Pursuant to delegation by the Commission dated December 29, 1972, published in the Federal Register, 37 FR 28,710 (1972), and the Commission's regulations, see 10 CFR 2.104, 2.300, 2.303, 2.309, 2.311, 2.318, and 2.321, notice is hereby given that an Atomic Safety and Licensing Board is being established to preside over the following proceeding:

Nuclear Fuel Services, Inc., Special Nuclear Materials Facility (Confirmatory Order)

This Board is being established in response to requests for hearing that were filed pursuant to a Notice of Publication of Confirmatory Order and Opportunity for Hearing (72 Fed. Reg. 41,528 (July 30, 2007)), regarding a Confirmatory Order issued to Nuclear Fuel Services, Inc. (“NFS”) on February 21, 2007 that became immediately effective on the date of issuance. This proceeding arose from inspections and investigations at NSF by the NRC Staff that identified apparent violations for which escalated enforcement action was considered.

Hearing requests have been submitted by: (1) Ken Silver, (2) R. Feher, (3) Linda Cataldo Modica on behalf of the Sierra Club, (4) Wanda Sue Kelley, (5) Barbara A. O'Neal, and (6) A. Christine Tipton.
