I. Introduction

By letter dated March 28, 2002 (ADAMS ML020940468), Framatome Advanced Nuclear Power (FANP) requested the renewal of license SNM-1168. A Federal Register Notice was published on August 9, 2002, notifying the public that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) or the Commission was reviewing the renewal application for SNM-1168 and offering a 30-day notice of opportunity to request a hearing, in accordance with 10 CFR part 2. No requests for a hearing were received.

The environmental impacts of continued operation were reported in the Environmental Assessment (EA) for Renewal of License SNM-1168 (ADAMS ML030940720). On the basis of the assessment, a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) was published in the Federal Register on May 7, 2003, (68 FR 24521).

Therefore, the Commission has renewed, for a period of ten years, Special Nuclear Material License SNM-1168 (ADAMS ML033490064), held by FANP to authorize: (1) Fabrication of fuel assemblies for commercial nuclear reactors, (2) support activities for nuclear reactor field service operations, and (3) general manufacturing at the Lynchburg, Virginia facility. This renewal was issued on December 12, 2003, and is effective immediately.
