Procedural Background This direct final rule is limited to the changes contained in Amendment No. 1 to CoC No. 1032 and does not include other aspects of the Holtec International HI–STORM FW System design. The NRC is using the ‘‘direct final rule procedure’’ to issue this amendment because it represents a limited and routine change to an existing CoC that is expected to be noncontroversial. Adequate protection of public health and safety continues to be ensured. The amendment to the rule will become effective on December 17, 2014. However, if the NRC receives significant adverse comments on this direct final rule by November 3, 2014, then the NRC will publish a document that withdraws this action and will subsequently address the comments received in a final rule as a response to the companion proposed rule published in the proposed rule section of this issue of the Federal Register. Absent significant modifications to the proposed revisions requiring republication, the NRC will not initiate a second comment period on this action. A significant adverse comment is a comment where the commenter explains why the rule would be inappropriate, including challenges to the rule’s underlying premise or approach, or would be ineffective or unacceptable without a change. A comment is adverse and significant if: (1) The comment opposes the rule and provides a reason sufficient to require a substantive response in a notice-andcomment process. For example, a substantive response is required when: (a) The comment causes the NRC staff to reevaluate (or reconsider) its position or conduct additional analysis; (b) The comment raises an issue serious enough to warrant a substantive response to clarify or complete the record; or (c) The comment raises a relevant issue that was not previously addressed or considered by the NRC staff. (2) The comment proposes a change or an addition to the rule, and it is apparent that the rule would be ineffective or unacceptable without incorporation of the change or addition. (3) The comment causes the NRC staff to make a change (other than editorial) to the rule, CoC, or Technical Specifications (TSs).

