Notice is hereby given that by petition dated March 4, 2010, Isaac D. Harp (petitioner) has requested that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) take enforcement action against the U.S. Army for the unlicensed possession and use of depleted uranium.
As the basis for this request, the petitioner states that the Army's license, SUB-459, expired on October 31, 1964, and if any depleted uranium was possessed or released to the environment after the expiration date, that was an unlawful act and subject to NRC enforcement policies.
The request is being treated pursuant to 10 CFR 2.206 of the Commission's regulations. The request has been referred to the Director of the Office of Federal and State Materials and Environmental Management Programs (FSME). As provided by Section 2.206, the petitioner met with the FSME petition review board on April 14, 2010, to discuss the petition. The results of that discussion were considered in the board's determination regarding the petitioner's request and in establishing the schedule for the review of the petition.
