ACTION: Public meeting. AGENCY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or the Commission) will participate in a public and closed meeting with affected stakeholders to discuss comments relevant to the staff’s draft regulatory basis (previously referred to as the draft technical basis) for the forthcoming security rulemaking, ‘‘Security Requirements for Radiological Sabotage,’’ to revise the security requirements for facilities storing spent nuclear fuel (SNF) and high-level radioactive waste (HLW). This meeting is a follow-up to the NRC’s notice of availability of the draft technical basis and solicitation of public comments (74 FR 66589; December 16, 2009) to confirm that an adequate regulatory basis exists to proceed with rulemaking to issue new risk-informed and performance-based security regulations for SNF and HLW storage facilities. This portion of the meeting is open to the public and all interested parties may attend. The NRC is also presenting information on independent spent fuel storage installation (ISFSI) vulnerability studies and information on proposed new regulatory guide, Draft Guide-5033, ‘‘Security Performance (Adversary) Characteristics for Physical Security Programs for 10 CFR [Title 10 of the SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\27APP1.SGM 27APP1 23514 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 81 / Wednesday, April 27, 2011 / Proposed Rules Code of Federal Regulations] PART 72 Licensees.’’ This portion of the meeting will be closed under Exemptions 3.b of the Commission’s policy statement,1 due to the expected discussion of safeguards information.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The forthcoming rulemaking would revise 10 CFR part 72, ‘‘Licensing Requirements for the Independent Storage of Spent Nuclear Fuel, HighLevel Radioactive Waste, and ReactorRelated Greater Than Class C Waste,’’ and 10 CFR part 73, ‘‘Physical Protection of Plants and Materials,’’ that would apply during the storage of SNF at an ISFSI and the storage of SNF and HLW at a monitored retrievable storage installation. The NRC requires high assurance of adequate protection of public health and safety, the common defense and security, and the environment for the secure storage of SNF and HLW. The NRC meets this strategic goal by requiring ISFSI licensees to comply with security requirements specified in 10 CFR part 73. Following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the NRC has continued to achieve this requisite high assurance for all facilities licensed to store SNF through a combination of these existing security regulations and the issuance of security orders to individual licensees. Based on the Commission’s direction presented in SRM–SECY–10–0114 (Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML103210025) and the comments received in response to the Federal Register notice published on December 16, 2009 (74 FR 66589; ADAMS Accession No. ML093340103), the staff is hosting this meeting to discuss our understanding of the comments received. The NRC notes that the public, licensees, certificate holders, and other stakeholders will have a future opportunity to comment on the proposed rulemaking when that document is published in the Federal Register.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The forthcoming rulemaking would revise 10 CFR part 72, ``Licensing 
Requirements for the Independent Storage of Spent Nuclear Fuel, High-
Level Radioactive Waste, and Reactor-Related Greater Than Class C 
Waste,'' and 10 CFR part 73, ``Physical Protection of Plants and 
Materials,'' that would apply during the storage of SNF at an ISFSI and 
the storage of SNF and HLW at a monitored retrievable storage 
installation.
    The NRC requires high assurance of adequate protection of public 
health and safety, the common defense and security, and the environment 
for the secure storage of SNF and HLW. The NRC meets this strategic 
goal by requiring ISFSI licensees to comply with security requirements 
specified in 10 CFR part 73. Following the terrorist attacks of 
September 11, 2001, the NRC has continued to achieve this requisite 
high assurance for all facilities licensed to store SNF through a 
combination of these existing security regulations and the issuance of 
security orders to individual licensees.
    Based on the Commission's direction presented in SRM-SECY-10-0114 
(Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession 
No. ML103210025) and the comments received in response to the Federal 
Register notice published on December 16, 2009 (74 FR 66589; ADAMS 
Accession No. ML093340103), the staff is hosting this meeting to 
discuss our understanding of the comments received.
    The NRC notes that the public, licensees, certificate holders, and 
other stakeholders will have a future opportunity to comment on the 
proposed rulemaking when that document is published in the Federal 
Register.
