SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Discussion

    Based upon the application dated May 25, 2016, as supplemented 
January 20, 2017, February 28, 2017, June 5, 2017, July 10, 2017, and 
August 16, 2017, the NRC has issued a renewed license to the licensee 
for the North Anna ISFSI, located in Louisa County, Virginia. The 
renewed license SNM-2507 authorizes and requires operation of the North 
Anna ISFSI in accordance with the provisions of the renewed license and 
its technical specifications. The renewed license will expire on June 
30, 2058.
    The licensee's application for a renewed license complies with the 
standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended 
(the Act), and the NRC's rules and regulations. The NRC has made 
appropriate findings as required by the Act and the NRC's regulations 
in chapter 1 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), 
and sets forth those findings in the renewed license. The agency 
afforded an opportunity for a hearing in the Notice of Opportunity for 
a Hearing published in the Federal Register on August 23, 2016 (81 FR 
57629). The NRC received no request for a hearing or petition for leave 
to intervene following the notice.
    The NRC staff prepared a safety evaluation report for the renewal 
of the ISFSI license and concluded, based on that evaluation, the ISFSI 
will continue to meet the regulations in 10 CFR part 72. The NRC staff 
also prepared an environmental assessment and finding of no significant 
impact for the renewal of this license, which were published on 
February 2, 2018 (83 FR 4932). The NRC staff's consideration of the 
impacts of continued storage of spent nuclear fuel (as documented in 
NUREG-2157, ``Generic Environmental Impact Statement for Continued 
Storage of Spent Fuel'') was included in the environmental assessment. 
The NRC staff concluded that renewal of this ISFSI license will not 
have a significant impact on the quality of the human environment.
