Document Number: 05-19931
Type: Notice

Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Commission approved a pilot program to evaluate the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) in cases involving the NRC's enforcement activities concerning allegations or findings of discrimination and other wrongdoing. See SECY-04-0044, available at www.nrc.gov. The pilot program was developed to evaluate whether the use of ADR could produce more timely and economical resolution of issues, more effective outcomes, and improved relationships. The NRC staff is now proceeding to evaluate the pilot program after approximately 1 year of operation. As an initial step in the evaluation, the NRC will be holding a public workshop on October 11, 2005, from 1-5 p.m., in room T2-B3 (ACRS Conference Room), Two White Flint North, 11545 Rockville, Maryland, to discuss proposed evaluation criteria and receive comments regarding the pilot program.

How often the collection is required: There is a one-time submittal of information to receive a validated copy of NRC Form 483 with an assigned registration number. In addition, any changes in the information reported on NRC Form 483 must be reported in writing to the Commission within 30 days after the effective date of such change. 5. Who will be required or asked to report: Any physician, veterinarian in the practice of veterinary medicine, clinical laboratory or hospital which desires a general license to receive, acquire, possess, transfer, or use specified units of byproduct material in certain in vitro clinical or laboratory tests. 6. An estimate of the number of responses: 364. 7. The estimated number of annual respondents: 364 (104 NRC licensees and 260 Agreement State licensees). 8. An estimate of the number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 42 hours (12 hours NRC licensees and 30 hours Agreement State licensees). 9. An indication of whether Section 3507(d), Public Law 104-13 applies: Not applicable. 10. Abstract: Section 31.11 of 10 CFR establishes a general license authorizing any physician, clinical laboratory, veterinarian in the practice of veterinary medicine, or hospital to possess certain small quantities of byproduct material for in vitro clinical or laboratory tests not involving the internal or external administration of the byproduct material or the radiation therefrom to human beings or animals. Possession of byproduct material under 10 CFR 31.11 is not authorized until the physician, clinical laboratory, veterinarian in the practice of veterinary medicine, or hospital has filed NRC Form 483 and received from the Commission a validated copy of NRC Form 483 with a registration number.

Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is amending its regulations to incorporate by reference NRC Regulatory Guides listing Code Cases published by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) which the NRC has reviewed and found to be acceptable for use. These Code Cases provide alternatives to requirements in the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPV Code) pertaining to construction and inservice inspection of nuclear power plant components. This action updates the incorporation by reference of two regulatory guides that address NRC review and approval of ASME-published Code Cases. Concurrent with this action, the NRC is publishing a notice of the issuance and availability of the final regulatory guides. As a result of these related actions, the Code Cases listed in these regulatory guides are incorporated by reference into the NRC's regulations.
