Introduction Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act states that when an agency issues notice of a proposed rulemaking, the agency must include ‘‘reference to the legal authority under which the rule is proposed’’ (5 U.S.C. 553). The OFR has published regulations in Chapter I of Title 1 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) explaining how authority citations should be formatted in the CFR when final rules are codified (1 CFR part 21). The OFR also provides guidance on the proper formatting of statutory and nonstatutory authority citations in its Federal Register Document Drafting Handbook (October 1998 Revision).1 The NRC is amending its regulations in Chapter I of 10 CFR; Chapter XX of 2 CFR, the NRC’s policies and procedures for nonprocurement debarment and suspension; and Chapter XLVIII of 5 CFR, the supplemental standards of ethical conduct for NRC employees; to better conform to the OFR’s regulations and guidance for the formatting of authority citations. These non-substantive formatting amendments will shorten the NRC’s authority citation sections and provide the public with clearer and simpler references to the 1 See http://www.archives.gov/federal-register/ write/handbook/ddh.pdf. PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 NRC’s statutory and nonstatutory authority. The NRC is also making certain corrections and amendments to the authority citations of these regulations to fix typographical errors, add missing authority citations, or remove redundant authority citations. This rulemaking is corrective in nature and only serves to reformat or clarify already-existing NRC authority citations. This rule does not create any new requirements for NRC stakeholders, nor does it alter any existing right, obligation, or prohibition for persons or entities regulated by the NRC. II. Summary of Changes The amendments made in this rule are divided into two categories: Generic formatting changes and part-specific corrections. The generic formatting changes are described in this section, with a list of every CFR part subject to each generic formatting change. Amendments made in this rule that do not fall within the scope of the generic formatting changes are discussed in the part-specific technical corrections section. Such changes are identified within each part with a description of the reason for the change. A. Generic Formatting Changes (1) Formatting of authority citations for NRC Significant Statutes. The OFR’s guidance states that statutory authority citations should only use the United States Code (U.S.C.) citation and not the popular name of a public law (e.g., ‘‘Atomic Energy Act of 1954’’). However, the NRC has historically cited to sections of the agency’s organic statutes by popular name, as well as other significant statutes by popular name, in addition to the U.S.C. citation. The NRC’s stakeholders are more familiar with these references than their accompanying U.S.C. citations. The NRC has received permission from the OFR to cite to the seven significant statutes identified in Table 1 of this document by the statute’s popular name as well as the U.S.C. citation (ADAMS Accession No. ML14265A100). These citations will now include the popular name of the statute (derived from the Popular Names Tool of the Office of the Law Revision Counsel, U.S. House of Representatives) 2 followed by the 2 See http://uscode.house.gov/popularnames/ popularnames.pdf.

