SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FMRI (or Licensee) is the holder of the NRC License No. SMB–911 (License) issued by the NRC pursuant to 10 CFR Part 40. The License authorizes FMRI to possess natural uranium and thorium and to conduct remediation of the FMRI site, 10 Tantalum Place, Muskogee, Oklahoma. The License was issued on January 27, 1967, expired on September 2, 2002, was most recently amended on October 2, 2012, and remains in effect. III. On June 21, 2011, FMRI and its parent company, Fansteel, requested authority for an indirect change of control of FMRI from Fansteel to Green Lantern Acquisitions 1, LLC (GLA–1). On October 2, 2012, the NRC issued Amendment 14 to License No. SMB–911 authorizing the change of control to GLA–1 and modifying certain activity schedules and reporting dates to reflect GLA–1 plans for site remediation activities. IV. By email dated March 22, 2013 (ML13231A122), Fansteel and FMRI informed the NRC that: (1) The planned sale agreement with GLA–1 did not occur, (2) other changes related to the transfer will not occur; and (3) FMRI will pursue the possibility of resuming remediation on its own. Therefore, FMRI’s current license does not accurately reflect ownership of and activities at the site. PO 00000 Frm 00080 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 73895 V. Accordingly, pursuant to Sections 81 and 161b of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, and the Commission’s regulations in 10 CFR 2.202 and 10 CFR Part 40, it is hereby ordered that License No. SMB–911 is modified as follows: A. Amendment 14, which changed license conditions 1, 3, 10, 26, 29, 37, 50, 51, and 54, is null and void. This modification shall take effect twenty (20) days from the date of this order. The Director, Office of Federal and State Materials and Environmental Management Programs, may, in writing, relax or rescind any of the above conditions upon demonstration by the Licensee of good cause. VI. In accordance with 10 CFR 2.202, FMRI must, and any other person adversely affected by this Order may, submit an answer to this Order within 20 days of its publication in the Federal Register. In addition, FMRI and any other person adversely affected by this Order may request a hearing on this Order within 20 days of its publication in the Federal Register. Where good cause is shown, consideration will be given to extending the time to answer or request a hearing. A request for extension of time must be made, in writing, to the Director, Office of Federal and State Materials and Environmental Management Programs, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555–0001, and include a statement of good cause for the extension. The answer may consent to this Order. If the answer includes a request for a hearing, it shall, under oath or affirmation, specifically set forth the matters of fact and law on which FMRI relies and the reasons that the Order should not have been issued. If a person other than FMRI requests a hearing, that person shall set forth with particularity the manner in which his/her interest is adversely affected by this Order and shall address the criteria set forth in 10 CFR 2.309(d) and (f). All documents filed in NRC adjudicatory proceedings, including a request for hearing, a petition for leave to intervene, any motion or other document filed in the proceeding prior to the submission of a request for hearing or petition to intervene, and documents filed by interested governmental entities participating under 10 CFR 2.315(c), must be filed in accordance with the NRC E-Filing rule (72 FR 49139; August 28, 2007). The EFiling process requires participants to E:\FR\FM\09DEN1.SGM 09DEN1 maindgalligan on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 73896 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 236 / Monday, December 9, 2013 / Notices submit and serve all adjudicatory documents over the internet, or in some cases to mail copies on electronic storage media. Participants may not submit paper copies of their filings unless they seek an exemption in accordance with the procedures described below. To comply with the procedural requirements of E-Filing, at least 10 days prior to the filing deadline, the participant should contact the Office of the Secretary by email at hearing.docket@nrc.gov, or by telephone at 301–415–1677, to request (1) a digital identification (ID) certificate, which allows the participant (or its counsel or representative) to digitally sign documents and access the E-Submittal server for any proceeding in which it is participating; and (2) advise the Secretary that the participant will be submitting a request or petition for hearing (even in instances in which the participant, or its counsel or representative, already holds an NRCissued digital ID certificate). Based upon this information, the Secretary will establish an electronic docket for the hearing in this proceeding if the Secretary has not already established an electronic docket. Information about applying for a digital ID certificate is available on NRC’s public Web site at http:// www.nrc.gov/site-help/e-submittals/ apply-certificates.html. System requirements for accessing the E-Submittal server are detailed in the NRC’s ‘‘Guidance for Electronic Submission,’’ which is available on the agency’s public Web site at http:// www.nrc.gov/site-help/ e-submittals.html. Participants may attempt to use