ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: Additional Public Notification VerDate Aug<31>2005 NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION SUMMARY: The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is proposing to amend its regulations revising the NAC International, Inc., NAC-Multi-Purpose Canister (MPC) system listing within the ‘‘List of Approved Spent Fuel Storage Casks’’ to include Amendment No. 5 to Certificate of Compliance (CoC) Number 1025. Amendment No. 5 would modify the CoC by revising the Technical Specifications (TS) to incorporate changes to the reporting and monitoring requirements to allow for visual inspection of the air inlet and outlet vents instead of thermal monitoring, revising the TS to incorporate guidance from NRC Interim Staff Guidance-22 and replace all references to backfilling the cask with air to backfilling with inert gas, revising the CoC description to remove the requirement for tamperindicating devices on the Vertical Concrete Casks, and including several editorial changes to improve the clarity of the documents associated with the NAC-MPC system, under the general provisions that govern licensing requirements for the independent storage of spent nuclear fuel, high level radioactive waste, and reactor-related greater than Class C waste.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: For additional information see the direct final rule published in the Rules and Regulations section of this Federal Register. ycherry on PROD1PC64 with PROPOSALS Procedural Background This rule is limited to the changes contained in Amendment 5 to CoC No. 1025 and does not include other aspects of the NAC–MPC design. Because NRC considers this action noncontroversial and routine, the NRC is publishing this proposed rule concurrently as a direct final rule. Adequate protection of public health and safety continues to be ensured. The direct final rule will become effective on July 24, 2007. However, if the NRC receives significant adverse comments by June 11, 2007, then the NRC will publish a document that withdraws the direct final rule and will subsequently address the comments received in a final rule. The NRC will not initiate a second comment period on this action. A significant adverse comment is a comment where the commenter explains why the rule would be inappropriate, including challenges to the rule’s underlying premise or approach, or would be ineffective or unacceptable without a change. A comment is adverse and significant if: (1) The comment opposes the rule and provides a reason sufficient to require a substantive response in a notice-andcomment process. For example, a substantive response is required when— (a) The comment causes the NRC staff to reevaluate (or reconsider) its position or conduct additional analysis; (b) The comment raises an issue serious enough to warrant a substantive response to clarify or complete the record; or (c) The comment raises a relevant issue that was not previously addressed or considered by the NRC staff. (2) The comment proposes a change or an addition to the rule, and it is apparent that the rule would be ineffective or unacceptable without incorporation of the change or addition.

List of Approved Spent Fuel Storage Casks: NAC-MPC Revision 5

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Proposed rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is proposing to amend 
its regulations revising the NAC International, Inc., NAC-Multi-Purpose 
Canister (MPC) system listing within the ``List of Approved Spent Fuel 
Storage Casks'' to include Amendment No. 5 to Certificate of Compliance 
(CoC) Number 1025. Amendment No. 5 would modify the CoC by revising the 
Technical Specifications (TS) to incorporate changes to the reporting 
and monitoring requirements to allow for visual inspection of the air 
inlet and outlet vents instead of thermal monitoring, revising the TS 
to incorporate guidance from NRC Interim Staff Guidance-22 and replace 
all references to backfilling the cask with air to backfilling with 
inert gas, revising the CoC description to remove the requirement for 
tamper-indicating devices on the Vertical Concrete Casks, and including 
several editorial changes to improve the clarity of the documents 
associated with the NAC-MPC system, under the general provisions that 
govern licensing requirements for the independent storage of spent 
nuclear fuel, high level radioactive waste, and reactor-related greater 
than Class C waste.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: For additional information see the direct

Federal Register.

Procedural Background

    This rule is limited to the changes contained in Amendment 5 to CoC 
No. 1025 and does not include other aspects of the NAC-MPC design. 
Because NRC considers this action noncontroversial and routine, the NRC 
is publishing this proposed rule concurrently as a direct final rule. 
Adequate protection of public health and safety continues to be 
ensured. The direct final rule will become effective on July 24, 2007. 
However, if the NRC receives significant adverse comments by June 11, 
2007, then the NRC will publish a document that withdraws the direct 
final rule and will subsequently address the comments received in a 
final rule. The NRC will not initiate a second comment period on this 
action.
    A significant adverse comment is a comment where the commenter 
explains why the rule would be inappropriate, including challenges to 
the rule's underlying premise or approach, or would be ineffective or 
unacceptable without a change. A comment is adverse and significant if:
    (1) The comment opposes the rule and provides a reason sufficient 
to require a substantive response in a notice-and-comment process. For 
example, a substantive response is required when--
    (a) The comment causes the NRC staff to reevaluate (or reconsider) 
its position or conduct additional analysis;
    (b) The comment raises an issue serious enough to warrant a 
substantive response to clarify or complete the record; or
    (c) The comment raises a relevant issue that was not previously 
addressed or considered by the NRC staff.
    (2) The comment proposes a change or an addition to the rule, and 
it is apparent that the rule would be ineffective or unacceptable 
without incorporation of the change or addition.
    (3) The comment causes the NRC staff to make a change (other than 
editorial) to the rule, CoC, or TS.
