General MC&A reporting and recordkeeping requirements in subpart B apply to all licensees authorized to hold SNM under 10 CFR part 70. Licensees authorized to hold SNM of ‘‘low strategic significance’’ (defined in 10 CFR 74.4) are subject to the more rigorous MC&A requirements in subpart C. Such licensees operate what are known as Category III facilities, which include all uranium enrichment facilities and the fuel fabrication facilities supplying fresh fuel assemblies to commercial power reactors. Licensees authorized to hold SNM of ‘‘moderate strategic significance’’ (defined in 10 CFR 74.4) are subject to the MC&A requirements in subpart D, and are authorized to operate Category II facilities (no such facilities now operate). The most rigorous MC&A requirements are in subpart E, and apply to licensees authorized to hold a ‘‘formula quantity’’ (defined in 10 CFR 74.4) of strategic SNM. Such licensees E:\FR\FM\16MYP1.SGM 16MYP1
