SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On April 18, 2006 (71 FR 19806), the NRC published a direct final rule amending its regulations in 10 CFR Part 72 to revise the FuelSolutionsTM cask system listing within the “List of Approved Spent Fuel Storage Casks” to include Start Printed Page 35148Amendment No. 4 to CoC No. 1026. This amendment revises the Technical Specifications related to periodic monitoring during storage operations to permit longer surveillance intervals for casks with heat loads lower than the design basis heat load and to permit visual inspection of the cask vent screens or measurement of the cask liner temperature. In the direct final rule, NRC stated that if no significant adverse comments were received, the direct final rule would become final on July 3, 2006. The NRC did not receive any comments that warranted withdrawal of the direct final rule. Therefore, this rule will become effective as scheduled.
