SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Background DOE and OSHA entered into a MOU on August 10, 1992, delineating regulatory authority over the occupational safety and health of contractor employees at DOE government-owned or leased, contractor-operated (GOCO) facilities. In general, the MOU recognizes that DOE exercises statutory authority under section 161(f) of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, (42 U.S.C. 2201(f)), relating to the occupational safety and health of private-sector employees at these facilities. Section 4(b)(1) of the Occupational Safety Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act) (29 U.S.C. 653(b)(1), exempts from OSHA PO 00000 Frm 00104 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 authority working conditions with respect to which other federal agencies have exercised statutory authority to prescribe or enforce standards or regulations affecting occupational safety and health. The 1992 MOU acknowledges DOE’s extensive program for the regulation of contractor health and safety, which requires contractor compliance with all OSHA standards as well as additional requirements prescribed by DOE, and concludes with an agreement by the agencies that the provisions of the OSH Act will not apply to GOCO sites for which DOE has exercised authority to regulate occupational safety and health under the Atomic Energy Act. The 1992 MOU has expired. In light of DOE’s policy emphasis on privatization activities, OSHA and DOE entered into a second MOU on July 25, 2000, that establishes interagency procedures to address regulatory authority for occupational safety and health at specified privatized facilities and operations on sites formerly controlled by DOE. The July 25, 2000, MOU covers facilities and operations on lands no longer controlled by DOE, which are not conducting activities for or on behalf of DOE and where there is no likelihood that any employee exposure to radiation from DOE sources would be 25 millirems per year (mrem/ yr) or more. II. Notice of Transfer In an email dated February 2, 2018, DOE requested that OSHA or, as appropriate, the Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health Administration (TOSHA) accept occupational safety and health regulatory authority over employees at the East Tennessee Technology Park in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, six parcels of land pursuant to the MOU on Safety and Health Enforcement at Privatized Facilities and Operations dated July 25, 2000. Other facilities and properties at the East Tennessee Technology Park were transferred to TOSHA jurisdiction under this MOU by Federal Register notices 74 FR 120 (January 2, 2009), 74 FR 39977 (August 10, 2009), 76 FR 80408 (December 23, 2011) and 79 FR 29456 (May 22, 2014). The six parcels of land, which are located at the East Tennessee Technology Park in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and were transferred by deed to the Community Reuse Organization of East Tennessee (CROET) are described as follows: • Land Parcel ED–11 Consists of five tracts of land separated by roadways: ED–11A (11.67 acres), ED–11B (2.25 acres), ED–11C (0.49 acres), ED–11D E:\FR\FM\11SEN1.SGM 11SEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 176 / Tuesday, September 11, 2018 / Notices (0.31 acres), and ED–11E (0.15 acres). No buildings are included in this transfer; • Land Parcel ED–12 Consists of five tracts of land separated by roadways: ED–12A (5.88 acres), ED–12B (2.57 acres), ED–12C (1.75 acres), ED–12D (2.99 acres), and ED–12E (0.16 acres). No buildings are included in this transfer; • Land Parcel ED–3 Consists of two tracts of land separated by roadways. The southern tract (111 acres), and the northern tract (2.5 acres). No buildings are included in this transfer; • Land Parcel ED–3 West Consists of one tract of approximately 72 acres. No buildings are included in this transfer; • Land Parcel K–31 Consists of one tract of approximately 61 acres. No buildings are included in this transfer. Any existing buildings will be destroyed before the transfer takes place; and • Land Parcel K–33 Consists of one tract of approximately 136.4 acres. No buildings are included in this transfer. OSHA’s Regional Office in Atlanta, Georgia, working with the OSHA Nashville Area Office and TOSHA, determined that TOSHA is willing to accept authority over the occupational safety and health of public-sector and private-sector employees at the six parcels of land at the East Tennessee Technology Park in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, that were transferred by deed to CROET. In a letter from OSHA to DOE dated May 21, 2018, OSHA stated that TOSHA is satisfied with DOE assurances that (1) there is no likelihood that any employee at facilities in the vicinity of these land parcels will be exposed to radiation levels that will be 25 millirems per year (mrem/yr) or more, and; (2) transfer of authority to TOSHA is free from regulatory gaps and does not diminish the safety and health protection of the employees. Accordingly, TOSHA accepts and maintains health and safety regulatory authority over employees in the vicinity of Land Parcels ED–11, ED–12, ED–3, ED–3 West, K–31 and K–33. daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES III.