other software not listed on the Web site, but should note that the NRC’s E-Filing system does not support unlisted software, and the NRC Meta System Help Desk will not be able to offer assistance in using unlisted software. If a participant is electronically submitting a document to the NRC in accordance with the E-Filing rule, the participant must file the document using the NRC’s online, Web-based submission form. In order to serve documents through the Electronic Information Exchange System, users will be required to install a Web browser plug-in from the NRC’s Web site. Further information on the Webbased submission form, including the installation of the Web browser plug-in, is available on the NRC’s public Web site at http://www.nrc.gov/site-help/ e-submittals.html. Once a participant has obtained a digital ID certificate and a docket has VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:03 Dec 06, 2013 Jkt 232001 been created, the participant can then submit a request for hearing or petition for leave to intervene. Submissions should be in Portable Document Format (PDF) in accordance with the NRC guidance available on the NRC’s public Web site at http://www.nrc.gov/sitehelp/e-submittals.html. A filing is considered complete at the time the documents are submitted through the NRC’s E-Filing system. To be timely, an electronic filing must be submitted to the E-Filing system no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on the due date. Upon receipt of a transmission, the E-Filing system time-stamps the document and sends the submitter an email notice confirming receipt of the document. The E-Filing system also distributes an email notice that provides access to the document to the NRC’s Office of the General Counsel and any others who have advised the Office of the Secretary that they wish to participate in the proceeding, so that the filer need not serve the documents on those participants separately. Therefore, applicants and other participants (or their counsel or representative) must apply for and receive a digital ID certificate before a hearing request/ petition to intervene is filed so that they can obtain access to the document via the E-Filing system. A person filing electronically using the agency’s adjudicatory E-Filing system may seek assistance by contacting the NRC Meta System Help Desk through the ‘‘Contact Us’’ link located on the NRC’s Web site at http:// www.nrc.gov/site-help/ e-submittals.html, by email to MSHD.Resource@nrc.gov, or by a tollfree call at 1–866–672–7640. The NRC Meta System Help Desk is available between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., Eastern Time, Monday through Friday, excluding government holidays. Participants who believe that they have a good cause for not submitting documents electronically must file an exemption request, in accordance with 10 CFR 2.302(g), with their initial paper filing requesting authorization to continue to submit documents in paper format. Such filings must be submitted by: (1) First class mail addressed to the Office of the Secretary of the Commission, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555– 0001, Attention: Rulemaking and Adjudications Staff; or (2) courier, express mail, or expedited delivery service to the Office of the Secretary of the Commission, Sixteenth Floor, One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland 20852, Attention: Rulemaking and Adjudications Staff. Participants filing a PO 00000 Frm 00081 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 document in this manner are responsible for serving the document on all other participants. Filing is considered complete by first-class mail as of the time of deposit in the mail, or by courier, express mail, or expedited delivery service upon depositing the document with the provider of the service. A presiding officer, having granted an exemption request from using E-Filing, may require a participant or party to use E-Filing if the presiding officer subsequently determines that the reason for granting the exemption from use of E-Filing no longer exists. Documents submitted in adjudicatory proceedings will appear in the NRC’s electronic hearing docket which is available to the public at http:// ehd1.nrc.gov/ehd/, unless excluded pursuant to an order of the Commission, or the presiding officer. Participants are requested not to include personal privacy information, such as social security numbers, home addresses, or home phone numbers in their filings, unless an NRC regulation or other law requires submission of such information. With respect to copyrighted works, except for limited excerpts that serve the purpose of the adjudicatory filings and would constitute a Fair Use application, participants are requested not to include copyrighted materials in their submission. If a hearing is requested by FMRI or a person whose interest is adversely affected, the Commission will issue an Order designating the time and place of any hearing. If a hearing is held, the issue to be considered at such hearing shall be whether this Order should be sustained. Pursuant to 10 CFR 2.202(c)(2)(i), FMRI may, in addition to requesting a hearing, at the time the answer is filed or sooner, move the presiding officer to set aside the immediate effectiveness of the Order on the grounds that the Order, including the need for immediate effectiveness, is not based on adequate evidence, but on mere suspicion, unfounded allegations, or error. In the absence of any request for hearing, or written approval of an extension of time in which to request a hearing, the provisions of this Order, as specified in Section III shall be final 20 days from the date this Order is published in the Federal Register, without further Order or proceedings. If an extension of time for requesting a hearing has been approved, the provisions of this Order, as specified in Section III, shall be final when the extension expires, if a hearing request has not been received. A request for E:\FR\FM\09DEN1.SGM 09DEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 236 / Monday, December 9, 2013 / Notices hearing shall not stay the immediate effectiveness of this order.