S.C. Sections 2201(b), 2201(i), and 2234; and 10 CFR 
50.80, it is hereby ordered that the application regarding the 
proposed indirect license transfer, as described herein, is 
approved, subject to the following conditions:
    1. A cash secured irrevocable standby letter of credit from a 
federally insured bank in the amount of $300,000 that conforms to 
the guidance provided in NRC Regulatory Guide 1.159 must be executed 
at the time of, or before, the transfer.
    2. A decommissioning trust fund for the Aerotest Radiography and 
Research Reactor (ARRR) that conforms to the guidance provided in 
NRC Regulatory Guide 1.159 must be established at the time of, or 
before, the transfer.
    3. Autoliv, Inc. shall enter into a Funding Agreement with 
Nuclear Labyrinth, LLC (Nuclear Labyrinth) at the time of, or 
before, the transfer. Written notice must be given to the NRC of any 
changes to the Funding Agreement.
    4. The Funding Agreement between Autoliv, Inc. and Nuclear 
Labyrinth shall provide that upon the closing of the transaction of 
the acquisition by Nuclear Labyrinth of all of the issued and 
outstanding shares of stock of Aerotest Operations, Inc. (Aerotest) 
from the previous ultimate owner of this stock, Autoliv, Inc., or 
its subsidiaries, will make the following transfers of funds:
    A. The sum of $943,225 to an account designated in writing by 
Nuclear Labyrinth for the benefit of Aerotest intended to fund the 
operations and maintenance costs of the ARRR for approximately 12 
months (Operating Funds). The Operating Funds may only be used as 
needed to fund the operations and maintenance costs of the ARRR and 
may not be used by Nuclear Labyrinth for any other purpose. Upon the 
written request of Aerotest, Nuclear Labyrinth shall distribute such 
funds from the Operating Funds as Aerotest determines to be 
necessary to operate and maintain the ARRR.
    B. The sum of $3,376,030 to the decommissioning trust fund for 
the ARRR.
    C. The sum of $742,410 (plus the interest on this sum to be 
calculated from October 1, 2010, to the date of acquisition based on 
the 13-week Treasury bill rate) and the sum of $625,000 to a 
segregated account in the decommissioning trust fund for the ARRR 
(Nuclear Fuel Disposal Funds). The Nuclear Fuel Disposal Funds may 
only be used to fund the disposal of the ARRR's nuclear fuel 
elements pursuant to U.S. Department of Energy Contract DE-CR01-
83NE44484, as amended, and to fund the acquisition of fuel element 
storage casks, respectively, and may not be used for any other 
purpose.
    D. The sum of $1,500,000 to the financial protection standby 
trust for the ARRR.
    E. The sum of $1,125,000 to a segregated account in the 
decommissioning trust fund for the ARRR (Spent Fuel Management 
Funds). The Spent Fuel Management Funds may only be used to fund the 
management of the ARRR's nuclear fuel elements after the permanent 
cessation of operations of the ARRR and before the acceptance of the 
fuel by the U.S. Department of Energy.
    It is further ordered that, consistent with 10 CFR 2.1315(b), 
the conforming license amendment that makes administrative changes 
to reflect the subject indirect license transfer is approved. The 
amendment shall be issued and made effective at the time the 
proposed indirect license transfer action is completed.
    It is further ordered that, after receipt of all required 
regulatory approvals of the

[[Page 13369]]

proposed indirect license transfer action, Aerotest shall inform the 
Director of the Division of Policy and Rulemaking in writing of such 
receipt and of the date of closing of the transfer no later than 7 
business days prior to the date of the closing of the transfer. 
Should the proposed indirect license transfer not be completed by 
February 28, 2018, this Order shall become null and void, provided, 
however, that upon written application and for good cause shown, 
such date may be extended by order.
    This Order is effective upon issuance.
    For further details with respect to this Order, see the 
application dated May 30, 2012, as supplemented by letters dated 
July 19, 2012, October 15, 2012, January 10, 2013, April 21, 2016,
