I. Introduction

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering the 
issuance of a license amendment to terminate Material License No. 24-
17152-02 issued to Maxim Technologies, Inc. (the licensee). The license 
amendment will approve the licensee's St. Louis, Missouri facility for 
unrestricted use.
    The NRC staff prepared an Environmental Assessment in support of 
this license action in accordance with the requirements of Title 10, 
Code of Federal Regulations Part 51, ``Environmental Protection 
Regulations for Domestic Licensing and Related Regulatory Functions.'' 
Based on the Environmental Assessment, the NRC concluded that a Finding 
of No Significant Impact is appropriate. The amendment will be issued 
following the publication of this Notice.

II. EA Summary

    The purpose of the proposed amendment is to terminate the 
licensee's byproduct material license and release its St. Louis, 
Missouri facility for unrestricted use. On October 14, 1983, the NRC 
authorized the licensee to conduct radiochemical analysis of 
environmental samples at the facility located at 12161 Lackland Road, 
St. Louis, Missouri. On April 17, 1989, the NRC authorized the 
unrestricted release of the 12161 Lackland Road, St. Louis, Missouri 
facility for unrestricted use and approved the licensee's current 
facility located at 1908 Innerbelt Business Center Drive, St. Louis, 
Missouri. On November 17, 2004, Maxim Technologies, Inc. submitted a 
license amendment requesting termination of its license and requesting 
release of its facility for unrestricted use. The licensee conducted 
surveys of the facility and provided information to the NRC to 
demonstrate that the site meets the license termination criteria in 10 
CFR part 20, subpart E, ``Radiological Criteria for License 
Termination,'' for unrestricted release. The NRC staff examined the 
licensee's request and the information provided in support of its 
request, including the surveys performed to demonstrate compliance with 
10 CFR 20.1402, ``Radiological Criteria for Unrestricted Use,'' to 
ensure that the NRC's decision is protective of the public health and 
safety and the environment.

III. Finding of No Significant Impact

    On the basis of the Environmental Assessment, NRC concluded that 
there are no significant environmental impacts from the proposed 
amendment and determined not to prepare an environmental impact
