Information Collection: Standards for Protection Against Radiation, 15273-15274 [2021-05819]

Download as PDF 15273 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 53 / Monday, March 22, 2021 / Notices drug test results are negative within 5 business days of specimen collection or administratively withdraw FFD authorization until the drug test results are received. According to the application, during the week of February 15, 2021, severe winter weather caused substantial service disruptions at the FedEx® Express shipping service hub in Memphis, Tennessee. The weather delayed shipments and delivery of drug and alcohol test specimens for approximately 435 outage workers granted temporary access to LSCS. This delay could result in FFD authorization being removed for these individuals and Exelon’s inability to timely restore LSCS to the electrical grid to serve the public and the Nation’s economic infrastructure. To avoid this possibility, Exelon requested a temporary exemption from 10 CFR 26.65(d)(1)(ii) and 26.65(e)(2)(iii)(B) to allow for extending the 5 business days requirement to 15 business days. Upon review, the NRC determined that pursuant to 10 CFR 26.9, the requested exemption is authorized by law, will not endanger life or property or the common defense and security, and is otherwise in the public interest. Therefore, the NRC granted the licensee’s request to temporarily exempt LSCS from the requirements in 10 CFR 26.65(d)(1)(ii) and 10 CFR 26.65(e)(2)(iii)(B). The exemption was effective upon issuance and remained in effect for the specimen shipments then in transit and any subsequent shipments made through February 26, 2021, to allow time to arrange alternative shipping, if possible. II. Availability of Documents The table in this notice provides the facility name, docket numbers, document descriptions, and ADAMS accession numbers related to the issued exemption. Additional details on the issued exemption, including the exemption request submitted by the licensee and the NRC’s decision, are provided in the documents listed in the table in this notice.
