The NRC staff has no intention to impose the SRP positions on current licensees or already-issued regulatory approvals either now or in the future. The NRC staff does not intend to impose or apply the positions described in the draft SRP to existing (already issued) licenses and regulatory approvals. Hence, the issuance of a final SRP, even if considered guidance within the purview of the issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52, would not need to be evaluated as if it were a backfit or as being inconsistent with issue finality provisions. If, in the future, the NRC staff seeks to impose a position in the SRP on holders of already issued licenses in a manner that does not provide issue finality as described in the applicable issue finality provision, then the staff must make the showing as set forth in the Backfit Rule or address the criteria for avoiding issue finality as described in the applicable issue finality provision. 3. Backfitting and issue finality do not—with limited exceptions not applicable here—protect current or future applicants. Applicants and potential applicants are not, with certain exceptions, protected by either the Backfit Rule or any issue finality provisions under 10 CFR part 52. This is because neither the Backfit Rule nor the issue finality provisions under 10 CFR part 52—with certain exclusions discussed below— were intended to apply to every NRC action that substantially changes the expectations of current and future applicants. The exceptions to the general principle are applicable whenever an applicant references a 10 CFR part 52 license (e.g., an early site permit) and/ or NRC regulatory approval (e.g., a design certification rule) with specified issue finality provisions. The NRC staff does not, at this time, intend to impose the positions represented in the draft SRP in a manner that is inconsistent with any issue finality provisions. If, in the future, the staff seeks to impose a position in the draft SRP in a manner which does not provide issue finality as described in the applicable issue finality provisions, then the staff must address the criteria for avoiding issue finality as described in the applicable issue finality provision.

(‘‘BX’’ or ‘‘Exchange’’) a limited exemption from the Sub-Penny Rule in connection with the operation of the Exchange’s Retail Price Improvement Program (‘‘RPI Program’’).2 The limited exemption was granted concurrently with the Commission’s approval of the Exchange’s proposal to adopt the RPI Program on a one-year pilot term.3 On November 20, 2015, the Commission extended the temporary exemption until December 2016 concurrently with an immediately effective filing that extended the operation of the RPI Program until December 1, 2016.4 On December 1, 2016, the Commission extended the temporary exemption until December 1, 2017 concurrently with an immediately effective filing that extended the operation of the RPI Program until December 1, 2017.5 The Exchange now seeks to extend the exemption until June 30, 2018.6 The Exchange’s request was made in conjunction with an immediately effectively filing that extends the operation of the RPI Program until June 30, 2018.7 In its request to extend the exemption, the Exchange notes that given the gradual implementation of the RPI Program and the preliminary participation and results, extending the exemption would provide additional opportunities for greater participation 1 17 CFR 242.612(c). 2 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 73702, 79 FR 72049 (December 4, 2014) (SR–BX–2014–048) (‘‘RPI Approval Order’’). 3 See id. 4 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 76490 (November 20, 2015), 80 FR 74165 (November 27, 2015) (SR–BX–2015–073). 5 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 79446 (December 1, 2016), 81 FR 88290 (December 7, 2016) (SR–BX–2016–065). 6 See SR–BX–2017–055; see also Letter from Jeffrey Davis, Vice President and Deputy General Counsel and Secretary, Nasdaq BX, Inc. to Eduardo A.
