ACTION: Notice of information collection cancellation. SUMMARY: We are cancelling FR Notice 08–093, Information Collection Title: TITLE IX Survey, published at 73 FR 70678, November 21, 2008, because we determined the need to implement compliance programs under three additional grant-related civil rights laws for which NASA has regulations, i.e., Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Age Discrimination Act of 1975. In FY 2009, NASA will stand-up compliance programs involving at least one onsite compliance review pursuant to each of these laws. We also need to issue a notice of information collection that can support our compliance activities under all four laws, reflecting the differing coverage under each of the laws.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) is considering the issuance of an order under 10 CFR 72.50 approving the indirect transfer of Special Nuclear Materials (SNM) License No. 2512 for the Idaho Spent Fuel (ISF) Facility independent spent fuel storage installation (ISFSI) currently held by Foster Wheeler Environmental Corporation (FWENC). According to an application for approval filed by FWENC, the indirect transfer of control of FWENC’s license would result from a planned corporate restructuring whereby Foster Wheeler AG will become the new corporate parent holding company, replacing FWENC’s current parent holding company, Foster Wheeler Ltd. Foster Wheeler Ltd. is a corporation duly organized under the laws of Bermuda, with shares that are widely held and publicly traded in the United States on the NASDAQ Global Select Market. The proposed new parent holding company, Foster Wheeler AG, is a corporation duly organized under the laws of Switzerland. No physical changes to the ISF facility or operational changes are being proposed in the application. Additionally, according to the application, the proposed restructuring will not impact the operations of FWENC, nor will it impact any of the terms and conditions under which it holds SNM–2512. Pursuant to 10 CFR 72.50, no license or any part included in a license issued under 10 CFR Part 72 for an ISFSI shall be transferred, assigned, or in any manner disposed of, either voluntarily or involuntarily, directly or indirectly, through transfer of control of the license to any person, unless the Commission shall give its consent in writing. The Commission will approve an application for the indirect transfer of a license, if the Commission determines that the proposed restructuring will not affect the qualifications of the licensee to hold the license, and that the transfer is consistent with applicable provisions of law and the regulations and orders issued by the Commission. The filing of requests for hearing and petitions for leave to intervene, and written comments with regard to the license transfer application, are discussed below. PO 00000 Frm 00082 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Within 20 days from the date of publication of this notice, any person(s) whose interest may be affected by the Commission’s action on the application may request a hearing and intervention via electronic submission through the NRC E-filing system. Requests for a hearing and petitions for leave to intervene should be filed in accordance with the Commission’s rules of practice set forth in Subpart C ‘‘Rules of General Applicability: Hearing Requests, Petitions to Intervene, Availability of Documents, Selection of Specific Hearing Procedures, Presiding Officer Powers, and General Hearing Management for NRC Adjudicatory Hearings,’’ of 10 CFR Part 2. In particular, such requests and petitions must comply with the requirements set forth in 10 CFR 2.309. Untimely requests and petitions may be denied, as provided in 10 CFR 2.309(c)(1), unless good cause for failure to file on time is established. In addition, an untimely request or petition should address the factors that the Commission will also consider, in reviewing untimely requests or petitions, set forth in 10 CFR 2.309(c)(1)(i)–(viii). A request for hearing or a petition for leave to intervene must be filed in accordance with the NRC E-Filing rule, which the NRC promulgated on August 28, 2007 (72 FR 49139). The E-Filing process requires participants to submit and serve documents over the internet or in some cases to mail copies on electronic storage media. Participants may not submit paper copies of their filings unless they seek a waiver in accordance with the procedures described below. To comply with the procedural requirements of E-Filing, at least ten (10) days prior to the filing deadline, the petitioner/requestor must contact the Office of the Secretary by e-mail at hearing.docket@nrc.gov, or by calling (301) 415–1677, to request (1) a digital ID certificate, which allows the participant (or its counsel or representative) to digitally sign documents and access the E-Submittal server for any proceeding in which it is participating; and/or (2) creation of an electronic docket for the proceeding (even in instances in which the petitioner/requestor (or its counsel or representative) already holds an NRCissued digital ID certificate). Each petitioner/requestor will need to download the Workplace Forms ViewerTM to access the Electronic Information Exchange (EIE), a component of the E-Filing system. The Workplace Forms ViewerTM is free and is available at http://www.nrc.gov/sitehelp/e-submittals/install-viewer.html.

