SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    By application dated February 17, 2015, as supplemented March 9, 
and 18, 2015, DOE submitted to the NRC, in accordance with part 72 of 
title 10 of the Code of Federal Register (CFR), a request to amend 
License No. SNM-2504 for its FSV ISFSI located in Platteville, 
Colorado. This ISFSI contains spent fuel that was generated at the now- 
decommissioned FSV Nuclear Generating Station. License No. SNM-2504 
authorizes DOE to receive, possess, store, and transfer spent nuclear 
fuel and associated radioactive materials at the FSV ISFSI. 
Specifically, DOE requested approval to revise response times stated in 
the license's technical specifications that are associated with fuel 
storage container leak tests, and to make an editorial change to the 
technical specifications table of contents.
    The NRC issued a letter dated March 9, 2015 (ADAMS Accession No. 
ML15069A008), notifying DOE that the application was acceptable for 
review. In accordance with 10 CFR 72.46(a), a notice of proposed action 
and opportunity for hearing was published in the Federal Register on 
April 20, 2015 (80 FR 21772). No requests for a hearing or for leave to 
intervene were submitted. Accordingly, pursuant to 10 CFR 72.46(d), the 
NRC is publishing this notice that the action proposed by DOE in its 
license amendment request has been taken.
    The NRC prepared a safety evaluation report (SER) that documents 
its review and evaluation of the amendment request. Also in connection 
with this action, the NRC prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) 
(ADAMS Accession No. ML16028A407) containing a Finding of No 
Significant Impact (FONSI). The Notice of Availability of the EA and 
FONSI for the FSV ISFSI was published in the Federal Register on 
February 23, 2016 (81 FR 9002).
    Upon completing its review, the staff determined that the amendment 
request complies with the standards and requirements of the Atomic 
Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), as well as the NRC's 
applicable regulations. As required by the Act and such regulations, 
the staff made the appropriate findings which are contained in the SER 
(ADAMS Accession No. ML15258A235) and the EA. Based on these findings, 
the NRC approved DOE's amendment request and accordingly issued 
Amendment No. 10 to License No. SNM-2504. Amendment No. 10 was 
effective as of its date of issuance on March 17, 2016.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 17th day of March, 2016.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
