The experimental data will be used by the NRC to determine the adequacy of existing HEAF ZOIs presented in NUREG/CR– 6850, Appendix M and Supplement 1 and to adjust existing methodology as necessary. The phase 2 testing will also focus on the HEAF involving aluminum components as it pertains to both increased physical damage states and electrical conductive products of combustion concerns. This test program is also being proposed internationally through the OECD and the NEA as a collaborative international nuclear safety research program. This document is not intended for interim use. The NRC will review public comments received on the document, incorporate suggested changes as appropriate, and make the final test plan available. Consistent with past experimental programs, the final test plan will be considered a living document. Changes to the final test plan can, and likely will be made during the testing phase as insights and observations from the testing develop that would suggest changes are necessary to ensure valuable data from experiments is being obtained. Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 27th day of July, 2017. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Mark Henry Salley, Chief, Fire and External Hazard Analysis Branch, Division of Risk Analysis, Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research.

Notice. AGENCY: ACTION: The Commission is providing notice of its adjustment to the procedural schedule to allow for additional time to file comments regarding the Postal Service’s filing amending prices and classification language for Move Update. This notice informs the public of the filing, invites public comment, and takes other administrative steps. DATES: Comments are due August 9, 2017. ADDRESSES: Submit comments electronically via the Commission’s sradovich on DSKBCFCHB2PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:43 Aug 01, 2017 Jkt 241001 Filing Online system at https:// www.prc.gov. Those who cannot submit comments electronically should contact the person identified in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section by telephone for advice on filing alternatives. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: David A. Trissell, General Counsel, at (202) 789–6820. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On June 30, 2017, the Postal Service filed a notice of market dominant price adjustment and classification changes in accordance with 39 U.S.C. 3622 and 39 CFR part 3010.1 On July 3, 2017, Order No. 3990 established the procedural schedule for this proceeding, including a comment deadline of July 20, 2017.2 By rule, the Commission determines, at a minimum, whether the planned adjustment is consistent with the price cap 14 days following the comment deadline. See 39 CFR 3010.11(d). These dates are predicated on complete information being available for parties to comment on and the Commission to review. See, e.g., 39 CFR 3010.12(b)(3).3 This case represents a series of changes relating to the Move Update assessment charge, where complete information regarding the potential price cap impacts of the changes was not available with the Postal Service’s initial filing, prompting several Chairman’s Information Requests.4 1 United States Postal Service Notice of Market Dominant Price Adjustment and Classification Changes, June 30, 2017 (Notice). 2 Notice and Order on Price Adjustment for Move Update, July 3, 2017 (Order No. 3990). Comments for market dominant rate adjustments are due 20 days after the date of filing, pursuant to 39 CFR 3010.11(a)(5). 3 39 CFR 3010.12(b)(3) requires that the Postal Service include with its notice of rate adjustment ‘‘{t}he percentage change in rates for each class of mail calculated as required by § 3010.23.’’ It further requires that this information ‘‘be supported by workpapers in which all calculations are shown and all input values, including current rates, new rates, and billing determinants, are listed with citations to the original sources.’’ Id. 39 CFR 3010.23(d)(2) requires that the Postal Service ‘‘make reasonable adjustments to the billing determinants to account for the effects of classification changes such as the introduction, deletion, or redefinition of rate cells.’’ 39 CFR 3010.23(d)(2). In making those adjustments, the Postal Service is required to ‘‘identify and explain all adjustments’’ and provide ‘‘{a}ll information and calculations relied upon to develop the adjustments . . . with an explanation of why the adjustments are appropriate.’’ Id. 4 The Postal Service proposes an increase to the Move Update assessment charge, an updated enforcement method for the charge, and a change to the threshold for its tolerance of change of address (COA) errors. Notice at 1; id. n.1. There have been five Chairman’s Information Requests issued in this case: Chairman’s Information Request No. 1, July 5, 2017; Chairman’s Information Request No. 2, July 7, 2017 (CHIR No. 2); Chairman’s Information Request No. 3, July 13, 2017 (CHIR No. 3); Chairman’s Information Request No. 4, July 20, PO 00000 Frm 00082 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 36007 Comments filed July 20, 2017, did not have the benefit of the Postal Service’s responses to CHIR No. 3 or CHIR No. 4 (and had only one day to review and consider the Postal Service’s response to CHIR No. 2). The Association for Postal Commerce notes that ‘‘a few elements in the Postal Service’s filing, and in its proposed Move Update assessment process generally, . . . warrant further explanation.’’ 5 The Commission, due to the potential importance of this missing information to the issues of the proceeding (for both informed comments and the Commission’s review), finds that commenters and its own review would be prejudiced without equitably tolling the time of filing (and deadlines set by that time of filing). Therefore, the Commission finds it necessary to constructively adjust (toll) the filing date for Postal Service’s Notice to July 20, 2017, at which time the Postal Service had provided the bulk of the information necessary to evaluate the potential impacts of proposed changes in its Notice. As a result, commenters may file additional comments by August 9, 2017.6 Likewise, the date required by 39 CFR 3010.11(d) for the Commission’s determination shall be August 23, 2017. It is ordered: 1. Any additional comments are due by August 9, 2017. 2. The Commission’s determination, pursuant to 39 CFR 3010.11(d) shall be filed by August 23, 2017. 3. The Secretary shall arrange for publication of this order in the Federal Register. By the Commission. Ruth Ann Abrams, Acting Secretary.

