SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Section 123 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, sets the specific terms and conditions that must be included in the agreements concluded between the United States and a foreign government to establish the framework for peaceful nuclear cooperation and trade between the countries. The United States has entered into over twenty such agreements that are active at this time, including agreements with the European Atomic Energy Community and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). The United States entered into a Section 123 agreement with Australia in 1979. In 2010, the United States and Australia negotiated a new agreement. While it is very similar to the agreement signed in 1979, the 2010 Agreement clarifies restrictions on the use of Australian-obligated nuclear material in the United States by adding a definition of ‘‘military purpose.’’ The 2010 Agreement retains Article 9(4) of the 1979 agreement, which states in relevant part that the U.S. must ‘‘establish and maintain a system of accounting for and control of all material transferred pursuant to this Agreement and any material used in or produced through the use of any material, equipment or components so transferred.’’ Discussion As discussed in this document, the NRC finds that in order to implement provisions in Article 8 (‘‘No explosive PO 00000 Frm 00038 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 or military application’’) of the 2010 Agreement, NRC regulations in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Part 40 need to be amended. Article 8(1) states, in relevant part, that Australian-obligated nuclear material ‘‘shall not be used for any nuclear explosive device, for research on or development of any nuclear explosive device, including but not limited to, the production of tritium for use in such a device, or for any military purpose.’’ Article 8(2) states that the term ‘‘military purpose’’ includes ‘‘military nuclear propulsion; munitions, including depleted uranium munitions; and other direct military non-nuclear applications as mutually determined by the Parties.’’ The term ‘‘military purpose’’ does not include ‘‘the supply of electricity to a military base from any power network, the production of radioisotopes to be used for medical purposes in military hospitals, and such other similar purposes as may be mutually determined by the Parties.’’ The Agreement defines ‘‘material’’ as including source material, and broadly defines ‘‘source material’’ as including uranium ores ‘‘in such concentration as mutually determined by the Parties from time to time.’’ The term ‘‘Australianobligated source material’’ is used in this rulemaking to designate the material covered by the rule, and such material is that which originates in Australia and is imported from there to the United States. The term ‘‘Australianobligated source material’’ should be understood as describing a subset of the material referenced in the existing definition of Foreign obligations set forth in § 40.4. The term Foreign obligations is used in the existing § 40.64 reporting requirements, under which licensees holding one kilogram or more of source material with foreign obligations must document such holdings on a yearly basis and submit annual inventory reports to the NRC. In accordance with § 40.64(e), licensees subject to 10 CFR part 75 (which implements requirements established by treaties between the United States and the IAEA) instead submit their inventory reports under §§ 75.34 and 75.35. These 10 CFR part 40 and part 75 reporting requirements are not referenced in the 2010 Agreement, and are not affected by this rulemaking. If the Australian Government later has questions concerning inventories of Australian-obligated source material in quantities less than one kilogram, the NRC would request such information from its licensees, who are already required by § 40.61 to keep records E:\FR\FM\08NOR1.SGM 08NOR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Need for Correcting Amendment

    In the final rule Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands 
Transitional Worker Classification, published in the Federal Register 
on September 7, 2011 at 76 FR 55502, DHS intended to revise only the 
heading of paragraph (b)(1)(i)(J) of Sec.  103.7, which pertains to 
various U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services fees. The heading of 
that paragraph was revised from ``Petition for Nonimmigrant Worker in 
CNMI (Form I-129CW)'' to ``Petition for a CNMI-Only Nonimmigrant 
Transitional Worker (Form I-129CW).'' We did not intend to alter the 
specific amount of the fee, contained in the text of the paragraph. 
However, in that final rule, paragraph (b)(1)(i)(J) of Sec.  103.7 was 
inadvertently revised in its entirety, eliminating all text except for 
the heading. This document corrects the error by restoring the original 
text of the paragraph.
