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, 2.105, 2.300, 2.309, 2.313, 2.318, and 2.321, notice is hereby given that an Atomic Safety and Licensing Board (Board) is being established to preside over the following proceeding:
GE-Hitachi Global Laser Enrichment LLC (GLE Commercial Facility)
This Board is being established pursuant to a Notice of Hearing and Commission Order regarding the application of GE-Hitachi Global Laser Enrichment LLC for a license to possess and use source, byproduct, and special nuclear material and to enrich natural uranium to a maximum of 8 percent U-235 by a laser-based enrichment process at a proposed plant to be known as GLE Commercial Facility that would be located in New Hanover County, North Carolina. See 75 FR 1819 (Jan. 13, 2010). No request for hearing or petition to intervention has been received in response to the notice in the Federal Register. Because GE-Hitachi is seeking authorization to construct a uranium enrichment facility, a mandatory hearing is required.

Jackson, Atomic Safety and Licensing Board Panel, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555-0001; Michael O.
