On November 7, 2014, NWMI filed with the NRC, pursuant to Section 103 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, and part 50 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), a portion of an application for a construction permit for a medical radioisotope production facility in Columbia, Missouri. By letter dated February 5, 2015 (ADAMS Accession No. ML15086A262), NWMI withdrew and resubmitted this portion of their construction permit application (ADAMS Accession No. ML15086A261) to include a discussion of connected actions in their environmental report in response to a letter from the NRC (ADAMS Accession No. ML14349A501).

An exemption from certain requirements of 10 CFR 2.101(a)(5) granted by the Commission on October 7, 2013 (ADAMS Accession No. ML13238A333), in response to a letter from NWMI dated August 9, 2013 (ADAMS Accession No. ML13227A295), allowed for NWMI to submit its construction permit application in two parts. Specifically, the exemption allowed NWMI to submit a portion of its application for a construction permit up to 6 months prior to the remainder of the application regardless of whether or not an environmental impact statement or a supplement to an environmental impact statement is prepared during the review of its application. On February 5, 2015, in accordance with 10 CFR 2.101(a)(5), NWMI submitted the following in part one of the construction permit application:

As stated in NWMI's February 5, 2015, letter, part two of NWMI's application for a construction permit will contain the remainder of the preliminary safety analysis report required by 10 CFR 50.34(a) and will be submitted in accordance with the requirements of 10 CFR 2.101(a)(5).

Subsequent Federal Register notices will address the acceptability of this part of the tendered construction permit application for docketing and provisions for public participation in the construction permit application review process.
