This notice has been issued under the authority of section 131 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (42 U.S.C. 2160). The Department is providing notice of a proposed “subsequent arrangement” under the Agreement for Cooperation Concerning Civil Uses of Atomic Energy between the United States and Canada and the Agreement for Cooperation Between the United States and Japan Concerning Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Energy.
This subsequent arrangement concerns the retransfer of 220,784 kg of U.S.-origin natural uranium hexafluoride, 149,250 kg of which is uranium, from the Cameco Corporation, Ontario, Canada to Japan Nuclear Fuel Limited (JNFL). The material, which is now located at Cameco Corp., Port Hope, Ontario, will be transferred to JNFL for toll enrichment. Upon completion of the enrichment, the material will be used as fuel by the Tokyo Electric Power Company Inc., 1-Chome, Chiyoda-Ku, Tokyo, Japan. The uranium hexafluoride was originally obtained by the Cameco Corp. from Power Resources, Inc. pursuant to export license number XSOU8744.
In accordance with section 131 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, we have determined that this subsequent arrangement is not inimical to the common defense and security.