The proposed rule change is available on the Exchange’s Web site at www.nyse.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 self-regulatory organization 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 those 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 the Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose In connection with the September 5, 2017 compliance date for shortening of the standard settlement cycle from T+3 to T+2, the Exchange proposes to (1) delete Rule 282.65 and Section 703.02 (part 2) of the Listed Company Manual; (2) delete the preamble and ‘‘T’’ modifier from Rule 282.65T and Section 703.02T of the Listed Company Manual; and (3) establish the operative date of Rule 282.65T and Section 703.02T of the Listed Company Manual as September 5, 2017.

Certain of these rules have since been deleted in connection with the Exchange’s elimination of non-regular way trading.6 In order to reduce the potential for confusion regarding which version of the rule governs, the Exchange added explanatory preambles, provided below. In particular, the following preamble was added to the Rule 282.65 and Section 703.02 (part 2): ‘‘This version of . . . will remain operative until the Exchange files separate proposed rule changes as necessary to establish the operative date of . . . , to delete this version of . . . and preamble, and to remove the preamble text from the version of . . . . In addition to filing the necessary proposed rule changes, the Exchange will announce via Information Memo the operative date of the deletion of this Rule and implementation of . . .’’ The following preamble was added to the Rule 282.65T and Section 703.02T: ‘‘The Exchange will file separate proposed rule changes to establish the operative date of . . . , to delete . . . and the preamble text from . . . , and to remove the preamble text from the version of . . . . Until such time, . . . will remain operative. In addition to filing the necessary proposed rule changes, the Exchange will announce via Information Memo the implementation of this Rule and the operative date of the deletion of . . .’’ On March 22, 2017, the SEC adopted the proposed amendment to Rule 15c6– 1(a) under the Act 7 with a compliance date of September 5, 2017.8 Proposed Rule Change In order to comply with the September 5, 2017, transition to T+2 settlement, the Exchange proposes to: • Delete Rule 282.65 and Section 703.02 (part 2), including the preambles, in their entirety; 4 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 78962 (September 28, 2016), 81 FR 69240 (October 5, 2016) (File No. S7–22–16). 5 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 80021 (February 104, 2017), 82 FR 10931 (February 16, 2017) (SR–NYSE–2016–87). 6 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 811762 (July 20, 2017) (SR–NYSE–2017–33). 7 See 17 CFR 240.15c6–1(a). 8 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 80295 (March 22, 2017), 82 FR 15564 (March 29, 2017) (File No. S7–22–16).
