Introduction The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has received, by letter dated May 15, 2007, a license amendment application from Nuclear Fuel Services, Inc., requesting to increase the uranium235 possession limit at its facility site located in Erwin, Tennessee. License No. SNM–124 authorizes the licensee to manufacture nuclear reactor fuel. Specifically, the amendment provides authorization to receive and store more uranium-235 than the current license permits. An NRC administrative review, documented in a letter to Nuclear Fuel Services dated June 18, 2007, found the application acceptable to begin a technical review. If the NRC approves the amendment, the approval will be documented in an amendment to NRC License No. SNM–124. However, before approving the proposed amendment, the NRC will need to make the findings required by the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, and NRC’s regulations. These findings will be documented in a Safety Evaluation Report and an Environmental Assessment.

supporting bases, in full, separately for each category into which the 
requester/petitioner asserts the contention belongs with a separate 
designation for that category.
    Requesters/petitioners should, when possible, consult with each 
other in preparing contentions and combine similar subject matter 
concerns into a joint contention, for which one of the co-sponsoring 
requesters/petitioners is designated the lead representative. Further,
