The NRC has issued a license to the U.S. Army, Installation Management Command for possession of depleted uranium from the Davy Crockett weapon spotting round at the U.S. Army’s Schofield Barracks and Pohakuloa Training Area installations in Hawaii. Materials License SUC–1593 authorizes possession only of existing depleted uranium from the Davy Crockett weapon and does not allow the U.S. Army to use the depleted uranium for other purposes or add to the existing depleted uranium inventory on the installations. The Army will also be required to conduct its operations in accordance with the conditions listed in Materials License SUC–1593. This notice also serves as the record of decision for the NRC’s decision to approve the U.S. Army, Installation Management Command’s license application for the Schofield Barracks and Pohakuloa Training Area and issue Materials License SUC–1593. The NRC considers the entire publicly available record for a license application to constitute the agency’s record of decision. Documents related to the application carry NRC docket ID NRC– 2009–0352. These documents for the U.S. Army, Installation Management Command license include the license application (ML090070095), the Safety Evaluation Report (SER) (ML13259A081), and the license (ML13259A062).

The U.S. Army, Installation Management Command’s request for a materials license was previously noticed in the Federal Register on August 13, 2009 (74 FR 40855), with a notice of an opportunity to request a hearing. On October 26, 2009, NRC staff received both comments on the license application and a request for a hearing. On November 24, 2009, an Atomic Safety and Licensing and Board (ASLBP) was established to preside over the proceeding (74 FR 62830). On January 13, 2010, the ASLBP held oral arguments on standing and contention admissibility in Rockville, Maryland, with the petitioners participating by videoconference from the Hilo Campus of the University of Hawaii on the island of Hawaii. On February 24, 2010, the ASLB denied the request (ML100550704), and the ASLB’s decision was appealed by one of the individuals to the Commission (ML100640665). On August 12, 2010, the Commission affirmed the ALSB’s decision (ML102240165). In accordance with 10 CFR 2.390 of the NRC’s ‘‘Rules of Practice and Procedure,’’ the details with respect to this action, including the SER and accompanying documentation and license, are available electronically at the NRC’s Electronic Reading Room at http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/ adams.html.
