ACTION: Exemption; issuance. AGENCY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing an exemption in response to a January 19, 2021, request from ADP CR3, LLC (ADP CR3) for the Crystal River Unit 3 Nuclear Plant, from the requirement to investigate and report to the NRC when ADP CR3 does not receive notification of receipt of a shipment, or part of a shipment, of low-level radioactive waste within 20 days after transfer from the Crystal River facility. ADP CR3 requested that the time period for it to receive acknowledgement that the shipment has been received by the intended recipient be extended from 20 to 45 days to avoid an excessive administrative burden as operational experience indicates that rail or mixed mode shipments may take more than 20 days to reach their destination.

Nuclear Regulatory Commission Docket No. 50–302 ADP CR3, LLC Crystal River Unit 3 Nuclear Plant I. Background The Crystal River Unit 3 Nuclear Plant (CR–3), licensed under Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Part 50 (License No. DPR–72, Docket No. 50–302), is located in Citrus County, Florida. CR–3 has been PO 00000 Frm 00082 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 13767 shutdown since September 26, 2009. Subsequently, the licensee determined that issues with containment integrity could not be satisfactorily resolved and decided not to attempt to restart the facility. On May 28, 2011, Duke Energy Florida, LLC (DEF) completed the removal of fuel from the reactor vessel at CR–3. By letter dated February 20, 2013 (Agencywide Documents Access and Management System [ADAMS] Accession No. ML13056A005), DEF submitted to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) certifications in accordance with 10 CFR 50.82(a)(1)(i) indicating it would permanently cease power operations, and with 10 CFR 50.82(a)(1)(ii) that it had permanently defueled the reactor vessel at CR–3. The spent fuel is currently being stored onsite in a spent fuel pool (SFP). The CR–3 operating license was transferred to ADP CR3, LLC (ADP CR3) by NRC Order issued April 1, 2020 (ADAMS Accession No. ML20069A028). Upon implementation of the license transfer on October 1, 2020, ADP CR3 commenced dismantlement and decommissioning activities at the CR–3 site that included the generation of lowlevel radioactive waste. This waste is primarily destined for transfer to distant locations such as the Waste Control Specialists (WSC) disposal site in Andrews, Texas by rail or mixed mode shipment, such as a combination of truck/rail/barge shipments. II. Request/Action By letter dated January 19, 2021 (ADAMS Accession No. ML21019A464), ADP CR3 requested an exemption from 10 CFR part 20, Appendix G, ‘‘Requirements for Transfers of LowLevel Radioactive Waste Intended for Disposal at Licensed Land Disposal Facilities and Manifests,’’ section III.E, for disposals from the CR–3 facility. Section III.E requires that the shipper of any low-level radioactive waste to a licensed land disposal facility must investigate and trace the shipment if the shipper has not received notification of the shipment’s receipt by the disposal facility within 20 days after transfer. In addition, Section III.E requires licensees to report such missing shipments to the NRC. Specifically, ADP CR3 is requesting an exemption from the requirements in 10 CFR part 20, Appendix G, Section III.E, under the provisions of 10 CFR 20.2301, ‘‘Applications for exemptions,’’ to extend the time period for ADP CR3 to receive acknowledgement that the shipment has been received from 20 to 45 days after transfer for a rail or mixed E:\FR\FM\10MRN1.SGM 10MRN1
