I. Introduction

Pursuant to 10 CFR Part 2.106, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is providing notice of termination of Source Material License No. SUB-986, and authorizing the release of Kerr McGee Corporation Technical Center (Licensee) located at 3301 NW 150th Street, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, for unrestricted use. The Licensee's request for an amendment to authorize decommissioning of its Technical Center was previously noticed in the Federal Register on July 12, 2001 (66 FR 36605) with an opportunity for hearing.

Kerr McGee Corporation provided a final radiological status survey and performed an indoor and outdoor dose analysis to demonstrate the site meets the license termination criteria in Subpart E of 10 CFR Part 20. In addition, NRC staff conducted independent measurements of soils and surfaces at the site. The NRC staff has evaluated Kerr McGee Corporation's request, reviewed the results of the final radiological survey, and determined that the site meets the unrestricted use dose criteria in 10 CFR 20.1402. The Commission has concluded that the site is suitable for release for unrestricted use and has terminated the license for Kerr McGee Corporation Technical Center, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, property. The NRC staff issued a Final Safety Evaluation Report (SER) on August 1, 2005, to support the proposed action.
