This amendment revises Technical Specifications 1.2.1 and 1.2.14 to add the Framatome-ANP, Version 9x9-2 fuel assemblies as approved contents for storage in the NUHOMS-61BT dry shielded canister. In the direct final rule, NRC stated that if no significant adverse comments were received, the direct final rule would become final on April 17, 2007.
