Extension of the Public Scoping Period for the Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement for Decommissioning and/or Long-Term Stewardship at the West Valley Demonstration Project and Western New York Nuclear Service Center, Notice of Floodplain and Wetlands Involvement, and Draft Scope
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) are extending the public scoping period for the Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement for Decommissioning and/or Long-Term Stewardship at the West Valley Demonstration Project and Western New York Nuclear Service Center (DOE/EIS-0226-S1), hereinafter referred to as the Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) for the West Valley Site.
Nuclear Classification and Declassification
The Department of Energy (DOE) proposes to revise its regulations concerning the requirements for classification and declassification of Restricted Data (RD) and Formerly Restricted Data (FRD). Since 1997, when DOE amended the regulations, changes in legislation and DOE and national policies have rendered portions of the existing regulations outdated. The proposed revisions update the regulations to address these changes. Additional changes made are to clarify requirements, as well as allow agencies more flexibility in implementing RD/FRD programs. This proposed rule is rewritten for clarity and reorganized for ease of use.
