William Stein III, M.D.; Receipt of Petition for Rulemaking
Document Number: E6-9246
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-06-14
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has received and requests public comment on a petition for rulemaking filed by William Stein III, M.D. (petitioner). The petition has been docketed by the NRC and has been assigned Docket No. PRM-35-19. The petitioner is requesting that the NRC amend the regulations that govern medical use of byproduct material concerning training for parenteral administration of certain radioactive drugs used to treat cancer. The petitioner believes that these regulations do not adequately consider the training necessary for a class of physicians, namely medical oncologists and hemotologists, to qualify as an Authorized User (AU) physician to administer these drugs. The petitioner requests that the regulations be amended to clearly codify an 80-hour training and experience requirement as appropriate and sufficient for physicians desiring to attain AU status for these unsealed byproduct materials.

Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The NRC is preparing a submittal to OMB for review of continued approval of information collections under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). Information pertaining to the requirement to be submitted: 1. The title of the information collection: NRC Form 531, Request for Taxpayer Identification Number. 2. Current OMB approval number: OMB No. 3150-0188. 3. How often the collection is required: One time from each applicant or individual to enable the Department of the Treasury to process electronic payments or collect debts owed to the Government. 4. Who is required or asked to report: All individuals doing business with the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, including contractors and recipients of credit, licenses, permits, and benefits. 5. The number of annual respondents: 300. 6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 25 hours (5 minutes per respondent). 7. Abstract: The Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996 requires that agencies collect taxpayer identification numbers (TINs) from individuals who do business with the Government, including contractors and recipients of credit, licenses, permits, and benefits. The TIN will be used to process all electronic payments (refunds) made to licensees by electronic funds transfer by the Department of the Treasury. The Department of the Treasury will use the TIN to determine whether the refund can be used to administratively offset any delinquent debts reported to the Treasury by other government agencies. In addition, the TIN will be used to collect and report to the Department of the Treasury any delinquent indebtedness arising out of the licensee's or applicant's relationship with the NRC. Submit, by August 1, 2006, comments that address the following questions: 1. Is the proposed collection of information necessary for the NRC to properly perform its functions? Does the information have practical utility? 2. Is the burden estimate accurate? 3. Is there a way to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected? 4. How can the burden of the information collection be minimized, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology? A copy of the draft supporting statement may be viewed free of charge at the NRC Public Document Room, One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike, Room O-1 F21, Rockville, MD 20852. OMB clearance requests are available at the NRC worldwide Web site: http:// www.nrc.gov/public-involve/doc-comment/omb/index.html. The document will be available on the NRC home page site for 60 days after the signature date of this notice. Comments and questions about the information collection requirements may be directed to the NRC Clearance Officer, Brenda Jo.

Notice of Opportunity to Comment on Model Safety Evaluation on Technical Specification Improvement to Modify Requirements Regarding the Addition of LCO 3.0.9 on the Unavailability of Barriers Using the Consolidated Line Item Improvement Process
Document Number: 06-5044
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-06-02
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
Notice is hereby given that the staff of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has prepared a model safety evaluation (SE) and model application relating to the modification of requirements regarding the impact of unavailable hazard barriers, not explicitly addressed in technical specifications, but required for operability of supported systems in technical specifications (TS). The NRC staff has also prepared a model no-significant-hazards-consideration (NSHC) determination relating to this matter. The purpose of these models is to permit the NRC to efficiently process amendments that propose to add an LCO 3.0.9 that provides a delay time for entering a supported system TS when the inoperability is due solely to an unavailable hazard barrier, if risk is assessed and managed. Licensees of nuclear power reactors to which the models apply could then request amendments, confirming the applicability of the SE and NSHC determination to their reactors. The NRC staff is requesting comment on the model SE and model NSHC determination prior to announcing their availability for referencing in license amendment applications.

