For each benchmark query, the Participants should provide the average, standard deviation, maximum, and minimum timeframes in which the OTQT returns results, as the Commission believes it is important to capture not only information regarding the average timeframes in which the OTQT returns results, but also information regarding the variability and consistency of the timeframes in which the OTQT returns results. In addition, for each benchmark query, the Participants should use all available CAT Data, including Participant data submitted by FINRA and national securities exchanges, data submitted by Industry Members,48 and other data. Finally, the Participants should provide monthly reports regarding any actual queries done by regulatory users with the average, standard deviation, maximum, and minimum timeframes in which the OTQT returns results for actual queries. All of the above-described measurements should be provided to the Operating Committee on a monthly basis and should be clearly set forth as factual indicators in the Quarterly Progress Reports required by Section 6.6(c) of the CAT NMS Plan. This condition will permit the Commission and the public to track the Participants’ progress towards meeting the abovedescribed CAT NMS Plan requirements and providing regulators with an effective OTQT by the July 31, 2023 deadline.49 Third, to better enable the Commission to monitor their progress towards meeting the parallel processing requirements of the CAT NMS Plan, the Participants would also be required, as a condition to this exemptive relief, to measure on a monthly basis, using benchmark queries, the time it takes to provide results to users from OTQT searches that are run concurrently with either 50–100, 100–200, or 200–300 queries, and to evaluate whether such results otherwise meet current CAT NMS Plan and SLA performance requirements for targeted and complex 48 ‘‘Industry Member’’ is a defined term under the CAT NMS Plan and means ‘‘means a member of a national securities exchange or a member of a national securities association.’’ See CAT NMS Plan, supra note 3, at Section 1.1. 49 Pursuant to Section 6.6(c)(ii) of the CAT NMS Plan, Quarterly Progress Reports must be filed with the Commission and made publicly available on each SRO’s website or collectively on the CAT NMS Plan website. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:30 Dec 21, 2020 Jkt 253001 queries. These measurements should be provided to the Operating Committee on a monthly basis and should be clearly set forth as factual indicators in the Quarterly Progress Reports required by Section 6.6(c) of the CAT NMS Plan. IV. Conclusion Accordingly, it is hereby ordered, pursuant to Section 36(a)(1) of the Exchange Act 50 and Rule 608(e) under the Exchange Act,51 that the Commission grants the Participants’ request for temporary exemptive relief, as set forth in the Participant Letter and subject to the conditions described herein, from the requirements in Section 8.1.1 of Appendix D of the CAT NMS Plan with respect to the Error Correction Rate Functionality until April 30, 2021 and from the requirements in Section 8.1.2 of Appendix D of the CAT NMS Plan with respect to the Search Return Functionality and the Simultaneous Query Functionality until July 31, 2023.
