Notice of process change; issuance.


The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing a notice regarding a process change. The NRC is migrating to a ListServ, to distribute emails with links to publicly-available documents related to the Waste Incidental to Reprocessing (WIR) Program. The current method of using email lists will be discontinued. If a member of the public does not currently receive such NRC emails and they would like to receive those NRC emails in the future, then they need to voluntarily sign-up for the WIR ListServ via a link to the NRC Public Web site. The instructions for signing up for the WIR ListServ are provided in this Federal Register notice.
