The NRC staff will perform a detailed technical review of the application. Docketing of the application does not preclude the NRC from requesting additional information from the applicant as the review proceeds, nor does it predict whether the Commission will grant or deny the application. The Commission will conduct a hearing in accordance with Subpart L, ‘‘Informal Hearing Procedures for NRC Adjudications,’’ of 10 CFR Part 2 and will receive a report on the COL application from the Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards in accordance with 10 CFR 52.87, ‘‘Referral to the Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards (ACRS).’’ If the Commission finds that the COL application meets the applicable standards of the Atomic Energy Act and the Commission’s regulations, and that required notifications to other agencies and bodies have been made, the Commission will issue a COL, in the form and containing conditions and limitations that the Commission finds appropriate and necessary. In accordance with 10 CFR Part 51, the Commission will also prepare an environmental impact statement for the proposed action. Pursuant to 10 CFR 51.26, and as part of the environmental scoping process, the staff intends to hold a public scoping meeting. Detailed information regarding this meeting will be included in a future Federal Register notice. Finally, the Commission will publish in the Federal Register a notice of hearing, which will notice the opportunity to petition to intervene.

ACTION: Solicitation of public comment. SUMMARY: The NRC is soliciting public comment on its Proposed Interim Staff Guidance (ISG) DC/COL–ISG–06 (ADAMS Accession No. ML081850160). This ISG is to clarify the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) position on what is an acceptable level of detail and content for demonstrating compliance with Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations Section 20.1406 (10 CFR 20.1406). Regulatory Guide (RG) 4.21, ‘‘Minimization of Contamination and Waste Generation: Life Cycle Planning,’’ provides an acceptable method of demonstrating compliance. This ISG provides further clarification on the evaluation and acceptance criteria that will be used by NRC staff in reaching a reasonable assurance finding that a Design Certification (DC) or Combined License (COL) applicant has complied with the requirements of 10 CFR 20.1406. The NRC staff issues DC/COL–ISGs to facilitate timely implementation of the current staff guidance and to facilitate activities associated with review of applications for DC and COLs by the Office of New Reactors. The NRC staff will also incorporate the approved DC/COL–ISG– 006 into the next revision of the Standard Review Plan and related guidance documents.

Pursuant to its authority under section 5051 of Public Law 100–203, Nuclear Waste Policy Amendments Act of 1987, the U.S. Nuclear Waste Technical Review Board will meet in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Wednesday, September 24, 2008. At the meeting, the Board will review U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) activities related to designing and operating a waste management system in connection with the proposed repository for spent nuclear fuel and high level radioactive waste (HLW) at Yucca Mountain in Nevada. Among the issues that will be discussed are acceptance of spent nuclear fuel or HLW at commercial reactors or defense facilities; packaging of commercial spent nuclear fuel in transportation, aging, and disposal (TAD) canisters; transportation of the waste, including construction of a Nevada rail line; throughput of the waste at repository surface facilities; and plans for prototyping and testing of waste management equipment and facilities. The Board was charged in the Nuclear Waste Policy Amendments Act of 1987 with conducting an independent review of the technical and scientific validity of DOE activities related to the implementation of the Nuclear Waste Policy Act, including disposing of, packaging, and transporting spent nuclear fuel and HLW. The Board meeting will be held at the Suncoast Hotel & Casino, 9090 Alta PO 00000 Frm 00102 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Drive, Las Vegas (Summerlin), Nevada 89145; (tel) 702–636–7111, (toll free) 877–677–7111.

John Garrick will call the meeting to order at 8 a.m. Dr. Garrick’s remarks will be followed by a DOE program overview and project status report. DOE then will make a presentation on issues related to waste acceptance, followed by a utility perspective on the same subject. After a break for lunch, the implications of TAD utilization for transportation and repository site operations will be discussed. A presentation on integrated systems’ operations will follow. The last presentation of the day will be on DOE’s prototyping and testing program for waste management equipment and facilities. Time will be set aside at the end of the day for public comments. Those wanting to speak are encouraged to sign the ‘‘Public Comment Register’’ at the check-in table. A time limit may have to be set on individual remarks, but written comments of any length may be submitted for the record. Transcripts of the meeting will be available on the Board’s Web site, by email, on computer disk, and on a library-loan basis in paper format from Davonya Barnes of the Board’s staff no later than October 20, 2008.
