On May 28, 2003 (68 FR 31587), the NRC published in the Federal Register a direct final rule amending its regulations in 10 CFR Part 110 to issue a general license for the import of major components of utilization facilities for end-use at NRC-licensed reactors. The amendment facilitates imports of major components of domestic nuclear reactors in furtherance of protection of public health and safety and reduces unnecessary regulatory burdens related to the maintenance of NRC-licensed reactors. 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.Start Signature
