Guidance for Implementation of Changes, Tests, and Experiments
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing Revision 2 to Regulatory Guide (RG) 1.187. This RG provides licensees with a method that the NRC considers acceptable for use in complying with the Commission's regulations on the process by which licensees, under certain conditions, may make changes to their facilities and procedures as described in the final safety analysis report (FSAR) (as updated) (also referred to as the updated final safety analysis report (UFSAR)), and conduct tests or experiments not described in the FSAR (as updated), without obtaining a license amendment pursuant to NRC requirements. This RG is effective immediately with a 30-day post- promulgation comment period.
Passport Systems, Inc.; North Billerica, MA
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is providing public notice of the termination of Special Nuclear Materials (SNM) License No. SNM-2016. The NRC has terminated the license held by Passport Systems, Inc. (Passport), to possess and use SNM for developing new technologies to detect special nuclear materials in cargo containers for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Domestic Nuclear Detection Office. The license was terminated at Passport's request since it no longer needed the sources for development of their cargo inspection system.
Applications and Amendments to Facility Operating Licenses and Combined Licenses Involving Proposed No Significant Hazards Considerations and Containing Sensitive Unclassified Non-Safeguards Information and Order Imposing Procedures for Access to Sensitive Unclassified Non-Safeguards Information
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) received and is considering approval of one amendment request. The amendment request is for Salem Nuclear Generating Station, Unit Nos. 1 and 2. For the amendment request, the NRC proposes to determine that it involves no significant hazards consideration. Because the amendment request contains sensitive unclassified non-safeguards information (SUNSI), an order imposes procedures to obtain access to SUNSI for contention preparation.