II. Background Section 218(a) of the Nuclear Waste Policy Act (NWPA) of 1982, as amended, requires that ‘‘the Secretary [of the Department of Energy] shall establish a demonstration program, in cooperation with the private sector, for the dry storage of spent nuclear fuel at civilian nuclear power reactor sites, with the objective of establishing one or more technologies that the [ Nuclear Regulatory] Commission may, by rule, approve for use at the sites of civilian nuclear power reactors without, to the maximum extent practicable, the need for additional site-specific approvals by the Commission.’’ Section 133 of the NWPA states, in part, that ‘‘[the Commission] shall, by rule, establish procedures for the licensing of any technology approved by the Commission under Section 219(a) [sic: 218(a)] for use at the site of any civilian nuclear power reactor.’’ To implement this mandate, the Commission approved dry storage of spent nuclear fuel in NRC-approved casks under a general license by publishing a final rule which added a new subpart K in part 72 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) entitled, ‘‘General License for Storage of Spent Fuel at Power Reactor Sites’’ (55 FR 29181; July 18, 1990). This rule also established a new subpart L in 10 CFR part 72 entitled, ‘‘Approval of Spent Fuel Storage Casks,’’ which contains procedures and criteria for obtaining NRC approval of spent fuel storage cask designs. The NRC subsequently issued a final rule on June 8, 2011 (76 FR 33121), that approved the Holtec International HI–STORM FW System design and added it to the list of NRC-approved cask designs in 10 CFR 72.214 as CoC No. 1032. rmajette on DSK2TPTVN1PROD with RULES III. Discussion of Changes By letter dated October 13, 2011, and as supplemented on May 23, 2012, January 24, April 18, and July 23, 2013, Holtec International, Inc. (Holtec or the applicant) submitted an application to the NRC to amend CoC No. 1032. The amendment adds a new heat load pattern for the MPC–37, broadens the back pressure range for MPC–37 and MPC–89, and updates certain definitions related to fuel classification. Also, the amendment makes a correction to the expiration date of CoC No. 1032. VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:48 Oct 02, 2014 Jkt 235001 As documented in the safety evaluation report (SER), the NRC staff performed a detailed safety evaluation of the proposed CoC amendment request. There are no significant changes to cask design requirements in the proposed CoC amendment. Considering the specific design requirements for each accident condition, the design of the cask would prevent loss of containment, shielding, and criticality control. If there is no loss of containment, shielding, or criticality control, the environmental impacts would be insignificant. This amendment does not reflect a significant change in design or fabrication of the cask. In addition, any resulting occupational exposure or offsite dose rates from the implementation of Amendment No. 1 would remain well within the 10 CFR part 20 limits. Therefore, the proposed CoC changes will not result in any radiological or non-radiological environmental impacts that significantly differ from the environmental impacts evaluated in the environmental assessment supporting the July 18, 1990, final rule. There will be no significant change in the types or significant revisions in the amounts of any effluent released, no significant increase in the individual or cumulative radiation exposure, and no significant increase in the potential for or consequences from radiological accidents. This direct final rule revises the Holtec International HI–STORM FW System listing in 10 CFR 72.214 by adding Amendment No. 1 to CoC No. 1032. The amendment consists of the changes previously described, as set forth in the revised CoC and TSs. The revised TSs are identified in the SER. The amended Holtec International HI–STORM FW System design, when used under the conditions specified in the CoC, the TSs, and the NRC’s regulations, will meet the requirements of 10 CFR part 72; therefore, adequate protection of public health and safety will continue to be ensured. When this direct final rule becomes effective, persons who hold a general license under 10 CFR 72.210 may load spent nuclear fuel into the Holtec International HI–STORM FW System that meet the criteria of Amendment No. 1 to CoC No. 1032 under 10 CFR 72.212. IV. Voluntary Consensus Standards The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104–113) requires that Federal agencies use technical standards that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies unless the use of such a standard is inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 impractical. In this direct final rule, the NRC will revise the Holtec International HI–STORM FW System design listed in 10 CFR 72.214. This action does not constitute the establishment of a standard that contains generally applicable requirements. V. Agreement State Compatibility Under the ‘‘Policy Statement on Adequacy and Compatibility of Agreement State Programs’’ approved by the Commission on June 30, 1997, and published in the Federal Register on September 3, 1997 (62 FR 46517), this direct final rule is classified as Compatibility Category ‘‘NRC.’’ Compatibility is not required for Category ‘‘NRC’’ regulations. The NRC program elements in this category are those that relate directly to areas of regulation reserved to the NRC by the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, or the provisions of 10 CFR. Although an Agreement State may not adopt program elements reserved to the NRC, it may wish to inform its licensees of certain requirements via a mechanism that is consistent with the particular State’s administrative procedure laws, but does not confer regulatory authority on the State. VI. Plain Writing The Plain Writing Act of 2010 (Pub. L. 111–274) requires Federal agencies to write documents in a clear, concise, well-organized manner. The NRC has written this document to be consistent with the Plain Writing Act as well as the Presidential Memorandum, ‘‘Plain Language in Government Writing,’’ published June 10, 1998 (63 FR 31883). VII. Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Environmental Impact A. The Action The action is to amend 10 CFR 72.214 to revise the Holtec International HI– STORM FW System listing within the ‘‘List of approved spent fuel storage casks’’ to include Amendment No. 1 to CoC No. 1032. Under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended, and the NRC’s regulations in subpart A of 10 CFR part 51, ‘‘Environmental Protection Regulations for Domestic Licensing and Related Regulatory Functions,’’ the NRC has determined that this rule, if adopted, would not be a major Federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment and, therefore, an environmental impact statement is not required. The NRC has made a finding of no significant impact on the basis of this environmental assessment. E:\FR\FM\03OCR1.SGM 03OCR1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 192 / Friday, October 3, 2014 / Rules and Regulations B. The Need for the Action This direct final rule amends the CoC for the Holtec International HI–STORM FW System design within the list of approved spent fuel storage casks that power reactor licensees can use to store spent fuel at reactor sites under a general license. Specifically, Amendment No. 1 adds a new heat load pattern for the multipurpose canister MPC–37, broadens the back pressure range for MPC–37 and MPC–89, and updates certain definitions related to fuel classification. Also, the amendment makes a correction to the expiration date of CoC No. 1032. rmajette on DSK2TPTVN1PROD with RULES C. Environmental Impacts of the Action On July 18, 1990 (55 FR 29181), the NRC issued an amendment to 10 CFR part 72 to provide for the storage of spent fuel under a general license in cask designs approved by the NRC. The potential environmental impact of using NRC-approved storage casks was initially analyzed in the environmental assessment for the 1990 final rule. The environmental assessment for this Amendment No. 1 tiers off of the environmental assessment for the July 18, 1990, final rule. Tiering on past environmental assessments is a standard process under the National Environmental Policy Act. The Holtec International HI–STORM FW System is designed to mitigate the effects of design basis accidents that could occur during storage. Design basis accidents account for human-induced events and the most severe natural phenomena reported for the site and surrounding area. Postulated accidents analyzed for an Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation, the type of facility at which a holder of a power reactor operating license would store spent fuel in casks in accordance with 10 CFR part 72, include tornado winds and tornadogenerated missiles, a design basis earthquake, a design basis flood, an accidental cask drop, lightning effects, fire, explosions, and other incidents. Considering the specific design requirements for each accident condition, the design of the cask would prevent loss of containment, shielding, and criticality control. If there is no loss of containment, shielding, or criticality control, the environmental impacts would be insignificant. This amendment does not reflect a significant change in design or fabrication of the cask. There are no significant changes to cask design requirements in the proposed CoC amendment. In addition, because there are no significant design or process changes, any resulting occupational exposure or offsite dose rates from the VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:48 Oct 02, 2014 Jkt 235001 59625 implementation of Amendment No. 1 would remain well within the 10 CFR part 20 limits. Therefore, the proposed CoC changes will not result in any radiological or non-radiological environmental impacts that significantly differ from the environmental impacts evaluated in the environmental assessment supporting the July 18, 1990, final rule. There will be no significant change in the types or significant revisions in the amounts of any effluent released, no significant increase in the individual or cumulative radiation exposure, and no significant increase in the potential for or consequences from radiological accidents. The staff documented its safety findings in the SER for this amendment. VIII. Paperwork Reduction Act Statement This direct final rule does not contain any information collection requirements and, therefore, is not subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). Existing requirements were approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Approval Number 3150–0132. D. Alternative to the Action The alternative to this action is to deny approval of Amendment No. 1 and end the direct final rule. Consequently, any 10 CFR part 72 general licensee that seeks to load spent nuclear fuel into Holtec International HI–STORM FW System casks in accordance with the changes described in proposed Amendment No. 1 would have to request an exemption from the requirements of 10 CFR 72.212 and 72.214. Under this alternative, interested licensees would have to prepare, and the NRC would have to review, a separate exemption request, thereby increasing the administrative burden upon the NRC and the costs to each licensee. Therefore, the environmental impacts would be the same or less