SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: By letter dated September 8, 2016, DOE submitted to the NRC an application to amend the Materials License No. SNM– 2504 for the FSV ISFSI, located in Platteville, Colorado (ADAMS Accession No. ML16258A179). Materials License No. SNM–2504 authorizes the licensee to receive, possess, store, and transfer spent nuclear fuel from the decommissioned FSV Nuclear Generating Station. The proposed amendment revises the licensee delegation of authority in the license, the technical specifications, and the final safety analysis report. These documents currently delegate authority under the license to the Manager, DOE Idaho Operations Office. The amendment would replace that DATES: PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 reference with the Deputy Manager, Idaho Cleanup Project in each of the documents. In a letter to DOE dated December 9, 2016, NRC notified DOE that the application was acceptable to begin a technical review (ADAMS Accession No. ML16347A129). In accordance with § 72.16 of tittle 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), a notice of docketing was published in the Federal Register on February 23, 2017 (82 FR 11484). The NRC prepared a safety evaluation report (SER) (ADAMS Accession No. ML17151A391) to document its review and evaluation of the amendment request. As further explained in the SER, the NRC has also determined that the license amendment is administrative in nature, and therefore satisfies the 10 CFR 51.22(c)(11) criteria for a categorical exclusion from the requirement to prepare an environmental impact statement. Under 10 CFR 51.22(c)(11), this action is eligible for categorical exclusion, because it is an amendment to a materials licenses which is administrative, organizational, or procedural in nature, or which results in a change in process operations or equipment, provided that (i) there is no significant change in the types or significant increase in the amounts of any effluents that may be released offsite, (ii) there is no significant increase in individual or cumulative occupational radiation exposure, (iii) there is no significant construction impact, and (iv) there is no significant increase in the potential for or consequences from radiological accidents. Consequently, an environmental assessment and finding of no significant impact are not required. Upon completing its review, the NRC staff determined the request complies with the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), as well as the NRC’s rules and regulations. The Commission has made appropriate findings as required by the Act and the Commission’s rules and regulations in 10 CFR chapter I, which are set forth in the license amendment. The NRC approved and issued Amendment No. 11 to Special Nuclear Materials License No. SNM–2504, held by DOE for the receipt, possession, transfer, and storage of spent fuel and associated radioactive materials at the FSV ISFSI. Amendment No. 11 was effective as of the date of issuance.

Storage Installation

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: License amendment application; issuance.

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

SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) reviewed an 
application by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for an amendment to 
Materials License No. SNM-2504, for the Fort St. Vrain (FSV) 
independent spent fuel storage installation (ISFSI), located in 
Platteville, Colorado. The amendment revises the licensee delegation of 
authority in the license, the technical specifications, and the final 
safety analysis report. These documents currently delegate authority 
under the license to the Manager, DOE Idaho Operations Office. The 
amendment would replace that reference with the Deputy Manager, Idaho 
Cleanup Project in each of the documents.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: By letter dated September 8, 2016, DOE 
submitted to the NRC an application to amend the Materials License No. 
SNM-2504 for the FSV ISFSI, located in Platteville, Colorado (ADAMS 
Accession No. ML16258A179). Materials License No. SNM-2504 authorizes 
the licensee to receive, possess, store, and transfer spent nuclear 
fuel from the decommissioned FSV Nuclear Generating Station. The 
proposed amendment revises the licensee delegation of authority in the 
license, the technical specifications, and the final safety analysis 
report. These documents currently delegate authority under the license 
to the Manager, DOE Idaho Operations Office. The amendment would 
replace that reference with the Deputy Manager, Idaho Cleanup Project 
in each of the documents.
    In a letter to DOE dated December 9, 2016, NRC notified DOE that 
the application was acceptable to begin a technical review (ADAMS 
Accession No. ML16347A129). In accordance with Sec.  72.16 of tittle 10 
of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), a notice of docketing was 
published in the Federal Register on February 23, 2017 (82 FR 11484).
    The NRC prepared a safety evaluation report (SER) (ADAMS Accession 
No. ML17151A391) to document its review and evaluation of the amendment 
request. As further explained in the SER, the NRC has also determined 
that the license amendment is administrative in nature, and therefore 
satisfies the 10 CFR 51.22(c)(11) criteria for a categorical exclusion 
from the requirement to prepare an environmental impact statement. 
Under 10 CFR 51.22(c)(11), this action is eligible for categorical 
exclusion, because it is an amendment to a materials licenses which is 
administrative, organizational, or procedural in nature, or which 
results in a change in process operations or equipment, provided that 
(i) there is no significant change in the types or significant increase 
in the amounts of any effluents that may be released offsite, (ii) 
there is no significant increase in individual or cumulative 
occupational radiation exposure, (iii) there is no significant 
construction impact, and (iv) there is no significant increase in the 
potential for or consequences from radiological accidents. 
Consequently, an environmental assessment and finding of no significant 
impact are not required.
    Upon completing its review, the NRC staff determined the request 
complies with the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act 
of 1954, as amended (the Act), as well as the NRC's rules and 
regulations. The Commission has made appropriate findings as required 
by the Act and the Commission's rules and regulations in 10 CFR chapter 
I, which are set forth in the license amendment. The NRC approved and 
issued Amendment No. 11 to Special Nuclear Materials License No. SNM-
2504, held by DOE for the receipt, possession, transfer, and storage of 
spent fuel and associated radioactive materials at the FSV ISFSI. 
Amendment No. 11 was effective as of the date of issuance.
    In accordance with 10 CFR 72.46(b)(2), the NRC has determined that 
Amendment No. 11 does not

present a genuine issue as to whether the health and safety of the 
public will be significantly affected. Therefore, the publication of a 
notice of proposed action and an opportunity for hearing or a notice of 
hearing is not warranted. Notice is hereby given of the right of 
interested persons to request a hearing on whether the action should be 
rescinded or modified.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 25th day of May, 2017.
