Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION:

Standard Review Plan.

SUMMARY:

The NRC is seeking public comment on draft NUREG-1574, Revision 2, entitled “Standard Review Plan on Transfer and Amendment of Antitrust License Conditions and Antitrust Enforcement.” This standard review plan (SRP) documents procedures and guidance to be used by the staff to analyze license transfer applications and license amendment applications involving existing antitrust license conditions, to report to the Attorney General information indicating that a licensee's use of atomic energy appears to have violated the antitrust laws, and to take appropriate enforcement action for a licensee's violation of its antitrust license conditions. Because the SRP describes internal agency procedures and is based on existing Commission guidance in this area, the SRP is being published for interim use. However, the Commission is inviting public comment on the SRP and is interested in possible improvements to it. Public comments will be considered in evaluating the NRC review process in this area.

DATES:

The public is invited to submit comments on the SRP by July 9, 2007. Comments received after this date will be considered if it is practical to do so, but assurance of consideration cannot be given except as to comments received on or before this date. On the basis of the submitted comments, the Commission will determine whether to modify the SRP before issuing it in final form.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The draft NUREG-1574, Revision 2, entitled “Standard Review Plan on Transfer and Amendment of Antitrust License Conditions and Antitrust Enforcement” [ML070160586] reflects the Energy Policy Act of 2005's removal of the NRC's antitrust review responsibilities for applications for licenses under sections 103 and 104 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended. The SRP provides guidance on the appropriate disposition of antitrust license conditions during license transfers and for the review of applications to amend antitrust license conditions outside of license transfers. The SRP also provides guidance regarding the NRC's responsibility to refer certain antitrust matters to the Attorney General, and regarding the NRC's enforcement of antitrust license conditions. The SRP supersedes NUREG-1574, Standard Review Plan on Antitrust Reviews, published December 1997, in its entirety.
