The NRC staff has no intention to impose the SRP positions on existing nuclear power plant licensees either now or in the future (absent a voluntary request for a change from the licensee, holder of a regulatory approval or a design certification applicant). The staff does not intend to impose or apply the positions described in this final SRP section to existing (already issued) licenses (e.g., operating licenses and combined licenses) and regulatory approvals. Hence, the issuance of this SRP guidance—even if considered guidance subject to the Backfit Rule or the issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52—would not need to be evaluated as if it were a backfit or as being inconsistent with issue finality provisions. If, in the future, the NRC staff seeks to impose a position in the SRP on holders of already issued licenses in a manner that would constitute backfitting or does not provide issue finality as described in the applicable issue finality provision, then the staff must make a showing as set forth in the Backfit Rule or address the criteria set forth in the applicable issue finality provision, as applicable, that would allow the staff to impose the position.

III. Proposed Prices

    In the Motion, the Postal Service requests that the Commission 
approve the addition of Inbound Letter Post Small Packets and Bulky 
Letters to the Competitive product list, effective January 1, 2020. 
Motion at 1. The Motion identifies two sets of prices that would be in 
effect in Calendar Year (CY) 2020. First, terminal dues established by 
the Universal Postal Convention and its Regulations will apply from 
January 1, 2020, to June 30, 2020. See id. at 4. Second, for countries 
with mail flows that exceed applicable annual tonnage thresholds, the 
Postal Service proposes self-declared prices, which it intends to 
implement on July 1, 2020. Id.
    The Postal Service's Motion includes redacted financial workpapers 
supporting these proposed prices and a certification pursuant to 39 CFR 
3015.5(c)(2). Id. at 1; id. Attachment 2. In addition, the Postal 
Service includes the proposed prices and underlying workpapers under 
seal. See Motion at 1-2. The Postal Service states that the specific 
per-item and per-kilogram prices and supporting unredacted workpapers 
should remain confidential. Id. at 1-2 n.2. The Postal Service further 
explains its request for non-public treatment in its application for 
non-public treatment, filed pursuant to 39 CFR part 3007. Id. 
Attachment 1.
    The Postal Service states that prices for the Inbound Letter Post 
Small Packets and Bulky Letters pieces and associated Inbound 
Competitive International Registered Mail Service would conform to the 
requirements for competitive products under 39 U.S.C. 3633. Id. at 6-8. 
The Postal Service states that, for a 12-month forward looking period, 
the revenue generated by the proposed prices for CY 2020 cover 
attributable costs, avoid cross-subsidization, and do not impede 
competitive products' collective ability to cover the appropriate share 
of institutional costs. Id. at 6. The Postal Service asserts that the 
Commission should evaluate compliance based on the 12-month period 
following the transfer, which includes both the CY 2020 terminal dues, 
which go into effect on January 1, 2020, and the self-declared prices, 
which the Postal Service intends to implement on July 1, 2020. Id. at 
7.

IV. Administrative Actions
