Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The NRC has prepared a Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) as its evaluation of a request by the TXU Generation Company LP (subsequently renamed Luminant Generation Company LLC, the licensee), for a license amendment to increase the maximum thermal power at the Comanche Peak Steam Electric Station (CPSES), Units 1 and 2, from 3458 megawatts thermal (MWt) to 3612 MWt at each unit. The NRC staff did not identify any significant impact from the information provided in the licensee's stretch power uprate (SPU) application for CPSES, Units 1 and 2 or from the NRC staff's independent review; therefore, the NRC staff is documenting its environmental review in a draft EA. The draft EA and Finding of No Significant Impact are being published in the Federal Register with a 30-day public comment period.

Expansion of the National Source Tracking System
Document Number: E8-7756
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2008-04-11
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is proposing to amend its regulations to expand the current National Source Tracking System (NSTS) to include certain additional sealed sources. The proposed amendments would require licensees to report certain transactions involving these sealed sources to the NSTS. These transactions would include the manufacture, transfer, receipt, disassembly, or disposal of the nationally tracked source. The proposed amendment would also require each licensee to provide its initial inventory of nationally tracked sources to the NSTS and annually verify and reconcile the information in the system with the licensee's actual inventory.

Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The NRC is soliciting public comment on its Proposed Interim Staff Guidance (ISG) COL/ESP-ISG-004. This ISG would replace the previous guidance issued in June 2007 in Regulatory Guide (RG) 1.206, ``Combined License Applications for Nuclear Power Plants (LWR Edition),'' concerning requests for limited work authorizations submitted as part of an early site permit or combined license application. Upon receiving public comments, the NRC staff will evaluate and disposition the comments, as appropriate. Once the NRC staff completes the COL/ESP-ISG, the staff will issue it for use. The NRC staff will also incorporate the approved COL/ESP-ISG-004 into the next revisions of the RG 1.206 and NUREG-0800, ``Standard Review Plan for the Review of Safety Analysis Reports for Nuclear Power Plants,'' and related guidance documents. Several sections of NUREG-1555, ``Environmental Standard Review Plan,'' (ESRP) are currently being revised; the public and industry have already commented on these revised sections. The NRC staff also plans to revise the rest of the ESRP sections over the next several months. The NRC staff plans to include any changes in the ESRP sections necessary for consistency with the revised LWA rule as part of that overall revision process. The NRC staff also plans to update Regulatory Guide 4.2, ``Preparation of Environmental Reports for Nuclear Power Stations,'' over the next several months. This update will also include any revisions necessary for consistency with the revised LWA rule.

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: 10 CFR Part 61 Licensing Requirements for Land Disposal of Radioactive Waste. 2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0135. 3. How often the collection is required: Applications for licenses are submitted as needed. Other reports are submitted annually and as other events require. 4. Who is required or asked to report: Applicants for and holders of an NRC license (to include Agreement States) for land disposal of low-level radioactive waste; and all generators, collectors, and processors of low-level waste intended for disposal at a low-level waste facility. 5. The number of annual respondents: 4. 6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 5,412 hours (56 hours for reporting [approximately 4.6 hours per response] and 5,356 hours for recordkeeping [approximately 1,339 hours per recordkeeper]). 7. Abstract: 10 CFR Part 61 establishes the procedures, criteria, and license terms and conditions for the land disposal of low-level radioactive waste. Reporting and recordkeeping requirements are mandatory or, in the case of application submittals, are required to obtain a benefit. The information collected in the applications, reports, and records is evaluated by the NRC to ensure that the licensee's or applicant's physical plant, equipment, organization, training, experience, procedures, and plans provide an adequate level of protection of public health and safety, common defense and security, and the environment. Submit, by June 2, 2008, 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.
