Office of International Regimes and Agreements; Proposed Subsequent Arrangement
This notice is being issued under the authority of section 131 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (42 U.S.C. 2160). The Department is providing notice of a proposed ``subsequent arrangement'' under the Agreement for Cooperation in the Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Energy between the United States and the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom) and the Agreement for Cooperation in the Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Energy between the United States and Canada. This subsequent arrangement concerns the retransfer of 325,443.8 kg of Natural UF6 (67.6% U), containing 220,000 kg of Uranium. This material will be retransferred from Cameco Corporation, Port Hope Ontario, to Urenco Ltd., Alemlo, Netherlands to be enriched and returned to the United States for use as fuel in the nuclear power plants by the Pacific Gas and Electric Company, Pismo Beach, CA. The material originally was exported to Canada pursuant to NRC Export License Number XSOU-8798. Urenco is authorized to receive nuclear material pursuant to the U.S.-Euratom Agreement for Cooperation. In accordance with Section 131 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, we have determined that this subsequent arrangement will not be inimical to the common defense and security. This subsequent arrangement will take effect no sooner than fifteen days after the date of publication of this notice.
