Redacted; EA–07–082] In the Matter of Certain 10 CFR Part 50 Licensees Who Transport Spent Nuclear Fuel Under the Provisions of 10 CFR PART 71; Order Modifying Licenses (Effective Immediately) I. The licensees identified in Attachment 1 to this Order have been issued a specific license by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or Commission) authorizing the possession of spent nuclear fuel and a general license authorizing the transportation of spent nuclear fuel [in a transportation package approved by the Commission] in accordance with the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, and 10 CFR parts 50 and 71. Commission regulations for the shipment of spent nuclear fuel at 10 CFR 73.37(a) require these licensees to maintain a physical protection system that meets the requirements contained in 10 CFR 73.37(b), (c), (d), and (e). II. On September 11, 2001, terrorists simultaneously attacked targets in New PO 00000 Frm 00102 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 30043 York, NY, and Washington, DC, utilizing large commercial aircraft as weapons. In response to the attacks and intelligence information subsequently obtained, the Commission issued a number of Safeguards and Threat Advisories to its licensees in order to strengthen licensees’ capabilities and readiness to respond to a potential attack on a nuclear facility or regulated activity. The Commission has also communicated with other Federal, State and local government agencies and industry representatives to discuss and evaluate the current threat environment in order to assess the adequacy of security measures at licensed facilities. In addition, the Commission has been conducting a comprehensive review of its safeguards and security programs and requirements. As a result of its consideration of current safeguards and security plan requirements, as well as a review of information provided by the intelligence community, the Commission has determined that certain additional security measures are required to be implemented by licensees as prudent, interim measures, to address the current threat environment in a consistent manner. Therefore, the Commission is imposing requirements, as set forth in Attachment 2 of this Order, on all licensees identified in Attachment 1 of this Order.1 These additional security requirements, which supplement existing regulatory requirements, will provide the Commission with reasonable assurance that the common defense and security continue to be adequately protected in the current threat environment. These requirements will remain in effect until the Commission determines otherwise. The Commission recognizes that licensees may have already initiated many of the measures set forth in Attachment 2 to this Order in response to previously issued Safeguards and Threat Advisories or on their own. It is also recognized that some measures may not be possible or necessary for all shipments of spent nuclear fuel, or may need to be tailored to accommodate the licensees’ specific circumstances to achieve the intended objectives and avoid any unforeseen effect on the safe transport of spent nuclear fuel. Although the additional security measures implemented by licensees in response to the Safeguards and Threat Advisories have been adequate to provide reasonable assurance of adequate protection of common defense and security, in light of the current 1 Attachments 1 and 2 contain safeguards information and will not be released to the public.

NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION

[Docket Nos. Redacted; License Nos. Redacted; EA-07-082]


In the Matter of Certain 10 CFR Part 50 Licensees Who Transport 
Spent Nuclear Fuel Under the Provisions of 10 CFR PART 71; Order 
Modifying Licenses (Effective Immediately)

I.

    The licensees identified in Attachment 1 to this Order have been 
issued a specific license by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission 
(NRC or Commission) authorizing the possession of spent nuclear fuel 
and a general license authorizing the transportation of spent nuclear 
fuel [in a transportation package approved by the Commission] in 
accordance with the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, and 10 CFR 
parts 50 and 71. Commission regulations for the shipment of spent 
nuclear fuel at 10 CFR 73.37(a) require these licensees to maintain a 
physical protection system that meets the requirements contained in 10 
CFR 73.37(b), (c), (d), and (e).

II.