than the action. IX. Regulatory Flexibility Certification Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (5 U.S.C. 605(b)), the NRC certifies that this direct final rule will not, if issued, have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This direct final rule affects only nuclear power plant licensees and Holtec. These entities do not fall within the scope of the definition of small entities set forth in the Regulatory Flexibility Act or the size standards established by the NRC (10 CFR 2.810). E. Alternative Use of Resources Approval of Amendment No. 1 to CoC No. 1032 would result in no irreversible commitments of resources. F. Agencies and Persons Contacted No agencies or persons outside the NRC were contacted in connection with the preparation of this environmental assessment. G. Finding of No Significant Impact The environmental impacts of the action have been reviewed under the requirements in 10 CFR part 51. Based on the foregoing environmental assessment, the NRC concludes that this direct final rule entitled, ‘‘List of Approved Spent Fuel Storage Casks: Holtec International HI–STORM FLOOD/WIND System; Certificate of Compliance No. 1032, Amendment No. 1,’’ will not have a significant effect on the human environment. Therefore, the NRC has determined that an environmental impact statement is not necessary for this direct final rule. PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Public Protection Notification The NRC may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to a request for information or an information collection requirement unless the requesting document displays a currently valid OMB control number. X. Regulatory Analysis On July 18, 1990 (55 FR 29181), the NRC issued an amendment to 10 CFR part 72 to provide for the storage of spent nuclear fuel under a general license in cask designs approved by the NRC. Any nuclear power reactor licensee can use NRC-approved cask designs to store spent nuclear fuel if it notifies the NRC in advance, the spent fuel is stored under the conditions specified in the cask’s CoC, and the conditions of the general license are met. A list of NRC-approved cask designs is contained in 10 CFR 72.214. On June 8, 2011 (76 FR 33121), the NRC issued an amendment to 10 CFR part 72 that approved the Holtec International HI–STORM FW System design and added it to the list of NRC-approved cask designs in 10 CFR 72.214 as CoC No.1032. On October 13, 2011, and as supplemented on May 23, 2012, January 24, 2013, April 18, 2013, and July 23, 2013, Holtec submitted an application to amend the Holtec International HI– STORM FW System as described in Section III of this document. The alternative to this action is to withhold approval of Amendment No. 1 and to require any 10 CFR part 72 general licensee seeking to load spent nuclear fuel into the Holtec E:\FR\FM\03OCR1.SGM 03OCR1 59626 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 192 / Friday, October 3, 2014 / Rules and Regulations rmajette on DSK2TPTVN1PROD with RULES International HI–STORM FW System under the changes described in Amendment No. 1 to request an exemption from the requirements of 10 CFR 72.212 and 72.214. Under this alternative, each interested 10 CFR part 72 licensee would have to prepare, and the NRC would have to review, a separate exemption request, thereby increasing the administrative burden upon the NRC and the costs to each licensee. Approval of this direct final rule is consistent with previous NRC actions. Further, as documented in the SER and the environmental assessment, the direct final rule will have no adverse effect on public health and safety or the environment. This direct final rule has no significant identifiable impact or benefit on other Government agencies. Based on this regulatory analysis, the NRC concludes that the requirements of the direct final rule are commensurate with the NRC’s responsibilities for public health and safety and the common defense and security. No other available alternative is believed to be as satisfactory, and therefore, this action is recommended. represent an inconsistency with the issue finality provisions applicable to combined licenses in 10 CFR part 52. Accordingly, no backfit analysis or additional documentation addressing the issue finality criteria in 10 CFR part 52 has been prepared by the staff. XI. Backfitting and Issue Finality The NRC has determined that the backfit rule (10 CFR 72.62) does not apply to this direct final rule. Therefore, a backfit analysis is not required. This direct final rule revises the CoC No. 1032 for the Holtec International HI– STORM FW System, as currently listed in 10 CFR 72.214, ‘‘List of approved spent fuel storage casks.’’ The revision consists of Amendment No. 1 which adds a new heat load pattern for the MPC–37, broadens the back pressure range for MPC–37 and MPC–89, and updates certain definitions related to fuel classification. Also the amendment makes a correction to the expiration date of CoC No. 1032. Amendment No. 1 to CoC No. 1032 for the Holtec International HI–STORM FW System was initiated by Holtec and was not submitted in response to new NRC requirements, or an NRC request for amendment. Amendment No. 1 applies only to new casks fabricated and used under Amendment No. 1. These changes do not affect existing users of the Holtec International HI–STORM FW System, and the current Amendment continues to be effective for existing users. While current CoC users may comply with the new requirements in Amendment No. 1, this would be a voluntary decision on the part of current users. For these reasons, Amendment No. 1 to CoC No. 1032 does not constitute backfitting under 10 CFR 72.62, 10 CFR 50.109(a)(1), or otherwise ML13028A103.

NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION

10 CFR Part 72

[NRC-2014-0102]
RIN 3150-AJ40


List of Approved Spent Fuel Storage Casks: Holtec International 
HI-STORM FLOOD/WIND System; Certificate of Compliance No. 1032, 
Amendment No. 1

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Direct final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is amending its 
spent fuel storage regulations by revising the Holtec International HI-
STORM FLOOD/WIND (FW) System listing within the ``List of approved 
spent fuel storage casks'' to include Amendment No. 1 to Certificate of 
Compliance (CoC) No. 1032. Amendment No. 1 adds a new heat load pattern 
for the multipurpose canister (MPC)-37, broadens the back pressure 
range for MPC-37 and MPC-89, and updates certain definitions related to 
fuel classification. Also, the amendment makes a correction to the 
expiration date of CoC No. 1032.

I. Procedural Background

    This direct final rule is limited to the changes contained in 
Amendment No. 1 to CoC No. 1032 and does not include other aspects of 
the Holtec International HI-STORM FW System design. The NRC is using 
the ``direct final rule procedure'' to issue this amendment because it 
represents a limited and routine change to an existing CoC that is 
expected to be noncontroversial. Adequate protection of public health 
and safety continues to be ensured. The amendment to the rule will 
become effective on December 17, 2014. However, if the NRC receives 
significant adverse comments on this direct final rule by November 3, 
2014, then the NRC will publish a document that withdraws this action 
and will subsequently address the comments received in a final rule as 
a response to the companion proposed rule published in the proposed 
rule section of this issue of the Federal Register. Absent significant 
modifications to the proposed revisions requiring republication, the 
NRC will not initiate a second comment period on this action.
    A significant adverse comment is a comment where the commenter 
explains why the rule would be inappropriate, including challenges to 
the rule's underlying premise or approach, or would be ineffective or 
unacceptable without a change. A comment is adverse and significant if:
    (1) The comment opposes the rule and provides a reason sufficient 
to require a substantive response in a notice-and-comment process. For 
example, a substantive response is required when:
    (a) The comment causes the NRC staff to reevaluate (or reconsider) 
its position or conduct additional analysis;
    (b) The comment raises an issue serious enough to warrant a 
substantive response to clarify or complete the record; or
    (c) The comment raises a relevant issue that was not previously 
addressed or considered by the NRC staff.
    (2) The comment proposes a change or an addition to the rule, and 
it is apparent that the rule would be ineffective or unacceptable 
without incorporation of the change or addition.
    (3) The comment causes the NRC staff to make a change (other than 
editorial) to the rule, CoC, or Technical Specifications (TSs).

[[Page 59624]]

    For detailed instructions on filing comments, please see the 
companion proposed rule published in the Proposed Rule section of this 
issue of the Federal Register.

II. Background

    Section 218(a) of the Nuclear Waste Policy Act (NWPA) of 1982, as 
amended, requires that ``the Secretary [of the Department of Energy] 
shall establish a demonstration program, in cooperation with the 
private sector, for the dry storage of spent nuclear fuel at civilian 
nuclear power reactor sites, with the objective of establishing one or 
more technologies that the [ Nuclear Regulatory] Commission may, by 
rule, approve for use at the sites of civilian nuclear power reactors 
without, to the maximum extent practicable, the need for additional 
site-specific approvals by the Commission.'' Section 133 of the NWPA 
states, in part, that ``[the Commission] shall, by rule, establish 
procedures for the licensing of any technology approved by the 
Commission under Section 219(a) [sic: 218(a)] for use at the site of 
any civilian nuclear power reactor.''
    To implement this mandate, the Commission approved dry storage of 
spent nuclear fuel in NRC-approved casks under a general license by 
publishing a final rule which added a new subpart K in part 72 of Title 
10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) entitled, ``General 
License for Storage of Spent Fuel at Power Reactor Sites'' (55 FR 
29181; July 18, 1990). This rule also established a new subpart L in 10 
CFR part 72 entitled, ``Approval of Spent Fuel Storage Casks,'' which 
contains procedures and criteria for obtaining NRC approval of spent 
fuel storage cask designs. The NRC subsequently issued a final rule on 
June 8, 2011 (76 FR 33121), that approved the Holtec International HI-
STORM FW System design and added it to the list of NRC-approved cask 
designs in 10 CFR 72.214 as CoC No. 1032.