ACTION: Notice of availability of proposed records schedules; request for comments. AGENCY: The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) publishes notice at least once monthly of certain Federal agency requests for records disposition authority (records schedules). Once approved by NARA, records schedules provide mandatory instructions on what happens to records when agencies no longer need them for current Government business. The records schedules authorize agencies to preserve records of continuing value in the National Archives of the United States and to destroy, after a specified period, records lacking administrative, legal, research, or other value. NARA publishes notice in the Federal Register for records schedules in which agencies propose to destroy records they no longer need to conduct agency business. NARA invites public comments on such records schedules. DATES: NARA must receive requests for copies in writing by October 11, 2018. Once NARA finishes appraising the records, we will send you a copy of the schedule you requested. We usually prepare appraisal memoranda that contain additional information concerning the records covered by a proposed schedule. You may also request these. If you do, we will also provide them once we have completed the appraisal. You have 30 days after we send to you these requested documents in which to submit comments. ADDRESSES: You may request a copy of any records schedule identified in this notice by contacting Records Appraisal and Agency Assistance (ACRA) using one of the following means: Mail: NARA (ACRA); 8601 Adelphi Road; College Park, MD 20740–6001, Email: request.schedule@nara.gov, Fax: 301– 837–3698.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NARA publishes notice in the Federal Register for records schedules they no longer need to conduct agency business. NARA invites public comments on such records schedules, as required by 44 U.S.C. 3303a(a). Each year, Federal agencies create billions of records on paper, film, magnetic tape, and other media. To control this accumulation, agency records managers prepare schedules proposing records retention periods and submit these schedules for NARA’s approval. These schedules provide for timely transfer into the National Archives of historically valuable records and authorize the agency to dispose of all other records after the agency no longer needs them to conduct its business. Some schedules are comprehensive and cover all the records of an agency or one of its major subdivisions. Most schedules, however, cover records of only one office or program or a few series of records. Many of these update previously approved schedules, and some include records proposed as permanent. The schedules listed in this notice are media neutral unless otherwise specified. An item in a schedule is media neutral when an agency may apply the disposition instructions to records regardless of the medium in which it creates or maintains the records. Items included in schedules submitted to NARA on or after December 17, 2007, are media neutral unless the item is expressly limited to a specific medium. (See 36 CFR 1225.12(e).) Agencies may not destroy Federal records without Archivist of the United States’ approval. The Archivist approves destruction only after thoroughly considering the records’ administrative use by the agency of origin, the rights of the Government and of private people directly affected by the Government’s activities, and whether or not the records have historical or other value.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    DOE and OSHA entered into a MOU on August 10, 1992, delineating 
regulatory authority over the occupational safety and health of 
contractor employees at DOE government-owned or leased, contractor-
operated (GOCO) facilities. In general, the MOU recognizes that DOE 
exercises statutory authority under section 161(f) of the Atomic Energy 
Act of 1954, as amended, (42 U.S.C. 2201(f)), relating to the 
occupational safety and health of private-sector employees at these 
facilities.
    Section 4(b)(1) of the Occupational Safety Health Act of 1970 (OSH 
Act) (29 U.S.C. 653(b)(1), exempts from OSHA authority working 
conditions with respect to which other federal agencies have exercised 
statutory authority to prescribe or enforce standards or regulations 
affecting occupational safety and health. The 1992 MOU acknowledges 
DOE's extensive program for the regulation of contractor health and 
safety, which requires contractor compliance with all OSHA standards as 
well as additional requirements prescribed by DOE, and concludes with 
an agreement by the agencies that the provisions of the OSH Act will 
not apply to GOCO sites for which DOE has exercised authority to 
regulate occupational safety and health under the Atomic Energy Act. 
The 1992 MOU has expired.
    In light of DOE's policy emphasis on privatization activities, OSHA 
and DOE entered into a second MOU on July 25, 2000, that establishes 
interagency procedures to address regulatory authority for occupational 
safety and health at specified privatized facilities and operations on 
sites formerly controlled by DOE. The July 25, 2000, MOU covers 
facilities and operations on lands no longer controlled by DOE, which 
are not conducting activities for or on behalf of DOE and where there 
is no likelihood that any employee exposure to radiation from DOE 
sources would be 25 millirems per year (mrem/yr) or more.