Notice of Availability of Draft Standard Review Plan for Activities Related to U.S. Department of Energy Waste Determinations, NUREG-1854
Document Number: E6-8347
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-05-31
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing a draft Standard Review Plan (SRP) for activities related to U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) waste determinations, for public comment. The draft SRP provides guidance to the NRC staff in evaluating non- high-level waste determinations developed by DOE for the Savannah River Site, Idaho National Laboratory, the Hanford site, and the West Valley Demonstration Project for certain wastes that are a result of the reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel. The draft SRP provides elements the NRC staff should review to determine whether there is reasonable assurance that the appropriate criteria can be met for determining that waste is incidental to reprocessing and can be managed as low-level waste. The draft SRP also provides information about the role of the NRC in the waste determination process and the NRC monitoring activities under the Ronald W. Reagan National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2005 (NDAA). The draft SRP does not set forth regulatory requirements for NRC or for DOE, and compliance with the draft SRP is not required.

Kerr-McGee Corporation; Notice of Termination of Kerr-McGee Cushing Site Special Nuclear Materials License No. SNM-1999
Document Number: E6-8274
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-05-30
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is noticing the termination of the Kerr-McGee Cushing Site SNM License, No. SNM-1999 (NRC Docket No. 70-03073), located in Cushing, Oklahoma. Background: The NRC granted SNM License SNM-1999 to Kerr-McGee for the Cushing site on April 6, 1993. The license authorized possession of uranium and thorium onsite in concentrations above background levels. The license enabled Kerr-McGee to possess contaminated soil, sludge, sediment, trash, building rubble, structures, and any other contaminated material at the Cushing site during remediation and disposal activities. Kerr-McGee remediated the site under a consent order with the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality. Kerr-McGee submitted its Decommissioning Plan (DP) on August 17, 1998, and NRC approved the DP on August 20, 1999. The licensee conducted decommissioning activities at the Cushing site in accordance with the approved DP from January 2000 to June 2005. In accordance with the DP, the licensee conducted final status surveys (FSSs) to demonstrate that the facility and site meet the criteria for unrestricted release as stated in Condition 11(N) of SNM-1999. Details of the FSS results were submitted to the NRC in 15 separate FSS reports (FSSRs). Kerr-McGee also submitted a dose assessment demonstrating that the post remediation conditions at the site meet the unrestricted release criteria of 10 CFR part 20, subpart E. Kerr-McGee submitted a request for termination of its SNM License on June 15, 2005 (ML051680329), with revisions on May 11, 2006 (ML061380781). NRC conducted a number of independent confirmatory surveys to verify FSS results obtained and reported by the licensee. Confirmatory surveys consisted of surface scans for beta and gamma radiation, direct measurements for total beta activity, collection of smear samples for determining removable radioactivity levels, and collection and analysis of soil samples. The Commission has concluded, based on the considerations discussed above, that: (i) The remaining dismantlement has been performed in accordance with the approved DP; (ii) The FSS and associated documentation demonstrate that the Cushing site meet the criteria for decommissioning and release of the site for unrestricted use that are stipulated in Condition 11(N) of SNM-1999. Further, FSSs demonstrated that the post-remediation condition of the site results in a dose less than the 25 mrem (millirem)/year (yr) unrestricted release criteria of 10 CFR part 20, subpart E; and (iii) Kerr-McGee has met the Part 70 requirements for forwarding of specific records to NRC prior to license termination. Therefore, the Commission is terminating SNM License No. SNM-1999.

Type: Rule
Date: 2006-05-30
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is amending the licensing, inspection, and annual fees charged to its applicants and licensees. The amendments are necessary to implement the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990 (OBRA-90), as amended, which requires that the NRC recover approximately 90 percent of its budget authority in fiscal year (FY) 2006, less the amounts appropriated from the Nuclear Waste Fund (NWF) and for Waste Incidental to Reprocessing (WIR) activities. The required fee recovery amount for the FY 2006 budget is approximately $624 million, which is increased by approximately $0.9 million to account for billing adjustments, resulting in a total of approximately $625 million that must be recovered through fees in FY 2006.
