In selecting individuals to serve on the Committee, the Commission seeks to ensure that the Committee membership as a whole possesses a high level of expertise with respect to scientific disciplines, marine mammal species, and geographic areas of importance to the Commission’s responsibilities. In particular, the Commission requires a high level of knowledge with respect to the biology and ecology of certain marine mammal species that, due to their small population levels and/or threats they face, require special attention. These include, but are not limited to, the West Indian manatee, the right whale and other species of large whales, the vaquita, sea otters, the Cook Inlet stock of beluga whales, the polar bear, and the Hawaiian monk seal. In addition, Committee members are selected to provide broad familiarity with marine mammal species and issues from a range of geographic regions where Commission responsibilities are especially great.

NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION

[Docket No. 50-113; NRC-2009-0549]


Notice of Issuance of License Amendment Regarding Decommission 
Plan Approval; University of Arizona Research Reactor

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has issued the 
approval of the University of Arizona decommissioning plan (DP) by 
amendment to the Facility License R-52 for the University of Arizona 
Research Reactor (UARR). The UARR is located within the University of 
Arizona Nuclear Reactor Laboratory (NRL) on the 325-acre campus of the 
University of Arizona in Pima County, Arizona in the city of Tucson. 
The reactor was licensed for a steady state power of 110 kW (thermal), 
with a pulsing capability up to peak powers of approximately 650 MW. 
The reactor ceased operations on May 18, 2010. The UARR is a TRIGA 
pool-type reactor designed and constructed by General Atomic Division 
of General Dynamics Corporation (now GA Technologies of San Diego, 
California). TRIGA stands for Test, Research, Isotope production, 
General Atomics. The licensee submitted the UARR DP to the NRC in a 
letter dated May 21, 2009, as supplemented on March 26, 2010.
    A document titled, ``Notice and Solicitation of Comments Pursuant 
to Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Section 20.1405 
and 10 CFR 50.82(b)(5) Concerning Proposed Action to Decommission the 
University of Arizona Research Reactor,'' was published in the Federal 
Register on December 14, 2009 (74 FR 66173-66174). No comments were 
received following the notice.

[[Page 23340]]

    The NRC staff prepared a safety evaluation report approving the 
University of Arizona's proposed decommissioning plan. Based on the NRC 
staff's review of the licensee's application for approval of 
decommissioning, the NRC staff finds that the proposed DP meets the 
requirements of 10 CFR 50.82(b)(4).
    For details with respect to the licensee's application, see the 
licensee's letter dated May 21, 2009 (ML100620926, ML091490076), as 
supplemented by letter dated March 26, 2010 (ML100920089). Documents 
may be examined, and/or copied for a fee, at the NRC's Public Document 
Room (PDR), located at One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike 
(first floor), Rockville, Maryland. Publicly available records will be 
accessible electronically from the Agencywide Documents Access and
