SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On October 3, 2019, DOE published a NOPR in the Federal Register (84 FR 52819) to propose procedures for the imposition of civil penalties for violations of the provisions of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 (AEA) that restrict participation by U.S. persons in the development or production of special nuclear material outside of the United States. The proposed procedures would be incorporated in the DOE regulations on Assistance to Foreign Atomic Energy Activities (10 CFR part 810). Comments on the proposed procedures were due by November 4, 2019. On October 18, 2019, DOE received a comment from Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) requesting a 90-day comment period extension. DOE has reviewed the NEI request and considered the benefit to the public in providing additional time for comments on the NOPR. DOE has also considered the fact that timely implementation of this rule is important for national security, since the proposed PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 civil penalties procedures would serve to deter illicit transfers of controlled nuclear technology and assistance. Accordingly, DOE has determined that an extension of the comment period is appropriate and is hereby extending the comment period by 30 days, until December 4, 2019. DOE has determined to not hold a public meeting because the resources necessary to do so are greater than the benefit that could be achieved. DOE assesses that a 30 day extension strikes an appropriate balance between the requestor’s desire for additional time and the national security benefits of implementing this rulemaking on a timely basis.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On October 3, 2019, DOE published a NOPR in 
the Federal Register (84 FR 52819) to propose procedures for the 
imposition of civil penalties for violations of the provisions of the 
Atomic Energy Act of 1954 (AEA) that restrict participation by U.S. 
persons in the development or production of special nuclear material 
outside of the United States. The proposed procedures would be 
incorporated in the DOE regulations on Assistance to Foreign Atomic 
Energy Activities (10 CFR part 810). Comments on the proposed 
procedures were due by November 4, 2019. On October 18, 2019, DOE 
received a comment from Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) requesting a 90-
day comment period extension. DOE has reviewed the NEI request and 
considered the benefit to the public in providing additional time for 
comments on the NOPR. DOE has also considered the fact that timely 
implementation of this rule is important for national security, since 
the proposed civil penalties procedures would serve to deter illicit 
transfers of controlled nuclear technology and assistance.
    Accordingly, DOE has determined that an extension of the comment 
period is appropriate and is hereby extending the comment period by 30 
days, until December 4, 2019. DOE has determined to not hold a public 
meeting because the resources necessary to do so are greater than the 
benefit that could be achieved. DOE assesses that a 30 day extension 
strikes an appropriate balance between the requestor's desire for 
additional time and the national security benefits of implementing this 
rulemaking on a timely basis.
