Download as PDF 2446 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 10 / Wednesday, January 15, 2020 / Notices Pursuant to the 2015 Improvements Act, today the NRC published in the Rules section of the Federal Register a revision to § 2.205(j), increasing the maximum CMP for a violation of the AEA to $303,471 per violation, per day. This adjustment requires a corresponding revision to the NRC Enforcement Policy. Specifically, the maximum CMP amount found in Section 8.0, ‘‘Table of Base Civil Penalties’’ of the NRC Enforcement Policy is being updated to $300,000, consistent with the NRC’s existing practice of rounding the maximum CMP amount codified in § 2.205(j) down to the nearest multiple of $10,000. Lesser CMP amounts in the table of base civil penalties are also being adjusted to maintain the same proportional relationship amongst the penalty amounts, except for item ‘‘f.’’, which is based on the estimated or actual cost of authorized disposal and not on the monetary value codified in § 2.205(j). Accordingly, the NRC has revised its Policy to read as follows: 8.0—TABLE OF BASE CIVIL PENALTIES Table A a. Power reactors, gaseous diffusion uranium enrichment plants, and high-level waste repository .................................................. b. Fuel fabricators authorized to possess Category I or II quantities of SNM and uranium conversion facilities .............................. c. All other fuel fabricators, including facilities under construction, authorized to possess Category III quantities of SNM, industrial processors, independent spent fuel and monitored retrievable storage installations, mills, gas centrifuge and laser uranium enrichment facilities ................................................................................................................................................................. d. Test reactors, contractors, waste disposal licensees, industrial radiographers, and other large material users ........................... e. Research reactors, academic, medical, or other small material users ........................................................................................... f. Loss, abandonment, or improper transfer or disposal of regulated material, regardless of the use or type of licensee: 1. Sources or devices with a total activity greater than 3.7 × 104 MBq (1 Curie), excluding hydrogen-3 (tritium) .................... 2. Other sources or devices containing the materials and quantities listed in 10 CFR 31.5(c)(13)(i) ........................................ 3. Sources and devices not otherwise described above ............................................................................................................. g.

Existing collection of information were approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), approval numbers 3150–0010 and 3150–0136.
