SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing for public comment a draft guide in the agency’s ‘‘Regulatory Guide’’ series. This series was developed to describe and make available to the public such information as methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the NRC’s regulations, techniques that the staff uses in PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 39343 evaluating specific problems or postulated accidents, and data that the staff needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses. The draft regulatory guide (DG), entitled, ‘‘Protection of Safeguards Information,’’ is temporarily identified by its task number, DG–5034, which should be mentioned in all related correspondence. DG–5034 will be a new regulatory guide. Title 10, section 73.21, ‘‘Protection of Safeguards Information: Performance Requirements,’’ of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR 73.21) requires, in part, that each licensee, certificate holder, applicant, or other person who produces, receives, or acquires Safeguards Information (SGI) shall ensure that it is protected against unauthorized disclosure. This guide describes a method that the staff of the NRC considers acceptable to implement the general performance requirements specified in 10 CFR 73.21(a)(i) and (ii) that establish, implement, and maintain an information protection system that includes the applicable measures for SGI specified in 10 CFR 73.22, ‘‘Protection of Safeguards Information: Specific Requirements,’’ or 10 CFR 73.23, ‘‘Protection of Safeguards Information—Modified Handling: Specific Requirements.’’ This guide applies to all licensees, certificate holders, applicants, or other persons who produce, receive, or acquire SGI (including SGI with the designation or marking: ‘‘Safeguards Information— Modified Handling’’ (SGI–M)). The guidance and criteria contained in this document pertain to the protection of SGI as defined in 10 CFR part 73, ‘‘Physical Protection of Plants and Materials.’’ It is intended to assist licensees and other persons who produce, receive, or acquire SGI to establish an information protection system that addresses (1) Information to be protected, (2) conditions for access, (3) protection while in use or storage, (4) preparing and marking documents or other matter, (5) reproduction of matter containing SGI, (6) external transmission of documents and material, (7) processing SGI on electronic systems, (8) removal from the SGI category, and (9) destruction of matter containing SGI.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering the issuance of a license amendment to Byproduct Materials License No. 06– 00253–04. This license is held by Hartford Hospital (the Licensee), for, in part, Surgical Research on the second floor of the Crane-East Building, Medical Research on the third floor of the Crane-East Building, Animal Care and Research on the fourth floor of the Crane-East Building, Immunochemistry Research on the third floor of the Bliss Wing, and Special Hematology Research on the third floor of the High Building (the Facility), located at 80 Seymour PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The proposed action would approve the Licensee’s March 28, 2008 license amendment request, resulting in release of the Facility for unrestricted use. License No. 06–00253–04 was issued on October 11, 1956, pursuant to 10 CFR Part 30, and has been amended periodically since that time. This license authorized the Licensee to use, in part, unsealed byproduct material for purposes of conducting research and development activities on laboratory bench tops and in hoods. The Facility consists of office space and laboratories located in three buildings. The Facility is located in a commercial area. Within the Facility, use of licensed materials was confined to 13,350 square feet in the Crane—East Building, 2,400 square feet in the Bliss Wing, and 210 square feet in the High Building. In July 2002, the Licensee ceased licensed activities and initiated a survey and decontamination of the Facility. Based on the Licensee’s historical knowledge of the site and the conditions of the Facility, the Licensee determined that only routine decontamination activities, in accordance with their NRCapproved, operating radiation safety procedures, were required. The Licensee was not required to submit a decommissioning plan to the NRC because worker cleanup activities and procedures are consistent with those approved for routine operations. The Licensee conducted surveys of the Facility and provided information to the NRC to demonstrate that it meets the criteria in Subpart E of 10 CFR Part 20 for unrestricted release. Need for the Proposed Action The Licensee has ceased conducting licensed activities at the Facility, and seeks the unrestricted use of its Facility. E:\FR\FM\06AUN1.SGM 06AUN1

    The draft regulatory guide (DG), entitled, ``Protection of
