On August 13, 2004 (69 FR 50053), the NRC published a direct final rule amending its regulations in 10 CFR part 72 to revise the NAC-MPC cask system listing within the “List of Approved Spent Fuel Storage Casks” to include Amendment No. 4 to CoC No. 1025. This amendment increases vacuum drying time limits, deletes canister removal from concrete cask requirements, revises surface contamination removal time limits, and revises allowable contents fuel assembly limits. In the direct final rule, NRC stated that if no significant adverse comments were received, the direct final rule would become final on October 27, 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