    On September 11, 2001, terrorists simultaneously attacked targets 
in New York, NY, and Washington, DC, utilizing large commercial 
aircraft as weapons. In response to the attacks and intelligence 
information subsequently obtained, the Commission issued a number of 
Safeguards and Threat Advisories to its licensees in order to 
strengthen licensees' capabilities and readiness to respond to a 
potential attack on a nuclear facility or regulated activity. The 
Commission has also communicated with other Federal, State and local 
government agencies and industry representatives to discuss and 
evaluate the current threat environment in order to assess the adequacy 
of security measures at licensed facilities. In addition, the 
Commission has been conducting a comprehensive review of its safeguards 
and security programs and requirements.
    As a result of its consideration of current safeguards and security 
plan requirements, as well as a review of information provided by the 
intelligence community, the Commission has determined that certain 
additional security measures are required to be implemented by 
licensees as prudent, interim measures, to address the current threat 
environment in a consistent manner. Therefore, the Commission is 
imposing requirements, as set forth in Attachment 2 of this Order, on 
all licensees identified in Attachment 1 of this Order.\1\ These 
additional security requirements, which supplement existing regulatory 
requirements, will provide the Commission with reasonable assurance 
that the common defense and security continue to be adequately 
protected in the current threat environment. These requirements will 
remain in effect until the Commission determines otherwise.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Attachments 1 and 2 contain safeguards information and will 
not be released to the public.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Commission recognizes that licensees may have already initiated 
many of the measures set forth in Attachment 2 to this Order in 
response to previously issued Safeguards and Threat Advisories or on 
their own. It is also recognized that some measures may not be possible 
or necessary for all shipments of spent nuclear fuel, or may need to be 
tailored to accommodate the licensees' specific circumstances to 
achieve the intended objectives and avoid any unforeseen effect on the 
safe transport of spent nuclear fuel.
    Although the additional security measures implemented by licensees 
in response to the Safeguards and Threat Advisories have been adequate 
to provide reasonable assurance of adequate protection of common 
defense and security, in light of the current

[[Page 30044]]

threat environment, the Commission concludes that the security measures 
must be embodied in an Order consistent with the established regulatory 
framework. In order to provide assurance that licensees are 
implementing prudent measures to achieve a consistent level of 
protection to address the current threat environment, all licenses 
identified in Attachment 1 to this Order shall be modified to include 
the requirements identified in Attachment 2 to this Order. In addition, 
pursuant to 10 CFR 2.202, and in light of the common defense and 
security matters identified above which warrant the issuance of this 
Order, the Commission finds that the public health, safety, and 
interest require that this Order be immediately effective.

III.

    Accordingly, pursuant to Sections 53, 104, 161b, 161i, 161o, 182 
and 186 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, and the 
Commission's regulations in 10 CFR 2.202 and 10 CFR Parts 50, 71, and 
73, it is hereby ordered, effective immediately, that all licenses 
identified in attachment 1 to this order are modified as follows:
    A. All licensees shall, notwithstanding the provisions of any 
Commission regulation or license to the contrary, comply with the 
requirements described in Attachment 2 to this Order except to the 
extent that a more stringent requirement is set forth in the licensee's 
security plan. The licensees shall immediately start implementation of 
the requirements in Attachment 2 to the Order and shall complete 
implementation by June 22, 2007, unless otherwise specified in 
Attachment 2, or before the first shipment after May 23, 2007, 
whichever is earlier.
    B.1. All licensees shall, within twenty (20) days of the date of 
this Order, unless otherwise specified in Attachment 2, notify the 
Commission, (1) if they are unable to comply with any of the 
requirements described in Attachment 2, (2) if compliance with any of 
the requirements is unnecessary in their specific circumstances, or (3) 
if implementation of any of the requirements would cause the licensee 
to be in violation of the provisions of any Commission regulation or 
the facility license. The notification shall provide the licensee's 
justification for seeking relief from or variation of any specific 
requirement.
    2. Any licensee that considers that implementation of any of the 
requirements described in Attachment 2 to this Order would adversely 
impact the safe transport of spent nuclear fuel must notify the 
Commission, within twenty (20) days of the date of this Order, of the 
adverse safety impact, the basis for its determination that the 
requirement has an adverse safety impact, and either a proposal for 
achieving the same objectives specified in the Attachment 2 requirement 
in question, or a schedule for modifying the activity to address the 
adverse safety condition. If neither approach is appropriate, the 
licensee must supplement its response to Condition B1 of this Order to 
identify the condition as a requirement with which it cannot comply, 
with attendant justifications as required in Condition B1.
    C. 1. All licensees shall, within twenty (20) days of the date of 
this Order, submit to the Commission a schedule for achieving 
compliance with each requirement described in Attachment 2.
    1. All licensees shall report to the Commission when they have 
achieved or plan to achieve full compliance with the requirements 
described in Attachment 2.
    D. Notwithstanding any provisions of the Commission's regulations 
to the contrary, all measures implemented or actions taken in response 
to this Order shall be maintained until the Commission determines 
otherwise.
    Licensee responses to Conditions B1, B2, C1, and C2 above, shall be 
submitted to the NRC to the attention of the Director, Office of 
Nuclear Reactor Regulation, under 10 CFR 50.4. In addition, licensee 
submittals that contain Safeguards Information shall be properly marked 
and handled in accordance with 10 CFR 73.21.
    The Director, Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation, may, in 
writing, relax or rescind any of the above conditions upon 
demonstration by the licensee of good cause.

