With respect to the application for combined licenses filed by DEF, the NRC finds that the applicable standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, (AEA) and the Commission's regulations have been met. The NRC finds that any required notifications to other agencies or bodies have been duly made and that there is reasonable assurance that the facilities will be constructed and will operate in conformity with the license, the provisions of the AEA, and the Commission's regulations. Furthermore, the NRC finds that the licensees are technically and financially qualified to engage in the activities authorized, and that issuance of the licenses will not be inimical to the common defense and security or to the health and safety of the public.
