Download as PDF 26152 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 90 / Thursday, May 8, 2008 / Notices was already required to follow. It was agreed that the DOE would maintain day-to-day operational responsibility for the decontamination and decommissioning project, and that the NRC would impose three statutory responsibilities, which were to: (1) Conduct periodic inspections; (2) approve the release criteria used; and (3) certify the final release of the Battelle site. The NRC met with DOE and the Ohio Department of Public Health on a number of occasions to ensure good communications and coordination between the respective agencies. The NRC Safety Evaluation Report was issued in support of the license amendment. Based on this review, the NRC staff has determined that the licensee’s final status surveys are adequate to demonstrate compliance with radiological criteria for license termination, and that Battelle Memorial Institute has demonstrated that the former nuclear research site’s radiological condition complies with the radiological criteria for license termination. The NRC staff has reviewed the proposed amendment and has determined that the proposed termination will have no adverse effect on the public health and safety or the environment. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES III.