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: By letter dated May 31, 2013 (SMT–2013–023, ADAMS Accession No.), SHINE submitted the second and final part of its two-part application for a construction permit. By letter dated September 25, 2013 (ADAMS Accession No. ML13269A378), SHINE supplemented this submission with a discussion of preliminary plans for coping with emergencies, as required by section 50.34(a)(10) of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), completing its application for a construction permit. An exemption from certain requirements of 10 CFR 2.101(a)(5) granted by the Commission on March 20, 2013 (ADAMS Accession No. ML13072B195), in response to a letter from SHINE dated February 18, 2013 (ADAMS Accession No. ML13051A007), allowed SHINE to submit its construction permit application in two parts. Specifically, the exemption allowed SHINE to submit a portion of its application for a construction permit up to six months prior to the remainder of the application regardless of whether or not an environmental impact statement or a supplement to an environmental impact statement is prepared during the review of its application. If granted, the construction permit would allow SHINE to construct a medical radioisotope production facility in Janesville, Wisconsin. Part one of SHINE’s construction permit application was submitted by letter dated March 26, 2013 (ADAMS Accession No. ML13088A192). In accordance with 10 CFR 2.101(a)(5), this partial application submittal contained the following: • The description and safety assessment of the site required by 10 CFR 50.34(a)(1) • The environmental report required by 10 CFR 50.30(f) • The filing fee information required by 10 CFR 50.30(e) and 10 CFR 170.21 • The general information required by 10 CFR 50.33 • The agreement limiting access to classified information required by 10 CFR 50.37 The NRC staff acknowledged receipt of this partial application for a construction permit under 10 CFR part 50, ‘‘Domestic Licensing of Production PO 00000 Frm 00082 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 73897 and Utilization Facilities,’’ in the Federal Register (78 FR 29390) on May 20, 2013. On June 25, 2013, NRC staff determined that part one of SHINE’s application for a construction permit was complete and acceptable for docketing (ADAMS Accession No. ML13150A280), assigning the application Docket No. 50–608. The NRC staff has now completed its acceptance review of part two of SHINE’s application for a construction permit and determined that this second and final portion of SHINE’s two-part construction permit application, as supplemented, contains the remainder of the preliminary safety analysis report required by 10 CFR 50.34(a) and was submitted in accordance with the requirements of 10 CFR 2.101(a)(5). Therefore, the application is complete and acceptable for docketing. SHINE’s construction permit application, in its entirety, has been placed under Docket No. 50–608. Please reference this docket number in all future correspondence concerning the review of the SHINE construction permit application. The NRC staff is now prepared to begin a detailed technical review of the SHINE construction permit application. In the coming weeks, a review schedule will be published that identifies significant milestones and an expected review completion date. Docketing of the application does not preclude the NRC from requesting additional information from the applicant as the review proceeds, nor does it predict whether the Commission will grant or deny the requested construction permit. In support of the review of the SHINE construction permit application, a hearing will be conducted by the Commission or a Board designated by the Chief of the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board Panel in accordance with procedures in 10 CFR Part 2, ‘‘Agency Rules of Practice and Procedure.’’ A copy of the construction permit application will be referred to the Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards for a review and report consistent with 10 CFR 50.58, ‘‘Hearings and report of the Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards.’’ A future Federal Register notice will announce the opportunity to petition for leave to intervene in the hearing required for the application by 10 CFR 50.58 as well as the time and place of the hearing. Additionally, in accordance with 10 CFR Part 51, ‘‘Environmental Protection Regulations for Domestic Licensing and Related Regulatory Functions,’’ the Commission will also prepare an environmental impact statement for the proposed action.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I.