Upon receipt of a transmission, the E-Filing system time-stamps the document and sends the submitter an e-mail notice confirming receipt of the document. The EIE system also distributes an e-mail notice that provides access to the document to the NRC Office of the General Counsel and any others who have advised the Office of the Secretary that they wish to participate in the proceeding, so that the filer need not serve the documents on those participants separately. Therefore, applicants and other participants (or their counsel or representative) must apply for and receive a digital ID certificate before a hearing request/ petition to intervene is filed so that they can obtain access to the document via the E-Filing system. A person filing electronically may seek assistance through the ‘‘Contact Us’’ link located on the NRC Web site at http://www.nrc.gov/site-help/esubmittals.html or by calling the NRC technical help line, which is available between 8:30 a.m. and 4:15 p.m., Eastern Time, Monday through Friday.

Filing is considered complete by firstclass mail as of the time of deposit in the mail, or by courier, express mail, or expedited delivery service upon depositing the document with the provider of the service. Non-timely requests and/or petitions and contentions will not be entertained absent a determination by the Commission, the presiding officer, or the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board that the petition and/or request should be granted and/or the contentions should be admitted, based on a balancing of the factors specified in 10 CFR 2.309(c)(1)(i)–(viii). To be timely, filings must be submitted no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on the due date.

Proposed Corporate Restructuring and Opportunity for a Hearing

AGENCY: U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Notice of indirect license transfer application and opportunity 
to request a hearing.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION, CONTACT: Shana Helton, Senior Project Manager, 
Licensing Branch, Division of Spent Fuel Storage and Transportation, 
Office of Nuclear Material Safety and Safeguards (NMSS), U.S. Nuclear 
Regulatory Commission (NRC), Rockville, MD 20852. Telephone: (301) 492-
3284; fax number: (301) 492-3348; e-mail: shana.helton@nrc.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the 
Commission) is considering the issuance of an order under 10 CFR 72.50 
approving the indirect transfer of Special Nuclear Materials (SNM) 
License No. 2512 for the Idaho Spent Fuel (ISF) Facility independent 
spent fuel storage installation (ISFSI) currently held by Foster 
Wheeler Environmental Corporation (FWENC).
    According to an application for approval filed by FWENC, the 
indirect transfer of control of FWENC's license would result from a 
planned corporate restructuring whereby Foster Wheeler AG will become 
the new corporate parent holding company, replacing FWENC's current 
parent holding company, Foster Wheeler Ltd. Foster Wheeler Ltd. is a 
corporation duly organized under the laws of Bermuda, with shares that 
are widely held and publicly traded in the United States on the NASDAQ 
Global Select Market. The proposed new parent holding company, Foster 
Wheeler AG, is a corporation duly organized under the laws of 
Switzerland.
    No physical changes to the ISF facility or operational changes are 
being proposed in the application. Additionally, according to the 
application, the proposed restructuring will not impact the operations 
of FWENC, nor will it impact any of the terms and conditions under 
which it holds SNM-2512.
    Pursuant to 10 CFR 72.50, no license or any part included in a 
license issued under 10 CFR Part 72 for an ISFSI shall be transferred, 
assigned, or in any manner disposed of, either voluntarily or 
involuntarily, directly or indirectly, through transfer of control of 
the license to any person, unless the Commission shall give its consent 
in writing. The Commission will approve an application for the indirect 
transfer of a license, if the Commission determines that the proposed 
restructuring will not affect the qualifications of the licensee to 
hold the license, and that the transfer is consistent with applicable 
provisions of law and the regulations and orders issued by the 
Commission.
    The filing of requests for hearing and petitions for leave to 
intervene, and written comments with regard to the license transfer 
application, are discussed below.
    Within 20 days from the date of publication of this notice, any 
person(s) whose interest may be affected by the Commission's action on 
the application may request a hearing and intervention via electronic 
submission through the NRC E-filing system. Requests for a hearing and 
petitions for leave to intervene should be filed in accordance with the 
Commission's rules of practice set forth in Subpart C ``Rules of 
General Applicability: Hearing Requests, Petitions to Intervene, 
Availability of Documents, Selection of Specific Hearing Procedures, 
Presiding Officer Powers, and General Hearing Management for NRC 
Adjudicatory Hearings,'' of 10 CFR Part 2. In particular, such requests 
and petitions must comply with the requirements set forth in 10 CFR 
2.309. Untimely requests and petitions may be denied, as provided in 10 
CFR 2.309(c)(1), unless good cause for failure to file on time is 
established. In addition, an untimely request or petition should 
address the factors that the Commission will also consider, in 
reviewing untimely requests or petitions, set forth in 10 CFR 
2.309(c)(1)(i)-(viii).
    A request for hearing or a petition for leave to intervene must be 
filed in accordance with the NRC E-Filing rule, which the NRC 
promulgated on August 28, 2007 (72 FR 49139). The E-Filing process 
requires participants to submit and serve documents over the internet 
or in some cases to mail copies on electronic storage media. 
Participants may not submit paper copies of their filings unless they 
seek a waiver in accordance with the procedures described below.
    To comply with the procedural requirements of E-Filing, at least 
ten (10) days prior to the filing deadline, the petitioner/requestor 
must contact the Office of the Secretary by e-mail at 
hearing.docket@nrc.gov, or by calling (301) 415-1677, to request (1) a 
digital ID certificate, which allows the participant (or its counsel or 
representative) to digitally sign documents and access the E-Submittal 
server for any proceeding in which it is participating; and/or (2) 
creation of an electronic docket for the proceeding (even in instances 
in which the petitioner/requestor (or its counsel or representative) 
already holds an NRC-issued digital ID certificate). Each petitioner/
requestor will need to download the Workplace Forms Viewer\TM\ to 
access the Electronic Information Exchange (EIE), a component of the E-
Filing system. The Workplace Forms Viewer\TM\ is free and is available 
at http://www.nrc.gov/site-help/e-submittals/install-viewer.html.

