I. Discussion lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with PROPOSALS1 On July 1, 2021, the NRC solicited comments on the proposed NuScale small modular reactor design certification. The NRC proposed amendments to its regulations so that applicants or licensees intending to construct and operate a NuScale standard design may do so by referencing the design certification rule. The public comment period was originally scheduled to close on August 30, 2021. On July 27, 2021, the NRC received a public comment (ADAMS Accession No. ML21209A763) requesting that the comment period for the proposed rule be extended by an additional 90 days. The request states that due to the large volume of related documents that need to be reviewed, additional time is needed to submit comments. No specific basis was given for requesting an additional 90 days to prepare comments. The NRC seeks to ensure that the public has a reasonable opportunity to provide the NRC with comments on this proposed action. The NRC acknowledges that the rulemaking documents contain a significant amount of information. However, the NRC is also responsible for deciding whether to issue a design certification within a reasonable time. Accordingly, to balance these interests, the NRC has decided to extend the comment period for the proposed rule for an additional 45 days. A 45-day extension provides a reasonable opportunity for all stakeholders to review these documents and to develop informed comments on these documents, while not unduly delaying the NRC’s final decision on the design certification. The NRC has decided to extend the public comment period for the proposed rule until October 14, 2021, to allow more time for members of the public to submit their comments. Dated: August 17, 2021.

AGENCY: The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2018–19–28, which applies to certain Embraer S.A.

AD 2014– 16–16 requires, for certain airplanes, retorquing and replacing the pylon lower link fittings, and for all airplanes, repetitively retorquing those fittings. AD 2018–19–28 requires modifying the attaching parts of the pylon lower link fittings. Since the FAA issued AD 2014– 16–16 and AD 2018–19–28, the FAA finds it necessary to change the compliance time for the modification.

additional 45 days to allow more time for members of the public to 
develop and submit their comments.

I. Discussion

    On July 1, 2021, the NRC solicited comments on the proposed NuScale 
small modular reactor design certification. The NRC proposed amendments 
to its regulations so that applicants or licensees intending to 
construct and operate a NuScale standard design may do so by 
referencing the design certification rule. The public comment period 
was originally scheduled to close on August 30, 2021.
    On July 27, 2021, the NRC received a public comment (ADAMS 
Accession No. ML21209A763) requesting that the comment period for the 
proposed rule be extended by an additional 90 days. The request states 
that due to the large volume of related documents that need to be 
reviewed, additional time is needed to submit comments. No specific 
basis was given for requesting an additional 90 days to prepare 
comments.
    The NRC seeks to ensure that the public has a reasonable 
opportunity to provide the NRC with comments on this proposed action. 
The NRC acknowledges that the rulemaking documents contain a 
significant amount of information. However, the NRC is also responsible 
for deciding whether to issue a design certification within a 
reasonable time. Accordingly, to balance these interests, the NRC has 
decided to extend the comment period for the proposed rule for an 
additional 45 days. A 45-day extension provides a reasonable 
opportunity for all stakeholders to review these documents and to 
develop informed comments on these documents, while not unduly delaying 
the NRC's final decision on the design certification.
    The NRC has decided to extend the public comment period for the 
proposed rule until October 14, 2021, to allow more time for members of 
the public to submit their comments.

    Dated: August 17, 2021.