II. Notice of Transfer

    In an email dated February 2, 2018, DOE requested that OSHA or, as 
appropriate, the Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health 
Administration (TOSHA) accept occupational safety and health regulatory 
authority over employees at the East Tennessee Technology Park in Oak 
Ridge, Tennessee, six parcels of land pursuant to the MOU on Safety and 
Health Enforcement at Privatized Facilities and Operations dated July 
25, 2000. Other facilities and properties at the East Tennessee 
Technology Park were transferred to TOSHA jurisdiction under this MOU 
by Federal Register notices 74 FR 120 (January 2, 2009), 74 FR 39977 
(August 10, 2009), 76 FR 80408 (December 23, 2011) and 79 FR 29456 (May 
22, 2014).
    The six parcels of land, which are located at the East Tennessee 
Technology Park in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and were transferred by deed 
to the Community Reuse Organization of East Tennessee (CROET) are 
described as follows:
     Land Parcel ED-11 Consists of five tracts of land 
separated by roadways: ED-11A (11.67 acres), ED-11B (2.25 acres), ED-
11C (0.49 acres), ED-11D

[[Page 45979]]

(0.31 acres), and ED-11E (0.15 acres). No buildings are included in 
this transfer;
     Land Parcel ED-12 Consists of five tracts of land 
separated by roadways: ED-12A (5.88 acres), ED-12B (2.57 acres), ED-12C 
(1.75 acres), ED-12D (2.99 acres), and ED-12E (0.16 acres). No 
buildings are included in this transfer;
     Land Parcel ED-3 Consists of two tracts of land separated 
by roadways. The southern tract (111 acres), and the northern tract 
(2.5 acres). No buildings are included in this transfer;
     Land Parcel ED-3 West Consists of one tract of 
approximately 72 acres. No buildings are included in this transfer;
     Land Parcel K-31 Consists of one tract of approximately 61 
acres. No buildings are included in this transfer. Any existing 
buildings will be destroyed before the transfer takes place; and
     Land Parcel K-33 Consists of one tract of approximately 
136.4 acres. No buildings are included in this transfer.
    OSHA's Regional Office in Atlanta, Georgia, working with the OSHA 
Nashville Area Office and TOSHA, determined that TOSHA is willing to 
accept authority over the occupational safety and health of public-
sector and private-sector employees at the six parcels of land at the 
East Tennessee Technology Park in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, that were 
transferred by deed to CROET. In a letter from OSHA to DOE dated May 
21, 2018, OSHA stated that TOSHA is satisfied with DOE assurances that 
(1) there is no likelihood that any employee at facilities in the 
vicinity of these land parcels will be exposed to radiation levels that 
will be 25 millirems per year (mrem/yr) or more, and; (2) transfer of 
authority to TOSHA is free from regulatory gaps and does not diminish 
the safety and health protection of the employees.
    Accordingly, TOSHA accepts and maintains health and safety 
regulatory authority over employees in the vicinity of Land Parcels ED-
11, ED-12, ED-3, ED-3 West, K-31 and K-33.
