Dais, at telephone number (202) 693–2784 (this is not a toll-free number). Section 188 of the Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act of 1972, as established under 29 CFR part 75, authorizes the United States Department of Agriculture to make or guarantee loans or grants to finance industrial and business activities in rural areas. The Secretary of Labor must review the application for financial assistance for the purpose of certifying to the Secretary of Agriculture that the assistance is not calculated, or likely, to result in: (a) A transfer of any employment or business activity from one area to another by the loan applicant’s business operation; or, (b) An increase in the production of goods, materials, services, or facilities in an area where there is not sufficient demand to employ the efficient capacity of existing competitive enterprises unless the financial assistance will not have an adverse impact on existing competitive enterprises in the area. The Employment and Training Administration within the Department of Labor is responsible for the review and certification process. Comments should address the two bases for certification and, if possible, provide data to assist in the analysis of these issues. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Signed at Washington, DC November 8, 2007.

This general license was granted to Universal Testing at various times during calendar years 2005, 2006, and 2007. II An NRC inspection was conducted at your Clearfield, Utah, facility on April 4, 2006. Following that inspection, an investigation was initiated on May 8, 2006, by the NRC Office of Investigations (OI) in order to determine whether a radiographer employed by Universal Testing willfully violated NRC regulations. Based on the results of the NRC inspection and OI investigation, the NRC determined that a violation of NRC requirements occurred. The violation involved a failure to secure an industrial radiography exposure device containing licensed material as required by 10 CFR 20.1801 and 10 CFR 20.1802. The NRC also determined that the violation resulted from willful actions on the part of the radiographer involved. III In a letter dated February 23, 2007, the NRC issued a Notice of Violation and Proposed Imposition of Civil Penalty—$6,500 for the violation. In the February 23, 2007, letter, the NRC offered Universal Testing the opportunity to request Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) with the NRC in an attempt to resolve issues associated with these violations. In response to the February 23, 2007, letter, Universal Testing requested ADR to resolve the matter with the NRC. ADR is a process in which a neutral mediator, with no decision-making authority, assists the NRC and Universal Testing to resolve any differences regarding the matter. An ADR session was conducted between Universal Testing and the NRC in Arlington, Texas, on July 25, 2007. During that ADR session, an Agreement in Principle was reached. The elements of the agreement consisted of the following: 1. Universal Testing will add one additional qualified person to conduct PO 00000 Frm 00060 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 additional field audits of its radiographers. Universal Testing will conduct at least one unannounced field audit in NRC jurisdiction on each job where that job lasts more than 3 consecutive weeks. 2. For a period of 1-year from the date of this Confirmatory Order, Universal Testing will notify the NRC the same day that it accepts any contract to perform a job in NRC jurisdiction. 3. Within 30 days from the date of this Confirmatory Order, Universal Testing will develop and implement a disciplinary program with a graded approach for infractions. This disciplinary program will consider minor infractions up to willful failures to follow the rules. The disciplinary program will emphasize individual responsibility for radiation safety and radioactive material security, and will encourage reporting safety and security concerns. The disciplinary program will include a requirement that at least one individual who is in possession of a radiography camera be capable of responding to a security alarm. 4. Universal Testing will develop, maintain, and implement a procedure for employees who are in possession of licensed material and who are away from the office, to notify company owners or managers of their location every evening. The intent of the notification is for the company to actively maintain knowledge of where licensed material is located every evening. Universal Testing will develop this procedure within 60 days of the date of this order. This procedure will include a requirement for reporting of safety and security concerns. The procedure will also include actions the company will take to find licensed material when it has not arrived at its expected location. 5. Within 1-year from the date of this Confirmatory Order, Universal Testing will discuss with the Non-Destructive Testing Manager’s Association (NDTMA) the possibility of an industrybased program to share information about radiography employees. The concept would be for this industrybased program to assist radiography companies to determine the trustworthiness and reliability of individuals applying for employment. 6. Not later than 1-year from the date of this Confirmatory Order, Universal Testing will discuss with NDTMA the possibility of submitting an article or making a presentation to the membership. The article or presentation will address the conditions of this Confirmatory Order and the value it adds to overall safe and effective operations. Alternatively, Universal E:\FR\FM\15NON1.SGM 15NON1