National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 .............................................. The following CFR parts are being amended consistent with this generic formatting change: 5 CFR part 5801; 10 CFR parts 1, 2, 4, 7, 9, 10, 11, 14, 15, 16, 19, 20, 21, 25, 26, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 39, 40, 50, 51, 52, 54, 55, 60, 61, 62, 63 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 81, 95, 100, 110, 140, 150, 160, 170, and 171. (2) Removing popular names and public law numbers of non-significant statutes. All authority citations with references to the popular names of statutes not listed in Table 1 of this document are revised to cite only the appropriate U.S.C. section, in conformance with OFR guidance. For example, all citations to the ‘‘Government Paperwork Elimination Act,’’ which provided agencies with authority to accept electronic submissions and signatures as a substitute for paper where practicable, is now cited throughout 10 CFR as ‘‘44 U.S.C. 3504 note.’’ Additionally, all references to public law numbers or U.S. Statutes at Large are being removed except where U.S.C. citations do not exist (for example, appropriations laws), in conformance with OFR guidance. The following CFR parts are being amended consistent with this generic formatting change: 5 CFR part 5801; 10 CFR parts 2, 4, 9, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 19, 20, 21, 25, 26, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 39, 40, 50, 51, 52, 54, 55, 60, 61, 62, 63, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 81, 95, 100, 110, 140, 150, 170, and 171. (3) Relocation of specific ‘‘also issued’’ citations for significant statutes. The OFR’s guidance states that agencies may provide authority citations for particular subparts or particular sections within the central authority citation for a CFR part (e.g., ‘‘Section 30.7 also issued under 42 U.S.C. 5851’’). However, this practice is optional and has in some cases led to lengthy authority citation sections that are VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:17 Sep 08, 2015 Jkt 235001 difficult to read and comprehend. Additionally, these specific ‘‘also issued’’ citations often restate authorities that are already cited for the whole part in the central authority citation, making them redundant. In an effort to provide more concise and clear authority citations, the NRC is no longer using specific ‘‘also issued’’ citations that reference any of the significant statutes listed in Table 1 of this document. These authority citations will be reflected generally in the central authority citation. However, the NRC will still use specific ‘‘also issued’’ citations that reference authorities not listed in Table 1 of this document, when appropriate. The NRC’s stakeholders are less likely to be familiar with such authority, making these specific references more beneficial for the public. The following CFR parts are being amended consistent with this generic formatting change: 10 CFR parts 2, 4, 9, 19, 21, 30, 34, 40, 50, 51, 55, 70, 72, 73, 75, 76, 110, and 150. (4) Revising or removing all citations to the Energy Policy Act. The Energy Policy Act of 2005, Public Law 109–58, 119 Stat. 594 (2005) (EPAct) is referenced in authority citations throughout 10 CFR. However the EPAct amended certain provisions of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, the Energy Reorganization Act of 1974, and the Low-Level Radioactive Waste Policy Amendments Act of 1985, among other statutes. The EPAct is not in and of itself a substantive organic statute, but instead is reflected in the amended portions of other statutes. In many cases these statutes already are contained in the authority citation, making the reference to the EPAct redundant. Reference to the EPAct is inconsistent with OFR guidance, which states that popular names of statutes or public law numbers should not be used if the law has been codified in the U.S.C. Therefore, consistent with OFR PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 guidance, all citations to the EPAct have been converted to the corresponding citations of the statute amended by the EPAct, unless the corresponding citations are already included within the central authority citation. Additionally, citations to the EPAct have been removed entirely in some parts, where appropriate; these removals are identified and explained in the Section B, ‘‘Part-specific Corrections,’’ of this section. The following CFR parts are being amended consistent with this generic formatting change: 10 CFR parts 20, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 40, 50, 52, 60, 61, 62, 63, 70, 71, 72, 73, 76, 110, 140, 150, 170, and 171. (5) Reformatting citations to Executive Orders. Consistent with OFR guidance, authority citations that reference Executive Orders now include a Federal Register citation, as well as a CFR citation. Also, typographical errors in page numbers are being corrected. Executive Orders in the following CFR parts are being amended consistent with this generic formatting change: 2 CFR part 2000; 5 CFR part 5801; 10 CFR parts 10, 15, 25, 54, and 95. B. Part-Specific Corrections The following discussion contains a list of the changes made to each authority citation section by this rulemaking that does not fall within the scope of the generic changes previously described, and the reasons for each change. 2 CFR Part 2000 Remove from citation. The reference ‘‘10 U.S.C. 113’’ is removed. Section 113 provides authority to the U.S. Department of Defense, not the NRC. 10 CFR Part 1 Revise citation. The citation ‘‘45 FR 40561, June 16, 1980’’ is removed and replaced with ‘‘5 U.S.C. Appendix (Reorganization Plans)’’ to properly cite E:\FR\FM\09SER1.SGM 09SER1 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 174 / Wednesday, September 9, 2015 / Rules and Regulations to the correct portion of this appendix in the U.S. Code. Add to citation. A reference to ‘‘Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 25 (42 U.S.C. 2035)’’ is added. Section 25 created the Office of the General Counsel, which is specifically referenced in 10 CFR part 1. 10 CFR Part 2 Add to citation. A reference to ‘‘Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 182 (42 U.S.C. 2232)’’ is added. Section 182 provides authority for the Commission to require written statements from applicants or licensees in order to determine whether an application should be granted or denied or whether a license should be modified or revoked, and to require such statements to be made under oath or affirmation. This section provides authority for 10 CFR 2.204, ‘‘Demand for Information.’’ A reference to ‘‘Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 187 (42 U.S.C. 2237)’’ is added. Section 187 provides authority for the Commission to modify terms and conditions of all licenses, and provides authority for 10 CFR part 2, subpart B, ‘‘Procedure for Imposing Requirements by Order, or for Modification, Suspension, or Revocation of a License, or for Imposing Civil Penalties.’’ 10 CFR Part 4 Revise citation. The two specific references to ‘‘29 U.S.C. 794’’ are removed and replaced with one reference to the statute in the central authority citation to avoid redundancy. The reference to ‘‘42 U.S.C. 6101’’ is revised to ‘‘42 U.S.C. 6101 through 6107’’ to properly cite to the entirety of Title III of the Age Discrimination Act. Remove from citation. The reference to ‘‘29 U.S.C. 706(6)’’ is removed because it is a typographical error. 10 CFR Part 7 Revise citation. The reference to ‘‘5 U.S.C. App.’’ is revised to ‘‘5 U.S.C. Appendix (Federal Advisory Committee Act)’’ for properly cite to the correct portion of this appendix in the U.S. Code. 10 CFR Part 11 Lhorne on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES Add to citation. A reference to ‘‘Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 223’’ is added to provide authority for the ‘‘Criminal penalties’’ section. 10 CFR Part 13 Revise citation. The reference to ‘‘Sections 13.13(a) and (b)’’ is revised to ‘‘Section 13.13’’ to shorten and simplify the authority citation. Add to citation. A reference to ‘‘31 U.S.C. 3730’’ is added to the specific VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:17 Sep 08, 2015 Jkt 235001 authority citation for Section 13.13 because the statute is explicitly referenced and relied upon in that section. 10 CFR Part 14 Revise citation. The reference to ‘‘Government Paperwork Elimination Act’’ is removed and replaced with ‘‘Atomic Energy Act of 1954’’ to correct a citation error. Add to citation. A reference to ‘‘Energy Reorganization Act of 1974, sec. 201 (42 U.S.C. 5841)’’ is added. The Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 abolished the Atomic Energy Commission and created the NRC, and transferred all licensing and related regulatory functions from the former to the latter including the authority to conduct rulemaking under Section 161 of the Atomic Energy Act. Therefore, in any authority citation section that includes Section 161 of the Atomic Energy Act, it is appropriate to also include Section 201 of the Energy Reorganization Act to reflect this transfer. 10 CFR Part 19 Remove from citation. The reference to ‘‘Atomic Energy Act of 1954 sec. 186 (42 U.S.C. 2236)’’ is removed because it is redundant. Section 186 authorizes the Commission to revoke licenses. The NRC already references Section 186 as authority in 10 CFR parts that provide for the issuance of licenses. References to Section 186 in all 10 CFR parts within which a violation could possibly result in a license revocation is redundant, given that the 10 CFR parts that provide for the issuance of licenses already inform applicants and licensees that their licenses may be revoked for the reasons listed in Section 186, including, in part, for failure to observe any of the terms and provisions of the Atomic Energy Act or the Commission’s regulations. Add to citation. A reference to ‘‘Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 223’’ is added to provide authority for the ‘‘Criminal penalties’’ section. 10 CFR Part 20 Remove from citation. The reference to ‘‘Atomic Energy Act of 1954 sec. 186 (42 U.S.C. 2236)’’ is removed because it is redundant. Section 186 authorizes the Commission to revoke licenses. The NRC already references Section 186 as authority in 10 CFR parts that provide for the issuance of licenses. References to Section 186 in all 10 CFR parts within which a violation could possibly result in a license revocation is redundant, given that the 10 CFR parts that provide for the issuance of licenses PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 54225 already inform applicants and licensees that their licenses may be revoked for the reasons listed in Section 186, including, in part, for failure to observe any of the terms and provisions of the Atomic Energy Act or the Commission’s regulations. The reference to ‘‘Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 sec. 206 (42 U.S.C. 5846)’’ is removed. Section 206 requires individual directors or responsible officers of firms constructing, owning, operating, or supplying components for any facility or activity licensed or regulated by the NRC to report defects or failures to comply that may create substantial safety hazards. Part 20 of 10 CFR establishes the standards for protection against ionizing radiation resulting from activities conducted under licenses issued by the NRC. While a defect or failure to comply under Section 206 could result in a violation of 10 CFR part 20 standards, the substantive authority for the promulgation of 10 CFR part 20 is the Atomic Energy Act. 10 CFR Part 21 Add to citation. References to Atomic Energy Act of 1954, secs. 53, 63, 81, 103, and 104 (42 U.S.C. 2073, 2093, 2111, 2133, and 2134) are added. These statutes provide the Commission with authority to license special nuclear material, source material, byproduct material, commercial utilization or production facilities, and utilization facilities for use in medical therapy and research and development, respectively. These statutes also authorize the Commission to issue these licenses subject to such conditions that the Commission may establish by rule or regulation. Part 21 of 10 CFR applies to facilities and activities licensed under other 10 CFR parts that are authorized by these statutes (including but not limited to 10 CFR parts 30, 40, 50, 52, and 70). Therefore, including these statutes within the 10 CFR part 21 authority citation provides a more complete illustration of the Commission’s authority to subject various licensees to 10 CFR part 21. 10 CFR Part 26 Remove from citation. The references to ‘‘Atomic Energy Act of 1954 sec. 81’’ and ‘‘42 U.S.C. 2112’’ are removed because these sections are inapplicable to this part. The reference to ‘‘Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 sec. 206 (42 U.S.C. 5846)’’ is removed. Section 206 requires individual directors or responsible officers of firms constructing, owning, operating, or supplying components for any facility E:\FR\FM\09SER1.SGM 09SER1 54226 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 174 / Wednesday, September 9, 2015 / Rules and Regulations or activity licensed or regulated by the NRC to report defects or failures to comply that may create substantial safety hazards. Part 26 of 10 CFR establishes the requirements and standards for establishing, implementing, and maintaining a fitness for duty program. While the same licensed activity can be subject to both 10 CFR part 26 fitness for duty requirements and Section 206 reporting requirements, the substantive authority for the promulgation of 10 CFR part 26 is the Atomic Energy Act. The NRC is now referencing Section 206 only in the authority citations of the 10 CFR parts listed in § 21.2, ‘‘Scope.’’ Lhorne on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES 10 CFR Part 30 Remove from citation. The reference to ‘‘Atomic Energy Act of 1954 sec. 82 (42 U.S.C. 2112)’’ is removed. Section 82 provides authority for the foreign distribution of byproduct material. However, 10 CFR part 30 applies to domestic licensing. Section 82 is instead appropriately referenced in 10 CFR part 110, ‘‘Export and import of nuclear equipment and material.’’ 10 CFR Parts 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, and 36 Remove from citation. The reference to ‘‘42 U.S.C. 2014’’ is removed. Section 2014 (Section 11 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954) was added to the authority citation as part of the citation to Section 651(e) of the EPAct. The EPAct amended the definition of byproduct material in the Atomic Energy Act; however this revised definition of byproduct material is incorporated into the definitions of 10 CFR part 30, which encompasses licensees under these parts. Part 30 of 10 CFR already references 42 U.S.C. 2014 as authority. Therefore, it is redundant to cite to the statute in these parts. Similarly, the reference to ‘‘42 U.S.C. 2021b’’ is removed from these parts. This section (Section 2 of the Low-Level Radioactive Waste Policy Amendments Act of 1985) was also added to the authority citation as part of the citation to Section 651(e) of the EPAct, and is unnecessary in the authority citation for these parts. The reference to ‘‘42 U.S.C. 5842’’ in 10 CFR part 35 is removed because this is a typographical error. The reference to ‘‘Atomic Energy Act of 1954 sec. 82 (42 U.S.C. 2112)’’ in 10 CFR part 36 is removed because Section 82 authorizes the foreign distribution of byproduct material and is inapplicable to this part. The reference to ‘‘Atomic Energy Act of 1954 sec. 186 (42 U.S.C. 2236)’’ in 10 CFR part 36 is removed because it is redundant. This section authorizes the Commission to revoke licenses. However, 10 CFR part 36 VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:17 Sep 08, 2015 Jkt 235001 licensees are subject to the provisions of 10 CFR part 30, which already states that a license issued under 10 CFR parts 31 through 36 and 39 may be revoked (10 CFR 30.61), and the authority citation for 10 CFR part 30 already includes Section 186. Lastly, the reference to ‘‘Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 sec. 202 is (42 U.S.C. 5842)’’ in 10 CFR part 36 is removed because the statute is inapplicable to this part. Add to citation. A reference to ‘‘Energy Reorganization Act of 1974, sec. 206 (42 U.S.C. 5846)’’ is added to 10 CFR part 31. Section 206 provides authority for 10 CFR part 21. The general license provided in § 31.8 is subject to the provisions of 10 CFR part 21. 10 CFR Part 37 Add to citation. A reference to ‘‘Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 11 (42 U.S.C. 2014)’’ is added. Section 11 is being added in order to be consistent with other parts of 10 CFR that have similarly incorporated the definition of ‘‘byproduct material,’’ as revised by the EPAct, that provides the Commission authority to determine new sources of byproduct material if statutory criteria are met. References to Energy Reorganization Act of 1974, secs. 201 and 202 (42 U.S.C. 5841 and 5842) are added. The Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 abolished the Atomic Energy Commission and created the NRC, and transferred all licensing and related regulatory functions from the former to the latter including the authority to conduct rulemaking under Section 161 of the Atomic Energy Act. Therefore, in any authority citation section that includes Section 161 of the Atomic Energy Act, it is appropriate to also include Section 201 of the Energy Reorganization Act to reflect this transfer. A reference to ‘‘Section 202’’ is added because 10 CFR part 37 applies to the facilities listed in that statute if the licensee possesses an aggregated category 1 or category 2 quantity of radioactive material. This is reflected in the definition of ‘‘Person’’ in 10 CFR 37.5. A reference to ‘‘44 U.S.C. 3504 note’’ is added because 10 CFR part 37 provides for the use of electronic submissions, as authorized by the Government Paperwork Elimination Act. 10 CFR Part 39 Remove from citation. The reference to ‘‘Atomic Energy Act of 1954 sec. 82 (42 U.S.C. 2112)’’ is removed because this section authorizes the foreign PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 distribution of byproduct material and is inapplicable to this part. The reference to ‘‘Atomic Energy Act of 1954 sec. 186 (42 U.S.C. 2236)’’ is removed because it is redundant. Section 186 authorizes the Commission to revoke licenses. However, 10 CFR part 39 licensees are subject to the provisions of 10 CFR part 30, which already states that a license issued under 10 CFR parts 31 through 36 and 39 may be revoked (10 CFR 30.61), and the authority citation for 10 CFR part 30 already includes Section 186. The reference to ‘‘Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 sec. 202’’ is removed because it is inapplicable to this part. 10 CFR Part 40 Add to citation. A reference to ‘‘Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 69 (42 U.S.C. 2099)’’ is added. Section 69 prohibits the Commission from licensing the transfer, delivery, receipt possession or title, or import or export of source material if the Commission determines issuance of such a license would be inimical to the common defense and security or the health and safety of the public. This prohibition is incorporated into the general requirements located in 10 CFR 40.32(d). References to Atomic Energy Act of 1954, secs. 83 and 84 are added because the corresponding U.S.C. citations (42 U.S.C. 2113, 2114, respectively) are already included in the central authority citation. A reference to ‘‘Uranium Mill Tailings Radiation Control Act of 1978, sec. 104 (42 U.S.C. 7914)’’ is added to correct an inadvertent omission. A citation to this Act is appropriate because the Uranium Mill Tailings and Radiation Control Act of 1978 (UMTRCA) addresses the longterm surveillance and monitoring of Title I and Title II uranium mill tailings disposal sites. Title I sites are processing sites that were generally not subject to a specific NRC license. Under Section 104 (42 U.S.C. 7914) of UMTRCA, the NRC is authorized to impose a license on any entity, including the U.S. Department of Energy, that acquires title to or leases all or any portion of a Title I site. Title II sites are licensed under the NRC’s Atomic Energy Act, Section 83 authority, which is already included in the authority citation for this part. Remove from citation. The reference to ‘‘Atomic Energy Act of 1954 sec. 11(e)(2) (42 U.S.C. 2014(e)(2))’’ is removed because this subsection does not substantively grant authority to the NRC, but simply defines uranium mill tailings and waste as source material. Authority to license source material is E:\FR\FM\09SER1.SGM 09SER1 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 174 / Wednesday, September 9, 2015 / Rules and Regulations found in other provisions of the Atomic Energy Act, which are already included in the authority citation. Lhorne on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES 10 CFR Part 50 Add to citation. A reference to ‘‘Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 187 (42 U.S.C. 2237)’’ is added. Section 187 provides that the terms and conditions of all licenses shall be subject to amendment, revision, or modification, by reason of amendments of the Atomic Energy Act, or by reason of rules and regulations issued in accordance with the Atomic Energy Act. This statutory condition is incorporated within 10 CFR 50.54. A reference to ‘‘Sec. 109, Pub. L. 96– 295, 94 Stat. 783’’ is added to the general citation for 10 CFR part 50. This law, which was not codified in the U.S.C., directed the NRC to take certain actions regarding emergency preparedness and power reactor operating license issuances, which are now reflected in 10 CFR part 50. Remove from citation. References to Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 secs. 203 and 204 (42 U.S.C. 5843 and 5844) are removed. These statutes created the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation and the Office of Nuclear Material Safety and Safeguards, respectively. While these offices have responsibilities under 10 CFR part 50, in order to maintain consistency with the rest of 10 CFR, the NRC is no longer citing statutes creating individual offices outside of 10 CFR part 1, ‘‘Statement of organization and general information.’’ These statutory delegations of authority overlap with the Commission’s already existing authority to delegate responsibilities to officers of the agency under Section 161 of the Atomic Energy Act. 10 CFR Part 51 Remove from citation. References to Atomic Energy Act secs. 274 and 1701 (42 U.S.C. 2021 and 2297f) are removed. Section 274 provides the Commission with authority for the Agreement State program and Section 1701 provides the Commission with authority to regulate gaseous diffusion uranium enrichment facilities. While these statutes are referenced within the categorical exclusions of 10 CFR 51.22, they do not provide substantive authority with respect to 10 CFR part 51. The reference to ‘‘Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 sec. 211 (42 U.S.C. 5851)’’ is removed because this section is inapplicable to this part. There are no Employee Protection regulations in 10 CFR part 51. The reference to ‘‘Pub. L. 95–604, Title II, 92 Stat. 3033–3041’’ is removed. VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:17 Sep 08, 2015 Jkt 235001 This citation refers to Title II of UMTRCA, which amended Atomic Energy Act of 1954, secs. 11, 83, 84, 161, 274, 275. All of these statutes are either already included in the central authority citation or do not provide substantive authority for 10 CFR part 51, which is the NRC’s implementation of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA). Although 10 CFR part 51 is consistent with UMTRCA, it does not provide substantive authority for the part. 10 CFR Part 52 Add to citation. A reference to ‘‘42 U.S.C. 2231’’ is added because the corresponding reference to Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 181 is already included in the central authority citation. 10 CFR Part 54 Add to citation. A reference to ‘‘Energy Reorganization Act of 1974, sec. 206’’ is added because the corresponding U.S.C. citation (42 U.S.C. 5846) is already included in the central authority citation. Remove from citation. The reference to ‘‘42 U.S.C. 2135’’ is removed because it is a typographical error. 10 CFR Part 55 Add to citation. A reference to ‘‘Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 183 (42 U.S.C. 2233)’’ is added. Section 183 provides the Commission with authority to prescribe the form, terms, and conditions of licenses by rule or regulation. 10 CFR Part 60 Remove from citation. The reference to the EPAct (‘‘Energy Policy Act of 2005, Public Law 109–58, 119 Stat. 594 (2005)’’) is removed. The EPAct was first added to the 10 CFR part 60 citation in a 2008 rulemaking that modified the requirements for the protection of Safeguards Information (SGI) (73 FR 63546; October 24, 2008). Specifically, the EPAct amended section 149 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 to require fingerprinting for a broader class of persons before granting them access to SGI. Section 60.42 of 10 CFR states that licensees shall protect SGI against unauthorized disclosure in accordance with the requirements in 10 CFR part 73; the authority citation for 10 CFR part 73 includes the appropriate citation to Section 149 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954. Therefore, rather than convert the citation from the EPAct to Section 149 of the Atomic Energy Act, the NRC is removing the citation altogether because it is redundant. PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 54227 10 CFR Part 61 Remove from citation. The reference to ‘‘42 U.S.C. 2021a’’ is removed because the action described in this section of a 1979 appropriations bill no longer applies to the NRC. The reference to ‘‘Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 sec. 202 (42 U.S.C. 5842)’’ is removed because this section is inapplicable to this part, as land disposal facilities are not listed among the facilities in the statute. 10 CFR Part 62 Add to citation. A reference to ‘‘LowLevel Radioactive Waste Policy Amendments Act of 1985, sec. 6 (42 U.S.C. 2021f)’’ is added because the statute provides direct authority for the regulations in 10 CFR part 62. Remove from citation. The references to Atomic Energy Act of 1954 secs. 81 and 274 (42 U.S.C. 2021) are removed. Part 62 of 10 CFR concerns criteria and procedures for emergency access to certain low-level waste disposal facilities. Section 81 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 provides the Commission with authority to license byproduct material, and Section 274 provides authority for the Agreement States program. Both statutes are relevant in the context of the regulation of low-level waste disposal facilities, but neither provide substantive authority for the promulgation of 10 CFR part 62. The reference to ‘‘Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 sec 209 (42 U.S.C. 5849)’’ is removed from the general citation. Section 209 establishes the office of the Executive Director for Operations. As previously stated, the NRC is only citing to such organizational statutes in 10 CFR part 1, ‘‘Statement of organization and general information.’’ 10 CFR Part 63 Add to citation. References to Atomic Energy Act of 1954, secs. 223 and 234 (42 U.S.C. 2273 and 2282) are added because these statutes provide authority for the ‘‘Criminal Penalties’’ and ‘‘Violations’’ sections, respectively, of 10 CFR part 63, subpart J. Remove from citation. The reference to the EPAct (‘‘Energy Policy Act of 2005, Public Law 109–58, 119 Stat. 594 (2005)’’) is removed. The EPAct was first added to the 10 CFR part 63 citation in a 2008 rulemaking that modified the requirements for the protection of SGI (73 FR 63,546; Oct. 24, 2008). Specifically, the EPAct amended Section 149 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 to require fingerprinting for a broader class of persons before granting E:\FR\FM\09SER1.SGM 09SER1 54228 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 174 / Wednesday, September 9, 2015 / Rules and Regulations them access to SGI. Section 63.42 of 10 CFR states that licensees shall protect SGI against unauthorized disclosure in accordance with the requirements in 10 CFR part 73; the authority citation for 10 CFR part 73 includes the appropriate citation to Section 149 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954. Therefore, rather than convert the citation from the EPAct to Section 149 of the Atomic Energy Act, the NRC is removing the citation altogether because it is redundant. Lhorne on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES 10 CFR Part 70 Add to citation. A reference to ‘‘Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 1701’’ is added because the central authority citation already refers to the corresponding U.S.C. citation (42 U.S.C. 2297f). Remove from citation. The reference to ‘‘Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 sec. 204’’ is removed (the corresponding U.S.C. citation erroneously refers to ‘‘42 U.S.C. 5845,’’ which is also removed). Section 204 establishes the Office of Nuclear Material Safety and Safeguards (NMSS) and provides a list of functions the Office shall perform as delegated by the Commission. While NMSS does perform functions within 10 CFR part 70, this authority largely overlaps with the Commission’s already existing authority to delegate functions to other officers under Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 161 (42 U.S.C. 2201). As previously stated, the NRC is only citing to statutes creating individual NRC offices within 10 CFR part 1, ‘‘Statement of Organization and General Information.’’ Remove from citation. The reference to the EPAct (‘‘Energy Policy Act of 2005, Public Law 109–58, 119 Stat. 594 (2005)’’) is removed. The EPAct was first added to the 10 CFR part 70 citation in a 2008 rulemaking that modified the requirements for the protection of SGI (73 FR 63,546; October 24, 2008). Specifically, the EPAct amended Section 149 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 to require fingerprinting for a broader class of persons before granting them access to SGI. Section 70.32 of 10 CFR states that licensees shall protect SGI against unauthorized disclosure in accordance with the requirements in 10 CFR part 73; the authority citation for 10 CFR part 73 includes the appropriate citation to Section 149 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954. Therefore, rather than convert the citation from the EPAct to Section 149 of the Atomic Energy Act, the NRC is removing the citation altogether because it is redundant. VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:17 Sep 08, 2015 Jkt 235001 10 CFR Part 71 Remove from citation. The reference to the EPAct (‘‘Energy Policy Act of 2005, Public Law 109–58, 119 Stat. 594 (2005)’’) is removed. The EPAct was first added to the 10 CFR part 71 citation in a 2008 rulemaking that modified the requirements for the protection of SGI (73 FR 63,546; October 24, 2008). Specifically, the EPAct amended Section 149 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 to require fingerprinting for a broader class of persons before granting them access to SGI. Section 71.11 of 10 CFR states that licensees shall protect SGI against unauthorized disclosure in accordance with the requirements in 10 CFR part 73; the authority citation for 10 CFR part 73 includes the appropriate citation to Section 149 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954. Therefore, rather than convert the citation from the EPAct to Section 149 of the Atomic Energy Act, the NRC is removing the citation altogether because it is redundant. 10 CFR Part 72 Remove from citation. The references to the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982 secs. 131 and 142(b) (42 U.S.C. 10151 and 10162(b)) are removed because they do not provide substantive authority to the NRC. Section 131 is a Congressional declaration of the ‘‘Findings and Purposes’’ behind the Interim Storage Program found in Subtitle B of the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982. The Commission’s substantive authority to regulate interim storage of spent nuclear fuel is located elsewhere in the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982. Section 142(b) authorizes the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Energy to site, construct, and operate a monitored retrievable storage facility. The NRC’s authority to license such a facility derives from Energy Reorganization Act of 1974, sec. 202 and Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982, sec. 148, both of which are already included in the general citation. The reference to the EPAct (‘‘Energy Policy Act of 2005, Public Law 109–58, 119 Stat. 594 (2005)’’) is removed. The EPAct was first added to the 10 CFR part 72 citation in a 2008 rulemaking that modified the requirements for the protection of SGI (73 FR 63,546; October 24, 2008). Specifically, the EPAct amended Section 149 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 to require fingerprinting for a broader class of persons before granting them access to SGI. Sections 72.44 and 72.212 of 10 CFR state that licensees shall protect SGI against unauthorized disclosure in accordance with the requirements in 10 CFR part 73; the authority citation for 10 PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 CFR part 73 includes the appropriate citation to Section 149 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954. Therefore, rather than convert the citation from the EPAct to Section 149 of the Atomic Energy Act, the NRC is removing the citation altogether because it is redundant. 10 CFR Part 73 Add to citation. A reference to ‘‘Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 149’’ is added because the central authority citation already includes a reference to the accompanying U.S.C. citation (42 U.S.C. 2169). A reference to Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 sec. 202 (42 U.S.C. 5842) is added because the scope of part 73 includes the Department of Energy facilities listed in that statute. Remove from citation. The reference to ‘‘Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 sec. 204 (42 U.S.C. 5844)’’ is removed. Section 204 establishes NMSS and provides a list of functions the office shall perform as delegated by the Commission. While NMSS does perform functions within 10 CFR part 73, this authority largely overlaps with the Commission’s already existing authority to delegate functions to other officers under Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 161 (42 U.S.C. 2201). As previously stated, the NRC is only citing to statutes creating individual NRC offices within 10 CFR part 1, ‘‘Statement of Organization and General Information.’’ The reference to ‘‘42 U.S.C. 2210(e)’’ in the string of Atomic Energy Act of 1954 citations is removed because this is a typographical error. The correct citation to ‘‘42 U.S.C. 2210e’’ is now included. 10 CFR Part 74 Remove from citation. The reference to ‘‘Atomic Energy Act of 1954 sec. 183 (42 U.S.C. 2233)’’ is removed. Section 183 provides the Commission with authority to prescribe the form, terms, and conditions of licenses by rule or regulation. Part 74 of 10 CFR contains requirements for licensees but does not provide for the issuance of licenses. The parts of 10 CFR that do provide for the issuance of licenses that are subject to 10 CFR part 74 (e.g., 10 CFR part 70) already reference Section 183 as authority. Therefore, it is redundant to cite to Section 183 in parts that do not provide for the issuance of licenses. The reference to ‘‘Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 sec. 206 (42 U.S.C. 5846)’’ is removed. Section 206 requires individual directors or responsible officers of firms constructing, owning, operating, or supplying components for any facility or activity licensed or regulated by the E:\FR\FM\09SER1.SGM 09SER1 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 174 / Wednesday, September 9, 2015 / Rules and Regulations NRC to report defects or failures to comply that may create substantial safety hazards. Part 74 of 10 CFR establishes control and accounting requirements for licensees of special nuclear material. While the same licensed activity can be subject to both 10 CFR part 74 control and accounting requirements and Section 206 reporting requirements, the Atomic Energy Act is the substantive authority for the promulgation of 10 CFR part 74. Lhorne on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES 10 CFR Part 75 Add to citation. A reference to ‘‘Nuclear Waste Policy Act, sec. 141’’ is added because the central authority citation already includes a reference to the accompanying U.S.C. citation (42 U.S.C. 10161). A reference to ‘‘Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 1701 (42 U.S.C. 2297f)’’ is added because 10 CFR part 75 imposes requirements on certificate holders for gaseous diffusion plants. 10 CFR Part 76 Remove from citation. The reference to Atomic Energy Act of 1954 sec. 1312 (42 U.S.C. 2297b–11) is removed because this section of the Act has been repealed. The reference to ‘‘Energy Reorganization Act sec. 204’’ is removed (the accompanying U.S.C. reference, which erroneously cites ‘‘42 U.S.C. 5842,’’ is also removed). Section 204 creates NMSS and provides a list of functions the office shall perform as delegated by the Commission. While NMSS does perform functions within 10 CFR part 76, this authority largely overlaps with the Commission’s already existing authority to delegate functions to other officers under Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 161 (42 U.S.C. 2201). As previously stated, the NRC is only citing to statutes creating individual NRC offices within 10 CFR part 1, ‘‘Statement of Organization and General Information.’’ The reference to the EPAct (‘‘Energy Policy Act of 2005, Public Law 109–58, 119 Stat. 594 (2005)’’) is removed. The EPAct was first added to the 10 CFR part 76 citation in a 2008 rulemaking that modified the requirements for the protection of SGI (73 FR 63546; October 24, 2008). Specifically, the EPAct amended Section 149 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 to require fingerprinting for a broader class of persons before granting them access to SGI. Subpart E of 10 CFR part 76 states that the requirements to protect SGI against unauthorized disclosure are located in 10 CFR part 73; the authority citation for 10 CFR part 73 includes the appropriate citation to Section 149 of VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:17 Sep 08, 2015 Jkt 235001 the Atomic Energy Act of 1954. Therefore, rather than convert the citation from the EPAct to Section 149 of the Atomic Energy Act, the NRC is removing the citation altogether because it is redundant. 10 CFR Part 95 Remove from citation. ‘‘E.O. 13526, 3 CFR, 2010 Comp., pp. 298–327’’ is removed because the same Executive Order is erroneously cited as authority twice. 10 CFR Part 110 Add to citation. References to Atomic Energy Act of 1954, secs. 62 and 124 are added because the central authority citation already includes a reference to the accompanying U.S.C. citation (42 U.S.C. 2092 and 2154, respectively). A reference to ‘‘Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 133 (42 U.S.C. 2160c)’’ is added to the central authority citation because this provides the Commission authority to issue licenses for the export of special nuclear material described within the statute. Amend citation. The ‘‘also issued under’’ citations for the various paragraphs of Section 110(b) have been consolidated into one ‘‘also issued under citation.’’ A reference to ‘‘50 App. U.S.C. 2401 et seq.’’ is added to provide further statutory authority for export license exceptions under the Export Administration Act regulations overseen by the U.S. Department of Commerce. A reference to ‘‘22 U.S.C. 2778a’’ is also added to provide citation to the proper authorizing statute for the exception listed in this section. References to ‘‘42 U.S.C. 2139a’’ and ‘‘42 U.S.C. 2155a’’ are being removed from the string of Atomic Energy Act of 1954 citations and included as separate citations in the central authority citation. Sections 2139a and 2155a were enacted as part of the Nuclear NonProliferation Act of 1978, and not part of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954. Remove from citation. The reference to Section 554 of the Administrative Procedure Act, which contains the requirements for on-the-record hearings, is removed from the additional citation to §§ 110.80–110.113 because 42 U.S.C. 2155a provides that, notwithstanding Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 189, an on-the-record hearing is not required for export license proceedings. Therefore, that section does not provide authority for §§ 110.80–110.113. 10 CFR Part 150 Add to citation. A reference to ‘‘Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 274’’ is added because the central authority citation already includes a reference to PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 54229 the accompanying U.S.C. citation (42 U.S.C. 2021). Similarly, a reference to ‘‘Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982, sec. 141’’ is added because the central authority citation already includes a reference to the accompanying U.S.C. citation (42 U.S.C. 10161). Remove from citation. The reference to ‘‘Atomic Energy Act of 1954 sec. 11(e)(2) (42 U.S.C. 2014(e)(2))’’ is removed because this subsection does not substantively grant authority to the NRC, but simply defines uranium mill tailings and waste as source material. Authority to license source material is found in other provisions of the Atomic Energy Act, which are already included in the authority citation. 10 CFR Part 171 Remove from citation. The reference to ‘‘42 U.S.C. 2213’’ is removed because it was repealed in 2006 by Section 637 of the EPAct. III. Rulemaking Procedure Under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553(b)), an agency may waive the normal notice and comments requirements if it finds, for good cause, that they are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. The NRC finds that notice and comment for these amendments are unnecessary because the changes made in this rulemaking are non-substantive formatting edits or corrective changes to typographical errors and inadvertent omissions to authority citations. No substantive text in the regulations is being amended. These amendments require no action by any person or entity regulated by the NRC, nor do they alter any substantive rights, responsibilities, or obligations. Soliciting public comments on these changes would not affect the scope and nature of the revisions because they must reflect the current legal authority that provides a basis for the Commission’s regulations. Therefore, the NRC finds good cause that notice and comment is unnecessary, and is exercising its authority under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) to publish these amendments as a final rule without the opportunity for public comment. Furthermore, for the reasons previously stated, the NRC finds, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), that good cause exists to make this rule effective upon publication. IV. Environmental Impact: Categorical Exclusion The NRC has determined that this final rule is the type of action described in categorical exclusion 10 CFR 51.22(c)(2), which excludes from a major action rules that are corrective or E:\FR\FM\09SER1.SGM 09SER1 54230 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 174 / Wednesday, September 9, 2015 / Rules and Regulations of a minor or nonpolicy nature and do not substantially modify existing regulations. Therefore, neither an environmental impact statement nor an environmental assessment has been prepared for this rule. V. Paperwork Reduction Act Statement This final rule does not contain information collection requirements and, therefore, is not subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). 5 CFR Part 5801 10 CFR Part 14 Conflict of interests, Government employees.

