Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 11 / Thursday, January 18, 2007 / Notices Environmental Impacts of the Alternatives to the Proposed Action Due to the largely administrative nature of the proposed action, its environmental impacts are small. Therefore, the only alternative the staff considered is the no-action alternative, under which the staff would leave things as they are by simply denying the amendment request. This no-action alternative is not feasible because it conflicts with 10 CFR 30.36(d), requiring that decommissioning of byproduct material facilities be completed and approved by the NRC after licensed activities cease. The NRC’s analysis of the Licensee’s final status survey data confirmed that the Facility meets the requirements of 10 CFR 20.1402 for unrestricted release and for license termination. Additionally, denying the amendment request would result in no change in current environmental impacts. The environmental impacts of the proposed action and the no-action alternative are therefore similar, and the no-action alternative is accordingly not further considered. pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES Conclusion The NRC staff has concluded that the proposed action is consistent with the NRC’s unrestricted release criteria specified in 10 CFR 20.1402. Because the proposed action will not significantly impact the quality of the human environment, the NRC staff concludes that the proposed action is the preferred alternative. Agencies and Persons Consulted NRC provided a draft of this Environmental Assessment to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Department of Environmental Protection for review on December 18, 2006. On December 21, 2006, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania responded by e-mail. The Commonwealth agreed with the conclusions of the EA, and otherwise had no comments. The NRC staff has determined that the proposed action is of a procedural nature, and will not affect listed species or critical habitat. Therefore, no further consultation is required under Section 7 of the Endangered Species Act. The NRC staff has also determined that the proposed action is not the type of activity that has the potential to cause effects on historic properties. Therefore, no further consultation is required under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. III. Finding of No Significant Impact The NRC staff has prepared this EA in support of the proposed action. On the VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:52 Jan 17, 2007 Jkt 211001 2315 basis of this EA, the NRC finds that there are no significant environmental impacts from the proposed action, and that preparation of an environmental impact statement is not warranted. Accordingly, the NRC has determined that a Finding of No Significant Impact is appropriate. Dated: Region I, 475 Allendale Road, King of Prussia, Pennsylvania this 9th day of January 2007.

The TPSC is seeking comments from the public on to the full range of issues that may affect implementation of this Decision. DATES: Comments are due by March 15, 2007.

Further information on the WTO, including the declarations, decisions referred to in this notice, can be obtained via the Internet at the WTO Web site, http://www.wto.org, and/or the USTR Web site, http://www.ustr.gov. The 2005 President’s Annual Report on the Trade Agreements Program, which is available on the USTR Web site, contains extensive information on the WTO, the Sixth WTO Ministerial Conference in Hong Kong, China, and the status of work in the WTO. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Duty-Free Quota-Free Market Access: The TPSC calls attention to the decision adopted at the Sixth Ministerial Conference of the WTO in December 2005 on duty-free, quota-free (DFQF) market access for LDCs. The DFQF decision is contained in Annex F of the Ministerial Declaration, which can be found at http://www.wto.org with the document symbol ‘‘WT/MIN(05)/DEC’’. Ministers agreed that WTO Members would implement the DFQF initiative coincident with the implementation of the results of the negotiations under the Doha Development Agenda (DDA). On a voluntary basis, WTO Members may also implement sooner. Implementation of the DFQF by relevant WTO Members is subject to review by Members through the WTO Committee on Trade and Development (CTD). On May 15, 2006, the United States submitted a paper to the CTD, ‘‘Duty-Free, Quota-Free Market Access for the Least-Developed Countries: Communication from the United States’’. This paper can be found at http://www.wto.org with the document symbol ‘‘WT/COMTD/W/149’’. The paper summarizes the U.S. legal and consultative process for implementing the DFQF decision, and outlines certain factors and related obligations affecting implementation.
