The number of annual respondents: 4,650. 6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 35,674 hours (4,553 reporting [approximately 0.98 hours per response] and 31,121 recordkeeping [approximately 6.7 hours per recordkeeper]). 7. Abstract: Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 19, requires licensees to advise workers on an annual basis of any radiation exposure they may have received as a result of NRC-licensed activities or when certain conditions are met. These conditions apply during termination of the worker’s employment, at the request of a worker, former worker, or when the worker’s employer (the NRC licensee) must report radiation exposure information on the worker to the NRC. Part 19 also establishes requirements for instructions by licensees to individuals participating in licensed activities and options available to these individuals in connection with Commission inspections of licensees to ascertain compliance with the provisions of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, Title II of the Energy Reorganization Act of 1974, and regulations, orders and licenses thereunder regarding radiological working conditions. The worker should be informed of the radiation dose he or she receives because: (a) That information is needed by both a new employer and the individual when the employee changes jobs in the nuclear industry; (b) the individual needs to know the radiation dose received as a result of an accident or incident (if this dose is in excess of the 10 CFR Part 20 limits) so that he or she can seek counseling about future work involving radiation, medical attention, or both, as desired; and (c) since long-term exposure to radiation may be an adverse health factor, the individual needs to know whether the accumulated dose is being controlled within NRC limits. The worker also needs to know about health risks from occupational exposure to radioactive materials or radiation, precautions or procedures to minimize exposure, worker responsibilities and options to report any licensee conditions which may lead to or cause a violation of Commission regulations, and individual radiation exposure reports which are available to him. Submit, by August 13, 2007, comments that address the following questions: 1. Is the proposed collection of information necessary for the NRC to VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:22 Jun 13, 2007 Jkt 211001 properly perform its functions? Does the information have practical utility? 2. Is the burden estimate accurate? 3. Is there a way to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected? 4. How can the burden of the information collection be minimized, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology?

The renewed license would authorize the applicant to operate the OSTR for an additional 20 years beyond the period specified in the current license. The current license for the OSTR expired on August 15, 2006. PO 00000 Frm 00090 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 On October 5, 2004, as supplemented on August 8, 2005, May 24, 2006, November 10, 2006 and November 21, 2006, the Commission’s staff received an application from the licensee filed pursuant to 10 CFR part 50.51(a), to renew Facility License No. R–106 for the OSTR. Because the license renewal application was filed in a timely manner in accordance with 10 CFR 2.109, the license will not be deemed to have expired until the license renewal application has been finally determined. The Commission’s staff has determined that the licensee has submitted sufficient information in accordance with 10 CFR 50.33 and 50.34 that the application is acceptable for docketing. The current Docket No. 50–243 for Facility License No. R–106, will be retained. The docketing of the renewal application does not preclude requesting additional information as the review proceeds, nor does it predict whether the Commission will grant or deny the application. Prior to a decision to renew the license, the Commission will have made findings required by the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the Commission’s rules and regulations. Within sixty (60) days after the date of publication of this Federal Register Notice, the applicant may file a request for a hearing, and any person whose interest may be affected by this proceeding and who wishes to participate as a party in the proceeding must file a written request for a hearing and a petition for leave to intervene with respect to the renewal of the license. Requests for a hearing and a petition for leave to intervene shall be filed in accordance with the Commission’s ‘‘Rules of Practice for Domestic Licensing Proceedings’’ in 10 CFR part 2. Interested persons should consult a current copy of 10 CFR 2.309, which is available at the Commission’s Public Document Room (PDR), located at One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, Maryland 20852 and is accessible from the Agency Public Electronic Reading Room on the Internet at the NRC Web site, http://www.nrc.gov/readingrm/doccollections/cfr.

NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION

[Docket No. 50-243]


The Oregon State University; Notice of Acceptance for Docketing 
of the Application and Notice of Opportunity for Hearing Regarding 
Renewal of the Oregon State University Research Reactor Facility 
License No. R-106 for an Additional 20-Year Period

