This proposed subsequent arrangement concerns the retransfer of 18,742 grams uranium, 129 grams U-235, and 230 grams plutonium of United States origin contained in irradiated fuel rods, from KEPCO Nuclear Fuel Co., Ltd. in Daejon, Republic of Korea, to Studsvik Nuclear AB, in Nykoping, Sweden. The irradiated fuel rods, which are currently located at KEPCO Nuclear Fuel Co. in Daejon, Republic of Korea, will be used for testing the fuel cladding, guide tubes, and spacer grids by Studsvik Nuclear AB, in Nykoping, Sweden. After testing, the irradiated fuel rods will be stored at Studsvik Nuclear AB, in Nykoping, Sweden for a period of five years, after which the fuel rods will be moved to permanent disposal. Upon transfer to Sweden, the irradiated fuel rods will be subject to the Agreement for Cooperation in the Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Energy between the United States of America and the European Atomic Energy Community.
Pursuant to the authority in section 131 a. of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as delegated, I have determined that this proposed subsequent arrangement concerning the retransfer of irradiated nuclear material of United States origin will not be inimical to the common defense and security of the United States of America.
