Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 128 / Tuesday, July 5, 2011 / Notices Budget (OMB) and solicitation of public comment. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) invites public comment about our intention to request the OMB’s approval for renewal of an existing information collection that is summarized below. We are required to publish this notice in the Federal Register under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). Information pertaining to the requirement to be submitted: 1. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR Part 36—Licenses and Radiation Safety Requirements for Irradiators. 2. Current OMB approval number: 3150–0158. 3. How often the collection is required: Annually. 4. Who is required or asked to report: Irradiator licensees licensed by NRC or an Agreement State. 5. The number of annual respondents: 70 (10 NRC licensees and 60 Agreement State licensees). 6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 32,690. 7. Abstract: 10 CFR Part 36 contains requirements for the issuance of a license authorizing the use of sealed sources containing radioactive materials in irradiators used to irradiate objects or materials for a variety of purposes in research, industry, and other fields. The subparts cover specific requirements for obtaining a license or license exemption, design and performance criteria for irradiators; and radiation safety requirements for operating irradiators, including requirements for operator training, written operating and emergency procedures, personnel monitoring, radiation surveys, inspection, and maintenance. 10 CFR Part 36 also contains the recordkeeping and reporting requirements that are necessary to ensure that the irradiator is being safely operated so that it does not pose any danger to the health and safety of the general public and the irradiator employees.

Nonseismic siting criteria must also be evaluated. Non-seismic siting criteria include such factors as population density, the proximity of man-related hazards, and site atmospheric dispersion characteristics.

NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION [Docket Nos. 50–295 and 50–304; NRC– 2011–0145] ZIONSOLUTIONS, LLC; Zion Nuclear Power Station, Units 1 and 2 Exemption From Recordkeeping Requirements 1.0 Background Zion Nuclear Power Station (ZNPS or Zion), Unit 1, is a Westinghouse 3250 MWt Pressurized Water Reactor which was granted Operating License No. DPR–39 on October 19, 1973, and subsequently shut down on February 21, 1997. Zion, Unit 2, is also a Westinghouse 3250 MWt Pressurized Water Reactor which was granted Operating License No. DPR–48 on November 14, 1973, and was shut down on September 19, 1996. Zion is located in Lake County, Illinois. In February 1998, pursuant to Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) 50.82(a)(1)(i), the licensee certified to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or the Commission) that as of February 13, 1998, operations had ceased at Zion, Units 1 and 2. The licensee later certified, pursuant to 10 CFR 50.82(a)(1)(ii), that all fuel had been removed from the reactor vessel of both units, and committed to maintaining the units in a permanently defueled status. Therefore, pursuant to 10 CFR 50.82(a)(2), operations at Zion are no longer authorized under the 10 CFR part 50 licenses. On September 1, 2010, the facility license was transferred from Exelon to ZionSolutions for the express purpose of expediting the decommissioning of the site. ZionSolutions intends to use a process that will reduce the laborintensive separation of contaminated materials and transport the facility in bulk to the EnergySolutions disposal site in Utah. Preparations for decontamination and dismantlement have begun. Completion of fuel transfer to the independent spent fuel storage installation (ISFSI) is scheduled for 2014. Final site survey and license reduction to the ISFSI is currently planned for 2020. 2.0 BILLING CODE 7590–01–P srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES [FR Doc. 2011–16670 Filed 7–1–11; 8:45 am] By letter dated February 28, 2011, as supplemented on April 5, 2011, ZionSolutions filed a request for NRC approval of an exemption from the record keeping requirements of 10 CFR 50.71(c); 10 CFR part 50, Appendix A Criterion 1; 10 CFR part 50, Appendix B Criterion XVII; and 10 CFR 50.59(d)(3). VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:58 Jul 01, 2011 Jkt 223001 PO 00000 Request/Action Frm 00067 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 ZionSolutions requested a permanent exemption from the record retention requirements of: (1) 10 CFR part 50 Appendix A Criterion 1 which requires certain records be retained ‘‘throughout the life of the unit’’; (2) 10 CFR part 50 Appendix B Criterion XVII, which requires certain records be retained consistent with regulatory requirements for a duration established by the licensee; (3) 10 CFR 50.59(d)(3) which requires certain records be maintained until ‘‘termination of a license issued pursuant to’’ 10 CFR part 50; and (4) 10 CFR 50.71(c) which requires certain records to be maintained consistent with various elements of the NRC regulations, facility technical specifications and other licensing bases documents. The licensee is proposing to eliminate the records when: (1) The licensing basis requirements previously applicable to the nuclear power units and associated systems, structures, and components (SSC) are no longer effective (e.g., removed from the Defueled Safety Analysis Report and/or Technical Specifications by appropriate change mechanisms); or (2) for SSCs associated with safe storage of fuel in the spent fuel pool (SFP), when spent nuclear fuel has been completely transferred from the SFP to dry storage, and the spent fuel building is ready for demolition and the associated licensing bases are no longer effective. The licensee did not request an exemption associated with any record keeping requirements for storage of spent fuel at its future ISFSI under 10 CFR part 50 or the general license requirements of 10 CFR part 72. 3.0 Discussion Pursuant to 10 CFR 50.12, the Commission may, upon application by any interested person or upon its own initiative, grant exemptions from the requirements of 10 CFR part 50 when (1) the exemptions are authorized by law, will not present an undue risk to public health or safety, and are consistent with the common defense and security; and (2) when special circumstances are present. Decommissioning of the ZNPS has begun and the nuclear reactor and essentially all associated SSCs in the nuclear steam supply system and balance of plant that supported the generation of power have been retired in place and are being prepared for removal. The SSCs that remain operable are associated with the SFP and the spent fuel building, needed to meet other regulatory requirements, or needed to support other site facilities (e.g., radwaste handling, heating ventilation and air conditioning, etc).
