Miscellaneous Corrections

10 CFR Part 2

Correct Reference. In § 2.810(e), this final rule removes the reference “(13 CFR 121.402(b)(2))” and replaces it with the reference “(13 CFR 121.104),” which is more accurate.

Revise a Typographical Error. In the first sentence of § 2.1023(a), this final rule removes the word “and” and replaces it with the word “an.”

Correct Number. In the second sentence of the introductory paragraph of § 2.1210(a), this final rule removes the words “forty (40) days” and replaces them with the words “one-hundred and twenty (120) days.” With this change, § 2.1210(a) conforms to § 2.341.

Correct Number. In the first sentence of § 2.1406(c), this final rule removes the words “twenty (20) days” and replaces them with the words “twenty-five (25) days.” With this change, § 2.1406(c) conforms to § 2.1407(a)(1).
10 CFR Part 15

Change Time Period for Referral of Debt for Collection through Offset. The Digital Accountability and Transparency Act of 2014 (Pub. Law 113-101) (DATA Act) amended 31 U.S.C. 3716(c)(6), “Administrative Offset,” effective May 19, 2014. This minor provision changed the time period by which a Federal agency must refer to the Secretary of the Treasury a debt owed to the U.S. Government, for collection of the debt through offset, from 180 days to 120 days. This final rule changes the number of days from 180 days to 120 days in § 15.33(b)(1) to comply with the DATA Act. This final rule also changes the number of days from 180 to 120 in the first sentences of § 15.20(d) and the introductory paragraph of § 15.20(e) for consistency.
10 CFR Part 19

Correct Contact Information for Obtaining NRC Form 3. In § 19.11(e)(2), this final rule removes the nrc phone number that has been discontinued because it was subject to frequent change and, therefore, confusing to the public; corrects the email address; and corrects the Web site address.
10 CFR Part 20

Transfer Mississippi to Region IV. In the Staff Requirements Memorandum to SECY-06-0075, dated April 26, 2006 (ADAMS Accession No. ML061160609), the Commission approved the transfer of all interactions with the State of Mississippi from nrc Region II to NRC Region IV. This final rule makes conforming changes to appendix D to 10 CFR part 20 to reflect the transfer.
10 CFR Part 26

Correct Mathematical Error. In the first sentence of § 26.135(c), this final rule removes the words “(−20 °C (−68 °F) or less)” and replaces them with the words “(−20 °C (−4 °F) or less).”

Correct Mathematical Error. In the first sentence of § 26.159(i), this final rule removes the words “−20 °C (−68 °F)” and replaces them with the words “−20 °C (−4 °F).”

Revise a Typographical Error. In the first sentence of § 26.717(g), this final rule removes the word “licensee’s)” and replaces it with the word “licensees.”
10 CFR Part 30

Correct Contact Information for Obtaining NRC Form 3. In § 30.7(e)(3), this final rule removes the NRC phone number that has been discontinued because it was subject to frequent change and, therefore, confusing to the public; corrects the email address; and corrects the Web site address.
10 CFR Part 40

Correct Contact Information for Obtaining NRC Form 3. In § 40.7(e)(3), this final rule removes the NRC phone number that has been discontinued because it was subject to frequent change and, therefore, confusing to the public; corrects the email address; and corrects the Web site address.
10 CFR Part 50

Correct Contact Information for Obtaining NRC Form 3. In § 50.7(e)(2), this final rule removes the NRC phone number that has been discontinued because it was subject to frequent change and, therefore, confusing to the public; corrects the email address; and corrects the Web site address.

Correct Spelling. This final rule makes several spelling corrections by adding hyphens to words appearing in § 50.55a. In § 50.55a(b)(2)(viii)(B), this final rule replaces the word “prestressing” with “pre-stressing” and the word “prestress” with “pre-stress.” In § 50.55a(b)(2)(viii)(C), this final rule replaces the word “retensioning” with “re-tensioning”. In § 50.55a(b)(2)(ix)(J), this final rule replaces the word “leaktight” with the word “leak-tight.”

Revise Language for Consistency. This final rule revises the first sentence of § 50.82(a)(4)(i) to permit licensees to submit the Post-Shutdown Decommissioning Activities Report prior to permanent cessation of operations. This change is necessary for the language in § 50.82(a)(4)(i) to conform to § 50.82(a)(8)(iii), Section 4 of Regulatory Guide 1.184 (October 2013) (ADAMS Accession No. ML13144A840), and Section 21 of the technical basis for the Decommissioning Planning Rule (ADAMS Accession No. ML070590136).
10 CFR Part 51

Revise Reference for Clarity. In the first sentences of §§ 51.34(b) and 51.102(c), this final rule adds the words “subpart G of” in order to restore the original NRC intent that it may issue most materials licenses before the hearing on the license, if any, is completed.

Correct Address and Minor Editorial Changes. In Footnote 1 of Summary Table S-4 in § 51.52, this final rule adds the word “of” to the first sentence, corrects the NRC’s address in the second sentence, and begins the third sentence with the word “The.”

