Introduction The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) is considering approval of an application (the application) from General Electric Company (GE), submitted on January 19, 2007, for consent to direct transfer of Special Nuclear Material License-960 (SNM–960), currently held by GE to GEHitachi Nuclear Energy Americas, LLC. The application was supplemented by letters dated January 25, 2007, February 23, 2007, and March 2, 2007. The Commission is also considering amending the license for administrative purposes to reflect the proposed transfer. Renewed License No. SNM– 960 was issued on September 14, 2000, to GE under 10 CFR Part 70, and authorizes GE to possess and use specified licensed material at the Vallecitos Nuclear Center located near Pleasanton, California. According to the application for approval, and supplements filed by GE, GE-Hitachi Nuclear Energy Americas, LLC, a newly formed entity, would acquire ownership of the facilities following approval of the proposed license transfer, and would be responsible for the operation and maintenance of the facilities. This new entity will be wholly owned by GEHitachi Nuclear Energy Holdings, LLC, created as a parent company. A U.S. subsidiary or subsidiaries of Hitachi Ltd., a Japanese company, will hold a 40% ownership interest. GE, through various subsidiaries, will hold a 60% ownership interest. The proposed amendment would replace references to GE in the license with references to GE-Hitachi Nuclear Energy Americas, LLC., to reflect the proposed transfer. Pursuant to 10 CFR 70.36, no right to possess or utilize special nuclear material granted by any license, issued pursuant to the regulations in Part 70 shall be transferred, assigned or in any manner disposed of, either voluntarily or involuntarily, directly or indirectly, through transfer of control of any license, to any person, unless the Commission shall, after securing full information, find that the transfer is in accordance with the provisions of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, and shall give its consent in writing. The Commission will approve an application for the transfer of a license if the Commission determines that the proposed transferee is qualified to hold the license, and that the transfer is otherwise consistent with applicable provisions of law, regulations, and orders issued by the Commission pursuant thereto. An Environmental PO 00000 Frm 00077 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 15171 Assessment (EA) will not be performed because this action is categorically excluded from the requirement to perform an EA pursuant to 10 CFR 51.22(c)(21). Before issuance of the proposed conforming license amendment, the Commission will have made findings required by the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, and the Commission’s regulations. II. Opportunity To Request a Hearing In accordance with the general requirements in Subparts C and M of 10 CFR Part 2, any person whose interest may be affected by this proceeding, and who desires to participate as a party, must file a written request for a hearing and a specification of the contentions which the person seeks to have litigated in the hearing. In accordance with 10 CFR 2.309(b)(1), to be timely, hearing requests and petitions to intervene must be filed no later than April 19, 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

    The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) is considering 
approval of an application (the application) from General Electric 
Company (GE), submitted on January 19, 2007, for consent to direct 
transfer of Special Nuclear Material License-960 (SNM-960), currently 
held by GE to GE-Hitachi Nuclear Energy Americas, LLC. The application 
was supplemented by letters dated January 25, 2007, February 23, 2007, 
and March 2, 2007. The Commission is also considering amending the 
license for administrative purposes to reflect the proposed transfer. 
Renewed License No. SNM-960 was issued on September 14, 2000, to GE 
under 10 CFR Part 70, and authorizes GE to possess and use specified 
licensed material at the Vallecitos Nuclear Center located near 
Pleasanton, California.
    According to the application for approval, and supplements filed by 
GE, GE-Hitachi Nuclear Energy Americas, LLC, a newly formed entity, 
would acquire ownership of the facilities following approval of the 
proposed license transfer, and would be responsible for the operation 
and maintenance of the facilities. This new entity will be wholly owned 
by GE-Hitachi Nuclear Energy Holdings, LLC, created as a parent 
company. A U.S. subsidiary or subsidiaries of Hitachi Ltd., a Japanese 
company, will hold a 40% ownership interest. GE, through various 
subsidiaries, will hold a 60% ownership interest.
    The proposed amendment would replace references to GE in the 
license with references to GE-Hitachi Nuclear Energy Americas, LLC., to 
reflect the proposed transfer.
    Pursuant to 10 CFR 70.36, no right to possess or utilize special 
nuclear material granted by any license, issued pursuant to the 
regulations in Part 70 shall be transferred, assigned or in any manner 
disposed of, either voluntarily or involuntarily, directly or 
indirectly, through transfer of control of any license, to any person, 
unless the Commission shall, after securing full information, find that 
the transfer is in accordance with the provisions of the Atomic Energy 
Act of 1954, as amended, and shall give its consent in writing. The 
Commission will approve an application for the transfer of a license if 
the Commission determines that the proposed transferee is qualified to 
hold the license, and that the transfer is otherwise consistent with 
applicable provisions of law, regulations, and orders issued by the 
Commission pursuant thereto. An Environmental Assessment (EA) will not 
be performed because this action is categorically excluded from the 
requirement to perform an EA pursuant to 10 CFR 51.22(c)(21).
    Before issuance of the proposed conforming license amendment, the 
Commission will have made findings required by the Atomic Energy Act of 
1954, as amended, and the Commission's regulations.