III. Discussion of Changes

    By letter dated October 13, 2011, and as supplemented on May 23, 
2012, January 24, April 18, and July 23, 2013, Holtec International, 
Inc. (Holtec or the applicant) submitted an application to the NRC to 
amend CoC No. 1032. The amendment adds a new heat load pattern for the 
MPC-37, broadens the back pressure range for MPC-37 and MPC-89, and 
updates certain definitions related to fuel classification. Also, the 
amendment makes a correction to the expiration date of CoC No. 1032.
    As documented in the safety evaluation report (SER), the NRC staff 
performed a detailed safety evaluation of the proposed CoC amendment 
request. There are no significant changes to cask design requirements 
in the proposed CoC amendment. Considering the specific design 
requirements for each accident condition, the design of the cask would 
prevent loss of containment, shielding, and criticality control. If 
there is no loss of containment, shielding, or criticality control, the 
environmental impacts would be insignificant. This amendment does not 
reflect a significant change in design or fabrication of the cask. In 
addition, any resulting occupational exposure or offsite dose rates 
from the implementation of Amendment No. 1 would remain well within the 
10 CFR part 20 limits. Therefore, the proposed CoC changes will not 
result in any radiological or non-radiological environmental impacts 
that significantly differ from the environmental impacts evaluated in 
the environmental assessment supporting the July 18, 1990, final rule. 
There will be no significant change in the types or significant 
revisions in the amounts of any effluent released, no significant 
increase in the individual or cumulative radiation exposure, and no 
significant increase in the potential for or consequences from 
radiological accidents.
    This direct final rule revises the Holtec International HI-STORM FW 
System listing in 10 CFR 72.214 by adding Amendment No. 1 to CoC No. 
1032. The amendment consists of the changes previously described, as 
set forth in the revised CoC and TSs. The revised TSs are identified in 
the SER.
    The amended Holtec International HI-STORM FW System design, when 
used under the conditions specified in the CoC, the TSs, and the NRC's 
regulations, will meet the requirements of 10 CFR part 72; therefore, 
adequate protection of public health and safety will continue to be 
ensured. When this direct final rule becomes effective, persons who 
hold a general license under 10 CFR 72.210 may load spent nuclear fuel 
into the Holtec International HI-STORM FW System that meet the criteria 
of Amendment No. 1 to CoC No. 1032 under 10 CFR 72.212.

IV. Voluntary Consensus Standards

    The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (Pub. 
L. 104-113) requires that Federal agencies use technical standards that 
are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies unless 
the use of such a standard is inconsistent with applicable law or 
otherwise impractical. In this direct final rule, the NRC will revise 
the Holtec International HI-STORM FW System design listed in 10 CFR 
72.214. This action does not constitute the establishment of a standard 
that contains generally applicable requirements.

V. Agreement State Compatibility

    Under the ``Policy Statement on Adequacy and Compatibility of 
Agreement State Programs'' approved by the Commission on June 30, 1997, 
and published in the Federal Register on September 3, 1997 (62 FR 
46517), this direct final rule is classified as Compatibility Category 
``NRC.'' Compatibility is not required for Category ``NRC'' 
regulations. The NRC program elements in this category are those that 
relate directly to areas of regulation reserved to the NRC by the 
Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, or the provisions of 10 CFR. 
Although an Agreement State may not adopt program elements reserved to 
the NRC, it may wish to inform its licensees of certain requirements 
via a mechanism that is consistent with the particular State's 
administrative procedure laws, but does not confer regulatory authority 
on the State.

VI. Plain Writing

    The Plain Writing Act of 2010 (Pub. L. 111-274) requires Federal 
agencies to write documents in a clear, concise, well-organized manner. 
The NRC has written this document to be consistent with the Plain 
Writing Act as well as the Presidential Memorandum, ``Plain Language in 
Government Writing,'' published June 10, 1998 (63 FR 31883).

VII. Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant 
Environmental Impact

A. The Action

    The action is to amend 10 CFR 72.214 to revise the Holtec 
International HI-STORM FW System listing within the ``List of approved 
spent fuel storage casks'' to include Amendment No. 1 to CoC No. 1032. 
Under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended, and 
the NRC's regulations in subpart A of 10 CFR part 51, ``Environmental 
Protection Regulations for Domestic Licensing and Related Regulatory 
Functions,'' the NRC has determined that this rule, if adopted, would 
not be a major Federal action significantly affecting the quality of 
the human environment and, therefore, an environmental impact statement 
is not required. The NRC has made a finding of no significant impact on 
the basis of this environmental assessment.

[[Page 59625]]

B. The Need for the Action

    This direct final rule amends the CoC for the Holtec International 
HI-STORM FW System design within the list of approved spent fuel 
storage casks that power reactor licensees can use to store spent fuel 
at reactor sites under a general license. Specifically, Amendment No. 1 
adds a new heat load pattern for the multipurpose canister MPC-37, 
broadens the back pressure range for MPC-37 and MPC-89, and updates 
certain definitions related to fuel classification. Also, the amendment 
makes a correction to the expiration date of CoC No. 1032.

