Download as PDF 10284 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 39 / Monday, February 29, 2016 / Notices licensees’ strategies. On November 10, 2015 (80 FR 69702), the NRC requested public comments on draft JLD–ISG–12– 01, Revision 1. The NRC staff received comments from four stakeholders which were considered in the development of the final JLD–ISG–12–01, Revision 1. The questions, comments, and staff resolutions of those comments are contained in ‘‘NRC Responses to Public Comments: Revision to Japan LessonsLearned Division Interim Staff Guidance JLD–ISG–2012–01: Compliance with Order EA–12–049, Order Modifying Licenses with Regard to Requirements for Mitigation Strategies for BeyondDesign-Basis External Events’’ (ADAMS Accession No. ML15357A142). II. Congressional Review Act This ISG revision is a rule as defined in the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801–808). However, the Office of Management and Budget has not found it to be a major rule as defined in the Congressional Review Act. III. Backfitting and Issue Finality This ISG provides guidance on an acceptable method for implementing the requirements contained in Order EA– 12–049. Licensees may voluntarily use the guidance in JLD–ISG–2012–01, Revision 1 to demonstrate compliance with Order EA–12–049. Methods or solutions that differ from those described in this ISG may be deemed acceptable if they provide sufficient basis and information for the NRC to verify that the proposed alternative demonstrates compliance with Order EA–12–049. Issuance of this ISG does not constitute backfitting as defined in title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) 50.109, ‘‘Backfitting’’ (the Backfit Rule), and is not otherwise inconsistent with the issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52, ‘‘Licenses, Certifications, and Approvals for Nuclear Power Plants.’’ Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 22 day of February 2016.

The proposed amendment would authorize the recovery of uranium by ISL extraction techniques at the Kendrick Expansion Area. This application contains SUNSI. An NRC administrative completeness review found the application acceptable for a technical review (ADAMS Accession No. ML15362A613). Prior to approving the amendment request, the NRC will need to make the findings required by the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the NRC’s regulations. The NRC’s findings will be documented in a safety evaluation report and an environmental impact statement (EIS) as a supplement to NUREG–1910, ‘‘Generic Environmental Impact Statement for InSitu Leach Uranium Milling Facilities,’’ dated May 2009 (ADAMS Accession No. ML091560163). A notice of intent to prepare an EIS will be the subject of a subsequent notice in the Federal Register. II. Opportunity To Request a Hearing and Petition for Leave To Intervene Within 60 days after the date of publication of this notice, any person(s) whose interest may be affected by this action may file a request for a hearing and a petition to intervene with respect to issuance of the amendment to the subject facility operating license. Requests for a hearing and a petition for leave to intervene shall be filed in accordance with the NRC’s ‘‘Agency Rules of Practice and Procedure’’ in 10 CFR part 2. Interested person(s) should consult a current copy of 10 CFR 2.309, which is available at the NRC’s PDR, located in One White Flint North, Room O1–F21 (first floor), 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland 20852. The NRC’s regulations are accessible electronically from the NRC Library on the NRC’s Web site at http:// www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doccollections/cfr/. If a request for a hearing or petition for leave to intervene is filed within 60 days, the Commission or a presiding officer designated by the Commission or by the Chief Administrative Judge of the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board Panel will rule on the request and/or petition.