L. 111–274) requires Federal agencies to write documents in a clear, concise, and 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). 10 CFR Part 4 10 CFR Part 20 Administrative practice and procedure, Aged, Blind, Buildings, Civil rights, Employment, Equal employment opportunity, Federal aid programs, Federal buildings and facilities, Grant programs, Handicapped, Individuals with disabilities, Loan programs, Reporting and recordkeeping requirements, Sex discrimination. VII. Backfitting and Issue Finality The NRC has determined that the administrative changes in the final rule do not constitute backfitting and are not inconsistent with any of the issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52, and therefore a backfit analysis is not included. The revisions are administrative in nature, including revisions to authority citation formatting and typographical corrections. They impose no new requirements and make no substantive changes to the regulations. The revisions do not involve any provisions that would impose backfits as defined in 10 CFR chapter I, or would be inconsistent with the issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52. For these reasons, the issuance of the rule in final form would not constitute backfitting or represent an inconsistency with any of the issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52. Therefore, the NRC has not prepared any additional documentation for this rulemaking addressing backfitting or issue finality. 10 CFR Part 7 Byproduct material, Criminal penalties, Hazardous waste, Licensed material, Nuclear energy, Nuclear materials, Nuclear power plants and reactors, Occupational safety and health, Packaging and containers, Penalties, Radiation protection, Reporting and recordkeeping requirements, Source material, Special nuclear material, Waste treatment and disposal.

AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the operation of the T-Bois bridge, a vertical lift-span bridge across Lafourche Bayou, mile 40.4, at Larose, Louisiana. The deviation is necessary in order to allow for the smooth flow of increased vehicular traffic caused by the temporary closure of the LA 1 bridge across the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway. This deviation PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 allows the bridge to open on signal for the passage of traffic if at least one-hour advanced notification is given during the morning and evening rush hours. DATES: This deviation is effective without actual notice from September 9, 2015 through November 30, 2015. For the purposes of enforcement, actual notice will be used from September 2, 2015 until September 9, 2015. ADDRESSES: The docket for this deviation, [USCG–2015–0864] is available at http://www.regulations.gov. Type the docket number in the ‘‘SEARCH’’ box and click ‘‘SEARCH.’’ Click on Open Docket Folder on the line associated with this deviation. You may also visit the Docket Management Facility in Room W12–140 on the ground floor of the Department of Transportation West Building, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., Washington, DC 20590, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: If you have questions on this temporary deviation, call or email David Frank, Bridge Administration Branch, Coast Guard; telephone 504–671–2128, email David.M.Frank@uscg.mil. If you have questions on viewing the docket, call Cheryl F. Collins, Program Manager, Docket Operations, telephone 202–366– 9826. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development has closed the LA 1 vertical lift bridge (on the west side of Lafourche Bayou) across the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, mile 35.6, at Larose, Louisiana to vehicular traffic for repairs to the bridge. The bridge will be closed to vehicular traffic until November 30, 2015. As a result of this closure, all vehicular traffic wishing to transit north or south in Lafourche Parish must do so using LA 308 on the east side of Lafourche Bayou. Much of the vehicular traffic must cross the TBois bridge across Lafourche Bayou to accomplish this transit. The increase in vehicular traffic across the T-Bois bridge has caused a previously unforeseen traffic jam during the morning and afternoon rush hours. To help alleviate this traffic issue, the Lafourche Parish Government has requested that vessel traffic be limited during the morning and evening rush hours. As part of this discussion, it was determined that from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. and from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, the T-Bois bridge across Lafourche Bayou will open on signal if at least one-hour advanced notification is given. Mariners may request an opening during the time by contacting the bridge tender at 985– E:\FR\FM\09SER1.SGM 09SER1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Introduction

    Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act states that when an 
agency issues notice of a proposed rulemaking, the agency must include 
``reference to the legal authority under which the rule is proposed'' 
(5 U.S.C. 553). The OFR has published regulations in Chapter I of Title 
1 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) explaining how authority 
citations should be formatted in the CFR when final rules are codified 
(1 CFR part 21). The OFR also provides guidance on the proper 
formatting of statutory and nonstatutory authority citations in its 
Federal Register Document Drafting Handbook (October 1998 Revision).\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See http://www.archives.gov/federal-register/write/handbook/ddh.pdf.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The NRC is amending its regulations in Chapter I of 10 CFR; Chapter 
XX of 2 CFR, the NRC's policies and procedures for nonprocurement 
debarment and suspension; and Chapter XLVIII of 5 CFR, the supplemental 
standards of ethical conduct for NRC employees; to better conform to 
the OFR's regulations and guidance for the formatting of authority 
citations. These non-substantive formatting amendments will shorten the 
NRC's authority citation sections and provide the public with clearer 
and simpler references to the NRC's statutory and nonstatutory 
authority. The NRC is also making certain corrections and amendments to 
the authority citations of these regulations to fix typographical 
errors, add missing authority citations, or remove redundant authority 
citations. This rulemaking is corrective in nature and only serves to 
reformat or clarify already-existing NRC authority citations. This rule 
does not create any new requirements for NRC stakeholders, nor does it 
alter any existing right, obligation, or prohibition for persons or 
entities regulated by the NRC.

II. Summary of Changes

    The amendments made in this rule are divided into two categories: 
Generic formatting changes and part-specific corrections. The generic 
formatting changes are described in this section, with a list of every 
CFR part subject to each generic formatting change. Amendments made in 
this rule that do not fall within the scope of the generic formatting 
changes are discussed in the part-specific technical corrections 
section. Such changes are identified within each part with a 
description of the reason for the change.

A. Generic Formatting Changes

    (1) Formatting of authority citations for NRC Significant Statutes. 
The OFR's guidance states that statutory authority citations should 
only use the United States Code (U.S.C.) citation and not the popular 
name of a public law (e.g., ``Atomic Energy Act of 1954''). However, 
the NRC has historically cited to sections of the agency's organic 
statutes by popular name, as well as other significant statutes by 
popular name, in addition to the U.S.C. citation. The NRC's 
stakeholders are more familiar with these references than their 
accompanying U.S.C. citations. The NRC has received permission from the 
OFR to cite to the seven significant statutes identified in Table 1 of 
this document by the statute's popular name as well as the U.S.C. 
citation (ADAMS Accession No. ML14265A100). These citations will now 
include the popular name of the statute (derived from the Popular Names 
Tool of the Office of the Law Revision Counsel, U.S. House of 
Representatives) \2\ followed by the

[[Page 54224]]

applicable sections of the statute as codified in the U.S.C.

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

    The following CFR parts are being amended consistent with this 
generic formatting change: 5 CFR part 5801; 10 CFR parts 1, 2, 4, 7, 9, 
10, 11, 14, 15, 16, 19, 20, 21, 25, 26, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 
39, 40, 50, 51, 52, 54, 55, 60, 61, 62, 63 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 
81, 95, 100, 110, 140, 150, 160, 170, and 171.
    (2) Removing popular names and public law numbers of non-
significant statutes. All authority citations with references to the 
popular names of statutes not listed in Table 1 of this document are 
revised to cite only the appropriate U.S.C. section, in conformance 
with OFR guidance. For example, all citations to the ``Government 
Paperwork Elimination Act,'' which provided agencies with authority to 
accept electronic submissions and signatures as a substitute for paper 
where practicable, is now cited throughout 10 CFR as ``44 U.S.C. 3504 
note.''
    Additionally, all references to public law numbers or U.S. Statutes 
at Large are being removed except where U.S.C. citations do not exist 
(for example, appropriations laws), in conformance with OFR guidance. 
The following CFR parts are being amended consistent with this generic 
formatting change: 5 CFR part 5801; 10 CFR parts 2, 4, 9, 11, 12, 13, 
14, 15, 16, 19, 20, 21, 25, 26, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 39, 40, 50, 
51, 52, 54, 55, 60, 61, 62, 63, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 81, 95, 
100, 110, 140, 150, 170, and 171.
    (3) Relocation of specific ``also issued'' citations for 
significant statutes. The OFR's guidance states that agencies may 
provide authority citations for particular subparts or particular 
sections within the central authority citation for a CFR part (e.g., 
``Section 30.7 also issued under 42 U.S.C. 5851''). However, this 
practice is optional and has in some cases led to lengthy authority 
citation sections that are difficult to read and comprehend. 
Additionally, these specific ``also issued'' citations often restate 
authorities that are already cited for the whole part in the central 
authority citation, making them redundant. In an effort to provide more 
concise and clear authority citations, the NRC is no longer using 
specific ``also issued'' citations that reference any of the 
significant statutes listed in Table 1 of this document. These 
authority citations will be reflected generally in the central 
authority citation. However, the NRC will still use specific ``also 
issued'' citations that reference authorities not listed in Table 1 of 
this document, when appropriate. The NRC's stakeholders are less likely 
to be familiar with such authority, making these specific references 
more beneficial for the public. The following CFR parts are being 
amended consistent with this generic formatting change: 10 CFR parts 2, 
4, 9, 19, 21, 30, 34, 40, 50, 51, 55, 70, 72, 73, 75, 76, 110, and 150.
    (4) Revising or removing all citations to the Energy Policy Act. 
The Energy Policy Act of 2005, Public Law 109-58, 119 Stat. 594 (2005) 
(EPAct) is referenced in authority citations throughout 10 CFR. However 
the EPAct amended certain provisions of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, 
the Energy Reorganization Act of 1974, and the Low-Level Radioactive 
Waste Policy Amendments Act of 1985, among other statutes. The EPAct is 
not in and of itself a substantive organic statute, but instead is 
reflected in the amended portions of other statutes. In many cases 
these statutes already are contained in the authority citation, making 
the reference to the EPAct redundant. Reference to the EPAct is 
inconsistent with OFR guidance, which states that popular names of 
statutes or public law numbers should not be used if the law has been 
codified in the U.S.C. Therefore, consistent with OFR guidance, all 
citations to the EPAct have been converted to the corresponding 
citations of the statute amended by the EPAct, unless the corresponding 
citations are already included within the central authority citation. 
Additionally, citations to the EPAct have been removed entirely in some 
parts, where appropriate; these removals are identified and explained 
in the Section B, ``Part-specific Corrections,'' of this section. The 
following CFR parts are being amended consistent with this generic 
formatting change: 10 CFR parts 20, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 40, 50, 
52, 60, 61, 62, 63, 70, 71, 72, 73, 76, 110, 140, 150, 170, and 171.
    (5) Reformatting citations to Executive Orders. Consistent with OFR 
guidance, authority citations that reference Executive Orders now 
include a Federal Register citation, as well as a CFR citation. Also, 
typographical errors in page numbers are being corrected. Executive 
Orders in the following CFR parts are being amended consistent with 
this generic formatting change: 2 CFR part 2000; 5 CFR part 5801; 10 
CFR parts 10, 15, 25, 54, and 95.

B. Part-Specific Corrections

    The following discussion contains a list of the changes made to 
each authority citation section by this rulemaking that does not fall 
within the scope of the generic changes previously described, and the 
reasons for each change.
2 CFR Part 2000
    Remove from citation. The reference ``10 U.S.C. 113'' is removed. 
Section 113 provides authority to the U.S. Department of Defense, not 
the NRC.
10 CFR Part 1
    Revise citation. The citation ``45 FR 40561, June 16, 1980'' is 
removed and replaced with ``5 U.S.C. Appendix (Reorganization Plans)'' 
to properly cite

[[Page 54225]]