    Pursuant to Section 2.106 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal 
Regulations (10 CFR), the NRC is providing notice in the matter of FMRI 
Order Modifying License

II.

    FMRI (or Licensee) is the holder of the NRC License No. SMB-911 
(License) issued by the NRC pursuant to 10 CFR Part 40. The License 
authorizes FMRI to possess natural uranium and thorium and to conduct 
remediation of the FMRI site, 10 Tantalum Place, Muskogee, Oklahoma. 
The License was issued on January 27, 1967, expired on September 2, 
2002, was most recently amended on October 2, 2012, and remains in 
effect.

III.

    On June 21, 2011, FMRI and its parent company, Fansteel, requested 
authority for an indirect change of control of FMRI from Fansteel to 
Green Lantern Acquisitions 1, LLC (GLA-1). On October 2, 2012, the NRC 
issued Amendment 14 to License No. SMB-911 authorizing the change of 
control to GLA-1 and modifying certain activity schedules and reporting 
dates to reflect GLA-1 plans for site remediation activities.

IV.

    By email dated March 22, 2013 (ML13231A122), Fansteel and FMRI 
informed the NRC that: (1) The planned sale agreement with GLA-1 did 
not occur, (2) other changes related to the transfer will not occur; 
and (3) FMRI will pursue the possibility of resuming remediation on its 
own. Therefore, FMRI's current license does not accurately reflect 
ownership of and activities at the site.

V.

    Accordingly, pursuant to Sections 81 and 161b of the Atomic Energy 
Act of 1954, as amended, and the Commission's regulations in 10 CFR 
2.202 and 10 CFR Part 40, it is hereby ordered that License No. SMB-911 
is modified as follows:
    A. Amendment 14, which changed license conditions 1, 3, 10, 26, 29, 
37, 50, 51, and 54, is null and void. This modification shall take 
effect twenty (20) days from the date of this order.
    The Director, Office of Federal and State Materials and 
Environmental Management Programs, may, in writing, relax or rescind 
any of the above conditions upon demonstration by the Licensee of good 
cause.

VI.

    In accordance with 10 CFR 2.202, FMRI must, and any other person 
adversely affected by this Order may, submit an answer to this Order 
within 20 days of its publication in the Federal Register. In addition, 
FMRI and any other person adversely affected by this Order may request 
a hearing on this Order within 20 days of its publication in the 
Federal Register. Where good cause is shown, consideration will be 
given to extending the time to answer or request a hearing. A request 
for extension of time must be made, in writing, to the Director, Office 
of Federal and State Materials and Environmental Management Programs, 
U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555-0001, and 
include a statement of good cause for the extension.
    The answer may consent to this Order. If the answer includes a 
request for a hearing, it shall, under oath or affirmation, 
specifically set forth the matters of fact and law on which FMRI relies 
and the reasons that the Order should not have been issued. If a person 
other than FMRI requests a hearing, that person shall set forth with 
particularity the manner in which his/her interest is adversely 
affected by this Order and shall address the criteria set forth in 10 
CFR 2.309(d) and (f).
    All documents filed in NRC adjudicatory proceedings, including a 
request for hearing, a petition for leave to intervene, any motion or 
other document filed in the proceeding prior to the submission of a 
request for hearing or petition to intervene, and documents filed by 
interested governmental entities participating under 10 CFR 2.315(c), 
must be filed in accordance with the NRC E-Filing rule (72 FR 49139; 
August 28, 2007). The E-Filing process requires participants to

[[Page 73896]]

