SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background MD 8.11, ‘‘Review Process for 10 CFR 2.206 Petitions,’’ is a guidance document that details the internal procedures for NRC staff review and disposition of petitions submitted under Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) 2.206. Because some of these internal procedures directly impact the interaction between members of the public and the NRC, the NRC is soliciting comments from the public, on what, if any, revisions should be made to the agency’s internal process as described in MD 8.11. The 10 CFR 2.206 process is the primary mechanism for a member of the public to request Commission review of a potential safety problem with an NRC licensed facility, outside of a licensing or rulemaking proceeding. Any person may file a petition under 10 CFR 2.206 to request that the Commission modify, suspend, or revoke a license, or take any other enforcement-related action that may be proper. This process provides the public with a mechanism to raise issues of concern to the Commission. Each 10 CFR 2.206 petition is reviewed by the E:\FR\FM\30JYN1.SGM 30JYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 146 / Friday, July 30, 2010 / Notices appropriate major program Office. Upon receipt of each petition, the appropriate program Office assembles a petition review board (PRB) typically consisting of a Senior Executive Service level manager, a petition manager, a petition coordinator, technical experts, regional inspectors, and legal and enforcement advisors. The PRB follows the guidance in MD 8.11 to determine if the petition meets the criteria for review. If the PRB determines that the petition meets the criteria for review, the office director issues a formal Director’s Decision providing a specific disposition of the issues raised in the petition. If the Office Director finds that the petition raises a substantial safety concern, an enforcement order may be issued or other appropriate action taken, within the Office Director’s discretion. Discussion In support of the NRC’s efforts to update each MD every five years, the NRC staff is evaluating MD 8.11, which details the internal procedures for NRC staff review and disposition of petitions submitted under Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) 2.206. The purpose of this evaluation is to ensure that the 10 CFR 2.206 process is an effective, equitable, and credible mechanism for the public to prompt Commission investigation and resolution of potential health and safety problems. This evaluation is consistent with current Commission efforts to ensure openness in the Commission’s decision making process. The NRC plans to consider comments provided by members of the public during its evaluation of MD 8.11. Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 15th day of July 2010. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Introduction The Postal Service seeks to add a new product, Global Plus 2A, to the competitive product list and to that end, filed notice, pursuant to 39 CFR 3015.5, announcing that it has entered into two additional Global Plus 2A contracts.1 The Postal Service states that the instant contracts are functionally equivalent to one another and to previously submitted Global Plus 2 contracts, and are filed in accordance with Order No. 112.2 It states further that the instant contracts are supported by Governors’ Decision No. 08–10, which establishes prices and classifications not of general applicability for Global Direct, Global Bulk Economy and Global Plus Contracts.3 While the Postal Service’s filing was not submitted pursuant to 39 U.S.C. 3020.30 et seq., it appears to request the addition of a new product to the competitive product list. Docket No. MC2010–27 is established to consider this part of the filing. 1 Notice of the United States Postal Service of Filing of Two Functionally Equivalent Global Plus 2A Contracts Negotiated Service Agreements, July 13, 2010 (Notice); see Errata to Notice of the United States Postal Service of Filing of Two Functionally Equivalent Global Plus 2A Contracts Negotiated Service Agreements, July 14, 2010; see also Notice of the United States Postal Service of Filing a Signed Global Plus 2A Negotiated Service Agreement, July 15, 2010. 2 See Docket Nos.

The contracts have been assigned Docket Nos. CP2010–69 and CP2010–70, respectively. The instant contracts. The Postal Service filed the instant contracts pursuant to 39 CFR 3015. The Postal Service states that the instant contracts are the immediate successor contracts to those in Docket Nos. CP2009–48 and CP2009–49 that are scheduled to expire July 31, 2010. Notice at 2–3. The instant contracts are expected to begin August 1, 2010, and expire on the day prior to the day of any changes in the published rates that affect the Qualifying Mail subject to the contracts. Id. at 3–4. The Postal Service filed copies of the contracts, Governors’ Decision with attachments, and supporting financial documentation under seal. Id. at 2. Additionally, in support of its Notice, the Postal Service filed the following five attachments: 1. Attachment 1–a statement of supporting justification required by 39 CFR 3020.32; 2. Attachments 2A and 2B–a redacted copy of each contract; 3. Attachment 3A and 3B–a certified statement for each contract required by 39 CFR 3015.5(c)(2); 4.

Attachment 5–an application for non-public treatment of materials to maintain the contract and supporting documents under seal. Functional equivalence. The Postal Service asserts that the instant contracts are functionally equivalent both to one another and to the precursor Global Plus 2 contracts in that they share similar cost and market characteristics. Id. at 4. It contends as a result the instant contracts should be grouped together as a single product. Id. The Postal Service addresses similarities in the instant contracts and their predecessors, e.g., that the customers are the same and that fundamental terms and conditions of the contracts remain essentially unchanged. In addition the Postal Service identifies what it characterizes as material changes in the contracts, e.g., term, price incentives, and additional service options. It asserts that the differences do not affect either the E:\FR\FM\30JYN1.SGM 30JYN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    MD 8.11, ``Review Process for 10 CFR 2.206 Petitions,'' is a 
guidance document that details the internal procedures for NRC staff 
review and disposition of petitions submitted under Title 10 of the 
Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) 2.206. Because some of these 
internal procedures directly impact the interaction between members of 
the public and the NRC, the NRC is soliciting comments from the public, 
on what, if any, revisions should be made to the agency's internal 
process as described in MD 8.11. The 10 CFR 2.206 process is the 
primary mechanism for a member of the public to request Commission 
review of a potential safety problem with an NRC licensed facility, 
outside of a licensing or rulemaking proceeding. Any person may file a 
petition under 10 CFR 2.206 to request that the Commission modify, 
suspend, or revoke a license, or take any other enforcement-related 
action that may be proper. This process provides the public with a 
mechanism to raise issues of concern to the Commission. Each 10 CFR 
2.206 petition is reviewed by the

appropriate major program Office. Upon receipt of each petition, the 
appropriate program Office assembles a petition review board (PRB) 
typically consisting of a Senior Executive Service level manager, a 
petition manager, a petition coordinator, technical experts, regional 
inspectors, and legal and enforcement advisors. The PRB follows the 
guidance in MD 8.11 to determine if the petition meets the criteria for 
review. If the PRB determines that the petition meets the criteria for 
review, the office director issues a formal Director's Decision 
providing a specific disposition of the issues raised in the petition. 
If the Office Director finds that the petition raises a substantial 
safety concern, an enforcement order may be issued or other appropriate 
action taken, within the Office Director's discretion.

Discussion

    In support of the NRC's efforts to update each MD every five years, 
the NRC staff is evaluating MD 8.11, which details the internal 
procedures for NRC staff review and disposition of petitions submitted 
under Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) 2.206. The 
purpose of this evaluation is to ensure that the 10 CFR 2.206 process 
is an effective, equitable, and credible mechanism for the public to 
prompt Commission investigation and resolution of potential health and 
safety problems. This evaluation is consistent with current Commission 
efforts to ensure openness in the Commission's decision making process. 
The NRC plans to consider comments provided by members of the public 
during its evaluation of MD 8.11.