Revise Typographical Errors. In § 51.53(d), this final rule revises the last sentence to correct the quotation marks around the titles of the two reports and add an apostrophe.
10 CFR Part 52

Correct the Definition of “Early Site Permit.” In 2007, a final rule, “Licenses, Certifications, and Approvals for Nuclear Power Plants” (72 FR 49352; August 28, 2007), corrected references in 10 CFR part 52 to reflect that Commission approval for an early site permit refers to a single site. However, the definition for “early site permit” in § 52.1 was inadvertently not corrected at that time, and continued to indicate that it meant Commission approval for “a site or sites.” This final rule corrects the definition in § 52.1(a) to indicate Commission approval for a singular site, and conforms to those changes made in 2007 to §§ 52.12 and 52.15(a), and subpart F of 10 CFR part 52.

Correct Contact Information for Obtaining NRC Form 3. In § 52.5(e)(2), this final rule removes the NRC phone number that has been discontinued because it was subject to frequent change and, therefore, confusing to the public; corrects the email address; and corrects the Web site address.
10 CFR Part 55

More Clearly Indicate Where Submissions Should be Sent. In § 55.5(b)(3), this final rule adds an introductory paragraph to more clearly indicate where test and research reactor or non-reactor facilities should send submissions. This final rule also removes § 55.5(b)(3)(i) and (ii), which become unnecessary once the introductory paragraph is added.

Add Language to Specify Criteria. In § 55.40(d), after the word “shall,” this final rule adds the following words: “use the criteria in NUREG-1478, `Operator Licensing Examiner Standards for Research and Test Reactors,’ for all test and research reactors to.”

Correct Cross Reference. On March 31, 2008, the NRC published the Fitness-for-Duty Programs final rule (73 FR 16965). The final rule removed appendix A to 10 CFR part 26, “Guidelines for Drug and Alcohol Testing Programs,” in its entirety and incorporated the requirements into subparts E, F, and G of 10 CFR part 26. This final rule corrects § 55.53(j) to correctly reference the subparts.

Remove Obsolete Language. In the second sentence of § 55.55(b), this final rule removes the words “or telegram” and the words “or with a telegraph company.”
10 CFR Part 60

Correct Contact Information for Obtaining NRC Form 3. In § 60.9(e)(2), this final rule removes the NRC phone number that has been discontinued because it was subject to frequent change and, therefore, confusing to the public; corrects the email address; and corrects the Web site address.
10 CFR Part 61

Correct Contact Information for Obtaining NRC Form 3. In § 61.9(e)(2), this final rule removes the NRC phone number that has been discontinued because it was subject to frequent change and, therefore, confusing to the public; corrects the email address; and corrects the Web site address.
10 CFR Part 63

Correct Contact Information for Obtaining NRC Form 3. In § 63.9(e)(2), this final rule removes the NRC phone number that has been discontinued because it was subject to frequent change and, therefore, confusing to the public; corrects the email address; and corrects the Web site address.
10 CFR Part 70

Correct Contact Information for Obtaining NRC Form 3. In § 70.7(e)(3), this final rule removes the NRC phone number that has been discontinued because it was subject to frequent change and, therefore, confusing to the public; corrects the email address, and corrects the Web site address.
10 CFR Part 71

Correct Contact Information for Obtaining NRC Form 3. In § 71.9(e)(2), this final rule removes the NRC phone number that has been discontinued because it was subject to frequent change and, therefore, confusing to the public; corrects the email address; and corrects the Web site address.
10 CFR Part 72

Correct Contact Information for Obtaining NRC Form 3. In § 72.10(e)(2), this final rule removes the NRC phone number that has been discontinued because it was subject to frequent change and, therefore, confusing to the public; corrects the email address; and corrects the Web site address.

Remove Expired Certificates. Certificates of Compliance 1000, 1002, 1003, and 1005 have expired and this final rule removes them from § 72.214. The certificate holders have not opted to renew the certificates, and no other applicants have requested renewal. No casks have been loaded under these certificates.
10 CFR Part 73

Correct Reference in Authority Citation. In a final rule published on May 20, 2013 (78 FR 29520), “Physical Protection of Irradiated Reactor Fuel in Transit,” § 73.37 was revised in its entirety. This revision moved the advance notification provisions to governors of affected states for shipments of spent nuclear fuel through their “affected” States from § 73.37(f) to § 73.37(b)(2). This final rule corrects the cross reference in the authority citation for 10 CFR part 73.

Transfer Mississippi to Region IV. In the Staff Requirements Memorandum to SECY-06-0075 (April 26, 2006), the Commission approved the transfer of all interactions with the State of Mississippi from NRC Region II to NRC Region IV. This final rule makes conforming changes to appendix A to 10 CFR part 73 to reflect the transfer.

Correct Title of Appendix. Appendix C to 10 CFR part 73 applies to facilities other than nuclear power plants. Therefore, this final rule corrects the title of appendix C to 10 CFR part 73 by removing the words “Nuclear Power Plant” from the title and replacing them with the word “Licensee.” This change also conforms the title of the appendix to the existing reference in § 73.46(h)(1).
10 CFR Part 76

Correct Contact Information for Obtaining NRC Form 3. In § 76.7(e)(3), this final rule removes the NRC phone number that has been discontinued because it was subject to frequent change and, therefore, confusing to the public; corrects the email address; and corrects the Web site address.
