On August 10, 2007, (72 FR 44951), the NRC published a direct final rule amending its regulations in 10 CFR parts 2 and 171 to revise the size standards it uses to qualify an NRC licensee as a small entity under the Regulatory Flexibility Act. This amendment increases the receipts-based small business size standard from $5 million to $6.5 million. In the direct final rule, NRC stated that if no significant adverse comments were received, the direct final rule would become final on October 24, 2007. The NRC did not receive any comments that warranted withdrawal of the direct final rule. Therefore, this rule will become effective as scheduled.
