Title 10 published on 19-May-2018 04:00
The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 10 CFR Part 110 after this date.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is amending its regulations to make miscellaneous corrections. The amendments include correcting references, an address and a misspelling. The amendments will also make references to persons in one part of the NRC's regulations gender neutral. This document is necessary to inform the public of these non-substantive amendments to the NRC's regulations.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is amending its regulations to make miscellaneous corrections. These changes include renaming the Office of Information Services, renaming the Computer Security Office and removing it as a standalone office, capitalizing the words Tribe, Tribes, and Tribal, correcting a Web site address, correcting a misspelling, removing a submission requirement, correcting an email address, correcting a room number, removing a Federal Register notice requirement, and adding missing information collection references. This document is necessary to inform the public of these non-substantive changes to the NRC's regulations.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) published a final rule in the Federal Register on September 9, 2015, that amended its regulations to better adhere to the Office of Federal Register's (OFR) guidance for formatting authority citations. In addition, the final rule corrected typographical errors and made other non-substantive corrections to the NRC's authority citations. The final rule contained incorrect punctuation and spacing, one incorrect reference, and omitted two references. This document makes additional corrections to NRC's authority citations.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is amending its regulations pertaining to the export and import of nuclear materials and equipment. This rulemaking is necessary to conform the export controls of the United States to the international export control guidelines of the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG), of which the United States is a member, and to incorporate by reference the current version of the International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) document, “Nuclear Security Recommendations on Physical Protection of Nuclear Material and Nuclear Facilities (INFCIRC/225/Revision 5), January 2011.” Also, this final rule makes certain editorial revisions, and corrects typographical errors.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is proposing to amend its regulations concerning deliberate misconduct by licensees and other persons otherwise subject to the NRC's jurisdiction (known as the “Deliberate Misconduct Rule”) and its regulations concerning challenges to immediately effective orders issued by the NRC. This proposed rule would incorporate the concept of “deliberate ignorance” as an additional basis on which to take enforcement action against persons who violate any of the NRC's Deliberate Misconduct Rule provisions. The NRC is also proposing to amend its regulations regarding challenges to the immediate effectiveness of NRC enforcement orders to clarify that the NRC staff has the burden of persuasion in showing that adequate evidence supports the grounds for the order and that immediate effectiveness is warranted and to clarify the authority of the NRC's presiding officer to order live testimony in resolving these challenges.
In 2010, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) staff published a final rule amending its regulations concerning export and import of nuclear equipment and material. Among other things, it added the phrase “of U.S. origin” to the first exclusion to the definition of “radioactive waste” to confirm that the return of U.S. origin radioactive sources is not classified as the import of radioactive waste. The NRC staff drafted the Branch Technical Position (BTP) on the Import of Non-U.S. Origin Sources to provide additional guidance on the application of this exclusion in the regulations. In developing this BTP, the NRC staff has engaged with States, Low-Level Waste Compacts, industry, and the public by providing two opportunities for public comment via Federal Register Notice and a public meeting in 2012. The exclusion in 10 CFR part 110 reflects the United States' commitments to the policy of safe storage and disposal of disused sources in the international context, including under the Code of Practice on the International Transboundary Movement of Radioactive Waste (Code of Practice), Joint Convention on the Safety of Spent Fuel Management and the Safety of Radioactive Waste Management (Joint Convention), and the International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) Code of Conduct on the Safety and Security of Radioactive Sources (Code of Conduct—along with the supplementary Guidance on Import and Export). The United States' commitments include not exporting radioactive waste to other countries for disposal and, in light of the United States' strong domestic regulatory program, allowing return of disused sources manufactured or distributed from the United States in order to prevent sources from being orphaned overseas where regulatory programs may not exist or function to an optimal level.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is amending its export and import regulations by adding South Sudan to the list of restricted destinations. This amendment is necessary to conform the NRC's regulations with U.S. Government foreign policy.
In 2010, the NRC published a final rule amending its regulations concerning export and import of nuclear equipment and material. Among other things, it added the phrase “Of U.S. origin” to the first exclusion to the definition of “radioactive waste”. The phrase was added to the final rule in response to a public comment on the proposed rule to clarify the exclusion. Since publication of the final rule, NRC staff has been engaged with industry in response to concerns raised regarding established industry practices and the need for guidance on implementation of the “U.S.-origin” exclusion.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or the Commission) is amending its regulations pertaining to the export and import of nuclear materials and equipment. This rulemaking is necessary to reflect the nuclear non-proliferation policy of the Executive Branch regarding U.S. Government obligations to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Also, this final rule makes certain editorial revisions, and corrects typographical errors.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or the Commission) is amending its export and import regulations by removing Oman from the list of restricted destinations. This amendment is necessary to conform the NRC's regulations with U.S. Government foreign policy.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) plans to conduct a public meeting on January 24, 2012, in Rockville, Maryland, to solicit input on a draft Branch Technical Position (BTP) on the Import of non-U.S. Origin Radioactive Sources. In 2010, the NRC published a final rule amending 10 CFR part 110 (75 FR 44072; July 28, 2010). Among other things, it added the phrase “Of U.S. origin” to the first exclusion to the definition of “radioactive waste” in § 110.2. The phrase was added to the final rule in response to a public comment on the proposed rule to clarify the exclusion. Since publication of the final rule, industry has raised concerns with NRC staff regarding established industry practices and the need for guidance on implementation of the “U.S. origin” exclusion. The staff is holding a public meeting to obtain comments from stakeholders on the draft BTP and to discuss implementation issues associated with the “U.S. origin” exclusion.