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or the Commission) is 
considering an application for the renewal of Facility License No. R-
106, which authorizes the Oregon State University (the licensee) to 
operate the Oregon State University Research Reactor (OSTR) at a 
maximum steady-state thermal power of 1.1 megawatts (MW) thermal power. 
The renewed license would authorize the applicant to operate the OSTR 
for an additional 20 years beyond the period specified in the current 
license. The current license for the OSTR expired on August 15, 2006.
    On October 5, 2004, as supplemented on August 8, 2005, May 24, 
2006, November 10, 2006 and November 21, 2006, the Commission's staff 
received an application from the licensee filed pursuant to 10 CFR part 
50.51(a), to renew Facility License No. R-106 for the OSTR. Because the 
license renewal application was filed in a timely manner in accordance 
with 10 CFR 2.109, the license will not be deemed to have expired until 
the license renewal application has been finally determined.
    The Commission's staff has determined that the licensee has 
submitted sufficient information in accordance with 10 CFR 50.33 and 
50.34 that the application is acceptable for docketing. The current 
Docket No. 50-243 for Facility License No. R-106, will be retained. The 
docketing of the renewal application does not preclude requesting 
additional information as the review proceeds, nor does it predict 
whether the Commission will grant or deny the application. Prior to a 
decision to renew the license, the Commission will have made findings 
required by the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and 
the Commission's rules and regulations.
    Within sixty (60) days after the date of publication of this 
Federal Register Notice, the applicant may file a request for a 
hearing, and any person whose interest may be affected by this 
proceeding and who wishes to participate as a party in the proceeding 
must file a written request for a hearing and a petition for leave to 
intervene with respect to the renewal of the license. Requests for a 
hearing and a petition for leave to intervene shall be filed in 
accordance with the Commission's ``Rules of Practice for Domestic 
Licensing Proceedings'' in 10 CFR part 2. Interested persons should 
consult a current copy of 10 CFR 2.309, which is available at the 
Commission's Public Document Room (PDR), located at One White Flint 
North, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, Maryland 20852 
and is accessible from the Agency Public Electronic Reading Room on the 
Internet at the NRC Web site, http://www.nrc.gov/readingrm/doc-
collections/cfr. Persons who do not have access to the NRC Web site or 
who encounter problems in accessing the documents located in the 
Electronic Reading Room should contact the NRC's PDR reference staff at 
1-800-397-4209, or by e-mail at pdr@nrc.gov. If a request for a hearing 
or a petition for leave to intervene is filed within the 60-day period, 
the Commission or a presiding officer designated by the Commission or 
by the Chief Administrative Judge of the Atomic Safety and Licensing 
Board

[[Page 32923]]

Panel will rule on the request and/or petition; and the Secretary or 
the Chief Administrative Judge of the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board 
will issue a notice of a hearing or an appropriate order. In the event 
that no request for a hearing or petition for leave to intervene is 
filed within the 60-day period, the NRC may, upon completion of its 
evaluations and upon making the findings required under 10 CFR parts 50 
and 51, renew the license without further notice.
    As required by 10 CFR 2.309, a petition for leave to intervene 
shall set forth with the particular interest of the petitioner in the 
proceeding, and how that interest may be affected by the results of the 
proceeding. The petition must specifically explain the reasons why 
intervention should be permitted with particular reference to the 
following factors: (1) The nature of the requestor's/petitioner's right 
under the Atomic Energy Act to be made a party to the proceeding; (2) 
the nature and extent of the requester's/petitioner's property, 
financial, or other interest in the proceeding; and (3) the possible 
effect of any decision or order which may be entered in the proceeding 
on the requestor's/petitioner's interest. The petition must also set 
forth the specific contentions which the petitioner/requestor seeks to 
have litigated at the proceeding.
    Each contention must consist of a specific statement of the issue 
of law or fact to be raised or controverted. In addition, the 
requestor/petitioner shall provide a brief explanation of the bases of 
each contention and a concise statement of the alleged facts or the 
expert opinion that supports the contention on which the requestor/
petitioner intends to rely in proving the contention at the hearing. 
The requestor/petitioner must also provide references to those specific 
sources and documents of which the requestor/petitioner is aware and on 
which the requestor/petitioner intends to rely to establish those facts 
or expert opinion. The requestor/ petitioner must provide sufficient 
information to show that a genuine dispute exists with the applicant on 
a material issue of law or fact.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ To the extent that the applications contain attachments and 
supporting documents that are not publicly available because they 
are asserted to contain safeguards or proprietary information, 
petitioners desiring access to this information should contact the 
applicant or applicant's counsel and discuss the need for a 
protective order.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Contentions shall be limited to matters within the scope of the 
action under consideration. The contention must be one that, if proven, 
would entitle the requestor/petitioner to relief. A requestor/
petitioner who fails to satisfy these requirements with respect to at 
least one contention will not be permitted to participate as a party.
    Each contention shall be given a separate numeric or alpha 
designation within one of the following groups:
    1. Technical--primarily concerns/issues relating to technical and/
or health and safety matters discussed or referenced in the applicant's 
safety analysis for the OSTR license renewal application.
    2. Environmental--primarily concerns issues relating to matters 
discussed or referenced in the Environmental Report for the license 
renewal application.
    3. Miscellaneous--does not fall into one of the categories outlined 
above.
    As specified in 10 CFR 2.309, if two or more requestors/petitioners 
seek to co-sponsor a contention, the requestors/petitioners shall 
jointly designate a representative who shall have the authority to act 
for the requestors/petitioners with respect to that contention. If a 
requestor/petitioner seeks to adopt the contention of another 
sponsoring requestor/petitioner, the requestor/petitioner who seeks to 
adopt the contention must either agree that the sponsoring requestor/
petitioner shall act as the representative with respect to that 
contention, or jointly designate with the sponsoring requestor/
petitioner a representative who shall have the authority to act for the 
requestors/petitioners with respect to that contention.
    Those permitted to intervene become parties to the proceeding, 
subject to any limitations in the order granting leave to intervene, 
and have the opportunity to participate fully in the conduct of the 
hearing. A request for a hearing or a petition for leave to intervene 
must be filed by: (1) First class mail addressed to the Office of the 
Secretary of the Commission, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission,
