Regulatory Changes To Implement the United States/Australian Agreement for Peaceful Nuclear Cooperation; Corrections
Final Rule; Correcting Amendments.
On November 8, 2011, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or the Commission) published in the Federal Register a final rule (76 FR 69120) that amended the NRC's regulations to implement the 2010 “Agreement between the Government of Australia and the Government of the United States of America Concerning Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Energy.” The present NRC action is necessary to relocate a new section added by the final rule, and to make a related conforming change to the final rule.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Back to Top
This action corrects the final rule published on November 8, 2011 (76 FR 69120). Specifically, the new section in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Part 40 is added as § 40.56 rather than § 40.52. This change is necessary because 10 CFR 40.52 through 40.55 were proposed to be added by a previous NRC rulemaking (75 FR 43425; July 26, 2010) that the NRC now intends to publish as a final rule. A conforming change is being made to the revised 10 CFR 40.13(c)(5)(v) provision, so that it will contain the proper cross-reference to § 40.56. These amendments are administrative in that they make no substantive changes to requirements, and the NRC accordingly finds that notice and opportunity for public comment on this corrective action is unnecessary.
For the reasons set out in the preamble and under the authority of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended; the Energy Reorganization Act of 1974, as amended; 5 U.S.C. 552 and 553; and the Energy Policy Act of 2005; Public Law 109-58, 119 Stat. 594 (2005); the NRC is adopting the following amendments to 10 CFR part 40.