to the correct portion of this appendix in the U.S. Code.
    Add to citation. A reference to ``Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 
25 (42 U.S.C. 2035)'' is added. Section 25 created the Office of the 
General Counsel, which is specifically referenced in 10 CFR part 1.
10 CFR Part 2
    Add to citation. A reference to ``Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 
182 (42 U.S.C. 2232)'' is added. Section 182 provides authority for the 
Commission to require written statements from applicants or licensees 
in order to determine whether an application should be granted or 
denied or whether a license should be modified or revoked, and to 
require such statements to be made under oath or affirmation. This 
section provides authority for 10 CFR 2.204, ``Demand for 
Information.''
    A reference to ``Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 187 (42 U.S.C. 
2237)'' is added. Section 187 provides authority for the Commission to 
modify terms and conditions of all licenses, and provides authority for 
10 CFR part 2, subpart B, ``Procedure for Imposing Requirements by 
Order, or for Modification, Suspension, or Revocation of a License, or 
for Imposing Civil Penalties.''
10 CFR Part 4
    Revise citation. The two specific references to ``29 U.S.C. 794'' 
are removed and replaced with one reference to the statute in the 
central authority citation to avoid redundancy.
    The reference to ``42 U.S.C. 6101'' is revised to ``42 U.S.C. 6101 
through 6107'' to properly cite to the entirety of Title III of the Age 
Discrimination Act.
    Remove from citation. The reference to ``29 U.S.C. 706(6)'' is 
removed because it is a typographical error.
10 CFR Part 7
    Revise citation. The reference to ``5 U.S.C. App.'' is revised to 
``5 U.S.C. Appendix (Federal Advisory Committee Act)'' for properly 
cite to the correct portion of this appendix in the U.S. Code.
10 CFR Part 11
    Add to citation. A reference to ``Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 
223'' is added to provide authority for the ``Criminal penalties'' 
section.
10 CFR Part 13
    Revise citation. The reference to ``Sections 13.13(a) and (b)'' is 
revised to ``Section 13.13'' to shorten and simplify the authority 
citation.
    Add to citation. A reference to ``31 U.S.C. 3730'' is added to the 
specific authority citation for Section 13.13 because the statute is 
explicitly referenced and relied upon in that section.
10 CFR Part 14
    Revise citation. The reference to ``Government Paperwork 
Elimination Act'' is removed and replaced with ``Atomic Energy Act of 
1954'' to correct a citation error.
    Add to citation. A reference to ``Energy Reorganization Act of 
1974, sec. 201 (42 U.S.C. 5841)'' is added. The Energy Reorganization 
Act of 1974 abolished the Atomic Energy Commission and created the NRC, 
and transferred all licensing and related regulatory functions from the 
former to the latter including the authority to conduct rulemaking 
under Section 161 of the Atomic Energy Act. Therefore, in any authority 
citation section that includes Section 161 of the Atomic Energy Act, it 
is appropriate to also include Section 201 of the Energy Reorganization 
Act to reflect this transfer.
10 CFR Part 19
    Remove from citation. The reference to ``Atomic Energy Act of 1954 
sec. 186 (42 U.S.C. 2236)'' is removed because it is redundant. Section 
186 authorizes the Commission to revoke licenses. The NRC already 
references Section 186 as authority in 10 CFR parts that provide for 
the issuance of licenses. References to Section 186 in all 10 CFR parts 
within which a violation could possibly result in a license revocation 
is redundant, given that the 10 CFR parts that provide for the issuance 
of licenses already inform applicants and licensees that their licenses 
may be revoked for the reasons listed in Section 186, including, in 
part, for failure to observe any of the terms and provisions of the 
Atomic Energy Act or the Commission's regulations.
    Add to citation. A reference to ``Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 
223'' is added to provide authority for the ``Criminal penalties'' 
section.
10 CFR Part 20
    Remove from citation. The reference to ``Atomic Energy Act of 1954 
sec. 186 (42 U.S.C. 2236)'' is removed because it is redundant. Section 
186 authorizes the Commission to revoke licenses. The NRC already 
references Section 186 as authority in 10 CFR parts that provide for 
the issuance of licenses. References to Section 186 in all 10 CFR parts 
within which a violation could possibly result in a license revocation 
is redundant, given that the 10 CFR parts that provide for the issuance 
of licenses already inform applicants and licensees that their licenses 
may be revoked for the reasons listed in Section 186, including, in 
part, for failure to observe any of the terms and provisions of the 
Atomic Energy Act or the Commission's regulations.
    The reference to ``Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 sec. 206 (42 
U.S.C. 5846)'' is removed. Section 206 requires individual directors or 
responsible officers of firms constructing, owning, operating, or 
supplying components for any facility or activity licensed or regulated 
by the NRC to report defects or failures to comply that may create 
substantial safety hazards. Part 20 of 10 CFR establishes the standards 
for protection against ionizing radiation resulting from activities 
conducted under licenses issued by the NRC. While a defect or failure 
to comply under Section 206 could result in a violation of 10 CFR part 
20 standards, the substantive authority for the promulgation of 10 CFR 
part 20 is the Atomic Energy Act.
10 CFR Part 21
    Add to citation. References to Atomic Energy Act of 1954, secs. 53, 
63, 81, 103, and 104 (42 U.S.C. 2073, 2093, 2111, 2133, and 2134) are 
added. These statutes provide the Commission with authority to license 
special nuclear material, source material, byproduct material, 
commercial utilization or production facilities, and utilization 
facilities for use in medical therapy and research and development, 
respectively. These statutes also authorize the Commission to issue 
these licenses subject to such conditions that the Commission may 
establish by rule or regulation. Part 21 of 10 CFR applies to 
facilities and activities licensed under other 10 CFR parts that are 
authorized by these statutes (including but not limited to 10 CFR parts 
30, 40, 50, 52, and 70). Therefore, including these statutes within the 
10 CFR part 21 authority citation provides a more complete illustration 
of the Commission's authority to subject various licensees to 10 CFR 
part 21.
10 CFR Part 26
    Remove from citation. The references to ``Atomic Energy Act of 1954 
sec. 81'' and ``42 U.S.C. 2112'' are removed because these sections are 
inapplicable to this part.
    The reference to ``Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 sec. 206 (42 
U.S.C. 5846)'' is removed. Section 206 requires individual directors or 
responsible officers of firms constructing, owning, operating, or 
supplying components for any facility

[[Page 54226]]

or activity licensed or regulated by the NRC to report defects or 
failures to comply that may create substantial safety hazards. Part 26 
of 10 CFR establishes the requirements and standards for establishing, 
implementing, and maintaining a fitness for duty program. While the 
same licensed activity can be subject to both 10 CFR part 26 fitness 
for duty requirements and Section 206 reporting requirements, the 
substantive authority for the promulgation of 10 CFR part 26 is the 
Atomic Energy Act. The NRC is now referencing Section 206 only in the 
authority citations of the 10 CFR parts listed in Sec.  21.2, 
``Scope.''
10 CFR Part 30
    Remove from citation. The reference to ``Atomic Energy Act of 1954 
sec. 82 (42 U.S.C. 2112)'' is removed. Section 82 provides authority 
for the foreign distribution of byproduct material. However, 10 CFR 
part 30 applies to domestic licensing. Section 82 is instead 
appropriately referenced in 10 CFR part 110, ``Export and import of 
nuclear equipment and material.''
10 CFR Parts 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, and 36
    Remove from citation. The reference to ``42 U.S.C. 2014'' is 
removed. Section 2014 (Section 11 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954) was 
added to the authority citation as part of the citation to Section 
651(e) of the EPAct. The EPAct amended the definition of byproduct 
material in the Atomic Energy Act; however this revised definition of 
byproduct material is incorporated into the definitions of 10 CFR part 
30, which encompasses licensees under these parts. Part 30 of 10 CFR 
already references 42 U.S.C. 2014 as authority. Therefore, it is 
redundant to cite to the statute in these parts. Similarly, the 
reference to ``42 U.S.C. 2021b'' is removed from these parts. This 
section (Section 2 of the Low-Level Radioactive Waste Policy Amendments 
Act of 1985) was also added to the authority citation as part of the 
citation to Section 651(e) of the EPAct, and is unnecessary in the 
authority citation for these parts.
    The reference to ``42 U.S.C. 5842'' in 10 CFR part 35 is removed 
because this is a typographical error.
    The reference to ``Atomic Energy Act of 1954 sec. 82 (42 U.S.C. 
2112)'' in 10 CFR part 36 is removed because Section 82 authorizes the 
foreign distribution of byproduct material and is inapplicable to this 
part. The reference to ``Atomic Energy Act of 1954 sec. 186 (42 U.S.C. 
2236)'' in 10 CFR part 36 is removed because it is redundant. This 
section authorizes the Commission to revoke licenses. However, 10 CFR 
part 36 licensees are subject to the provisions of 10 CFR part 30, 
which already states that a license issued under 10 CFR parts 31 
through 36 and 39 may be revoked (10 CFR 30.61), and the authority 
citation for 10 CFR part 30 already includes Section 186. Lastly, the 
reference to ``Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 sec. 202 is (42 U.S.C. 
5842)'' in 10 CFR part 36 is removed because the statute is 
inapplicable to this part.
    Add to citation. A reference to ``Energy Reorganization Act of 
1974, sec. 206 (42 U.S.C. 5846)'' is added to 10 CFR part 31. Section 
206 provides authority for 10 CFR part 21. The general license provided 
in Sec.  31.8 is subject to the provisions of 10 CFR part 21.
10 CFR Part 37
    Add to citation. A reference to ``Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 
11 (42 U.S.C. 2014)'' is added. Section 11 is being added in order to 
be consistent with other parts of 10 CFR that have similarly 
incorporated the definition of ``byproduct material,'' as revised by 
the EPAct, that provides the Commission authority to determine new 
sources of byproduct material if statutory criteria are met.
    References to Energy Reorganization Act of 1974, secs. 201 and 202 
(42 U.S.C. 5841 and 5842) are added. The Energy Reorganization Act of 
1974 abolished the Atomic Energy Commission and created the NRC, and 
transferred all licensing and related regulatory functions from the 
former to the latter including the authority to conduct rulemaking 
under Section 161 of the Atomic Energy Act. Therefore, in any authority 
citation section that includes Section 161 of the Atomic Energy Act, it 
is appropriate to also include Section 201 of the Energy Reorganization 
Act to reflect this transfer. A reference to ``Section 202'' is added 
because 10 CFR part 37 applies to the facilities listed in that statute 
if the licensee possesses an aggregated category 1 or category 2 
quantity of radioactive material. This is reflected in the definition 
of ``Person'' in 10 CFR 37.5.
    A reference to ``44 U.S.C. 3504 note'' is added because 10 CFR part 
37 provides for the use of electronic submissions, as authorized by the 
Government Paperwork Elimination Act.
10 CFR Part 39
    Remove from citation. The reference to ``Atomic Energy Act of 1954 
sec. 82 (42 U.S.C. 2112)'' is removed because this section authorizes 
the foreign distribution of byproduct material and is inapplicable to 
this part.
    The reference to ``Atomic Energy Act of 1954 sec. 186 (42 U.S.C. 
2236)'' is removed because it is redundant. Section 186 authorizes the 
Commission to revoke licenses. However, 10 CFR part 39 licensees are 
subject to the provisions of 10 CFR part 30, which already states that 
a license issued under 10 CFR parts 31 through 36 and 39 may be revoked 
(10 CFR 30.61), and the authority citation for 10 CFR part 30 already 
includes Section 186.
    The reference to ``Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 sec. 202'' is 
removed because it is inapplicable to this part.
10 CFR Part 40
    Add to citation. A reference to ``Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 
69 (42 U.S.C. 2099)'' is added. Section 69 prohibits the Commission 
from licensing the transfer, delivery, receipt possession or title, or 
import or export of source material if the Commission determines 
issuance of such a license would be inimical to the common defense and 
security or the health and safety of the public. This prohibition is 
incorporated into the general requirements located in 10 CFR 40.32(d).
    References to Atomic Energy Act of 1954, secs. 83 and 84 are added 
because the corresponding U.S.C. citations (42 U.S.C. 2113, 2114, 
respectively) are already included in the central authority citation.
    A reference to ``Uranium Mill Tailings Radiation Control Act of 
1978, sec. 104 (42 U.S.C. 7914)'' is added to correct an inadvertent 
omission. A citation to this Act is appropriate because the Uranium 
Mill Tailings and Radiation Control Act of 1978 (UMTRCA) addresses the 
long-term surveillance and monitoring of Title I and Title II uranium 
mill tailings disposal sites. Title I sites are processing sites that 
were generally not subject to a specific NRC license. Under Section 104 
(42 U.S.C. 7914) of UMTRCA, the NRC is authorized to impose a license 
on any entity, including the U.S. Department of Energy, that acquires 
title to or leases all or any portion of a Title I site. Title II sites 
are licensed under the NRC's Atomic Energy Act, Section 83 authority, 
which is already included in the authority citation for this part.
    Remove from citation. The reference to ``Atomic Energy Act of 1954 
sec. 11(e)(2) (42 U.S.C. 2014(e)(2))'' is removed because this 
subsection does not substantively grant authority to the NRC, but 
simply defines uranium mill tailings and waste as source material. 
Authority to license source material is

