Issuance of this temporary exemption will not remove the requirement for Cameco to provide adequate financial assurance through an approved mechanism, but will allow the NRC staff to further evaluate whether the State of Wyoming’s separate account provision for financial assurance instruments it holds is consistent with the NRC’s requirement for a standby trust agreement.

I. Background NRC materials license SUA–1548, License Condition 9.5, requires Cameco to submit to the 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 Part 40, Appendix A, Criterion 9, for the Smith Ranch Highland ISR project and its related satellite facilities at Gas Hills, North Butte, and Ruth. Smith Ranch Highland is located in Converse County, Wyoming and its related satellite facilities are located in Natrona and Fremont; Campbell; and Johnson Counties, Wyoming, respectively. By letters dated July 30 and August 5, 2013, Cameco submitted to the NRC its Smith Ranch annual surety update for 2013– 2014 (ADAMS Accession No. ML13225A115) and its Gas Hills annual surety update (ADAMS Accession No. ML13225A012). The NRC’s staff reviewed the annual financial surety updates and found the values reasonable for the required reclamation activities (ADAMS Accession No. ML14016A054). Cameco maintains approved financial assurance instruments in favor of the State of Wyoming; however, it does not have a standby trust agreement (STA) in place, as required by 10 CFR Part 40, Appendix A, Criterion 9. II. Description of Action As of December 17, 2012, the NRC’s uranium milling licensees, which are regulated under 10 CFR Part 40, Appendix A, Criterion 9, are required to have an STA in place. Criterion 9 provides that if a licensee does not use a trust as its financial assurance mechanism, then the licensee is required to establish a standby trust fund to receive funds in the event the Commission or State regulatory agency exercises its right to collect the funds provided for by surety or letter of credit. The purpose of an STA is to provide a PO 00000 Frm 00090 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 22707 separate account to hold decommissioning funds in the event of a default. Cameco has not established an STA, nor has it requested an exemption from the requirement to do so. However, the NRC has the discretion, under 10 CFR 40.14(a), to grant an exemption from the requirements of a regulation in 10 CFR Part 40 on its own initiative, if the NRC 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. 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(a) of the Code of Wyoming states that ‘‘[a]ll forfeitures collected under the provisions of this act shall be deposited with the State treasurer in a separate account for reclamation purposes.’’ Under Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (WDEQ) financial assurance requirements, 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 Cameco an exemption to the STA requirements in 10 CFR Part 40, Appendix A, Criterion 9, for the current surety arrangement until the 2015 review cycle to allow the NRC to evaluate whether the financial assurance standby trust requirements in the NRC regulations and the financial assurance requirements in Wyoming regulations are comparable. III. Discussion A. The Exemption Is Authorized by Law The NRC staff concluded that the proposed exemption is authorized by law as 10 CFR 40.14(a) expressly allows for an exemption to the requirements of the regulation in 10 CFR Part 40, Appendix A, Criterion 9, and the proposed exemption would not be contrary to any provision of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended. B. The Exemption Presents No Undue Risk to Public Health and Safety The exemption is related to the financial surety. The requirement that the licensee provide adequate financial assurance through an approved E:\FR\FM\23APN1.SGM 23APN1
