SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) published a document in the Federal Register on September 28, 2010, concerning a public meeting and availability of a framework document initiating the rulemaking process to amend the energy conservation standards for certain commercial and industrial electric motors. DOE seeks comment from interested parties on the procedural and analytical approaches it anticipates using to evaluate energy conservation standards for commercial and industrial electric motors, which are addressed in the framework document, available at http:// www1.eere.energy.gov/buildings/ appliance_standards/commercial/ electric_motors.html. The framework document is the starting point for potentially amending the energy conservation standards for electric motors prescribed in the Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975, as amended, (EPCA) and codified in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 431. The notice of public meeting and availability of the framework document published on September 28, 2010 (75 FR 59657) informed interested parties that DOE would accept written comments on the framework document no later than October 28, 2010. The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 67637 (ACEEE), and the Appliance Standards Awareness Project (ASAP) requested a comment deadline extension of two weeks after the transcript of the October 18, 2010, framework document public meeting is posted on-line and available for public review. Based on the joint request from NEMA, ACEEE, and ASAP, DOE believes that extending the comment period to allow additional time for interested parties to submit comments is appropriate. Therefore, DOE is extending the comment period until November 24, 2010, to provide interested parties additional time to prepare and submit comments. DOE will accept comments received no later than November 24, 2010 and will not consider any further extensions to the comment period. If DOE receives any comments after October 28, 2010, but before the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register, DOE will consider those comments to be timely filed.

Discussion

    The NRC recently published a proposed rule that would revise and 
amend the security regulations pertaining to the transport of spent 
nuclear fuel. The proposed rule was published on October 13, 2010 (75

Documents related to the proposed rule can be found at http://www.regulations.gov by searching on Docket ID: NRC-2009-0163.
    In conjunction with the proposed rule, the NRC has revised NUREG-
0561, ``Physical Protection of Shipments of Irradiated Reactor Fuel.'' 
This document provides guidance to a licensee or applicant for 
implementation of proposed 10 CFR 73.37, ``Requirements for Physical 
Protection of Irradiated Reactor Fuel in Transit.'' and proposed 10 CFR 
73.38, ``Personnel Access Authorization Requirements for Irradiated 
Reactor Fuel in Transit.'' It is intended for use by applicants, 
licensees, and NRC staff. Revised NUREG-0561 describes methods 
acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing the proposed rules. The 
approaches and methods described in the document are provided for