[[Page 54227]]

found in other provisions of the Atomic Energy Act, which are already 
included in the authority citation.
10 CFR Part 50
    Add to citation. A reference to ``Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 
187 (42 U.S.C. 2237)'' is added. Section 187 provides that the terms 
and conditions of all licenses shall be subject to amendment, revision, 
or modification, by reason of amendments of the Atomic Energy Act, or 
by reason of rules and regulations issued in accordance with the Atomic 
Energy Act. This statutory condition is incorporated within 10 CFR 
50.54.
    A reference to ``Sec. 109, Pub. L. 96-295, 94 Stat. 783'' is added 
to the general citation for 10 CFR part 50. This law, which was not 
codified in the U.S.C., directed the NRC to take certain actions 
regarding emergency preparedness and power reactor operating license 
issuances, which are now reflected in 10 CFR part 50.
    Remove from citation. References to Energy Reorganization Act of 
1974 secs. 203 and 204 (42 U.S.C. 5843 and 5844) are removed. These 
statutes created the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation and the 
Office of Nuclear Material Safety and Safeguards, respectively. While 
these offices have responsibilities under 10 CFR part 50, in order to 
maintain consistency with the rest of 10 CFR, the NRC is no longer 
citing statutes creating individual offices outside of 10 CFR part 1, 
``Statement of organization and general information.'' These statutory 
delegations of authority overlap with the Commission's already existing 
authority to delegate responsibilities to officers of the agency under 
Section 161 of the Atomic Energy Act.
10 CFR Part 51
    Remove from citation. References to Atomic Energy Act secs. 274 and 
1701 (42 U.S.C. 2021 and 2297f) are removed. Section 274 provides the 
Commission with authority for the Agreement State program and Section 
1701 provides the Commission with authority to regulate gaseous 
diffusion uranium enrichment facilities. While these statutes are 
referenced within the categorical exclusions of 10 CFR 51.22, they do 
not provide substantive authority with respect to 10 CFR part 51.
    The reference to ``Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 sec. 211 (42 
U.S.C. 5851)'' is removed because this section is inapplicable to this 
part. There are no Employee Protection regulations in 10 CFR part 51.
    The reference to ``Pub. L. 95-604, Title II, 92 Stat. 3033-3041'' 
is removed. This citation refers to Title II of UMTRCA, which amended 
Atomic Energy Act of 1954, secs. 11, 83, 84, 161, 274, 275. All of 
these statutes are either already included in the central authority 
citation or do not provide substantive authority for 10 CFR part 51, 
which is the NRC's implementation of the National Environmental Policy 
Act of 1969 (NEPA). Although 10 CFR part 51 is consistent with UMTRCA, 
it does not provide substantive authority for the part.
10 CFR Part 52
    Add to citation. A reference to ``42 U.S.C. 2231'' is added because 
the corresponding reference to Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 181 is 
already included in the central authority citation.
10 CFR Part 54
    Add to citation. A reference to ``Energy Reorganization Act of 
1974, sec. 206'' is added because the corresponding U.S.C. citation (42 
U.S.C. 5846) is already included in the central authority citation.
    Remove from citation. The reference to ``42 U.S.C. 2135'' is 
removed because it is a typographical error.
10 CFR Part 55
    Add to citation. A reference to ``Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 
183 (42 U.S.C. 2233)'' is added. Section 183 provides the Commission 
with authority to prescribe the form, terms, and conditions of licenses 
by rule or regulation.
10 CFR Part 60
    Remove from citation. The reference to the EPAct (``Energy Policy 
Act of 2005, Public Law 109-58, 119 Stat. 594 (2005)'') is removed. The 
EPAct was first added to the 10 CFR part 60 citation in a 2008 
rulemaking that modified the requirements for the protection of 
Safeguards Information (SGI) (73 FR 63546; October 24, 2008). 
Specifically, the EPAct amended section 149 of the Atomic Energy Act of 
1954 to require fingerprinting for a broader class of persons before 
granting them access to SGI. Section 60.42 of 10 CFR states that 
licensees shall protect SGI against unauthorized disclosure in 
accordance with the requirements in 10 CFR part 73; the authority 
citation for 10 CFR part 73 includes the appropriate citation to 
Section 149 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954. Therefore, rather than 
convert the citation from the EPAct to Section 149 of the Atomic Energy 
Act, the NRC is removing the citation altogether because it is 
redundant.
10 CFR Part 61
    Remove from citation. The reference to ``42 U.S.C. 2021a'' is 
removed because the action described in this section of a 1979 
appropriations bill no longer applies to the NRC.
    The reference to ``Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 sec. 202 (42 
U.S.C. 5842)'' is removed because this section is inapplicable to this 
part, as land disposal facilities are not listed among the facilities 
in the statute.
10 CFR Part 62
    Add to citation. A reference to ``Low-Level Radioactive Waste 
Policy Amendments Act of 1985, sec. 6 (42 U.S.C. 2021f)'' is added 
because the statute provides direct authority for the regulations in 10 
CFR part 62.
    Remove from citation. The references to Atomic Energy Act of 1954 
secs. 81 and 274 (42 U.S.C. 2021) are removed. Part 62 of 10 CFR 
concerns criteria and procedures for emergency access to certain low-
level waste disposal facilities. Section 81 of the Atomic Energy Act of 
1954 provides the Commission with authority to license byproduct 
material, and Section 274 provides authority for the Agreement States 
program. Both statutes are relevant in the context of the regulation of 
low-level waste disposal facilities, but neither provide substantive 
authority for the promulgation of 10 CFR part 62.
    The reference to ``Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 sec 209 (42 
U.S.C. 5849)'' is removed from the general citation. Section 209 
establishes the office of the Executive Director for Operations. As 
previously stated, the NRC is only citing to such organizational 
statutes in 10 CFR part 1, ``Statement of organization and general 
information.''
10 CFR Part 63
    Add to citation. References to Atomic Energy Act of 1954, secs. 223 
and 234 (42 U.S.C. 2273 and 2282) are added because these statutes 
provide authority for the ``Criminal Penalties'' and ``Violations'' 
sections, respectively, of 10 CFR part 63, subpart J.
    Remove from citation. The reference to the EPAct (``Energy Policy 
Act of 2005, Public Law 109-58, 119 Stat. 594 (2005)'') is removed. The 
EPAct was first added to the 10 CFR part 63 citation in a 2008 
rulemaking that modified the requirements for the protection of SGI (73 
FR 63,546; Oct. 24, 2008). Specifically, the EPAct amended Section 149 
of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 to require fingerprinting for a 
broader class of persons before granting

[[Page 54228]]

them access to SGI. Section 63.42 of 10 CFR states that licensees shall 
protect SGI against unauthorized disclosure in accordance with the 
requirements in 10 CFR part 73; the authority citation for 10 CFR part 
73 includes the appropriate citation to Section 149 of the Atomic 
Energy Act of 1954. Therefore, rather than convert the citation from 
the EPAct to Section 149 of the Atomic Energy Act, the NRC is removing 
the citation altogether because it is redundant.
10 CFR Part 70
    Add to citation. A reference to ``Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 
1701'' is added because the central authority citation already refers 
to the corresponding U.S.C. citation (42 U.S.C. 2297f).
    Remove from citation. The reference to ``Energy Reorganization Act 
of 1974 sec. 204'' is removed (the corresponding U.S.C. citation 
erroneously refers to ``42 U.S.C. 5845,'' which is also removed). 
Section 204 establishes the Office of Nuclear Material Safety and 
Safeguards (NMSS) and provides a list of functions the Office shall 
perform as delegated by the Commission. While NMSS does perform 
functions within 10 CFR part 70, this authority largely overlaps with 
the Commission's already existing authority to delegate functions to 
other officers under Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 161 (42 U.S.C. 
2201). As previously stated, the NRC is only citing to statutes 
creating individual NRC offices within 10 CFR part 1, ``Statement of 
Organization and General Information.''
    Remove from citation. The reference to the EPAct (``Energy Policy 
Act of 2005, Public Law 109-58, 119 Stat. 594 (2005)'') is removed. The 
EPAct was first added to the 10 CFR part 70 citation in a 2008 
rulemaking that modified the requirements for the protection of SGI (73 
FR 63,546; October 24, 2008). Specifically, the EPAct amended Section 
149 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 to require fingerprinting for a 
broader class of persons before granting them access to SGI. Section 
70.32 of 10 CFR states that licensees shall protect SGI against 
unauthorized disclosure in accordance with the requirements in 10 CFR 
part 73; the authority citation for 10 CFR part 73 includes the 
appropriate citation to Section 149 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954. 
Therefore, rather than convert the citation from the EPAct to Section 
149 of the Atomic Energy Act, the NRC is removing the citation 
altogether because it is redundant.
10 CFR Part 71
    Remove from citation. The reference to the EPAct (``Energy Policy 
Act of 2005, Public Law 109-58, 119 Stat. 594 (2005)'') is removed. The 
EPAct was first added to the 10 CFR part 71 citation in a 2008 
rulemaking that modified the requirements for the protection of SGI (73 
FR 63,546; October 24, 2008). Specifically, the EPAct amended Section 
149 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 to require fingerprinting for a 
broader class of persons before granting them access to SGI. Section 
71.11 of 10 CFR states that licensees shall protect SGI against 
unauthorized disclosure in accordance with the requirements in 10 CFR 
part 73; the authority citation for 10 CFR part 73 includes the 
appropriate citation to Section 149 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954. 
Therefore, rather than convert the citation from the EPAct to Section 
149 of the Atomic Energy Act, the NRC is removing the citation 
altogether because it is redundant.
10 CFR Part 72
    Remove from citation. The references to the Nuclear Waste Policy 
Act of 1982 secs. 131 and 142(b) (42 U.S.C. 10151 and 10162(b)) are 
removed because they do not provide substantive authority to the NRC. 
Section 131 is a Congressional declaration of the ``Findings and 
Purposes'' behind the Interim Storage Program found in Subtitle B of 
the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982. The Commission's substantive 
authority to regulate interim storage of spent nuclear fuel is located 
elsewhere in the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982. Section 142(b) 
authorizes the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Energy to site, 
construct, and operate a monitored retrievable storage facility. The 
NRC's authority to license such a facility derives from Energy 
Reorganization Act of 1974, sec. 202 and Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 
1982, sec. 148, both of which are already included in the general 
citation.
    The reference to the EPAct (``Energy Policy Act of 2005, Public Law 
109-58, 119 Stat. 594 (2005)'') is removed. The EPAct was first added 
to the 10 CFR part 72 citation in a 2008 rulemaking that modified the 
requirements for the protection of SGI (73 FR 63,546; October 24, 
2008). Specifically, the EPAct amended Section 149 of the Atomic Energy 
Act of 1954 to require fingerprinting for a broader class of persons 
before granting them access to SGI. Sections 72.44 and 72.212 of 10 CFR 
state that licensees shall protect SGI against unauthorized disclosure 
in accordance with the requirements in 10 CFR part 73; the authority 
citation for 10 CFR part 73 includes the appropriate citation to 
Section 149 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954. Therefore, rather than 
convert the citation from the EPAct to Section 149 of the Atomic Energy 
Act, the NRC is removing the citation altogether because it is 
redundant.
10 CFR Part 73
    Add to citation. A reference to ``Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 
149'' is added because the central authority citation already includes 
a reference to the accompanying U.S.C. citation (42 U.S.C. 2169).
    A reference to Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 sec. 202 (42 
U.S.C. 5842) is added because the scope of part 73 includes the 
Department of Energy facilities listed in that statute.
    Remove from citation. The reference to ``Energy Reorganization Act 
of 1974 sec. 204 (42 U.S.C. 5844)'' is removed. Section 204 establishes 
NMSS and provides a list of functions the office shall perform as 
delegated by the Commission. While NMSS does perform functions within 
10 CFR part 73, this authority largely overlaps with the Commission's 
already existing authority to delegate functions to other officers 
under Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 161 (42 U.S.C. 2201). As 
previously stated, the NRC is only citing to statutes creating 
individual NRC offices within 10 CFR part 1, ``Statement of 
Organization and General Information.''
    The reference to ``42 U.S.C. 2210(e)'' in the string of Atomic 
Energy Act of 1954 citations is removed because this is a typographical 
error. The correct citation to ``42 U.S.C. 2210e'' is now included.
10 CFR Part 74
    Remove from citation. The reference to ``Atomic Energy Act of 1954 
sec. 183 (42 U.S.C. 2233)'' is removed. Section 183 provides the 
Commission with authority to prescribe the form, terms, and conditions 
of licenses by rule or regulation. Part 74 of 10 CFR contains 
requirements for licensees but does not provide for the issuance of 
licenses. The parts of 10 CFR that do provide for the issuance of 
licenses that are subject to 10 CFR part 74 (e.g., 10 CFR part 70) 
already reference Section 183 as authority. Therefore, it is redundant 
to cite to Section 183 in parts that do not provide for the issuance of 
licenses.
    The reference to ``Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 sec. 206 (42 
U.S.C. 5846)'' is removed. Section 206 requires individual directors or 
responsible officers of firms constructing, owning, operating, or 
supplying components for any facility or activity licensed or regulated 
by the