C. Environmental Impacts of the Action

    On July 18, 1990 (55 FR 29181), the NRC issued an amendment to 10 
CFR part 72 to provide for the storage of spent fuel under a general 
license in cask designs approved by the NRC. The potential 
environmental impact of using NRC-approved storage casks was initially 
analyzed in the environmental assessment for the 1990 final rule. The 
environmental assessment for this Amendment No. 1 tiers off of the 
environmental assessment for the July 18, 1990, final rule. Tiering on 
past environmental assessments is a standard process under the National 
Environmental Policy Act.
    The Holtec International HI-STORM FW System is designed to mitigate 
the effects of design basis accidents that could occur during storage. 
Design basis accidents account for human-induced events and the most 
severe natural phenomena reported for the site and surrounding area. 
Postulated accidents analyzed for an Independent Spent Fuel Storage 
Installation, the type of facility at which a holder of a power reactor 
operating license would store spent fuel in casks in accordance with 10 
CFR part 72, include tornado winds and tornado-generated missiles, a 
design basis earthquake, a design basis flood, an accidental cask drop, 
lightning effects, fire, explosions, and other incidents.
    Considering the specific design requirements for each accident 
condition, the design of the cask would prevent loss of containment, 
shielding, and criticality control. If there is no loss of containment, 
shielding, or criticality control, the environmental impacts would be 
insignificant. This amendment does not reflect a significant change in 
design or fabrication of the cask. There are no significant changes to 
cask design requirements in the proposed CoC amendment. In addition, 
because there are no significant design or process changes, any 
resulting occupational exposure or offsite dose rates from the 
implementation of Amendment No. 1 would remain well within the 10 CFR 
part 20 limits. Therefore, the proposed CoC changes will not result in 
any radiological or non-radiological environmental impacts that 
significantly differ from the environmental impacts evaluated in the 
environmental assessment supporting the July 18, 1990, final rule. 
There will be no significant change in the types or significant 
revisions in the amounts of any effluent released, no significant 
increase in the individual or cumulative radiation exposure, and no 
significant increase in the potential for or consequences from 
radiological accidents. The staff documented its safety findings in the 
SER for this amendment.

D. Alternative to the Action

    The alternative to this action is to deny approval of Amendment No. 
1 and end the direct final rule. Consequently, any 10 CFR part 72 
general licensee that seeks to load spent nuclear fuel into Holtec 
International HI-STORM FW System casks in accordance with the changes 
described in proposed Amendment No. 1 would have to request an 
exemption from the requirements of 10 CFR 72.212 and 72.214. Under this 
alternative, interested licensees would have to prepare, and the NRC 
would have to review, a separate exemption request, thereby increasing 
the administrative burden upon the NRC and the costs to each licensee. 
Therefore, the environmental impacts would be the same or less than the 
action.

E. Alternative Use of Resources

    Approval of Amendment No. 1 to CoC No. 1032 would result in no 
irreversible commitments of resources.

F. Agencies and Persons Contacted

    No agencies or persons outside the NRC were contacted in connection 
with the preparation of this environmental assessment.

G. Finding of No Significant Impact

    The environmental impacts of the action have been reviewed under 
the requirements in 10 CFR part 51. Based on the foregoing 
environmental assessment, the NRC concludes that this direct final rule 
entitled, ``List of Approved Spent Fuel Storage Casks: Holtec 
International HI-STORM FLOOD/WIND System; Certificate of Compliance No. 
1032, Amendment No. 1,'' will not have a significant effect on the 
human environment. Therefore, the NRC has determined that an 
environmental impact statement is not necessary for this direct final 
rule.

VIII. Paperwork Reduction Act Statement

    This direct final rule does not contain any information collection 
requirements and, therefore, is not subject to the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). Existing requirements were 
approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Approval Number 
3150-0132.

Public Protection Notification

    The NRC may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to 
respond to a request for information or an information collection 
requirement unless the requesting document displays a currently valid 
OMB control number.

