VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:56 Oct 04, 2021 Jkt 256001 Request for information (RFI). DOE, in accordance with Section 3174 of the American Medical Isotopes Production Act of 2012 (AMIPA), is preparing for a Secretarial certification regarding the sufficiency of supply of non-HEU based Mo-99. DOE is seeking public input as part of its certification development process and analysis to determine the sufficiency of Mo-99 supply to meet U.S. patient needs. SUMMARY: DOE will accept comments, data, and information in response to this RFI on or before November 4, 2021. ADDRESSES: Interested persons may submit comments via email to the Office of Conversion at OfficeofConversion@ nnsa.doe.gov. Although DOE has routinely accepted public comment submissions through a variety of mechanisms, including postal mail and hand delivery/courier, the Department has found it necessary to make temporary modifications to the comment submission process in light of the ongoing coronavirus (COVID–19) pandemic. DOE is currently accepting only electronic submissions at this time. If a commenter finds that this change poses an undue hardship, please contact the Office of Conversion at OfficeofConversion@nnsa.doe.gov to discuss the need for alternative arrangements. Once the COVID–19 pandemic health emergency is resolved, DOE anticipates resuming all of its regular options for public comment submission, including postal mail and hand delivery/courier. No facsimiles (faxes) will be accepted. Instructions: All submissions received must include the agency name and title for this RFI in Microsoft Word or PDF file format and avoid the use of special characters or any form of encryption.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: I. Authority and Background BILLING CODE 6450–01–P AGENCY: ACTION: The U.S. medical community depends on a reliable supply of the radioisotope Mo-99 for nuclear medical diagnostic procedures. Approximately 80 percent of these procedures depend on the use of technetium-99m (Tc-99m), a decay product of Mo-99. Tc-99m is used in over 40,000 medical procedures every day in the United States. Its primary uses include diagnosing heart disease and cancer, as well as studying organ structure and function. Historically, the United States has not had the capability PO 00000 Frm 00046 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 54961 to produce Mo-99 domestically and, until 2018, imported 100 percent of its supply from international producers, some of which supply was produced using targets fabricated with proliferation-sensitive HEU. AMIPA (Subtitle F, Title XXXI of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013 (Pub. L. 112–139)), enacted on January 2, 2013, amended Section 134 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 (42 U.S.C. 2160d) by striking subsection c. and inserting language that prohibits the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) from issuing a license for the export of HEU from the United States for the purposes of medical isotope production, effective seven years after enactment of AMIPA, subject to a certification regarding the sufficiency of Mo-99 supply in the United States. Section 3174 of AMIPA requires the Secretary of Energy to either jointly certify, with the Secretary of Health and Human Services, that there is a sufficient supply of Mo-99 produced without the use of HEU available to meet U.S. patient needs, and that it is not necessary to export U.S.-origin HEU for the purposes of medical isotope production in order to meet U.S. patient needs, or, to unilaterally certify that there is insufficient global supply of Mo-99 produced without the use of HEU available to satisfy the domestic market, and that the export of U.S.-origin HEU for the purposes of medical isotope production is the most effective temporary means to increase the supply of Mo-99 to the domestic U.S. market, thereby delaying the effective date of the export license ban for up to six years. DOE published a Federal Register notice (84 FR 65378) on November 27, 2019 requesting public comment on the status of Mo-99 supplies for U.S. patients in preparation for a Secretarial certification regarding the sufficiency of supply of non-HEU based Mo-99. The Secretary of Energy certified on January 2, 2020, that, at the time, there was an insufficient global supply of Mo-99 produced without the use of HEU and that the export of U.S.-origin HEU for the purposes of medical isotope production was the most effective temporary means to increase the supply of Mo-99 to the domestic U.S. market. This certification was published in the Federal Register on January 21, 2020 (85 FR 3362). This certification was effective for no more than two years from the effective date of January 2, 2020. The Federal Register notice stated that DOE would conduct periodic reviews of the domestic U.S. and global Mo-99 markets and would work toward a certification to Congress regarding the E:\FR\FM\05OCN1.SGM 05OCN1