[[Page 54229]]

NRC to report defects or failures to comply that may create substantial 
safety hazards. Part 74 of 10 CFR establishes control and accounting 
requirements for licensees of special nuclear material. While the same 
licensed activity can be subject to both 10 CFR part 74 control and 
accounting requirements and Section 206 reporting requirements, the 
Atomic Energy Act is the substantive authority for the promulgation of 
10 CFR part 74.
10 CFR Part 75
    Add to citation. A reference to ``Nuclear Waste Policy Act, sec. 
141'' is added because the central authority citation already includes 
a reference to the accompanying U.S.C. citation (42 U.S.C. 10161).
    A reference to ``Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 1701 (42 U.S.C. 
2297f)'' is added because 10 CFR part 75 imposes requirements on 
certificate holders for gaseous diffusion plants.
10 CFR Part 76
    Remove from citation. The reference to Atomic Energy Act of 1954 
sec. 1312 (42 U.S.C. 2297b-11) is removed because this section of the 
Act has been repealed.
    The reference to ``Energy Reorganization Act sec. 204'' is removed 
(the accompanying U.S.C. reference, which erroneously cites ``42 U.S.C. 
5842,'' is also removed). Section 204 creates NMSS and provides a list 
of functions the office shall perform as delegated by the Commission. 
While NMSS does perform functions within 10 CFR part 76, this authority 
largely overlaps with the Commission's already existing authority to 
delegate functions to other officers under Atomic Energy Act of 1954, 
sec. 161 (42 U.S.C. 2201). As previously stated, the NRC is only citing 
to statutes creating individual NRC offices within 10 CFR part 1, 
``Statement of Organization and General Information.''
    The reference to the EPAct (``Energy Policy Act of 2005, Public Law 
109-58, 119 Stat. 594 (2005)'') is removed. The EPAct was first added 
to the 10 CFR part 76 citation in a 2008 rulemaking that modified the 
requirements for the protection of SGI (73 FR 63546; October 24, 2008). 
Specifically, the EPAct amended Section 149 of the Atomic Energy Act of 
1954 to require fingerprinting for a broader class of persons before 
granting them access to SGI. Subpart E of 10 CFR part 76 states that 
the requirements to protect SGI against unauthorized disclosure are 
located in 10 CFR part 73; the authority citation for 10 CFR part 73 
includes the appropriate citation to Section 149 of the Atomic Energy 
Act of 1954. Therefore, rather than convert the citation from the EPAct 
to Section 149 of the Atomic Energy Act, the NRC is removing the 
citation altogether because it is redundant.
10 CFR Part 95
    Remove from citation. ``E.O. 13526, 3 CFR, 2010 Comp., pp. 298-
327'' is removed because the same Executive Order is erroneously cited 
as authority twice.
10 CFR Part 110
    Add to citation. References to Atomic Energy Act of 1954, secs. 62 
and 124 are added because the central authority citation already 
includes a reference to the accompanying U.S.C. citation (42 U.S.C. 
2092 and 2154, respectively).
    A reference to ``Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 133 (42 U.S.C. 
2160c)'' is added to the central authority citation because this 
provides the Commission authority to issue licenses for the export of 
special nuclear material described within the statute.
    Amend citation. The ``also issued under'' citations for the various 
paragraphs of Section 110(b) have been consolidated into one ``also 
issued under citation.'' A reference to ``50 App. U.S.C. 2401 et seq.'' 
is added to provide further statutory authority for export license 
exceptions under the Export Administration Act regulations overseen by 
the U.S. Department of Commerce. A reference to ``22 U.S.C. 2778a'' is 
also added to provide citation to the proper authorizing statute for 
the exception listed in this section.
    References to ``42 U.S.C. 2139a'' and ``42 U.S.C. 2155a'' are being 
removed from the string of Atomic Energy Act of 1954 citations and 
included as separate citations in the central authority citation. 
Sections 2139a and 2155a were enacted as part of the Nuclear Non-
Proliferation Act of 1978, and not part of the Atomic Energy Act of 
1954.
    Remove from citation. The reference to Section 554 of the 
Administrative Procedure Act, which contains the requirements for on-
the-record hearings, is removed from the additional citation to 
Sec. Sec.  110.80-110.113 because 42 U.S.C. 2155a provides that, 
notwithstanding Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 189, an on-the-record 
hearing is not required for export license proceedings. Therefore, that 
section does not provide authority for Sec. Sec.  110.80-110.113.
10 CFR Part 150
    Add to citation. A reference to ``Atomic Energy Act of 1954, sec. 
274'' is added because the central authority citation already includes 
a reference to the accompanying U.S.C. citation (42 U.S.C. 2021). 
Similarly, a reference to ``Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982, sec. 
141'' is added because the central authority citation already includes 
a reference to the accompanying U.S.C. citation (42 U.S.C. 10161).
    Remove from citation. The reference to ``Atomic Energy Act of 1954 
sec. 11(e)(2) (42 U.S.C. 2014(e)(2))'' is removed because this 
subsection does not substantively grant authority to the NRC, but 
simply defines uranium mill tailings and waste as source material. 
Authority to license source material is found in other provisions of 
the Atomic Energy Act, which are already included in the authority 
citation.
10 CFR Part 171
    Remove from citation. The reference to ``42 U.S.C. 2213'' is 
removed because it was repealed in 2006 by Section 637 of the EPAct.

III. Rulemaking Procedure

    Under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553(b)), an agency 
may waive the normal notice and comments requirements if it finds, for 
good cause, that they are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to 
the public interest. The NRC finds that notice and comment for these 
amendments are unnecessary because the changes made in this rulemaking 
are non-substantive formatting edits or corrective changes to 
typographical errors and inadvertent omissions to authority citations. 
No substantive text in the regulations is being amended. These 
amendments require no action by any person or entity regulated by the 
NRC, nor do they alter any substantive rights, responsibilities, or 
obligations. Soliciting public comments on these changes would not 
affect the scope and nature of the revisions because they must reflect 
the current legal authority that provides a basis for the Commission's 
regulations. Therefore, the NRC finds good cause that notice and 
comment is unnecessary, and is exercising its authority under 5 U.S.C. 
553(b)(B) to publish these amendments as a final rule without the 
opportunity for public comment. Furthermore, for the reasons previously 
stated, the NRC finds, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), that good cause 
exists to make this rule effective upon publication.

IV. Environmental Impact: Categorical Exclusion

    The NRC has determined that this final rule is the type of action 
described in categorical exclusion 10 CFR 51.22(c)(2), which excludes 
from a major action rules that are corrective or

[[Page 54230]]

of a minor or nonpolicy nature and do not substantially modify existing 
regulations. Therefore, neither an environmental impact statement nor 
an environmental assessment has been prepared for this rule.

V. Paperwork Reduction Act Statement

    This final rule does not contain information collection 
requirements and, therefore, is not subject to the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.).

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 
Office of Management and Budget control number.

VI. Plain Writing

    The Plain Writing Act of 2010 (Pub. L. 111-274) requires Federal 
agencies to write documents in a clear, concise, and 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. Backfitting and Issue Finality

    The NRC has determined that the administrative changes in the final 
rule do not constitute backfitting and are not inconsistent with any of 
the issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52, and therefore a 
backfit analysis is not included. The revisions are administrative in 
nature, including revisions to authority citation formatting and 
typographical corrections. They impose no new requirements and make no 
substantive changes to the regulations. The revisions do not involve 
any provisions that would impose backfits as defined in 10 CFR chapter 
I, or would be inconsistent with the issue finality provisions in 10 
CFR part 52. For these reasons, the issuance of the rule in final form 
would not constitute backfitting or represent an inconsistency with any 
of the issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52. Therefore, the NRC 
has not prepared any additional documentation for this rulemaking 
addressing backfitting or issue finality.