[[Page 79519]]

Information about applying for a digital ID certificate is available on 
NRC's public Web site at http://www.nrc.gov/site-help/e-submittals/
apply-certificates.html.
    Once a petitioner/requestor has obtained a digital ID certificate, 
had a docket created, and downloaded the EIE viewer, it can then submit 
a request for hearing or petition for leave to intervene. Submissions 
should be in Portable Document Format (PDF) in accordance with NRC 
guidance available on the NRC public Web site at http://www.nrc.gov/
site-help/e-submittals.html. A filing is considered complete at the 
time the filer submits its documents through EIE. To be timely, an 
electronic filing must be submitted to the EIE system no later than 
11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on the due date. Upon receipt of a 
transmission, the E-Filing system time-stamps the document and sends 
the submitter an e-mail notice confirming receipt of the document. The 
EIE system also distributes an e-mail notice that provides access to 
the document to the NRC Office of the General Counsel and any others 
who have advised the Office of the Secretary that they wish to 
participate in the proceeding, so that the filer need not serve the 
documents on those participants separately. Therefore, applicants and 
other participants (or their counsel or representative) must apply for 
and receive a digital ID certificate before a hearing request/petition 
to intervene is filed so that they can obtain access to the document 
via the E-Filing system.
    A person filing electronically may seek assistance through the 
``Contact Us'' link located on the NRC Web site at http://www.nrc.gov/
site-help/e-submittals.html or by calling the NRC technical help line,

    Participants who believe that they have a good cause for not 
submitting documents electronically must file a motion, in accordance 
with 10 CFR 2.302(g), with their initial paper filing requesting 
authorization to continue to submit documents in paper format. Such 
filings must be submitted by: (1) First class mail addressed to the 
Office of the Secretary of the Commission, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory

other participants. Filing is considered complete by first-class mail 
as of the time of deposit in the mail, or by courier, express mail, or 
expedited delivery service upon depositing the document with the 
provider of the service.
    Non-timely requests and/or petitions and contentions will not be 
entertained absent a determination by the Commission, the presiding 
officer, or the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board that the petition 
and/or request should be granted and/or the contentions should be 
admitted, based on a balancing of the factors specified in 10 CFR 
2.309(c)(1)(i)-(viii). To be timely, filings must be submitted no later 
than 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on the due date.
    Documents submitted in adjudicatory proceedings will appear in 
NRC's electronic hearing docket which is available to the public at

hearing request or intervention petition, designating the issues for 
any hearing that will be held and designating the Presiding Officer. A 
notice granting a hearing will be published in the Federal Register and 
served on the parties to the hearing.
    Within 30 days from the date of publication of this notice, persons 
may submit written comments regarding the license transfer application,
