SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The NRC published a final rule in the Federal Register on June 12, 2015 (80 FR 33987), effective July 13, 2015, amending its regulations in part 71 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) for the packaging and transportation of radioactive material. These amendments made conforming changes to the NRC’s regulations based on the International Atomic Energy Agency’s 2009 standards for the international transportation of radioactive material and maintain consistency with the DOT’s regulations. The final rule contained minor editorial errors in the definition of Contamination that was added to 10 CFR 71.4, ‘‘Definitions,’’ and contained outdated information for the contact for the rule and for examining the materials that are incorporated by reference. This document corrects the final rule by revising the calculation contained in the definition of Contamination, and updates the contact information in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section of the final rule’s preamble.

As authorized by 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), the NRC finds good cause to waive notice and opportunity for comment on the amendments because they will have no substantive impact and are of a minor and administrative nature dealing with corrections to certain CFR sections related only to management, organization, procedure, and practice.

Without limiting the full range of costs that the Board may consider, section 920(a)(4)(B) requires the Board to distinguish between two types of costs 1 Public Law 111–203, 124 Stat. 1376 (2010). section 920 is codified as 15 U.S.C. 1693o–2. EFTA section 920(c)(8) defines ‘‘an interchange transaction fee’’ (or ‘‘interchange fee’’) as any fee established, charged, or received by a payment card network for the purpose of compensating an issuer for its involvement in an electronic debit transaction. 3 Electronic debit transaction (or ‘‘debit card transaction’’) is defined in EFTA section 920(c)(5) as a transaction in which a person uses a debit card. 2 EFTA E:\FR\FM\14AUR1.SGM 14AUR1

[NRC-2008-0198]
RIN 3150-AI11


Revisions to Transportation Safety Requirements and Harmonization 
With International Atomic Energy Agency Transportation Requirements; 
Corrections

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Final rule; correcting amendments.

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

SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) published a final 
rule in the Federal Register on June 12, 2015, in consultation with the 
U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), amending its regulations for 
the packaging and transportation of radioactive material. These 
amendments made conforming changes to the NRC's regulations based on 
the International Atomic Energy Agency's 2009 standards for the 
international transportation of radioactive material and maintain 
consistency with the DOT's regulations. The final rule contained minor 
editorial errors in a calculation, outdated contact information, and 
outdated information for examining the materials that are incorporated 
by reference. This document corrects the final rule by revising the 
definition that contains these errors, and updates the contact and 
examination information.

DATES: This rule is effective on August 14, 2015.

ADDRESSES: Please refer to Docket ID NRC-2008-0198 when contacting the 
NRC about the availability of information for this correcting amendment 
or the final rule. You may obtain publicly-available information 
related to these documents by any of the following methods:

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The NRC published a final rule in the 
Federal Register on June 12, 2015 (80 FR 33987), effective July 13, 
2015, amending its regulations in part 71 of Title 10 of the Code of 
Federal Regulations (10 CFR) for the packaging and transportation of 
radioactive material. These amendments made conforming changes to the 
NRC's regulations based on the International Atomic Energy Agency's 
2009 standards for the international transportation of radioactive 
material and maintain consistency with the DOT's regulations. The final 
rule contained minor editorial errors in the definition of 
Contamination that was added to 10 CFR 71.4, ``Definitions,'' and 
contained outdated information for the contact for the rule and for 
examining the materials that are incorporated by reference. This 
document corrects the final rule by revising the calculation contained 
in the definition of Contamination, and updates the contact information 
in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section of the final rule's 
preamble. This document also updates the examination information by 
referencing the NRC Technical Library in Section XVII, Incorporation by 
Reference under 1 CFR part 51--Reasonable Availability to Interested 
Parties, of the final rule's preamble. Similarly, the new 10 CFR 71.70, 
``Incorporations by reference,'' is corrected to reference the NRC 
Technical Library.

Rulemaking Procedure

    Under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553(b)), an agency 
may waive the normal notice and comment requirements if it finds, for 
good cause, that they are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to 
the public interest. As authorized by 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), the NRC 
finds good cause to waive notice and opportunity for comment on the 
amendments because they will have no substantive impact and are of a 
minor and administrative nature dealing with corrections to certain CFR 
sections related only to management, organization, procedure, and 
practice. Specifically, these amendments are to correct editorial 
errors. These amendments do not

[[Page 48684]]

require action by any person or entity regulated by the NRC. Also, the 
final rule does not change the substantive responsibilities of any 
person or entity regulated by the NRC. Accordingly, for the reasons 
stated, the NRC finds, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), that good cause 
exists to make this rule effective upon publication.

Correction to the Preamble

preamble are made:
