The Exchange uses reports from OCC when assessing and collecting the ORF. The ORF is collected by OCC on behalf of BZX Options from the Clearing Member or non-Clearing Member that ultimately clears the transaction. With respect to linkage transactions, the Exchange reimburses its routing brokers providing Routing Services for options regulatory fees it incurs in connection with the Routing Services it provides. Pursuant to BZX Options Rule 24.1, solely for purposes of ORF billing, Members must provide BZX Options with a complete list of its OCC clearing numbers and keep such information up to date with BZX Options.
