The E-Filing system also distributes an email notice that provides access to the document to the NRC’s Office of the General Counsel and any others who have advised the Office of the Secretary that they wish to participate in the proceeding, so that the filer need not serve the document on those participants separately. Therefore, applicants and other participants (or their counsel or representative) must apply for and receive a digital ID certificate before adjudicatory documents are filed so that they can obtain access to the documents via the E-Filing system. A person filing electronically using the NRC’s adjudicatory E-Filing system may seek assistance by contacting the NRC’s Electronic Filing Help Desk through the ‘‘Contact Us’’ link located on the NRC’s public website at https:// www.nrc.gov/site-help/esubmittals.html, by email to MSHD.Resource@nrc.gov, or by a tollfree call at 1–866–672–7640. The NRC Electronic Filing Help Desk is available between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m., Eastern Time, Monday through Friday, excluding government holidays. Participants who believe that they have a good cause for not submitting documents electronically must file an exemption request, in accordance with 10 CFR 2.302(g), with their initial paper filing stating why there is good cause for not filing electronically and requesting authorization to continue to submit documents in paper format. Such filings must be submitted by: (1) First class mail addressed to the Office of the Secretary of the Commission, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555–0001, Attention: Rulemaking and Adjudications Staff; or (2) courier, express mail, or expedited delivery service to the Office of the Secretary, 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland, 20852, Attention: Rulemaking and Adjudications Staff. Participants filing adjudicatory documents in this manner are responsible for serving the document on all other participants. Filing is considered complete by first-class mail as of the time of deposit in the mail, or by courier, express mail, or expedited delivery service upon depositing the document with the provider of the service. A presiding officer, having granted an exemption request from using E-Filing, may require a participant or party to use E-Filing if the presiding officer subsequently determines that the reason for granting the exemption from use of E-Filing no longer exists. Documents submitted in adjudicatory proceedings will appear in the NRC’s VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:06 Jun 28, 2021 Jkt 253001 electronic hearing docket which is available to the public at https:// adams.nrc.gov/ehd, unless excluded pursuant to an order of the Commission or the presiding officer. If you do not have an NRC-issued digital ID certificate as described above, click ‘‘cancel’’ when the link requests certificates and you will be automatically directed to the NRC’s electronic hearing docket where you will be able to access any publicly available documents in a particular hearing docket. Participants are requested not to include personal privacy information, such as social security numbers, home addresses, or personal phone numbers in their filings, unless an NRC regulation or other law requires submission of such information. For example, in some instances, individuals provide home addresses in order to demonstrate proximity to a facility or site. With respect to copyrighted works, except for limited excerpts that serve the purpose of the adjudicatory filings and would constitute a Fair Use application, participants are requested not to include copyrighted materials in their submission. The Commission will issue a notice or order granting or denying a hearing request or intervention petition, designating the issues for any hearing that will be held, and designating the Presiding Officer. A notice granting a hearing will be published in the Federal Register and served on the parties to the hearing.

By way of background, General 9, Section 18 and FINRA Rule 5250 explicitly prohibit any payment by issuers or issuers’ affiliates and promoters, directly or indirectly, to a member or person associated with a member for publishing a quotation, acting as a market maker, or submitting an application in connection therewith. The respective rules are intended, among other things, to prohibit members from receiving compensation or other payments from an issuer for quoting or making a market in the issuer’s securities and to assure that members act in an independent capacity when publishing a quotation or making a market in an issuer’s securities. Today, there are several differences between current General 9, Section 18 and FINRA Rule 5250. The Exchange’s proposal to replace General 9, Section 18 with an incorporation by reference to FINRA Rule 5250 will align Nasdaq’s rule to FINRA’s rule. The Exchange explains the differences below. First, by incorporating FINRA Rule 5250, the Exchange would incorporate FINRA’s rule which states that members are not precluded from accepting ‘‘any payment expressly provided for under the rules of a national securities exchange that are effective after being filed with, or filed with and approved by, the SEC pursuant to the requirements of the Exchange Act.’’ General 9, Section 18 currently does not include this exception. FINRA previously amended Rule 5250 4 to account for cases where a market maker payment is provided for under the rules of an exchange that are effective after being filed with, or filed with and approved by, the Commission pursuant to the requirements of the Act. FINRA noted in its 2013 Rule Change that comity should be afforded to such exchange rulemaking and the payment should not be prohibited under Rule 5250.5 The 2013 Rule Change cited to Nasdaq’s Market Quality Program as an example of such exchange rulemaking.6 Incorporating this exception from 4 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 69398 (April 18, 2013), 78 FR 24261 (April 24, 2013) (SR– FINRA–2013–020) (Notice of Filing and Immediate Effectiveness of a Proposed Rule Change Relating to FINRA Rule 5250 (Payments for Market Making) (‘‘2013 Rule Change’’). 5 Id. 6 See 2013 Rule Change (citing to Securities Exchange Act Release No. 69195).
