FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: I. Background NRC materials license SUA–1597, License Condition 9.5, requires Uranerz to submit to NRC for review and approval an annual update of the financial surety to cover third-party costs for decommissioning and decontamination, pursuant to 10 CFR 40, Appendix A, Criterion 9, for the Nichols Ranch ISR project located in Johnson and Campbell Counties, Wyoming. By letter dated December 20, 2012, Uranerz submitted to the NRC its Nichols Ranch annual surety update for 2012–2013 (ADAMS Accession No ML13004A100). NRC staff reviewed the annual financial surety update and found the surety reclamation bond value reasonable for the required reclamation activities (See ADAMS Accession No ML13227A378). The Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (WDEQ) holds the reclamation bond but does not have a standby trust agreement (STA) in place, as required by 10 CFR 40, Appendix A, Criterion 9. II. Description of Action As of December 17, 2012, surety instruments for NRC uranium milling licensees regulated under 10 CFR 40, Appendix A, Criterion 9, are required to have a STA in place, pursuant to Criterion 9, which states, ‘‘[I]f a trust is not used, then a standby trust fund must be set up to receive funds in the event the Commission or State regulatory agency exercises its right to collect the surety.’’ The purpose of an STA is to provide a separate account to hold decommissioning funds in the event of a default. Since an STA is not established, the NRC has to either require an STA or grant an exemption to the requirements of the regulation. The NRC has the discretion, under 10 CFR 40.14(a), to grant such exemptions from the requirements of a regulation in 10 CFR 40, if it determines the exemption is authorized by law and will not endanger life or property or the common defense and security and is otherwise in the public interest. The NRC staff has reviewed WDEQ financial assurance requirements. Wyoming law requires that a separate account be set up to receive forfeited decommissioning funds, but does not specifically require an STA. Section 35– 11–424 of the Code of Wyoming states, ‘‘(a) All forfeitures collected under the PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 6935 provisions of this act shall be deposited with the State treasurer in a separate account for reclamation purposes.’’ WDEQ holds permit bonds in a fiduciary fund called an agency fund. If a bond is forfeited, the forfeited funds are moved to a special revenue account. Although the special revenue account is not an STA, the special revenue account serves a similar purpose in that forfeited funds are not deposited into the State treasury for general fund use, but instead are set aside in the special revenue account to be used exclusively for reclamation [decommissioning] purposes. NRC has elected to grant an exemption to the STA requirements in 10 CFR 40, Appendix A, Criterion 9, for the current surety arrangement and for this surety cycle to allow time for further discussion with WDEQ. The NRC staff will further explore the financial assurance standby trust requirements in the NRC regulations and the financial assurance requirements in Wyoming regulations to determine if the State of Wyoming separate account provision is equivalent to NRC’s requirement for a STA. III. Discussion A. The Exemption is Authorized by Law The NRC staff concluded that 10 CFR 40.14(a) allows for an exemption to the requirements of the regulation in 10 CFR 40, Appendix A, Criterion 9. B. The Exemption Presents no Undue Risk to Public Health and Safety The exemption is related to the financial surety. The regulations in 10 CFR 40, Appendix A, Criterion 9(d), allows for the surety arrangements to be held by the State. NRC has determined that while the WDEQ does not require an STA, the special revenue account serves a similar purpose in that forfeited funds are not deposited into the State treasury for general fund use, but instead are set aside in the special revenue account to be used exclusively for reclamation [decommissioning] purposes. Therefore, the exemption presents no undue risk to public health and safety. C. The Exemption is Consistent With the Common Defense and Security The exemption does not involve the common defense or security. Therefore, granting the exemption will have no effect on the common defense and security. D. Environmental Considerations The NRC staff has determined that granting of an exemption from the requirements of 10 CFR 40.14(a) belongs E:\FR\FM\05FEN1.SGM 05FEN1
