Introduction The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has received, by letter dated September 29, 2005, a license renewal application from Westinghouse Electric Company (WEC), requesting renewal of License No. SNM–1107 at its Columbia Fuel Fabrication Facility site located in Columbia, South Carolina. License No. SNM–1107 authorizes the licensee to possess and use special nuclear material for the manufacture of fuel for nuclear power plants. The Columbia Fuel Fabrication Facility has been licensed by the Atomic Energy Commission and its successor, the NRC, to manufacture low-enriched uranium fuel for nuclear power plants. The license was renewed in 1995 for a period of 10 years, expiring on November 30, 2005. By applications dated September 29 and October 5, 2005, WEC requested renewal of their license for a period of 20 years. The NRC will review the license renewal application for compliance with applicable sections of regulations in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR)—Energy, Chapter I—Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The license renewal application included an Environmental Report (Enclosure 4 to the license renewal application), which the NRC will review and use to prepare an environmental assessment to assist in the NRC’s determination on the license renewal application, as required by 10 CFR part 51, Environmental Protection Regulations for Domestic Licensing and Related Regulatory Functions, and the National Environmental Policy Act. An NRC administrative review, documented in a letter to WEC dated November 2, 2005 (ML052980594), found the application acceptable to begin a technical review. Because WEC filed the application for renewal not less than 30 days before the expiration of the date stated in the existing license, the existing license will not expire until the Commission makes a final determination on the renewal application, in accordance with the timely renewal provision of 10 CFR 70.38(a)(1). If the NRC approves the renewal application, the approval will be documented in NRC License No. SNM–1107. However, before approving E:\FR\FM\29DEN1.SGM 29DEN1
