Request for Comments: Review and Improvement of EDA's Regulations, 6088 [C1-2011-1937]

Download as PDF jdjones on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with PROPOSALS-1 6088 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 23 / Thursday, February 3, 2011 / Proposed Rules to the common defense and security or the public health and safety. Under Section 161A of the AEA, the Commission is authorized to approve licensees’ and certificate holders’ possession of enhanced weapons as part of a protective strategy for defending NRC-regulated facilities and radioactive material from malevolent acts. Previously, most NRC licensees and certificate holders were barred under Federal law from possessing such weapons. The NRC is publishing in the Proposed Rules section of today’s Federal Register a proposed rule titled ‘‘Enhanced Weapons, Firearms Background Checks, and Security Event Notifications (Docket ID: NRC–2011– 0018).’’ The NRC is proposing to add requirements to Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), in Section 73.18, for licensees and certificate holders to apply to the NRC to obtain enhanced weapons (see 10 CFR 73.2 of the proposed rule for a definition of enhanced weapons). Under 10 CFR 73.18(f), licensees and certificate holders applying to the NRC to possess and use enhanced weapons would be required to include a completed WSA as part of their application. The draft WSA provides a methodology to evaluate and review the safety impacts arising from the proposed use of enhanced weapons on licensee and certificate holder facilities and personnel, and on adjoining public areas. The NRC developed the draft WSA under contract with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Protective Design Center (USACE–PDC), in Omaha, Nebraska. The draft WSA is identified as document number ‘‘USACE PDC NRC TR 06–10.1 through 10.5.’’ When submitted to the NRC as part of an application to obtain enhanced weapons, a completed WSA would be controlled as Safeguards Information or classified National Security Information, as appropriate, because of the sensitive nature of the information contained in the WSA. The evaluation of the appropriateness of specific types of enhanced weapons at NRC-regulated facilities is a new effort for the NRC. As part of the development process, the NRC staff provided a draft of the WSA to three NRC licensees (two power reactor licensees and a Category I strategic special nuclear material licensee) as part of voluntary pilot program to identify any major challenges to using the WSA template. The results of the pilot program have been incorporated into the draft WSA being submitted for public comment. The NRC is seeking comments on Volumes 1 through 3 of the draft WSA VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:22 Feb 02, 2011 Jkt 223001 from the public, licensees, certificate holders, and other stakeholders. The NRC staff also intends to hold a public meeting on the draft WSA in conjunction with other discussions on the proposed rule and the supporting draft guidance documents. The public meeting is intended to answer questions on the draft WSA and facilitate commenters’ submission of written comments. The NRC does not intend to receive oral comments on the draft WSA. The NRC will publish a separate notice on the date and location of this public meeting in the Federal Register. Dated at Rockville, Maryland this 12th day of January 2011. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Richard P. Correia, Director, Division of Security Policy, Office of Nuclear Security and Incident Response.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 The Federal Aviation Administration proposes to amend design requirements in the airworthiness standards for transport category airplanes to minimize the occurrence of design-related flightcrew errors. The new design requirements would enable a flightcrew to detect and manage their errors when the errors occur. Adopting this proposal would eliminate regulatory differences between the airworthiness standards of the United States (U.S.) and those of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) without affecting current industry design practices.
