This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

On January 16, 2004 (69 FR 2497), the NRC published a direct final rule amending its regulations in 10 CFR part 72 to revise the NAC International, Inc., NAC-UMS cask system listing within the “List of Approved Spent Fuel Storage Casks” to include Amendment No. 3 to Certificate of Compliance Number 1015. This amendment adds an alternate poison material, revises fuel assembly dimensions, revises thermal analyses, increases Boiling Water Reactor fuel assembly weight, and incorporates Interim Staff Guidance-11 revision provisions. The amendment also reorganizes Section 6.5 of the Safety Evaluation Report, revises Technical Specification A.5.5, and requests several editorial and administrative changes. In the direct final rule, NRC stated that if no significant adverse comments were received, the direct final rule would become final on March 31, 2004. 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
