These comments were addressed in the revised SER. III. Finding of No Significant Impact The proposed action consists of the NRC approval of NorthStar’s alternate disposal request under 10 CFR 20.2002 and USEI’s exemption request under 10 CFR 30.11. The NRC staff has prepared this EA in support of the proposed action. On the basis of this EA and NUREG–0586, Supplement 1, which is incorporated by reference, the NRC finds that the proposed action will not have a significant effect on the quality of the human environment, and therefore, the preparation of an environmental impact statement is not warranted. Accordingly, the NRC has determined that a FONSI is appropriate. IV.

Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose The Exchange proposes to amend the Exchange’s Rulebook 5 and Fee Schedule 6 as part of a non-substantive marketing effort to rebrand the Exchange’s affiliate, MIAX Pearl. Pursuant to this proposal, the Exchange proposes to rebrand references to its affiliate’s name, from the fullycapitalized words ‘‘MIAX PEARL’’ to now be ‘‘MIAX Pearl,’’ throughout the Exchange’s Rulebook and the Fee Schedule.7 The Exchange does not propose to amend references to the legal entity’s name, ‘‘MIAX PEARL, LLC,’’ and the rebranded term ‘‘MIAX Pearl’’ will represent the same entity as the legal name, ‘‘MIAX PEARL.’’ Specifically, with the proposed rebranding, references in the Exchange’s Rulebook and Fee Schedule to ‘‘MIAX PEARL’’ will be rebranded to ‘‘MIAX Pearl.’’ The rebranding of references to ‘‘MIAX PEARL’’ to now be to ‘‘MIAX Pearl’’ consists of non-substantive changes due to a recent rebranding effort conducted by the Exchange, as well as its affiliates, MIAX Pearl and MIAX Emerald, LLC (‘‘MIAX Emerald’’). The Exchange proposes to implement the rebranding changes for marketing purposes. With the rebranding changes, the term ‘‘MIAX Pearl’’ will be consistent with how its affiliate, ‘‘MIAX Emerald,’’ is named. The Exchange notes that no changes to the ownership or structure of MIAX Pearl have taken place and that the term ‘‘MIAX Pearl’’ will represent the same entity as the legal entity’s name, ‘‘MIAX PEARL.’’ In lieu of providing a copy of the marked changes, the Exchange represents that it will make the necessary non-substantive revisions to the Exchange’s Rulebook and the Fee Schedule and post updated versions of each on the Exchange’s website pursuant to Rule 19b–4(m)(2).8 Additionally, the Exchange’s affiliate, MIAX Emerald, intends to file a similar 5 See MIAX Rulebook, as of Apr. 13, 2021, available at: https://www.miaxoptions.com/sites/ default/files/page-files/MIAX_Options_Exchange_ Rules_04132021.pdf. 6 See MIAX Fee Schedule, as of Apr. 12, 2021, available at: https://www.miaxoptions.com/sites/ default/files/fee_schedule-files/MIAX_Options_Fee_ Schedule_04122021.pdf. 7 All references to MIAX Pearl’s legal name will remain ‘‘MIAX PEARL, LLC.’’ This includes the reference to ‘‘MIAX PEARL, LLC’’ in Exchange Rule 100 for the definition of ‘‘MIAX PEARL.’’ For marketing purposes throughout the Rulebook and Fee Schedule, MIAX Pearl will otherwise be referred to as ‘‘MIAX Pearl.’’ 8 17 CFR 240.19b–4(m)(2).

