SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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.
