ACTION: Notice of Availability of Draft Final Report for Interim Use. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing draft final NRC staff guidance for activities related to U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) waste determinations (NUREG–1854), for interim use. NUREG–1854 provides guidance to the NRC staff in evaluating non-high-level waste determinations developed by DOE for the Savannah River Site, Idaho National Laboratory, Hanford, and West Valley for certain wastes that are a result of the PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel. NUREG–1854 provides elements the NRC staff should review to fulfill its responsibilities under the Ronald Reagan Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2005 (NDAA), which is to consult with DOE on its waste determinations and to monitor DOE disposal actions to assess compliance with the performance objectives in 10 CFR part 61, subpart C. NUREG–1854 does not set forth regulatory requirements for NRC or for DOE, and compliance with NUREG–1854 is not required. ADDRESSES: NUREG–1854 is available for inspection and copying for a fee at the Commission’s Public Document Room, U.S. NRC’s Headquarters Building, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, Maryland, and electronically from the ADAMS Public Library component on the NRC Web Site, http://www.nrc.gov (the Electronic Reading Room) [ML072360184].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In October 2004, the Ronald W. Reagan National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2005 (NDAA) was enacted. Section 3116 of the NDAA gave the NRC new responsibilities with respect to DOE waste management activities for certain ‘‘incidental’’ waste resulting from the reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel within the States of South Carolina and Idaho. These responsibilities include consultation with DOE on DOE’s determination whether the waste is not high-level waste (HLW), as well as monitoring DOE’s disposal actions for these wastes. The concept behind incidental waste is that some material, resulting from the reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel, does not need to be disposed of as HLW in a geologic repository because the residual radioactive contamination, if properly controlled, is sufficiently low that it does not represent a hazard to public health and safety. Consequently, incidental waste is not considered to be HLW, but instead is low-level waste. DOE uses technical analyses that are documented in a waste determination to evaluate whether waste is incidental or HLW. A waste determination provides DOE’s analysis as to whether the waste E:\FR\FM\04SEN1.SGM 04SEN1
