Background The purpose of this final rule is to revise the NRC’s export and import regulations in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Part 110, ‘‘Export and Import of Nuclear Equipment and Material,’’ with regard to U.S. Government law and policy on Oman. The Executive Branch recommended, in light of current foreign policy and nonproliferationrelated actions taken and polices pursued by the Government of Oman, that the NRC amend Part 110 to remove Oman from the list of restricted destinations in § 110.29. This means that exports of certain nuclear and byproduct materials to Oman may qualify for the NRC general license specified in §§ 110.21 through 110.24. E:\FR\FM\27FER1.SGM 27FER1
