SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Introduction

The NRC is amending its regulations at Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) parts 1, 9, 19, 20, 26, 30, 35, 40, 52, 55, 60, 61, 70, 73, 110, 170, and 171 to make miscellaneous administrative changes. These changes include correcting the authority citation for 10 CFR part 61, updating the street address for its Region IV office, correcting typographical and spelling errors, and making other edits and conforming changes.

Summary of Changes

Replace “NRC's Electronic Reading Room” With “NRC Library”

The name of the NRC's online repository, formerly called “NRC's Electronic Reading Room” and “Electronic Reading Room,” has been changed to “NRC Library.” Only the name has changed; the Web site address remains the same. The new name is incorporated into § 9.27(a) of the NRC's regulations. In addition, the new name is incorporated in the definition of “NRC Public Document Room” by replacing the term “Electronic Reading Room” with “NRC Library” in § 60.2 of the NRC's regulations.

Correct Spelling Errors

In § 19.14(b), an “r” was inadvertently included in the word “phases” resulting in a different word, “phrases.” In § 19.14(b), the word “phrases” is replaced with the word “phases.”

In § 60.75(c)(2), an “m” was inadvertently omitted from the word “accomodate.” In § 60.75(c)(2), the word “accomodate” is replaced with the word “accommodate.”Start Printed Page 72083

Add Missing Conjunction

In § 35.50, the word “and” is missing between § 35.50(a)(2)(ii)(B) and 35.50(a)(2)(iii), due to a clerical error resulting from an administrative change in January 2007 (71 FR 15008). The word “and” is added at the end of § 35.50(a)(2)(ii)(B) after the semicolon.

Remove Misprinted Reference

In § 35.50(b)(1)(i), the reference, “(ii)”, incorrectly appears after the word “areas” and a dash. The reference is removed from the end of 10 CFR 35.50(b)(1)(i).

Update the Commercial Telephone Number of the NRC Operations Center

The commercial telephone number for the NRC Operations Center has been changed. The new number, (301) 816-5100, is listed in footnote 3 to § 35.3045(c).

Correct Zip Code

The zip code, “20582,” that is listed in Appendices A, B, and C to 10 CFR part 52 is incorrect. The correct zip code, “20852,” is incorporated into paragraphs III.A of Appendices A, B, and C.

Correct the Authority Citation for 10 CFR Part 61

The authority citation for 10 CFR part 61 was revised by the final rule, “Clarification of NRC Civil Penalty Authority Over Contractors and Subcontractors Who Discriminate Against Employees for Engaging in Protected Activities,” on November 14, 2007 (72 FR 63939). The authority citation was further revised by the administrative rule, “Administrative Changes” on July 23, 2008 (73 FR 42671); however, a subsequent final rule, “Regulatory Changes to Implement the Additional Protocol to the US/IAEA Safeguards Agreement,” (73 FR 78599; December 23, 2008) inadvertently included the authority citation from the 2007 final rule. The authority citation is revised to correctly reflect that of the 2008 administrative rule.

Revise Table Formatting Error in 10 CFR Part 171

The table in paragraph (c) of § 171.16 is missing a colon and a hard return that would separate the heading, “Educational Institutions that are not State or Publicly Supported, and have 500 Employees or Fewer,” from the subsequent list item, “35 to 500 employees.” The formatting errors are corrected, adding a colon after the word “Fewer” and separating the list heading from the subsequent list item.

Update Location of Information Collections Citation in 10 CFR Part 110

In a final rule (75 FR 44072; July 28, 2010), the information collections were moved from §§ 110.23 and 110.26 to § 110.54. Section 110.7 is updated to reflect this reorganization of provisions.

Delete Footnote in 10 CFR Part 170

A final rule (76 FR 36786; June 22, 2011) eliminated footnote 5 in 10 CFR 170.31 and renumbered footnote 6 to footnote 5. Subsections 15.M through 15.Q were removed and reserved. The rule language inadvertently added a new footnote 6 next to the “Reserved” subsections 15.M through 15.Q that said “There are no existing NRC licenses in the fee category.” In § 170.31, the new footnote 6 and corresponding references in 15.M through 15.Q are removed.

Change in Street Address for Region IV

The street address of the NRC Region IV office has been changed. The new address is incorporated into the following sections of the NRC's regulations: Sec. 1.5(b)(4), Appendix D to 10 CFR part 20, Sec. 30.6(b)(2)(iv), Sec. 40.5(b)(2)(iv), Sec. 55.5(b)(2)(iv), Sec. 70.5(b)(2)(iv), and Appendix A to 10 CFR part 73.

Rulemaking Procedure

Because these amendments constitute minor administrative corrections to the regulations, the Commission finds that the notice and comment provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act are unnecessary and is exercising its authority under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B) to publish these amendments as a final rule. The amendments are effective December 22, 2011. These amendments do not require action by any person or entity regulated by the NRC. Also, the final rule does not change the substantive responsibilities of any person or entity regulated by the NRC.

Environmental Impact: Categorical Exclusion

The NRC has determined that this final rule is the type of action described in categorical exclusion 10 CFR 51.22(c)(2), which excludes from a major action rules which are corrective or of a minor or nonpolicy nature and do not substantially modify existing regulations. Therefore, neither an environmental impact statement nor an environmental assessment has been prepared for this rule.

Paperwork Reduction Act Statement

This final rule does not contain information collection requirements and, therefore, is not subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.).

Public Protection Notification

The NRC may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a request for information or an information collection requirement unless the requesting document displays a currently valid Office of Management and Budget control number.

Backfit Analysis

The NRC has determined that the backfit rule does not apply to this final rule; therefore, a backfit analysis is not required for this final rule because these amendments are administrative in nature and do not involve any provisions that would impose backfits as defined in 10 CFR chapter I, or would be inconsistent with the issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52.

Congressional Review Act (CRA)

Under the CRA of 1996, the NRC has determined that this action is not a major rule and has verified this determination with the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs of the Office of Management and Budget.