The Exchange notes that this filing is based on a similar proposal recently filed by MIAX Pearl to amend MIAX Pearl’s Rulebook and Fee Schedules to reflect these same rebranding efforts.9 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that its proposed rule change is consistent with Section 6(b) of the Act 10 in general, and furthers the objectives of Section 6(b)(5) of the Act 11 in particular, in that it is designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, promotes just and equitable principles of trade, fosters cooperation and coordination with persons engaged in facilitating transactions in securities, removes impediments to and perfects the mechanisms of a free and open market and a national market system and, in general, protects investors and the public interest because the proposal will eliminate potential confusion on the part of market participants using the products and services of the Exchange in light of the corporate rebranding that the Exchange and its affiliates, MIAX Pearl and MIAX Emerald, have undergone. The Exchange also believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with Section 6(b)(1) of the Act 12 in that it aims to continue to ensure that the Exchange has the capacity to carry out the purposes of the Act and to enforce compliance by its Members 13 with the provisions of the Act as well as the rules and regulations thereunder. The Exchange proposes to amend the Rulebook and the Fee Schedule to rebrand references to ‘‘MIAX PEARL’’ to now be ‘‘MIAX Pearl.’’ The proposed rebrand consists of non-substantive changes to the Rulebook and the Fee Schedule of the Exchange so that the term ‘‘MIAX Pearl,’’ is consistent with its affiliate’s name, ‘‘MIAX Emerald,’’ as part of a broader marketing effort by the Exchange and its affiliates, MIAX Pearl and MIAX Emerald. Therefore, the Exchange believes that the rebrand will protect investors and the public interest 9 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 91537 (March 30, 2021), 86 FR 20216 (April 16, 2021) (Notice of Filing and Immediate Effectiveness of File No. SR–PEARL–2021–08). 10 15 U.S.C. 78f(b). 11 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5). 12 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(1). 13 The term ‘‘Member’’ means an individual or organization approved to exercise the trading rights associated with a Trading Permit. Members are deemed ‘‘members’’ under the Exchange Act. See Exchange Rule 100. PO 00000 Frm 00098 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 24679 by eliminating confusion that may exist because of differences in the other naming conventions of MIAX Pearl. No changes to the ownership or structure of MIAX Pearl have taken place. The Exchange notes that the term ‘‘MIAX Pearl’’ will represent the same entity as ‘‘MIAX PEARL.’’ The Exchange notes that its affiliate, MIAX Emerald, will file a similar proposal to amend its Rulebook and Fee Schedule to rebrand references to ‘‘MIAX PEARL’’ to now be to ‘‘MIAX Pearl,’’ to provide uniformity among the Exchange, MIAX Pearl and MIAX Emerald, to avoid potential confusion by market participants. B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will impose any burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. The Exchange does not believe the proposal will impose any burden on intra-market competition because the proposed rule change is not a competitive filing but rather is designed to effectuate the Exchange’s rebranding of references to ‘‘MIAX PEARL’’ to now be ‘‘MIAX Pearl,’’ as part of a corporate rebranding and marketing strategy. The proposed changes to the Exchange’s Rulebook and Fee Schedule will help provide clarity and uniformity to avoid potential confusion on the part of market participants because the rebrand of ‘‘MIAX Pearl’’ is part of a broader rebranding and marketing effort by the Exchange and its affiliates, MIAX Pearl and MIAX Emerald. In addition, the Exchange does not believe the proposal will impose any burden on inter-market competition as the proposal does not address any competitive issues and is intended to protect investors by providing further transparency regarding the Exchange’s Rulebook and Fee Schedule. C. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others Written comments were neither solicited nor received. III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action The foregoing rule change has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 14 and Rule 19b–4(f)(3) 15 thereunder, in that the proposed rule change is concerned solely with the 14 15 15 17 E:\FR\FM\07MYN1.SGM U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A).

[[Page 24679]]

A. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Purpose of, and 
Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

1. Purpose
    The Exchange proposes to amend the Exchange's Rulebook \5\ and Fee 
Schedule \6\ as part of a non-substantive marketing effort to rebrand 
the Exchange's affiliate, MIAX Pearl. Pursuant to this proposal, the 
Exchange proposes to rebrand references to its affiliate's name, from 
the fully-capitalized words ``MIAX PEARL'' to now be ``MIAX Pearl,'' 
throughout the Exchange's Rulebook and the Fee Schedule.\7\ The 
Exchange does not propose to amend references to the legal entity's 
name, ``MIAX PEARL, LLC,'' and the rebranded term ``MIAX Pearl'' will 
represent the same entity as the legal name, ``MIAX PEARL.''
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See MIAX Rulebook, as of Apr. 13, 2021, available at: 
https://www.miaxoptions.com/sites/default/files/page-files/MIAX_Options_Exchange_Rules_04132021.pdf.
    \6\ See MIAX Fee Schedule, as of Apr. 12, 2021, available at: 
https://www.miaxoptions.com/sites/default/files/fee_schedule-files/MIAX_Options_Fee_Schedule_04122021.pdf.
    \7\ All references to MIAX Pearl's legal name will remain ``MIAX 
PEARL, LLC.'' This includes the reference to ``MIAX PEARL, LLC'' in 
Exchange Rule 100 for the definition of ``MIAX PEARL.'' For 
marketing purposes throughout the Rulebook and Fee Schedule, MIAX 
Pearl will otherwise be referred to as ``MIAX Pearl.''
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Specifically, with the proposed rebranding, references in the 
Exchange's Rulebook and Fee Schedule to ``MIAX PEARL'' will be 
rebranded to ``MIAX Pearl.''
    The rebranding of references to ``MIAX PEARL'' to now be to ``MIAX 
Pearl'' consists of non-substantive changes due to a recent rebranding 
effort conducted by the Exchange, as well as its affiliates, MIAX Pearl 
and MIAX Emerald, LLC (``MIAX Emerald''). The Exchange proposes to 
implement the rebranding changes for marketing purposes. With the 
rebranding changes, the term ``MIAX Pearl'' will be consistent with how 
its affiliate, ``MIAX Emerald,'' is named. The Exchange notes that no 
changes to the ownership or structure of MIAX Pearl have taken place 
and that the term ``MIAX Pearl'' will represent the same entity as the 
legal entity's name, ``MIAX PEARL.'' In lieu of providing a copy of the 
marked changes, the Exchange represents that it will make the necessary 
non-substantive revisions to the Exchange's Rulebook and the Fee 
Schedule and post updated versions of each on the Exchange's website 
pursuant to Rule 19b-4(m)(2).\8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4(m)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Additionally, the Exchange's affiliate, MIAX Emerald, intends to 
file a similar proposal to rebrand its Rulebook and Fee Schedule to 
amend references to ``MIAX PEARL'' to now be ``MIAX Pearl,'' which will 
reflect the same rebranding changes described herein.
    The Exchange notes that this filing is based on a similar proposal 
recently filed by MIAX Pearl to amend MIAX Pearl's Rulebook and Fee 
Schedules to reflect these same rebranding efforts.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 91537 (March 30, 
2021), 86 FR 20216 (April 16, 2021) (Notice of Filing and Immediate 
Effectiveness of File No. SR-PEARL-2021-08).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Statutory Basis
    The Exchange believes that its proposed rule change is consistent 
with Section 6(b) of the Act \10\ in general, and furthers the 
objectives of Section 6(b)(5) of the Act \11\ in particular, in that it 
is designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, 
promotes just and equitable principles of trade, fosters cooperation 
and coordination with persons engaged in facilitating transactions in 
securities, removes impediments to and perfects the mechanisms of a 
free and open market and a national market system and, in general, 
protects investors and the public interest because the proposal will 
eliminate potential confusion on the part of market participants using 
the products and services of the Exchange in light of the corporate 
rebranding that the Exchange and its affiliates, MIAX Pearl and MIAX 
Emerald, have undergone.

