Publication of Federal Register notice of hearing and opportunity to petition for leave to intervene, including order with instructions for access requests. Deadline for submitting requests for access to sensitive unclassified non-safeguards information (SUNSI) and/or safeguards information (SGI) with information: Supporting the standing of a potential party identified by name and address; describing the need for the information in order for the potential party to participate meaningfully in an adjudicatory proceeding; demonstrating that access should be granted (e.g., showing technical competence for access to SGI); and, for SGI, including application fee for the fingerprint/background check. Deadline for submitting petition for intervention containing: (i) Demonstration of standing; (ii) all contentions whose formulation does not require access to SUNSI and/or SGI (+25 Answers to petition for intervention; +7 requestor/petitioner reply). Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) staff informs the requestor of the staff’s determination whether the request for access provides a reasonable basis to believe standing can be established and shows (1) need for SUNSI or (2) ‘‘need to know’’ for SGI. (For SUNSI, NRC staff also informs any party to the proceeding whose interest independent of the proceeding would be harmed by the release of the information.) If NRC staff makes the finding of need for SUNSI and likelihood of standing, NRC staff begins document processing (preparation of redactions or review of redacted documents). If NRC staff makes the finding of ‘‘need to know’’ for SGI and likelihood of standing, NRC staff begins background check (including fingerprinting for a criminal history records check), information processing (preparation of redactions or review of redacted documents), and readiness inspections. If NRC staff finds no ‘‘need to know,’’ or no likelihood of standing, the deadline for requestor/petitioner to file a motion seeking a ruling to reverse the NRC staff’s denial of access; NRC staff files copy of access determination with the presiding officer (or Chief Administrative Judge or other designated officer, as appropriate). If NRC staff finds need for SUNSI, the deadline for any party to the proceeding whose interest independent of the proceeding would be harmed by the release of the information to file a motion seeking a ruling to reverse the NRC staff’s grant of access. Deadline for NRC staff reply to motions to reverse NRC staff determination(s). (Receipt +30) If NRC staff finds standing and need for SUNSI, deadline for NRC staff to complete information processing and file motion for Protective Order and draft Non-Disclosure Affidavit. Deadline for applicant/licensee to file Non-Disclosure Agreement for SUNSI. (Receipt +180) If NRC staff finds standing, ‘‘need to know’’ for SGI, and trustworthiness and reliability, deadline for NRC staff to file motion for Protective Order and draft Non-disclosure Affidavit (or to make a determination that the proposed recipient of SGI is not trustworthy or reliable). Note: Before the Office of Administration makes an adverse determination regarding access to SGI, the proposed recipient must be provided an opportunity to correct or explain information. Deadline for petitioner to seek reversal of a final adverse NRC staff trustworthiness or reliability determination either before the presiding officer or another designated officer under 10 CFR 2.705(c)(3)(iv). If access granted: Issuance of presiding officer or other designated officer decision on motion for protective order for access to sensitive information (including schedule for providing access and submission of contentions) or decision reversing a final adverse determination by the NRC staff. Deadline for filing executed Non-Disclosure Affidavits. Access provided to SUNSI and/or SGI consistent with decision issuing the protective order. Deadline for submission of contentions whose development depends upon access to SUNSI and/or SGI. However, if more than 25 days remain between the petitioner’s receipt of (or access to) the information and the deadline for filing all other contentions (as established in the notice of hearing or opportunity for hearing), the petitioner may file its SUNSI or SGI contentions by that later deadline. (Contention receipt +25) Answers to contentions whose development depends upon access to SUNSI and/or SGI. (Answer receipt +7) Petitioner/Intervener reply to answers.

[Docket No. 50-020; NRC-2010-0313]


Massachusetts Institute of Technology Reactor Notice of Issuance 
of Renewed Facility Operating; License No. R-37

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has issued renewed 
Facility Operating License No. R-37, held by the Massachusetts 
Institute of Technology (the licensee), which authorizes continued 
operation of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Reactor (MITR-
II), located in Cambridge, Middlesex County, Massachusetts. The MITR-II 
is a tank-type, light-water-cooled-and-moderated, heavy-water-reflected 
research reactor licensed to operate at a steady-state power level of 6 
megawatts thermal power. Renewed Facility Operating License No. R-37 
will expire at midnight 20 years from its date of issuance.
    The renewed license complies with the standards and requirements of 
the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the 
Commission's rules and regulations. The Commission has made appropriate 
findings as required by the Act and the Commission's regulations in 
Title 10, Chapter 1, ``Nuclear Regulatory Commission,'' of the Code of 
Federal Regulations (10 CFR), and sets forth those findings in the 
renewed license. The Agency afforded an opportunity for hearing in the 
Notice of Opportunity for Hearing published in the Federal Register on 
May 8, 2008, at 73 FR 26148. The NRC received no request for a hearing 
or petition for leave to intervene following the notice.
    The NRC staff prepared a safety evaluation report for the renewal 
of Facility Operating License No. R-37 and concluded, based on that 
evaluation, that the licensee can continue to operate the facility 
without endangering the health and safety of the public. The NRC staff 
also prepared an Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant 
Impact for license renewal, noticed in the Federal Register on October 
5, 2010, at 75 FR 61220, and concluded that renewal of the license will 
not have a significant impact on the quality of the human environment.
