The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is denying a petition for rulemaking (PRM), dated May 7, 2012, submitted by Mr. Sean Chapel (the petitioner) on behalf of the Association of Device Distributors and Manufacturers (ADDM). The petition was docketed by the NRC on May 24, 2012, and was assigned Docket No. PRM-32-7. The petitioner requested that the NRC create a new regulation for exempt devices similar to the NRC's regulations for generally licensed devices. The petitioner also requested that the NRC change the Agreement State compatibility designation of the regulations applicable to generally licensed devices that are specified in Sec. 31.6 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) from ``C'' to ``B''. The NRC is denying the petition because the petitioner failed to present any significant new information or arguments that would support the requested changes, nor has he demonstrated a need for a new provision for exempt devices.
