AGENCY:

Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION:

Direct final rule; withdrawal.

SUMMARY:

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is withdrawing a direct final rule that would have revised the NUHOMS®-24P, -52B, -61BT, -32PT, -24PHB, and -24PTH cask system listing within the list of approved spent fuel storage casks to include Amendment No. 8 to the Certificate of Compliance (CoC). The NRC is taking this action because the NRC staff has become aware of changes in the Technical Specifications (TS) associated with this CoC. A notice withdrawing the companion proposed rule is published in the proposed rule section of this Federal Register.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On May 25, 2005 (70 FR 29931), the NRC published in the Federal Register a direct final rule amending its regulations in 10 CFR 72.214 to revise the Standardized NUHOMS® System listing within the “List of Approved Spent Fuel Storage Casks” to include Amendment No. 8 to the CoC. Amendment No. 8 modifies the present cask system by adding a new spent fuel storage and transfer system, designated the NUHOMS®-24PTH System. The direct final rule was to become effective on August 8, 2005. The NRC also concurrently published a companion proposed rule on May 25, 2005 (70 FR 30015).

The NRC has become aware of changes in the TS associated with this CoC; therefore, the NRC is withdrawing the direct final rule. The NRC will publish a direct final rule, and its Start Printed Page 40880companion proposed rule, after the needed revisions to the TS are made.
