Download as PDF 40694 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 130 / Tuesday, July 7, 2020 / Notices officer has been appointed, the Chief Administrative Judge, or if he or she is unavailable, another administrative judge, or an Administrative Law Judge with jurisdiction pursuant to 10 CFR 2.318(a); or (c) if another officer has been designated to rule on information access issues, with that officer. If challenges to the NRC staff determinations are filed, these procedures give way to the normal process for litigating disputes concerning access to information. The availability of interlocutory review by the Commission of orders ruling on such NRC staff determinations (whether granting or denying access) is governed by 10 CFR 2.311.3 I. The Commission expects that the NRC staff and presiding officers (and any other reviewing officers) will consider and resolve requests for access to SUNSI, and motions for protective orders, in a timely fashion in order to minimize any unnecessary delays in identifying those petitioners who have standing and who have propounded contentions meeting the specificity and basis requirements in 10 CFR part 2. The attachment to this Order summarizes the general target schedule for processing and resolving requests under these procedures. It is so ordered. Dated: June 6, 2020. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Annette L. Vietti-Cook, Secretary of the Commission. ATTACHMENT 1—GENERAL TARGET SCHEDULE FOR PROCESSING AND RESOLVING REQUESTS FOR ACCESS TO SENSITIVE UNCLASSIFIED NON-SAFEGUARDS INFORMATION IN THIS PROCEEDING Day Event/activity 0 ........................ Publication of Federal Register notice of hearing and opportunity to petition for leave to intervene, including order with instructions for access requests. Deadline for submitting requests for access to Sensitive Unclassified Non-Safeguards Information (SUNSI) with information: Supporting the standing of a potential party identified by name and address; describing the need for the information in order for the potential party to participate meaningfully in an adjudicatory proceeding. Deadline for submitting petition for intervention containing: (i) Demonstration of standing; and (ii) all contentions whose formulation does not require access to SUNSI (+25 Answers to petition for intervention; +7 petitioner/requestor reply). U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) staff informs the requestor of the staff’s determination whether the request for access provides a reasonable basis to believe standing can be established and shows need for SUNSI. (NRC staff also informs any party to the proceeding whose interest independent of the proceeding would be harmed by the release of the information.) If NRC staff makes the finding of need for SUNSI and likelihood of standing, NRC staff begins document processing (preparation of redactions or review of redacted documents). If NRC staff finds no ‘‘need’’ or no likelihood of standing, the deadline for petitioner/requestor to file a motion seeking a ruling to reverse the NRC staff’s denial of access; NRC staff files copy of access determination with the presiding officer (or Chief Administrative Judge or other designated officer, as appropriate). If NRC staff finds ‘‘need’’ for SUNSI, the deadline for any party to the proceeding whose interest independent of the proceeding would be harmed by the release of the information to file a motion seeking a ruling to reverse the NRC staff’s grant of access. Deadline for NRC staff reply to motions to reverse NRC staff determination(s). (Receipt +30) If NRC staff finds standing and need for SUNSI, deadline for NRC staff to complete information processing and file motion for Protective Order and draft Non-Disclosure Affidavit. Deadline for applicant/licensee to file Non-Disclosure Agreement for SUNSI. If access granted: Issuance of presiding officer or other designated officer decision on motion for protective order for access to sensitive information (including schedule for providing access and submission of contentions) or decision reversing a final adverse determination by the NRC staff. Deadline for filing executed Non-Disclosure Affidavits. Access provided to SUNSI consistent with decision issuing the protective order. Deadline for submission of contentions whose development depends upon access to SUNSI. However, if more than 25 days remain between the petitioner’s receipt of (or access to) the information and the deadline for filing all other contentions (as established in the notice of opportunity to request a hearing and petition for leave to intervene), the petitioner may file its SUNSI contentions by that later deadline. (Contention receipt +25) Answers to contentions whose development depends upon access to SUNSI. (Answer receipt +7) Petitioner/Intervenor reply to answers. Decision on contention admission. 10 ...................... 60 ...................... 20 ...................... 25 ...................... 30 ...................... 40 ......................

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: North Billerica, and at 700 Summer St., Conley Terminal in the Port of Boston. Passport was contracted by the DHS to develop new technologies to detect special nuclear materials in cargo containers. The program included utilizing SNM placed inside fully loaded cargo containers and other concealments during testing of proprietary equipment to determine if it can locate SNM sources placed inside containers when surrounded by the cargo. The materials used consisted of Low Enriched Uranium and High Enriched Uranium constructed for DHS. The SNM consisted of SNM produced by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, a highly enriched uranium metal source, low enriched uranium metal sources, and uranium oxides (U02 and U308). The sources used under this license were constructed by and owned by the Department of Energy, who retains ownership. The initial application for this license was received on November 5, 2010. The NRC issued Passport’s SNM license on December 12, 2011. Prior to submitting its request for license termination on October 16, 2019, during NRC staff inspections of Passport’s main office in North Billerica, MA, and its field office in the Port of Boston on August 29–30, 2018, and March 19, 2019, respectively, Passport stated that it had discussed its intention to terminate their SNM–2016 license since it no longer needed the sources for development of their cargo inspection system. Passport’s use of the licensed materials was for testing newly developed detection equipment. Therefore, consistent section 51.22(c)(14)(v) of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), the initial licensing action was categorically excluded from the need to prepare an Environmental Assessment or an Environmental Impact Statement. The NRC staff prepared a safety evaluation report for the termination of SNM–2018. This license termination complies with 10 CFR 70.38, the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, and the NRC’s rules and regulations as set forth in 10 CFR Chapter I. Accordingly, this license termination was issued on May 4, 2020. I. Discussion II.
