SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Discussion Pursuant to section 2.106 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), the NRC is providing notice of the issuance of new License SNM–7004 to JHU/APL, which authorizes JHU/APL to possess and use SNM for research and development programs at its location in Laurel, Maryland. This licensee’s original application for a license was made on December 23, 2016 (ADAMS Accession No. ML17018A080). Because the licensed material will be used for research and development purposes, issuance of License SNM–7004 is an action that is categorically excluded from a requirement to prepare an environmental assessment or environmental impact statement, pursuant to 10 CFR 51.22(c)(14)(v). A notice of receipt of the license renewal application with an opportunity to request a hearing and petition for leave to intervene was published in the Federal Register on December 15, 2017 (82 FR 59660). The NRC did not receive a request for a hearing or for a petition for leave to intervene. This license complies with the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, and the NRC’s rules and regulations as set forth in 10 CFR chapter 1. Accordingly, the license was issued on February 22, 2019, and was effective immediately. The NRC prepared a safety evaluation report for the issuance of License SNM– 7004 and concluded that the licensee VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:18 Apr 11, 2019 Jkt 247001 can operate the facility without endangering the health and safety of the public.

If the staff receives new information that suggests the staff’s determination on any of these ITAAC is incorrect, then the staff will determine whether to reopen that ITAAC (including withdrawing the staff’s determination on that ITAAC). The NRC staff’s determination will be used to support a subsequent finding, pursuant to 10 CFR 52.103(g), at the end of construction that all acceptance VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:18 Apr 11, 2019 Jkt 247001 criteria in the combined license are met. The ITAAC closure process is not finalized for these ITAAC until the NRC makes an affirmative finding under 10 CFR 52.103(g).
