Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 156 / Monday, August 13, 2018 / Notices criteria for avoiding issue finality as described in the applicable issue finality provision. 3. Backfitting and issue finality do not—with limited exceptions not applicable here—protect current or future applicants. Applicants and potential applicants are not, with certain exceptions, protected by either the Backfit Rule or any issue finality provisions under 10 CFR part 52. Neither the Backfit Rule nor the issue finality provisions under 10 CFR part 52—with certain exclusions—were intended to apply to every NRC action that substantially changes the expectations of current and future applicants. The exceptions to the general principle are applicable whenever an applicant references a 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 staff does not, at this time, intend to impose the positions represented in the SRP in a manner that is inconsistent with any issue finality provisions. If, in the future, the staff seeks to impose a position in the SRP section in a manner that does not provide issue finality as described in the applicable issue finality provision, then the staff must address the criteria for avoiding issue finality as described in the applicable issue finality provision. III. Congressional Review Act This action is not a rule as defined in the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801–808). Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 8th day of August, 2018. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Jennivine K. Rankin, Acting Chief, Division of Licensing, Siting, and Environmental Analysis, Licensing Branch 3, Office of New Reactors.