submit and serve all adjudicatory documents over the internet, or in 
some cases to mail copies on electronic storage media. Participants may 
not submit paper copies of their filings unless they seek an exemption 
in accordance with the procedures described below.
    To comply with the procedural requirements of E-Filing, at least 10 
days prior to the filing deadline, the participant should contact the 
Office of the Secretary by email at hearing.docket@nrc.gov, or by 
telephone at 301-415-1677, to request (1) a digital identification (ID) 
certificate, which allows the participant (or its counsel or 
representative) to digitally sign documents and access the E-Submittal 
server for any proceeding in which it is participating; and (2) advise 
the Secretary that the participant will be submitting a request or 
petition for hearing (even in instances in which the participant, or 
its counsel or representative, already holds an NRC-issued digital ID 
certificate). Based upon this information, the Secretary will establish 
an electronic docket for the hearing in this proceeding if the 
Secretary has not already established an electronic docket.
    Information about applying for a digital ID certificate is 
available on NRC's public Web site at http://www.nrc.gov/site-help/e-submittals/apply-certificates.html. System requirements for accessing 
the E-Submittal server are detailed in the NRC's ``Guidance for 
Electronic Submission,'' which is available on the agency's public Web 
site at http://www.nrc.gov/site-help/e-submittals.html. Participants 
may attempt to use other software not listed on the Web site, but 
should note that the NRC's E-Filing system does not support unlisted 
software, and the NRC Meta System Help Desk will not be able to offer 
assistance in using unlisted software.
    If a participant is electronically submitting a document to the NRC 
in accordance with the E-Filing rule, the participant must file the 
document using the NRC's online, Web-based submission form. In order to 
serve documents through the Electronic Information Exchange System, 
users will be required to install a Web browser plug-in from the NRC's 
Web site. Further information on the Web-based submission form, 
including the installation of the Web browser plug-in, is available on 
the NRC's public Web site at http://www.nrc.gov/site-help/e-submittals.html.
    Once a participant has obtained a digital ID certificate and a 
docket has been created, the participant can then submit a request for 
hearing or petition for leave to intervene. Submissions should be in 
Portable Document Format (PDF) in accordance with the NRC guidance 
available on the NRC's public Web site at http://www.nrc.gov/site-help/e-submittals.html. A filing is considered complete at the time the 
documents are submitted through the NRC's E-Filing system. To be 
timely, an electronic filing must be submitted to the E-Filing system 
no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on the due date. Upon receipt of 
a transmission, the E-Filing system time-stamps the document and sends 
the submitter an email notice confirming receipt of the document. The 
E-Filing system also distributes an email notice that provides access 
to the document to the NRC's Office of the General Counsel and any 
others who have advised the Office of the Secretary that they wish to 
participate in the proceeding, so that the filer need not serve the 
documents on those participants separately. Therefore, applicants and 
other participants (or their counsel or representative) must apply for 
and receive a digital ID certificate before a hearing request/petition 
to intervene is filed so that they can obtain access to the document 
via the E-Filing system.
    A person filing electronically using the agency's adjudicatory E-
Filing system may seek assistance by contacting the NRC Meta System 
Help Desk through the ``Contact Us'' link located on the NRC's Web site 
at http://www.nrc.gov/site-help/e-submittals.html, by email to 
MSHD.Resource@nrc.gov, or by a toll-free call at 1-866-672-7640. The 
NRC Meta System Help Desk is available between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., 
Eastern Time, Monday through Friday, excluding government holidays.
    Participants who believe that they have a good cause for not 
submitting documents electronically must file an exemption request, in 
accordance with 10 CFR 2.302(g), with their initial paper filing 
requesting authorization to continue to submit documents in paper 
format. Such filings must be submitted by: (1) First class mail 
addressed to the Office of the Secretary of the Commission, U.S. 
Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555-0001, Attention: 
Rulemaking and Adjudications Staff; or (2) courier, express mail, or 
expedited delivery service to the Office of the Secretary of the 
Commission, Sixteenth Floor, One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville 
Pike, Rockville, Maryland 20852, Attention: Rulemaking and 
Adjudications Staff. Participants filing a document in this manner are 
responsible for serving the document on all other participants. Filing 
is considered complete by first-class mail as of the time of deposit in 
the mail, or by courier, express mail, or expedited delivery service 
upon depositing the document with the provider of the service. A 
presiding officer, having granted an exemption request from using E-
Filing, may require a participant or party to use E-Filing if the 
presiding officer subsequently determines that the reason for granting 
the exemption from use of E-Filing no longer exists.
    Documents submitted in adjudicatory proceedings will appear in the 
NRC's electronic hearing docket which is available to the public at 
http://ehd1.nrc.gov/ehd/, unless excluded pursuant to an order of the 
Commission, or the presiding officer. Participants are requested not to 
include personal privacy information, such as social security numbers, 
home addresses, or home phone numbers in their filings, unless an NRC 
regulation or other law requires submission of such information. With 
respect to copyrighted works, except for limited excerpts that serve 
the purpose of the adjudicatory filings and would constitute a Fair Use 
application, participants are requested not to include copyrighted 
materials in their submission.
    If a hearing is requested by FMRI or a person whose interest is 
adversely affected, the Commission will issue an Order designating the 
time and place of any hearing. If a hearing is held, the issue to be 
considered at such hearing shall be whether this Order should be 
sustained.
    Pursuant to 10 CFR 2.202(c)(2)(i), FMRI may, in addition to 
requesting a hearing, at the time the answer is filed or sooner, move 
the presiding officer to set aside the immediate effectiveness of the 
Order on the grounds that the Order, including the need for immediate 
effectiveness, is not based on adequate evidence, but on mere 
suspicion, unfounded allegations, or error.
    In the absence of any request for hearing, or written approval of 
an extension of time in which to request a hearing, the provisions of 
this Order, as specified in Section III shall be final 20 days from the 
date this Order is published in the Federal Register, without further 
Order or proceedings. If an extension of time for requesting a hearing 
has been approved, the provisions of this Order, as specified in 
Section III, shall be final when the extension expires, if a hearing 
request has not been received. A request for

hearing shall not stay the immediate effectiveness of this order.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 27th day of November 2013.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Brian E. Holian,
Acting Director, Office of Federal and State Materials and 
Environmental Management Programs.
