List of Approved Spent Fuel Storage Casks: Transnuclear, Inc. Standardized Advanced NUHOMS® Horizontal Modular Storage System; Amendment No. 3
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is withdrawing a direct final rule that would have revised its spent fuel storage regulations to include Amendment No. 3 to Certificate of Compliance (CoC) No. 1029, Transnuclear, Inc. Standardized Advanced NUHOMS[supreg] Horizontal Modular Storage System listing within the ``List of approved spent fuel storage casks.'' The NRC is taking this action because it has received at least one significant adverse comment in response to a companion proposed rule that was concurrently published with the direct final rule.

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing, with the approval of the U.S. Attorney General, revised guidelines on the use of weapons by the security personnel of licensees and certificate holders whose official duties include the protection of a facility, certain radioactive material, or other property owned or operated by an NRC licensee or certificate holder, or of radioactive material or other property that is being transported to or from a facility owned or operated by such a licensee or certificate holder. The revised guidelines are entitled, ``Guidelines on the Use of Firearms by Security Personnel in Protecting U.S. NRC-Regulated Facilities, Radioactive Material, and Other Property, Revision 1'' (Revised Firearms Guidelines). The NRC first issued firearms guidelines on September 11, 2009.