    \11\ 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Exchange also believes that the proposed rule change is 
consistent with Section 6(b)(1) of the Act \12\ in that it aims to 
continue to ensure that the Exchange has the capacity to carry out the 
purposes of the Act and to enforce compliance by its Members \13\ with 
the provisions of the Act as well as the rules and regulations 
thereunder. The Exchange proposes to amend the Rulebook and the Fee 
Schedule to rebrand references to ``MIAX PEARL'' to now be ``MIAX 
Pearl.'' The proposed rebrand consists of non-substantive changes to 
the Rulebook and the Fee Schedule of the Exchange so that the term 
``MIAX Pearl,'' is consistent with its affiliate's name, ``MIAX 
Emerald,'' as part of a broader marketing effort by the Exchange and 
its affiliates, MIAX Pearl and MIAX Emerald. Therefore, the Exchange 
believes that the rebrand will protect investors and the public 
interest by eliminating confusion that may exist because of differences 
in the other naming conventions of MIAX Pearl. No changes to the 
ownership or structure of MIAX Pearl have taken place. The Exchange 
notes that the term ``MIAX Pearl'' will represent the same entity as 
``MIAX PEARL.'' The Exchange notes that its affiliate, MIAX Emerald, 
will file a similar proposal to amend its Rulebook and Fee Schedule to 
rebrand references to ``MIAX PEARL'' to now be to ``MIAX Pearl,'' to 
provide uniformity among the Exchange, MIAX Pearl and MIAX Emerald, to 
avoid potential confusion by market participants.

    \13\ The term ``Member'' means an individual or organization 
approved to exercise the trading rights associated with a Trading 
Permit. Members are deemed ``members'' under the Exchange Act. See 
Exchange Rule 100.

B. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement on Burden on Competition

    The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will 
impose any burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate 
in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. The Exchange does not 
believe the proposal will impose any burden on intra-market competition 
because the proposed rule change is not a competitive filing but rather 
is designed to effectuate the Exchange's rebranding of references to 
``MIAX PEARL'' to now be ``MIAX Pearl,'' as part of a corporate 
rebranding and marketing strategy. The proposed changes to the 
Exchange's Rulebook and Fee Schedule will help provide clarity and 
uniformity to avoid potential confusion on the part of market 
participants because the rebrand of ``MIAX Pearl'' is part of a broader 
rebranding and marketing effort by the Exchange and its affiliates, 
MIAX Pearl and MIAX Emerald. In addition, the Exchange does not believe 
the proposal will impose any burden on inter-market competition as the 
proposal does not address any competitive issues and is intended to 
protect investors by providing further transparency regarding the 
Exchange's Rulebook and Fee Schedule.

Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others
