SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On March 13, 2001 (66 FR 14483), the NRC published in the Federal Register a direct final rule amending its regulations in 10 CFR 72 to revising the Holtec International HI-STAR 100 cask system listing within the “List of approved spent fuel storage casks” to include Amendment No. 2 to the Certificate of Compliance (CoC). Amendment No. 2 revises the HI-STAR 100 cask system Appendix B of the Technical Specifications (TS), Item 1.4.6, “Specific Parameters and Analysis for the Storage Pad and Foundation” to simplify the language of this specification. The current 60-g limit for cask drop and tipover events in TS Item 1.4.6 would remain unchanged. This document confirms the effective date. In the direct final rule, NRC stated that if no significant adverse comments were received, the direct final rule would become final on the date noted above. The NRC did not receive any comments that warranted withdrawal of the direct final rule. Therefore, this rule will become effective as scheduled.
