(TTY users may call the Federal Relay Service toll-free at 800–877–8339 and ask to be connected to 202–326– 4400, extension 6352.) Section 4010 of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) and PBGC’s regulation on Annual Financial and Actuarial Information Reporting (29 CFR part 4010) require each member of a controlled group to submit financial and actuarial information to PBGC under certain circumstances. Section 4010 specifies that each controlled group member must provide PBGC with certain financial information, including audited (if available) or (if not) unaudited financial statements. Section 4010 also specifies that the controlled group must provide PBGC with certain actuarial information necessary to determine the liabilities and assets for all PBGC-covered plans. PBGC’s 4010 regulation specifies the items of identifying, financial, and actuarial information that filers must submit under section 4010, through PBGC’s secure e-4010 web-based application. Computer-assisted analysis of this information helps PBGC to anticipate possible major demands on the pension insurance system and to focus PBGC resources on situations that pose the greatest risks to that system. Because other sources of information are usually not as current as the section 4010 information and do not reflect a plan’s termination liability, the section 4010 filing plays a major role in PBGC’s ability to protect participant and premium-payer interests. PBGC estimates that 560 controlled groups would file each year. The total estimated annual burden of the information collection would be approximately 532 hours and $12,830,000. The existing collection of information was approved under OMB control number 1212–0049 (expires July 31, 2019). PBGC intends to request that OMB extend approval of this information collection for another three years. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.

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 The purpose of the proposed rule change is to amend the Exchange’s provisions for excluding a day from its volume calculations for purposes of determining pricing tiers. The Exchange is standardizing its practice for removing a day from volume calculations in its Pricing Schedule with its affiliated options market, Nasdaq PHLX LLC (‘‘Phlx’’).3 Each change is discussed below. Background To avoid penalizing members when aberrant low volume days result from systems or other issues at the Exchange, or where the Exchange closes early for holiday observance, the Exchange currently has language in its Pricing Schedule allowing it to exclude certain days from its average daily volume (‘‘ADV’’) calculations. Currently, language in the Exchange’s Pricing Schedule provides that, for purposes of 3 See Phlx Pricing Schedule, Options 7, Section 1(b). The Exchange’s other affiliated options markets, Nasdaq ISE, Nasdaq GEMX, Nasdaq BX, and The Nasdaq Options Market will also file similar rule change proposals to conform to Phlx’s rule. PO 00000 Frm 00102 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 determining ADV for certain incentive programs,4 any day that the market is not open for the entire trading day or the Exchange instructs members in writing to route their orders to other markets may be excluded from such calculation; provided that the Exchange will only remove the day for members that would have a lower ADV with the day included. The proviso language (hereinafter, the ‘‘better of rule’’) ensures that members would only have the day removed when doing so is beneficial for the member. As such, the Exchange only applies the better of rule to ADV calculations, and not for other volume-based pricing where members would not benefit from having the day excluded (e.g., straight volume accumulations). Proposal In Options 7, Section 1, the Exchange proposes to adopt subsection (a) with the title ‘‘Removal of Days for Purposes of Pricing Tiers,’’ and renumber the existing first paragraph (related to fee disputes) as subsection (b). The Exchange also proposes to adopt new language in subsection (a) that is substantially similar to language currently in place on Phlx.5 Specifically, as proposed: (1)(A) Any day that the Exchange announces in advance that it will not be open for trading will be excluded from the options tier calculations set forth in its Pricing Schedule; and (B) any day with a scheduled early market close (‘‘Scheduled Early Close’’) may be excluded from the options tier calculations only pursuant to paragraph (3) below. (2) The Exchange may exclude the following days (‘‘Unanticipated Events’’) from the options tier calculations only pursuant to paragraph (3) below, specifically any day that: (A) The market is not open for the entire trading day, (B) the Exchange instructs members in writing to route their orders to other markets, (C) the Exchange is inaccessible to members during the 30minute period before the opening of trade due to an Exchange system disruption, or (D) the Exchange’s system experiences a disruption that lasts for more than 60 minutes during regular trading hours. (3) If a day is to be excluded as a result of paragraph (1)(B) or (2) above, the Exchange will exclude the day from 4 The current language in the Pricing Schedule applies to the calculations of Total Affiliated and/ or Appointed Member ADV used to determine tiered maker/taker fees for members.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 4010 of the Employee Retirement 
Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) and PBGC's regulation on Annual 
Financial and Actuarial Information Reporting (29 CFR part 4010) 
require each member of a controlled group to submit financial and 
actuarial information to PBGC under certain circumstances. Section 4010 
specifies that each controlled group member must provide PBGC with 
certain financial information, including audited (if available) or (if 
not) unaudited financial statements. Section 4010 also specifies that 
the controlled group must provide PBGC with certain actuarial 
information necessary to determine the liabilities and assets for all 
PBGC-covered plans.
    PBGC's 4010 regulation specifies the items of identifying, 
financial, and actuarial information that filers must submit under 
section 4010, through PBGC's secure e-4010 web-based application. 
Computer-assisted analysis of this information helps PBGC to anticipate 
possible major demands on the pension insurance system and to focus 
PBGC resources on situations that pose the greatest risks to that 
system. Because other sources of information are usually not as current 
as the section 4010 information and do not reflect a plan's termination 
liability, the section 4010 filing plays a major role in PBGC's ability 
to protect participant and premium-payer interests.
    PBGC estimates that 560 controlled groups would file each year. The 
total estimated annual burden of the information collection would be 
approximately 532 hours and $12,830,000.
    The existing collection of information was approved under OMB 
control number 1212-0049 (expires July 31, 2019). PBGC intends to 
request that OMB extend approval of this information collection for 
another three years. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person 
is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it 
displays a currently valid OMB control number.

    PBGC is soliciting public comments to--
     Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper
    performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the 
information will have practical utility;
     Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the 
burden of the proposed collection
    of information, including the validity of the methodologies and 
assumptions used;
     Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     Minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond,
    including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, 
mechanical, or other
    technological collection techniques or other forms of information 
technology, e.g.
    permitting electronic submission of responses.
