The Commission will use such statements and documents as appropriate to inform its pre-hearing questions to the staff and applicant, its inquiries at the oral hearing, and its decision following the hearing. The Commission may also request, on or about January 7, 2015, that one or more particular U.S. States, local government bodies, Indian tribes, Canadian Provinces, local government bodies, or First Nations send one representative each to the evidentiary hearing to answer Commission questions and/or make a statement for the purpose of assisting the Commission’s exploration of one or more of the issues raised by the U.S. State, local government body, Indian tribe, Canadian Province, local government body, or First Nation in the pre-hearing filings described above. The decision whether to request the presence of a representative of a U.S. State, local government body, Indian tribe, Canadian Province, local government body, or First Nation at the evidentiary hearing to make a statement and/or answer Commission questions is solely at the Commission’s discretion. The Commission’s request will specify the issue or issues that each representative should be prepared to address. U.S. States, local governments, Indian tribes, Canadian Provinces, local governments, and First Nations should be aware that this evidentiary hearing is separate and distinct from the NRC’s contested hearing process. Issues within the scope of contentions that have been admitted or contested issues pending before the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board or the Commission in a contested proceeding for a COL application are outside the scope of the uncontested proceeding for that COL application. In addition, although U.S. States, local governments, Indian tribes, Canadian Provinces, local governments, or First Nations participating as described above may take any position they wish, or no position at all, with respect to issues regarding the COL application or the NRC staff’s associated environmental review that do fall within the scope of the uncontested proceeding (i.e., issues that are not within the scope of 2 The process for accessing and using the agency’s E-filing system is described in the March 17, 2009, notice of hearing that was issued by the Commission for this proceeding.

Participation in the NRC’s contested hearing process is governed by 10 CFR 2.309 (for persons or entities, including U.S. States, local governments, Indian tribes, Canadian Provinces, local governments, or First Nations, seeking to file contentions of their own) and 10 CFR 2.315(c) (for interested U.S. States, local governments, Indian tribes, Canadian Provinces, local governments, or First Nations seeking to participate with respect to contentions filed by others). Participation in this uncontested hearing does not affect a U.S. State’s, local government’s, Indian tribe’s, Canadian Province’s, local government’s, or First Nation’s right to participate in the separate contested hearing process. Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 1st day of December, 2014. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Annette L. Vietti-Cook, Secretary of the Commission.
