I. Introduction

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is hosting a seminar, The Fuel Cycle Information Exchange 2006 (FCIX 2006), on August 30 and 31, 2006, to provide an opportunity for licensees, NRC staff, and other stakeholders to exchange information and discuss Start Printed Page 36139issues of interest pertaining to the regulation of NRC-regulated fuel cycle facilities.

The seminar will be held in Rockville, Maryland, at the Universities of Maryland at the Shady Grove Campus Auditorium and will be open to the public. Fuel Cycle licensees and other interested parties were previously notified of the possibility of this meeting in a letter from Robert Pierson, dated November 28, 2005, (ADAMS accession number ML053220226).
