Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or Commission) is issuing a new guide in the agency’s ‘‘Regulatory Guide’’ series. This series was developed to describe and make available to the public information such as methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the agency’s regulations, techniques that the staff uses in evaluating specific problems or postulated accidents, and data that the staff needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses. Regulatory Guide 5.80, ‘‘PressureSensitive and Tamper-Indicating Device Seals for Material Control and Accounting of Special Nuclear Material,’’ was issued with a temporary identification as Draft Regulatory Guide, DG–5029. This regulatory guide replaces the existing RG 5.10, ‘‘Selection and Use of Pressure-Sensitive Seals on VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:45 Dec 16, 2010 Jkt 223001 Containers for Onsite Storage of Special Nuclear Material,’’ issued July 1973, and the existing RG 5.15, ‘‘TamperIndicating Seals for the Protection and Control of Special Nuclear Material,’’ issued March 1997, with a new regulatory guide titled, ‘‘PressureSensitive and Tamper-Indicating Device Seals for MC&A Use.’’ As a replacement, this guide describes a number of improved tamper-indicating devices (TIDs) and pressure-sensitive (PS) seals developed in recent years, primarily in response to commercial interests outside the nuclear industry. This guide, among other things, distinguishes between genuine and nongenuine manufactured seals and stresses serial number identification to aid in the control of material or to alert shipping and receiving personnel to containers that were opened in transit. This guide also incorporates suggestions for ensuring that TIDs are properly applied. In June 2009, DG–5029 was published with a public comment period of 60 days from the issuance of the guide. The public comment period closed on October 13, 2009. The staff’s responses to the public comments received can be located in the NRC’s Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) under Accession Number ML101810238. The regulatory analysis may be found in ADAMS under Accession Number ML101800517. Electronic copies of RG 5.80 are available through the NRC’s public Web site under ‘‘Regulatory Guides’’ at http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doccollections/. In addition, regulatory guides are available for inspection at the NRC’s Public Document Room (PDR) located at 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland. The PDR’s mailing address is USNRC PDR, Washington, DC 20555– 0001. The PDR can also be reached by telephone at 301–415–4737 or 1–800– 397–4205, by fax at 301–415–3548, and by e-mail to pdr.resource@nrc.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing a revision to an existing guide in the agency’s ‘‘Regulatory Guide’’ series. This series was developed to describe and make available to the public information such as methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the agency’s regulations, techniques that the staff uses in evaluating specific problems or postulated accidents, and data that the staff needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses. Revision 1 of Regulatory Guide 3.12, ‘‘General Design Guide for Ventilation Systems of Plutonium Processing and Fuel Fabrication Plant,’’ was issued with a temporary identification as Draft Regulatory Guide, DG–3034. This guide describes a method that the staff of the NRC considers acceptable for use in complying with Title 10, § 70.23(a)(3), of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR 70.23(a)(3)), and 10 CFR 70.23(a)(4) on the design of ventilation systems for plutonium processing and fuel fabrication plants. At plutonium processing and fuel fabrication plants, a principal risk to health and safety is the release and dispersal of radioactive materials. The prevention of such release and dispersal is an important function of the ventilation systems. To meet these objectives, this guide provides recommendations for achieving defense in depth and for minimizing the release of radioactive materials to the environment. Each applicant for a license to possess and use special nuclear material in a plutonium processing and fuel fabrication plant, as defined in 10 CFR E:\FR\FM\17DEN1.SGM 17DEN1 79050 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 242 / Friday, December 17, 2010 / Notices 70.4, ‘‘Definitions,’’ must satisfy the provisions of 10 CFR 70.23, ‘‘Requirements for the Approval of Applications.’’ The regulations at 10 CFR 70.23(a)(3) and 10 CFR 70.23(a)(4) require that the applicant’s proposed equipment, facility, and procedures be adequate to protect health and minimize danger to life or property.

In order to provide the best service to OPM’s customers, one form is required and two forms are optional. The mandatory form, Privacy Release, enables representatives of the Ombudsman to obtain any information requested, examine and/or copy any records related to a request for assistance to identify, facilitate and timely resolve individuals’ claims, concerns or complaints by OPM customers and employees. This allows OPM’s representatives to properly perform their role and not violate customer privacy without the proper authorization. The second form, Third Party Authorization, allows customers of the Ombudsman to designate someone in addition to themselves, or other than themselves, to give and receive information about their request for assistance. The Third Party Authorization will not be used in every request for assistance. The third form, Request for Assistance, is web-enabled and provides customers a useful tool to provide OPM information it needs to expediently gather the facts and resolve the concern brought before the Ombudsman.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing a revision 
to an existing guide in the agency's ``Regulatory Guide'' series. This 
series was developed to describe and make available to the public 
information such as methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for 
implementing specific parts of the agency's regulations, techniques 
that the staff uses in evaluating specific problems or postulated 
accidents, and data that the staff needs in its review of applications 
for permits and licenses.
    Revision 1 of Regulatory Guide 3.12, ``General Design Guide for 
Ventilation Systems of Plutonium Processing and Fuel Fabrication 
Plant,'' was issued with a temporary identification as Draft Regulatory 
Guide, DG-3034. This guide describes a method that the staff of the NRC 
considers acceptable for use in complying with Title 10, Sec.  
70.23(a)(3), of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR 70.23(a)(3)), 
and 10 CFR 70.23(a)(4) on the design of ventilation systems for 
plutonium processing and fuel fabrication plants. At plutonium 
processing and fuel fabrication plants, a principal risk to health and 
safety is the release and dispersal of radioactive materials. The 
prevention of such release and dispersal is an important function of 
the ventilation systems. To meet these objectives, this guide provides 
recommendations for achieving defense in depth and for minimizing the 
release of radioactive materials to the environment.
    Each applicant for a license to possess and use special nuclear 
material in a plutonium processing and fuel fabrication plant, as 
defined in 10 CFR

[[Page 79050]]

70.4, ``Definitions,'' must satisfy the provisions of 10 CFR 70.23, 
``Requirements for the Approval of Applications.'' The regulations at 
10 CFR 70.23(a)(3) and 10 CFR 70.23(a)(4) require that the applicant's 
proposed equipment, facility, and procedures be adequate to protect 
health and minimize danger to life or property.

II. Further Information

    In July 2008, DG-3034 was published with a public comment period of 
60 days from the issuance of the guide. The public comment period 
closed on October 1, 2008. The comments and responses are available 
through the NRC's Agencywide Documents Access and Management System 
(ADAMS) under Accession No. ML102730465. Electronic copies of 
Regulatory Guide 3.12, Revision 1 are available through the NRC's 
public Web site under ``Regulatory Guides'' at http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-collections/. The regulatory analysis may be found in 
ADAMS under Accession No. ML102730449.
    In addition, regulatory guides are available for inspection at the 
NRC's Public Document Room (PDR) located at Room O1-F21, One White 
Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland 20852-2738. The 
PDR's mailing address is USNRC PDR, Washington, DC 20555-0001. The PDR 
can also be reached by telephone at 301-415-4737 or 1-800-397-4209, by
