Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is withdrawing Regulatory Guide 9.4, ‘‘Suggested Format for Cash Flow Statements Submitted as Guarantees of Payment of Retrospective Premiums,’’ which was issued for comment in September 1978. Regulatory Guide 9.4 proposes a format for cash flow statements to be submitted by the licensee to demonstrate compliance with title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), subpart 140.21, ‘‘Licensee guarantees of payment of deferred premiums.’’ The method described in Regulatory Guide 9.4 unnecessarily duplicates other financial and insurance verification documents submitted by the licensees to demonstrate compliance with other sections of 10 CFR part 140. Rather than submit separate cash flow and financial assurance statements, licensees may submit proof of sufficient insurance bonding through American Nuclear Insurers or similar insurance groups. This insurance bond meets the requirements of 10 CFR 140.21(a) and eliminates the need for a separate cash flow statement. E:\FR\FM\22OCN1.SGM 22OCN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is withdrawing 
Regulatory Guide 9.1, ``Regulatory Staff Position Statement on 
Antitrust Matters,'' published December 1973; Regulatory Guide 9.2, 
``Information Needed by the NRC Staff in Connection with its Antitrust 
Review of Construction Permit Applications for Nuclear Power Plants,'' 
initially published October 1974, and revised June 1976; and Regulatory 
Guide 9.3, ``Information Needed by the AEC Regulatory Staff in 
Connection with its Antitrust Review of Operating License Applications 
for Nuclear Power Plants,'' published October 1974. The NRC is 
withdrawing these three regulatory guides because they are no longer 
required.
    These three regulatory guides address the antitrust review 
conducted by the staff during the evaluation of new plant construction 
and operating license applications. The review was required by Section 
105.c of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended. Section 625 of the 
Energy Policy Act of 2005 (Pub. L. 109-058) removed the NRC's authority 
to perform these antitrust reviews for applications submitted after the 
date of enactment of the law. The Energy Policy Act of 2005 was passed 
by the U.S. Congress on July 29, 2005, and signed into law by President 
George W. Bush on August 8, 2005. Consequently, the staff has 
determined that Regulatory Guides 9.1, 9.2, and 9.3 are no longer 
required.

II. Further Information

    The withdrawal of Regulatory Guides 9.1, 9.2, and 9.3 does not, in 
and of itself, alter any prior or existing licensing commitments based 
on their use. The guidance provided in these regulatory guides is no 
longer applicable. Regulatory guides may be withdrawn when their 
guidance is superseded by congressional action or otherwise no longer 
provides useful information.
    Regulatory guides are available for inspection or downloading 
through the NRC's public Web site under ``Regulatory Guides'' in the 
NRC's Electronic Reading Room at http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-
collections. Regulatory guides are also available for inspection at the 
NRC's Public Document Room (PDR), Room O-1F21, One White Flint North, 
11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland 20852-2738. The PDR's mailing 
address is U.S. NRC PDR, Washington, DC 20555-0001. The PDR staff can 
be reached by telephone at 301-415-4737 or 800-397-4209, by fax at 301-
415-3548, and by e-mail to pdr@nrc.gov.

required to reproduce them.
