Start Supplemental Information
On June 2, 2020 (85 FR 33527), the NRC published a direct final rule amending its regulations in parts 9 and 35 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations to specify when inclusion of an individual's Social Security account number (SSN) is necessary, include instructions for the partial redaction of SSNs, where feasible, and provide a requirement that SSNs not be visible on the outside of any package sent through the mail.
In the direct final rule, the NRC stated that if no significant adverse comments were received, the direct final rule would become effective on August 17, 2020. The NRC received two comments from the public that supported the proposed changes to the regulations. Because no significant adverse comments were received, the direct final rule will become effective as scheduled.
