ACTION: Notice of permanent cessation of uranium enrichment activities and suspension of staff review. AGENCY: On April 2, 2013, the United States Enrichment Corporation (USEC) filed an application with the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) for the renewal of its Certificate of Compliance (CoC) for the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant (PGDP). The current CoC for PGDP is set to expire on December 31, 2013. The NRC staff found USEC’s renewal application acceptable for docketing and published a notice in the Federal Register acknowledging the receipt of the application and providing an opportunity for public comment. On June 3, 2013, USEC notified the NRC of its decision to permanently cease uranium enrichment activities at the PGDP. USEC stated that in 2014, it will return the PGDP facilities to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), and that it would request termination of its CoC in 2014. For these reasons, the NRC staff hereby gives notice that its review of SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00126 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 65389 USEC’s pending renewal application has been suspended. Because the April 2, 2013, application was filed in the required timeframe, in accordance with the NRC’s timely renewal regulations, the existing CoC will remain effective until there is a final NRC determination on the renewal application.
