I. Introduction

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or the Commission) has 
issued Amendment 6 to Materials License SNM-2505 held by Calvert Cliffs 
Nuclear Power Plant, Inc. (CCNPP) for the receipt, possession, 
transfer, and storage of spent fuel at the Calvert Cliffs Independent 
Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI), located in Calvert County, 
Maryland. The amendment is effective as of the date of issuance.

II. Background

    By application dated December 12, 2003, as supplemented on May 12, 
2004, and June 7, 2005, CCNPP requested to amend its ISFSI license to 
add the NUHOMS-32P as an optional design to the existing NUHOMS-24P 
design for dry storage of spent fuel. The NUHOMS-32P design stores 
eight more spent fuel assemblies than the NUHOMS-24P design.

III. Finding

    This amendment complies with the standards and requirements of the 
Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the Commission's 
rules and regulations. The Commission has made appropriate findings as 
required by the Act and the Commission's rules and regulations in 10 
CFR Chapter I, which are set forth in the license amendment.
    In accordance with 10 CFR 72.46(b)(2), a determination has been 
made that the amendment does not present a genuine issue as to whether 
public health and safety will be significantly affected. Therefore, the 
publication of a notice of proposed action and an opportunity for 
hearing or a notice of hearing is not warranted. Notice is hereby given 
of the right of interested persons to request a hearing on whether the 
action should be rescinded or modified.
    Also in connection with this action, the Commission prepared an 
Environmental Assessment (EA) and Finding of No Significant Impact 
(FONSI). The EA and FONSI were published in the Federal Register on May 
24, 2005 (70 FR 29784).
