The text of the proposed rule change is available on the Exchange’s website at https://listingcenter.nasdaq.com/ rulebook/nasdaq/rules, at the principal office of the Exchange, and at the Commission’s Public Reference Room. 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.

Pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’),1 and Rule 19b-4 thereunder,2 notice is hereby given that on March 8, 2022, The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC 1 2 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). 17 CFR 240.19b–4. VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:07 Mar 22, 2022 Jkt 256001 The Exchange proposes to harmonize its existing processes for the review of decisions on appeal under Options 3, Section 20 with those of its affiliate Nasdaq Phlx LLC (‘‘Phlx’’). The Exchange also proposes several nonsubstantive, conforming changes in Options 3, Section 1. Appeal Today, Options 3, Section 20(k) governs the appeal process for determinations by Exchange staff made under this Rule, including obvious error determinations. Specifically, a party to a transaction affected by a decision made under this section may appeal that decision to the Exchange Review Council. An appeal must be made in writing, and must be received by the Exchange within thirty (30) minutes after the person making the appeal is PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 given the notification of the determination being appealed. The Exchange proposes generally to maintain its current appeal process with certain additions to harmonize its process with that of its affiliate, Phlx. First, while Phlx similarly requires the parties to submit a request for review within thirty (30) minutes of being notified of the determination being appealed, Phlx also provides parties with additional time to submit their request if the notification occurs later in the trading day. In particular, if the notification is made after 3:30 p.m. Eastern Time, either party has until 9:30 a.m. Eastern Time on the next trading day to submit a request for review.3 Similar to Phlx, the Exchange believes that this flexibility will be helpful for Participants in submitting their appeal requests in a timely manner, particularly where notification of the Official’s decision was received later in the trading day, and therefore proposes to adopt this provision in Options 3, Section 20(k). Second, the Exchange proposes to add a provision for when the Exchange Review Council panel must render a decision on requests for appeal to harmonize to Phlx’s process. Specifically, the Exchange proposes in Options 3, Section 20(k) that the Exchange Review Council panel shall review the facts and render a decision on the day of the transaction, or the next trade day in the case where a request is properly made after 3:30 p.m. on the day of the transaction or where the request is properly made the next trade day.4 Options 3, Section 1 The Exchange proposes nonsubstantive, conforming amendments to Options 3, Section 1 (Days and Hours of Business). The Exchange first proposes to amend the title from ‘‘Days and Hours of Business’’ to ‘‘Hours of Business.’’ The Exchange recently filed to establish General 3, Section 1030, which governs the days the Exchange will be open for business.5 At this time, the Exchange also proposes to amend Options 3, Section 1(c) which provides, ‘‘NOM shall not be open for business on any See Phlx Options 3, Section 20(l). See Phlx Options 3, Section 20(l) for analogous language. 5 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 93675 (November 29, 2021), 86 FR 68714 (December 3, 2021) (SR–NASDAQ–2021–69) (Notice of Filing and Immediate Effectiveness of Proposed Rule Change To Include Juneteenth National Independence Day as a Holiday). Rule 1030 of General 3 memorialized all current Exchange holidays and added a provision to permit the Exchange the authority to halt or suspend trading or close Exchange facilities for certain unanticipated closures. 3 4 E:\FR\FM\23MRN1.SGM 23MRN1

whether the Post Office Box customers had sufficient access to private 
mailbox service providers. Id. The Postal Service further states that 
at the time of its requests, ``it was conducting further evaluations of 
all Post Office Box locations and might in the future seek the transfer 
of additional locations, if warranted, as it develops its understanding 
of the mailbox service market.'' Id. at 1-2 (footnote omitted). It 
further states that based on Commission approved criteria, it expanded 
the competitive service to one additional location in 2013, to 1,625

competitive Post Office Box fee group. Id. The Postal Service requests 
the Commission to update the criteria applied to competitor locations 
to build upon the existing five-mile criterion and extend it by three 
miles to a range of eight miles. Id. The Request claims recent market 
research ``shows customers are willing to travel longer distances for 
P.O. Box service than the current five-mile criterion recognizes.'' Id. 
It notes that the request for 297 locations represent a very small 
proportion of the 32,788 locations offering Post Office Box service.