IV.

    In accordance with 10 CFR 2.202, the licensee must, and any other 
person adversely affected by this Order may, submit an answer to this 
Order, and may request a hearing on this Order, within twenty (20) days 
of the date of this Order. Where good cause is shown, consideration 
will be given to extending the time to request a hearing. A request for 
extension of time in which to submit an answer or request a hearing 
must be made in writing to the Director, Office of Nuclear Reactor 
Regulation, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555-
0001, and include a statement of good cause for the extension. The 
answer may consent to this Order. Unless the answer consents to this 
Order, the answer shall, in writing and under oath or affirmation, 
specifically set forth the matters of fact and law on which the 
licensee or other person adversely affected relies and the reasons as 
to why the Order should not have been issued. Any answer or request for 
a hearing shall be submitted to the Secretary, Office of the Secretary 
of the Commission, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, ATTN: 
Rulemakings and Adjudications Staff, Washington, DC 20555-0001. Copies 
also shall be sent to the Director, Office of Nuclear Reactor 
Regulation, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555-
0001; to the Assistant General Counsel for Materials Litigation and 
Enforcement at the same address; to the Regional Administrator for NRC 
Region I, II, III, or IV, as appropriate for the specific facility; and 
to the licensee if the answer or hearing request is by a person other 
than the licensee. Because of potential delays in delivery of mail to 
United States Government offices, it is requested that answers and 
requests for hearing be transmitted to the Secretary of the Commission 
either by means of facsimile transmission to 301-415-1101 or by e-mail 
to hearingdocket@nrc.gov, and also to the Office of the General Counsel 
either by means of facsimile transmission to 301-415-3725 or by e-mail 
to OGCMailCenter@nrc.gov. If a person other than the licensee requests 
a hearing, that person shall set forth with particularity the manner in 
which his interest is adversely affected by this Order and shall 
address the criteria set forth in 10 CFR 2.714(d).
    If a hearing is requested by the licensee or a person whose 
interest is adversely affected, the Commission will issue an Order 
designating the time and place of any hearing. If a hearing is held, 
the issue to be considered at such hearing shall be whether this Order 
should be sustained.
    Pursuant to 10 CFR 2.202(c)(2)(i), the licensee may, in addition to 
demanding a hearing, at the time the answer is filed or sooner, move 
the presiding officer to set aside the immediate effectiveness of the 
Order on the grounds that the Order, including the need for immediate 
effectiveness, is not based on adequate evidence but on mere suspicion, 
unfounded allegations, or error.
    In the absence of any request for hearing, or written approval of 
an extension of time in which to request a hearing, the provisions 
specified in Section III above shall be final twenty (20) days from the 
date of this Order without further order or proceedings. If an 
extension of time for requesting a hearing has been approved, the

[[Page 30045]]

provisions specified in Section III shall be final when the extension 
expires if a hearing request has not been received.
    An answer or a request for hearing shall not stay the immediate 
effectiveness of this order.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 23rd day of May, 2007.
