Nuclear Regulatory Commission March 10, 2021 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

New York State Energy Research and Development Authority; Irradiated Nuclear Fuel Processing Plant; Western New York State Nuclear Service Center
Document Number: 2021-05001
Type: Notice
Date: 2021-03-10
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering issuance of an amendment to Facility Provisional Operating License No. CSF-1 for provisional operation of the Irradiated Nuclear Fuel Processing Plant located at the Western New York Nuclear Service Center (WNYNSC), in Cattaraugus and Erie Counties, New York. The proposed amendment would amend the Radiation Protection Plan for the ``retained premises of the licensed area'' for modernization. In addition, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), the licensee, requested that the license be amended to clarify NYSERDA's health and safety and other responsibilities under the license. NYSERDA defines the ``retained premises of the licensed area'' as the area consisting of the WNYNSC, not including the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) West Valley Demonstration Project (WVDP) premises and the State Licensed Disposal Area (SDA).
ADP CR3, LLC; Crystal River Unit 3 Nuclear Plant
Document Number: 2021-04997
Type: Notice
Date: 2021-03-10
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing an exemption in response to a January 19, 2021, request from ADP CR3, LLC (ADP CR3) for the Crystal River Unit 3 Nuclear Plant, from the requirement to investigate and report to the NRC when ADP CR3 does not receive notification of receipt of a shipment, or part of a shipment, of low-level radioactive waste within 20 days after transfer from the Crystal River facility. ADP CR3 requested that the time period for it to receive acknowledgement that the shipment has been received by the intended recipient be extended from 20 to 45 days to avoid an excessive administrative burden as operational experience indicates that rail or mixed mode shipments may take more than 20 days to reach their destination.
Fresh and Spent Fuel Pool Criticality Analyses
Document Number: 2021-04955
Type: Notice
Date: 2021-03-10
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing a new Regulatory Guide (RG) 1.240, ``Fresh and Spent Fuel Pool Criticality Analyses.'' This regulatory guide (RG) describes an approach that the staff of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) considers acceptable to demonstrate that NRC regulatory requirements are met for subcriticality of fuel assemblies stored in fresh fuel vaults and spent fuel pools at light-water reactor (LWR) power plants. It endorses, with clarifications and exceptions, the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) guidance document NEI 12 16, ``Guidance for Performing Criticality Analyses of Fuel Storage at Light Water Reactor Power Plants,'' Revision 4.
