SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Discussion khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES The NRC is issuing a revision to an existing guide in the NRC’s ‘‘Regulatory Guide’’ series. This series was developed to describe and make available to the public information regarding methods and techniques that the NRC staff uses in evaluating specific issues or postulated events, and data that the NRC staff needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses. RG 8.39 described methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the NRC’s regulations. Specifically, the RG provides licensees with instructions for patients before and after they receive medical procedures involving the administration of radioactive material, as well as requirements for recordkeeping. The RG also lists activities and dose rates that may be used by licensees for the release of patients in order to meet NRC regulatory requirements. This revision of the guide (Revision 1) provides licensees with more detailed instructions to provide to patients before and after they have been administered radioactive material than was in Revision 0. In addition, the guide includes a new section on ‘‘Death of a Patient Following Radiopharmaceutical or Implants Administrations,’’ as well as additional guidance for requirements for recordkeeping. Also, Table 3, ‘‘Activities of Radiopharmaceuticals that Require Instructions and Records when Administered to Patients who are Breastfeeding an Infant or Child,’’ has been revised to provide information for the recommended duration of interruption of breastfeeding to ensure that the dose to an infant or child meets the NRC’s regulatory requirements. II. Additional Information Proposed revision 1 of RG 8.39 was issued with a temporary identification of Draft Regulatory Guide, (DG)–8057. The NRC published a notice of the availability of DG–8057 in the Federal Register on July 29, 2019 (84 FR 36127) for a 30-day public comment period. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:22 Apr 06, 2020 Jkt 250001 III. Congressional Review Act This RG is a rule as defined in the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801–808). However, the Office of Management and Budget has not found it to be a major rule as defined in the Congressional Review Act. IV. Backfitting, Forward Fitting, and Issue Finality Revision 1 of RG 8.39 does not constitute backfitting as defined in title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) section 50.109, ‘‘Backfitting’’ and as described in NRC Management Directive (MD) 8.4, ‘‘Management of Backfitting, Forward Fitting, Issue Finality, and Information Requests’’ (ADAMS Accession No. ML18093B087); affect the issue finality of any approval issued under 10 CFR part 52, ‘‘Licenses, Certifications, and Approvals for Nuclear Power Plants;’’ or constitute forward fitting as that term is defined and described in MD 8.4. 10 CFR part 35, ‘‘Medical Use of Byproduct Material,’’ does not include backfitting or issue finality provisions and the forward fitting policy in MD 8.4 does not apply to these licensees. In addition, licensees will not be required to comply with the positions set forth in this RG. Dated: April 2, 2020. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Thomas H.

License No. DPR-72

Order Approving Transfer of Licensed Authority and Draft Conforming 
Administrative License Amendment (EA-20-045)

I

    Duke Energy Florida, LLC (DEF) is the holder of Facility Operating 
License No. DPR-72 for the Crystal River Unit 3 Nuclear Generating 
Plant (CR-3) and the general license for the CR-3 independent spent 
fuel storage installation (ISFSI) (collectively, the licenses). DEF is 
authorized to possess, maintain, and decommission CR-3 and the CR-3 
ISFSI (collectively, the CR-3 facility), which are located in Crystal 
River, Florida. The CR-3 facility is located on the Gulf coast of 
Florida approximately 80 miles north of Tampa, Florida, within the 
Crystal River Energy Complex (CREC).
    CR-3 was a 2,609 megawatts thermal single-unit pressurized light-
water reactor supplied by Babcock & Wilcox that was issued an operating 
license on January 28, 1977. By letter dated February 20, 2013 
(Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession 
No. ML13056A005), pursuant to Section 50.82(a)(1) of Title 10 of the 
Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), DEF notified the U.S. Nuclear 
Regulatory Commission (NRC, the Commission) that CR-3 had been 
permanently shut down and that all fuel had been permanently removed 
from the reactor vessel. Accordingly, pursuant to 10 CFR 50.82(a)(2), 
the 10 CFR part 50 license for CR-3 no longer authorizes operation of 
the reactor or emplacement or retention of fuel into the reactor 
vessel.

