The extension will allow GEH to provide a complete license renewal application for NRC to review.

    The NRC issued an exemption in response to a request from GEH, 
dated April 30, 2020. The exemption allows GEH to submit a renewal 
application for the Morris Operation ISFSI license, SNM-2500, after the 
timely renewal due date of May 31, 2020, while continuing to be 
afforded protection of the timely renewal provision contained in Sec.  
72.42(c) of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR). GEH 
requested an extension of the date to submit the license renewal
