Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 177 / Tuesday, September 13, 2016 / Notices 10 CFR part 52 license (e.g., an early site permit) or NRC regulatory approval (e.g., a design certification rule) with specified issue finality provisions. The NRC does not, at this time, intend to impose the positions represented in Revision 3 of RG 1.54 on combined license applicants in a manner that is inconsistent with any issue finality provisions. If, in the future, the NRC seeks to impose a position in Revision 3 of RG 1.54 in a manner that does not provide issue finality as described in the applicable issue finality provision, then the NRC must address the criteria for avoiding issue finality as described in the applicable issue finality provision. Proposed Revision 3 of RG 1.54 updates the ASTM International standards the NRC staff has approved for use when qualifying and testing protective coatings and linings used in nuclear power plants. Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 7th day of September, 2016. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Thomas H. Boyce, Chief, Regulatory Guidance and Generic Issues Branch, Division of Engineering, Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The NNI is a U.S. Government R&D program 
involving 20 departments and independent agencies, 11 of which have 
budgets for nanotechnology R&D, working together toward the common 
vision of a future in which the ability to understand and control 
matter at the nanoscale level leads to a revolution in technology and 
industry that benefits society. The combined, coordinated efforts of 
these agencies have accelerated discovery, development, and deployment 
of nanotechnology towards agency missions and the broader national 
interest.
    The NNI Strategic Plan describes the NNI vision and goals and the 
strategies by which these goals are to be achieved. The plan includes a 
description of the NNI investment strategy and the program component 
areas called for by the 21st Century Research and Development Act of
