The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or the Commission) has issued Amendment 9 to Materials License No. SNM-2504 held by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for the receipt, possession, storage, and transfer of spent fuel at the Fort St. Vrain (FSV) independent spent fuel storage installation (ISFSI), located in Weld County, Colorado. The amendment is effective as of the date of issuance.
By application dated August 30, 2000, as supplemented May 11 and 24, 2001, DOE requested an amendment to its ISFSI license to include a Safeguards Information Protection Plan per 10 CFR 73.21(h), to be added as an Appendix to the existing Physical Protection Plan.
This amendment complies with the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the Commission's rules and regulations. The Commission has made appropriate findings as required by the Act and the Commission's rules and regulations in 10 CFR Chapter I, which are set forth in the license amendment.
In accordance with 10 CFR 72.46(b)(2), a determination has been made that the amendment does not present a genuine issue as to whether public health and safety will be significantly affected. Therefore, the publication of a notice of proposed action and an opportunity for hearing or a notice of hearing is not warranted. Notice is hereby given of the right of interested persons to request a hearing on whether the action should be rescinded or modified.
The Commission has determined that, pursuant to 10 CFR 51.22(c)(12), an environmental assessment need not be prepared in connection with issuance of the amendment.
