SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On June 23, 2009 (74 FR 29614), the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) published for public comment a proposed rule that would amend its regulations that govern the export and import of nuclear equipment and material. In addition to updating, clarifying and correcting several provisions, this proposed rule would allow Category 1 and 2 quantities of materials listed in 10 CFR Part 110, Appendix P to be imported under a general license. The proposed rule would also revise the definition of “radioactive waste” and remove the definition of “incidental radioactive material” in 10 CFR part 110. The NRC received a request from a stakeholder to extend the comment period on the information collection aspects of the proposed rule. That request is granted. The comment period for the information collection now closes on September 8, 2009.
