Guidance for Implementation of 10 CFR 50.59, “Changes, Tests and Experiments,” at Non-Power Production or Utilization Facilities, 66464-66465 [2021-25260]

Download as PDF lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with PROPOSALS1 66464 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 223 / Tuesday, November 23, 2021 / Proposed Rules suggests that this decline is a continuation of an industry trend. In addition, the suspension of the handling and packing regulations has not adversely affected the marketing of Washington apricots. Evidence from the past 7 years showed that apricots can be marketed from the production area in the absence of the Order’s requirements without a negative economic impact on the industry. After considering the alternative, the Committee concluded that the cost to maintain the Order outweighed its benefit to producers and handlers and, therefore, unanimously voted to suspend the reporting requirements and collection of assessments beginning with 2021 fiscal period, and to terminate the Order. This action would suspend the reporting and assessment obligations imposed on handlers. When in effect, assessments are applied uniformly on all handlers, and some of those costs may be passed on to producers. The suspension of the reporting and assessment requirements would reduce the regulatory burden on handlers and would be expected to reduce the burden on producers. In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), the Order’s information collection requirements have been previously approved by OMB and assigned OMB No. 0581–0189 Fruit Crops. No changes are necessary in those requirements because of this proposed action. Should any changes become necessary, they would be submitted to OMB for approval. This rule would not impose any additional reporting or recordkeeping requirements on either small or large apricot handlers. As with all Federal marketing order programs, reports and forms are periodically reviewed to reduce information requirements and duplication by industry and public sector agencies. In addition, USDA has not identified any relevant Federal rules that duplicate, overlap or conflict with this proposed rule. AMS is committed to complying with the E-Government Act, to promote the use of the internet and other information technologies to provide increased opportunities for citizen access to Government information and services, and for other purposes. The Committee’s meetings were widely publicized throughout the Washington apricot industry, and all interested persons are invited to attend the meetings and participate in Committee deliberations on all issues. Meetings are held virtually or in a hybrid style with participants having a VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:20 Nov 22, 2021 Jkt 256001 choice whether to attend in person or virtually. A small business guide on complying with fruit, vegetable, and specialty crop marketing agreements and orders may be viewed at: https:// www.ams.usda.gov/rules-regulations/ moa/small-businesses. Any questions about the compliance guide should be sent to Richard Lower at the previously mentioned address in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section. A 60-day comment period is provided to allow interested persons to respond to this proposal. All written comments timely received will be considered before a final determination is made on this matter.

Guidance for Implementation of 10 CFR 50.59, ``Changes, Tests and 
Experiments,'' at Non-Power Production or Utilization Facilities

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Draft regulatory guide; request for comment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing for 
public comment a draft regulatory guide (DG), DG-2007, ``Guidance for 
Implementation of 10 CFR 50.59, ``Changes, Tests and Experiments,'' at

B. Submitting Comments

    The NRC encourages electronic comment submission through the 
Federal rulemaking website (https://www.regulations.gov). Please 
include Docket ID NRC-2021-0194 in your comment submission.
    The NRC cautions you not to include identifying or contact 
information that you do not want to be publicly disclosed in your

https://www.regulations.gov as well as enter the comment submissions 
into ADAMS. The NRC does not routinely edit comment submissions to

publicly disclosed in their comment submission. Your request should 
state that the NRC does not routinely edit comment submissions to 
remove such information before making the comment submissions available 
to the public or entering the comment into ADAMS.

II. Additional Information

    The NRC is issuing for public comment a DG in the NRC's 
``Regulatory Guide'' series. This series was developed to describe 
methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific 
parts of the agency's regulations, to explain techniques that the staff 
uses in evaluating specific issues or postulated events, and to 
describe information that the staff needs in its review of applications 
for permits and licenses.
    The DG, entitled ``Guidance for Implementation of 10 CFR 50.59, 
``Changes, Tests and Experiments,'' at Non-power Production or 
Utilization Facilities,'' is temporarily identified by its task number, 
DG-2007 (ADAMS Accession No. ML21243A103).
    This DG, if finalized, would describe an approach that is 
acceptable to the staff of the NRC to meet the regulatory requirements 
of Sec.  50.59 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) 
at NPUFs, as defined in the DG. It would endorse, with clarifications 
and an exception, Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) 21-06, ``Guidelines 
for 10 CFR 50.59 Implementation at Non-power Production and Utilization 
Facilities,'' issued August 2021 (ADAMS Accession No. ML21236A089).
    The staff is also issuing for public comment a draft regulatory 
analysis (ADAMS Accession No. ML21243A104) for DG-1389. The staff 
developed the regulatory analysis to assess the value of issuing DG-
2007 as well as alternative courses of action.

III. Backfitting, Forward Fitting, and Issue Finality

    The issuance of this DG, if finalized, would not constitute 
backfitting, as that term is defined in 10 CFR 50.109, ``Backfitting,'' 
because Sec.  50.109 does not apply to research reactors, testing 
facilities, and other non-power facilities licensed under 10 CFR part 
50, as documented in the preamble to the proposed rule, ``Non-Power 
Production or Utilization Facility License Renewal'' (82 FR 15643; 
March 30, 2017).

    Dated: November 15, 2021.