II

    By letter dated June 14, 2019 (ADAMS Accession No. ML19170A209), as 
supplemented by letters dated January 17, 2020 (ADAMS Accession No. 
ML20017A216), and March 5, 2020 (ADAMS Accession No. ML20065K737), DEF 
requested, on behalf of itself and ADP CR3, LLC (ADP CR3) 
(collectively, the Applicants), pursuant to Section 184 of the Atomic 
Energy Act of 1954, as amended, and 10 CFR 50.80, ``Transfer of 
licenses,'' and 10 CFR 72.50, ``Transfer of license,'' that the NRC 
consent to the transfer to ADP CR3 of DEF's licensed authority under 
the licenses. Specifically, DEF intends to transfer its NRC-licensed 
possession, maintenance, and decommissioning authorities to ADP CR3 for 
the purpose of completing the decommissioning of the CR-3 facility. The 
application proposed no physical or operational changes to the CR-3 
facility.
    The NRC published a notice, ``Crystal River Unit 3 Nuclear 
Generating Plant; Duke Energy Florida, LLC; Consideration of Approval 
of Transfer of License and Conforming Amendment,'' in the Federal 
Register (FR) on October 11, 2019 (84 FR 54932). The NRC did not 
receive any comments or hearing requests on the application.
    Pursuant to 10 CFR 50.80, no license for a production or 
utilization facility, or any right thereunder, shall be transferred, 
either voluntarily or involuntarily, directly or indirectly, through 
transfer of control of the license to any person, unless the Commission 
gives its consent in writing. Upon review of the information in the 
application for license transfer, as supplemented, and other 
information before the Commission, and relying upon the representations 
and agreements contained in the application, the NRC staff has 
determined that ADP CR3 is qualified to hold the licenses to the extent 
proposed, and that the transfer, as described in the application, is 
otherwise consistent with applicable provisions of law, regulations, 
and orders issued by the Commission pursuant thereto, subject to the 
condition set forth below.
    Upon review of the information in the application for a conforming 
administrative license amendment, as supplemented, the NRC staff has 
determined that:
    (1) The application for amendment complies with the standards and 
requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), 
and the Commission's rules and regulations set forth in 10 CFR Chapter 
I.
    (2) The facility will operate in conformity with the application, 
the provisions of the Act, and the rules and regulations of the 
Commission.
    (3) There is reasonable assurance that the activities authorized by 
the amendment can be conducted without endangering the health and 
safety of the public, and that such activities will be conducted in 
compliance with the Commission's regulations.
    (4) The issuance of the amendment will not be inimical to the 
common defense and security or to the health and safety of the public.
    (5) The issuance of the amendment is in accordance with 10 CFR part 
51 of the Commission's regulations and all applicable requirements have 
been satisfied.
    The findings set forth above are supported by an NRC staff safety 
evaluation dated April 1, 2020, which is available at ADAMS Accession 
No. ML20069A027.

    Accordingly, pursuant to Sections 161b, 161i, and 184 of the Act, 
42 U.S.C. Sections 2201(b), 2201(i), and 2234; and 10 CFR 50.80, 10 CFR 
72.50, and 10 CFR 50.90, it is hereby ordered that the application for 
license transfer, as described herein, is approved, subject to the 
following condition:
    Prior to the closing of the license transfer, DEF and ADP CR3 shall 
provide the Director of the NRC's Office of Nuclear Material Safety and 
Safeguards satisfactory documentary evidence that they have obtained 
the appropriate amount of insurance required of a licensee under 10 CFR 
140.11(a)(4) and 10 CFR 50.54(w), consistent with the exemptions issued 
for CR-3 on April 27, 2015, and March 31, 2016.
    It is further ordered that, consistent with 10 CFR 2.1315(b), the
