Non-Power Production or Utilization Facility License RenewalProposed Rule2017-0616203/30/2017NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSIONNuclear Regulatory CommissionThe U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is proposing to amend its regulations that govern the license renewal process for non- power reactors, testing facilities, and other production or utilization facilities, licensed under the … The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is proposing to amend its regulations that govern the license renewal process for non- power reactors, testing facilities, and other production or utilization facilities, licensed under the authority of Section 103, Section 104a, or Section 104c of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (AEA), that are not nuclear power reactors. In this proposed rule, the NRC collectively refers to these facilities as non-power production or utilization facilities (NPUFs). The NRC is proposing to: Eliminate license terms for licenses issued under the authority of Sections 104a or 104c of the AEA, other than for testing facilities; define the license renewal process for licenses issued to testing facilities or under the authority of Section 103 of the AEA; require all NPUF licensees to submit final safety analysis report (FSAR) updates to the NRC every 5 years; and provide an accident dose criterion of 1 rem (0.01 Sievert (Sv)) total effective dose equivalent (TEDE) for NPUFs other than testing facilities. The proposed rule also includes other changes, as described in Section III, ``Discussion,'' of this document. The NRC is issuing concurrently draft Regulatory Guide (DG-2006), ``Preparation of Updated Final Safety Analysis Reports for Non-power Production or Utilization Facilities,'' for review and comment. The NRC anticipates the proposed rule and associated draft implementing guidance would result in reduced burden on both licensees and the NRC, and would create a more responsive and efficient regulatory framework that will continue to protect public health and safety, promote the common defense and security, and protect the environment. During the public comment period, the NRC plans to hold a public meeting to promote a full understanding of the proposed rule and facilitate the public's ability to submit comments on the proposed rule.non-power-production-or-utilization-facility-license-renewalFR-Doc-2017-06162
