SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This rule is necessary to correct omissions, typographical errors, and erroneous citations and references that appear in Title 10, Chapter I of the Code of Federal Regulations. This rule also corrects an omission of text in a final rulemaking that was originally published on April 12, 1999 (64 FR 17506)(Radiological Criteria for License Termination of Uranium Recovery Facilities).

Because these amendments involve minor corrections to existing regulations, the NRC has determined that notice and comment under the Administrative Procedure Act 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(A) and (B) is unnecessary and that good cause exists to dispense with such notice and comment. For these reasons, good cause also exists to dispense with the usual 30-day delay in the effective date. Therefore, the amendments are effective upon their publication in the Federal Register.

Environmental Impact: Categorical Exclusion

The NRC has determined that this final rule is the type of action described in categorical exclusion 10 CFR 51.22(c)(2). Therefore, neither an environmental impact statement nor an environmental assessment has been prepared for this final rule.

Paperwork Reduction Act Statement

This final rule contains no information collection requirements and, therefore, is not subject to the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.).

Regulatory Analysis

A regulatory analysis has not been prepared for this final rule because the final rule makes corrections to the regulations.

Backfit Analysis

The NRC has determined that these amendments do not involve any provision which would impose backfits as defined in 10 CFR 50.109(a)(1); therefore, a backfit analysis need not be prepared.