IX. Regulatory Flexibility Certification

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (5 U.S.C. 605(b)), the 
NRC certifies that this direct final rule will not, if issued, have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. 
This direct final rule affects only nuclear power plant licensees and 
Holtec. These entities do not fall within the scope of the definition 
of small entities set forth in the Regulatory Flexibility Act or the 
size standards established by the NRC (10 CFR 2.810).

X. Regulatory Analysis

    On July 18, 1990 (55 FR 29181), the NRC issued an amendment to 10 
CFR part 72 to provide for the storage of spent nuclear fuel under a 
general license in cask designs approved by the NRC. Any nuclear power 
reactor licensee can use NRC-approved cask designs to store spent 
nuclear fuel if it notifies the NRC in advance, the spent fuel is 
stored under the conditions specified in the cask's CoC, and the 
conditions of the general license are met. A list of NRC-approved cask 
designs is contained in 10 CFR 72.214. On June 8, 2011 (76 FR 33121), 
the NRC issued an amendment to 10 CFR part 72 that approved the Holtec 
International HI-STORM FW System design and added it to the list of 
NRC-approved cask designs in 10 CFR 72.214 as CoC No.1032.
    On October 13, 2011, and as supplemented on May 23, 2012, January 
24, 2013, April 18, 2013, and July 23, 2013, Holtec submitted an 
application to amend the Holtec International HI-STORM FW System as 
described in Section III of this document.
    The alternative to this action is to withhold approval of Amendment 
No. 1 and to require any 10 CFR part 72 general licensee seeking to 
load spent nuclear fuel into the Holtec

[[Page 59626]]

International HI-STORM FW System under the changes described in 
Amendment No. 1 to request an exemption from the requirements of 10 CFR 
72.212 and 72.214. Under this alternative, each interested 10 CFR part 
72 licensee would have to prepare, and the NRC would have to review, a 
separate exemption request, thereby increasing the administrative 
burden upon the NRC and the costs to each licensee.
    Approval of this direct final rule is consistent with previous NRC 
actions. Further, as documented in the SER and the environmental 
assessment, the direct final rule will have no adverse effect on public 
health and safety or the environment. This direct final rule has no 
significant identifiable impact or benefit on other Government 
agencies. Based on this regulatory analysis, the NRC concludes that the 
requirements of the direct final rule are commensurate with the NRC's 
responsibilities for public health and safety and the common defense 
and security. No other available alternative is believed to be as 
satisfactory, and therefore, this action is recommended.

XI. Backfitting and Issue Finality

    The NRC has determined that the backfit rule (10 CFR 72.62) does 
not apply to this direct final rule. Therefore, a backfit analysis is 
not required. This direct final rule revises the CoC No. 1032 for the 
Holtec International HI-STORM FW System, as currently listed in 10 CFR 
72.214, ``List of approved spent fuel storage casks.'' The revision 
consists of Amendment No. 1 which adds a new heat load pattern for the 
MPC-37, broadens the back pressure range for MPC-37 and MPC-89, and 
updates certain definitions related to fuel classification. Also the 
amendment makes a correction to the expiration date of CoC No. 1032.
    Amendment No. 1 to CoC No. 1032 for the Holtec International HI-
STORM FW System was initiated by Holtec and was not submitted in 
response to new NRC requirements, or an NRC request for amendment. 
Amendment No. 1 applies only to new casks fabricated and used under 
Amendment No. 1. These changes do not affect existing users of the 
Holtec International HI-STORM FW System, and the current Amendment 
continues to be effective for existing users. While current CoC users 
may comply with the new requirements in Amendment No. 1, this would be 
a voluntary decision on the part of current users. For these reasons, 
Amendment No. 1 to CoC No. 1032 does not constitute backfitting under 
10 CFR 72.62, 10 CFR 50.109(a)(1), or otherwise represent an 
inconsistency with the issue finality provisions applicable to combined 
licenses in 10 CFR part 52. Accordingly, no backfit analysis or 
additional documentation addressing the issue finality criteria in 10 
CFR part 52 has been prepared by the staff.

XII. Congressional Review Act

    This action is not a rule as defined in the Congressional Review 
Act (5 U.S.C. 801-808).
