(‘‘Exchange’’ or ‘‘Cboe Options’’) filed with the 1 15 2 17 Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change as described in Items I, II, and III below, which Items have been prepared by the Exchange. The Exchange filed the proposal as a ‘‘noncontroversial’’ proposed rule change pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A)(iii) of the Act 3 and Rule 19b–4(f)(6) thereunder.4 The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons.

(the ‘‘Exchange’’ or ‘‘Cboe Options’’) proposes to amend its rules relating to trading halts during the Global Trading Hours session. The text of the proposed rule change is provided in Exhibit 5. The text of the proposed rule change is also available on the Exchange’s website (http://www.cboe.com/ AboutCBOE/ CBOELegalRegulatoryHome.aspx), at the Exchange’s Office of the Secretary, and at the Commission’s Public Reference Room.

Purpose The purpose of the proposed rule change is to automate the Exchange’s process for the halting and resumption of trading in certain circumstances during the Exchange’s Global Trading Hours (‘‘GTH’’) session.

Rule 5.20(a) provides that any two Floor Officials, in consultation with a designated senior executive officer of the Exchange, may halt trading in any security in the interests of a fair and orderly market and to protect investors. Rule 5.20(a) also sets forth various factors that may be considered in making the forgoing determination, including whether there has been an activation of price limits on futures exchanges or the halt of trading in related futures with respect to index options.5 Additionally, Rule 5.20(b) provides that trading in a security that has been the subject of a halt under subparagraph (a) may be resumed as described in Rule 5.31(g) 6 upon a determination by two Floor Officials, in consultation with a designated senior executive officer of the Exchange, that the interests of a fair and orderly market are best served by a resumption of trading. Among the factors to be considered in making this determination are whether the conditions which led to the halt are no longer present. By way of further background, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (‘‘CME’’) recently amended its rules to (1) adopt Dynamic Special Price Fluctuation Limits and trading halt rules for certain CME equity index futures 7 during CME’s Overnight Trading Hours session (‘‘OTH’’ 8) and (2) modify its hard OTH Price Limits.9 Specifically, CME amended its rules to provide that if a contract market moves beyond the lower or above the upper dynamic price fluctuation limit during OTH (currently set at 3.5%), CME will trigger a Dynamic Circuit Breaker and halt trading for two 5 See Cboe Options Rule 5.20(a)(6). Options Rule 5.31(g) governs the opening auction process that follows a trading halt. Particularly, it provides that the Exchange will open series using the same opening auction process described in Rule 5.31 following a trading halt in the class declared by the Exchange pursuant to Rule 5.20, except: (1) The Queuing Period will begin immediately when the Exchange halts trading in the class; (2) if a User has orders or quotes resting on the Book at the time of a trading halt, the System queues those orders and quotes in the Queuing Book for participation in the opening rotation following the trading halt, unless the User entered instructions to cancel its resting orders and quotes; and (3) the System will initiate the opening rotation for a class upon the Exchange’s determination to resume trading pursuant to Rule 5.20.

    Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the Securities and Exchange 
Commission (``Commission'') has submitted to the Office of Management 
and Budget (``OMB'') a request for extension of the previously approved 
collection of information summarized below.
    The Commission is required under Section 342 of the Dodd-Frank Wall 
Street and Reform Act to develop standards and processes for ensuring 
the fair inclusion of women-owned and minority-owned businesses in all 
of the Commission's business activities. In addition, the Commission is 
required to develop standards for coordinating technical assistance to 
minority-owned and women-owned businesses. 12 U.S.C. 5452(b)(2)(B). To 
help implement these requirements, the Office of Minority and Women 
Inclusion (OMWI) developed and maintains an electronic Supplier 
Diversity Business Management System (SDBMS) to collect up-to-date 
business information and capabilities statements from diverse suppliers 
interested in doing business with the Commission. The information 
collected in SDBMS assists the Commission with its market research 
efforts, enables the Commission to assess the effectiveness of its 
technical assistance and outreach efforts and identify target areas for 
additional program efforts, and facilitates the Commission's compliance 
with its Congressionally-mandated reporting obligations on the 
Commission's contract awards.
    The Commission invited comments on SDBMS. Information is collected 
in SDBMS via web-based, e-filed, dynamic form-based technology. The 
company point of contact completes a profile consisting of basic 
contact data and information on the capabilities of the business. The 
profile includes a series of questions, some of which are based on the 
data that the individual enters. Drop-down lists are included where 
appropriate to increase ease of use.
    The information collection is voluntary. There are no costs 
associated with this collection. SDBMS allows suppliers to self-
register via a secure web portal that is accessible through a hyperlink 
on the Commission's public website.
    Estimated number of annual responses: 300.
    Estimated annual reporting burden: 150 hours (30 minutes per 
submission).
    Other than a recent decrease in the number of respondents, 
presumably due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the estimated number of 
respondents overall remains the same at 300 per year, based on the 
actual response rate prior to the pandemic. As such, the total burden 
estimate also remains the same at 150 hours.
    On May 11, 2021, the Commission published a notice in the Federal 
Register (86 FR 25931) of its intention to request an extension of this 
currently approved collection of information, and

allowed the public 60 days to submit comments. The Commission received 
no comments.

collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of 
the functions of the agency, including whether the information will 
have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of 
the burden imposed by the collection of information; (c) ways to 
enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; 
and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on
