Discussion The NRC has terminated License No. SNM–180, held by UTX–A at its Nuclear Engineering Teaching Laboratory (NETL). The NETL used SNM to supplement its training program in the field of nuclear engineering. The licensed materials were to be used in experiments in the NETL at the J.J. Pickle Research Campus in Austin, Texas. The license was most recently renewed on November 13, 2009 and was due for renewal in November 2019. Instead, due to a change in the direction of research activities at the NETL resulting in the disuse of licensed SNM, UTX–A arranged to ship the licensed SNM to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. By letter dated November 15, 2019, the NETL forwarded notification to the NRC that packaging and shipment to DOE had been completed. UTX–A’s initial license was issued February 27, 1958, and the most recent renewal was issued on November 13, 2009. However, the SNM licensed for use by UTX–A had been in storage and unused since prior to the last license renewal. An application to terminate the license was received by the NRC on E:\FR\FM\16MRN1.SGM 16MRN1 14981 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 51 / Monday, March 16, 2020 / Notices November 15, 2019. The NRC staff prepared a safety evaluation report for the termination of SNM–180 and concluded that this license termination complies with the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, section 70.38 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), and other applicable NRC’s rules and regulations as set forth in 10 CFR chapter 1.

The renewed license SNM– 2510 authorizes and requires operation of the Rancho Seco ISFSI in accordance with the provisions of the renewed license and its technical specifications. The renewed license will expire on June 30, 2060. The licensee’s application for a renewed license complies with the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the NRC’s rules and regulations. The NRC has made appropriate findings as required by the Act and the NRC’s regulations in chapter 1 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), and sets forth those findings in the renewed license. The agency afforded an opportunity for a hearing in the Notice of Opportunity for a Hearing published in the Federal Register on August 22, 2018 (83 FR 42527). The NRC received no request for a hearing or petition for leave to intervene following the notice. The NRC staff prepared a safety evaluation report for the renewal of the ISFSI license and concluded, based on that evaluation, the ISFSI will continue to meet the regulations in 10 CFR part 72. The NRC staff also prepared an environmental assessment and finding of no significant impact for the renewal of this license, which were published in the Federal Register on March 6, 2020 (85 FR 13191, Docket ID NRC–2019– 0148).
