II. Background The NRC received a request for approval of a partial site release from DEF (the licensee), by letter dated January 22, 2019 (ADAMS Package Accession No. ML19029A018). DEF requests NRC approval to remove and release from its title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), part 50 license the portions of the site that the Historical Site Assessment (HSA) characterization process has classified as radiologically non-impacted, in accordance with 10 CFR 50.83(b). The property that is subject to this release request is an approximately 3,854-acre parcel of land that the licensee states was not used for plant operations or storage of radioactive material. The CR3 license (NRC License No. DPR–72, Docket No. 50–302) is for a power reactor under 10 CFR part 50, ‘‘Domestic Licensing of Production and Utilization Facilities.’’ The facility was certified as permanently shut down, per NRC regulations in 10 CFR 50.82(a), by letter dated February 20, 2013. CR3 is currently in ‘‘SAFSTOR’’ decommissioning mode awaiting the termination of the power reactor license. As described in 10 CFR 50.83(c), the NRC will determine whether the licensee has adequately evaluated the effect of releasing the properties per the requirements of 10 CFR 50.83(a)(1), determine whether the licensee’s classification of any released areas as ‘‘non-impacted’’ is adequately justified, and if the NRC determines that the licensee’s submittal is adequate, the NRC will inform the licensee in writing that the release is approved. III. Public Meeting The NRC will conduct a public meeting to discuss DEF’s request for approval of the partial site release. The meeting will be held on Thursday, April 25, 2019, from 7:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m., Eastern Time, at the Holiday Inn Express Crystal River, 1203 NE 5th Street, Crystal River, Florida 34429. This is a Category 3 public meeting where stakeholders are invited to fully engage NRC staff to provide a range of views, information, concerns and suggestions with regard to regulatory issues. After the licensee and the NRC staff presentation portion of the meeting, the public is allowed to speak and ask questions. Comments can be provided orally or in writing to the NRC staff present at the meeting. The NRC will consider and, if appropriate, E:\FR\FM\08APN1.SGM 08APN1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 67 / Monday, April 8, 2019 / Notices respond to these written and verbal comments, but such comments will not otherwise constitute part of the decisional record.

Nuclear Regulatory Commission. ACTION: Confirmatory order; issuance. AGENCY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing a Confirmatory Order to Prime NDT Services, Inc. (Prime NDT) to memorialize the agreement reached during an alternative dispute resolution mediation session held on January 10, 2019, with additional communication on January 23, 2019, and January 29, 2019, and March 12–14, 2019. This Order will resolve any issues identified during a reactive NRC inspection that evaluated the circumstances of the September 1, 2018, theft of a vehicle that Prime NDT was using to transport a radiography camera in Ripley, West Virginia. The vehicle and camera were recovered about three hours later, and there was no actual impact to public health and safety. However, as documented in the subject inspection report, the NRC identified one or more apparent violations associated with the event. Because the apparent violation(s) pertain to security-related information, the number and details are not publiclyavailable. The Confirmatory Order is effective upon issuance. DATES: April 8, 2019.

[Docket No. 03020982; License No. 3723370-01; EA-18-131] (EFFECTIVE UPON ISSUANCE) I Prime NDT Services, Inc. (Prime NDT) is the holder of byproduct materials License No. 37-23370-01 issued by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or Commission) pursuant to Part 30 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), ‘‘Rules of General Applicability to Domestic Licensing of Byproduct Material.’’ The license authorizes the use of byproduct materials by Prime NDT, in accordance with conditions specified therein. Prime NDT has corporate offices in Schnecksville, Pennsylvania and Strasburg, Ohio, but is authorized to PO 00000 Frm 00110 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 13971 conduct licensed activities at temporary jobsites at locations in the United States that are under NRC jurisdiction. This Confirmatory Order is the result of an agreement reached during an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) mediation session conducted on January 10, 2019, and additional communication on January 23, 2019, January 29, 2019, and March 12-14, 2019. II On November 15, 2018, the NRC issued Inspection Report No. 03020982/ 2018002 to Prime NDT. The report documented the results of a reactive inspection conducted in response to an event reported by Prime NDT on September 1, 2018, involving the theft of a company vehicle that was transporting a radiography source in Ripley, West Virginia (ref. Event Notification No. 53577). The truck and the source were recovered approximately three hours later, and there was no actual impact to public health and safety from the event. However, in the inspection report, the NRC documented one or more apparent violations of security requirements identified by the NRC as being considered for escalated enforcement action in accordance with the NRC Enforcement Policy. By letter dated November 15, 2018, the NRC notified Prime NDT of the results of the inspection with an opportunity to: (1) provide a response in writing; (2) attend a pre-decisional enforcement conference; or (3) participate in an ADR mediation session in an effort to resolve these concerns. In response to the NRC’s offer, Prime NDT requested the use of the NRC’s ADR process. On January 10, 2019, the NRC and Prime NDT met in an ADR session mediated by a professional mediator, arranged through Cornell University’s Institute on Conflict Resolution. The ADR process is one in which a neutral mediator, with no decision-making authority, assists the parties in reaching an agreement on resolving any differences regarding the dispute. This Confirmatory Order is issued pursuant to the agreement reached during the ADR process. III During the ADR session, Prime NDT and the NRC reached a preliminary settlement agreement. The elements of the agreement include the following: A. Items to Prevent Reoccurrence: 1. Within 180 days of the date of the Confirmatory Order, Prime NDT will install a tracking system in each of its trucks (both owned and rented) used to E:\FR\FM\08APN1.SGM 08APN1

II. Background

    The NRC received a request for approval of a partial site release 
from DEF (the licensee), by letter dated January 22, 2019 (ADAMS 
Package Accession No. ML19029A018). DEF requests NRC approval to remove 
and release from its title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 
CFR), part 50 license the portions of the site that the Historical Site 
Assessment (HSA) characterization process has classified as 
radiologically non-impacted, in accordance with 10 CFR 50.83(b). The 
property that is subject to this release request is an approximately 
3,854-acre parcel of land that the licensee states was not used for

    The CR3 license (NRC License No. DPR-72, Docket No. 50-302) is for 
a power reactor under 10 CFR part 50, ``Domestic Licensing of 
Production and Utilization Facilities.'' The facility was certified as 
permanently shut down, per NRC regulations in 10 CFR 50.82(a), by 
letter dated February 20, 2013. CR3 is currently in ``SAFSTOR'' 
decommissioning mode awaiting the termination of the power reactor

    As described in 10 CFR 50.83(c), the NRC will determine whether the 
licensee has adequately evaluated the effect of releasing the 
properties per the requirements of 10 CFR 50.83(a)(1), determine 
whether the licensee's classification of any released areas as ``non-
impacted'' is adequately justified, and if the NRC determines that the 
licensee's submittal is adequate, the NRC will inform the licensee in 
writing that the release is approved.

    The NRC will conduct a public meeting to discuss DEF's request for 
approval of the partial site release. The meeting will be held on
