10 CFR Part 72

RIN 3150-AH72

List of Approved Spent Fuel Storage Casks: Standardized 
NUHOMS[reg] -24P, -52B, -61BT, -32PT, -24PHB, and -24PTH Revision; 
Withdrawal of Proposed Rule

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Proposed rule; withdrawal.


SUMMARY: The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is withdrawing a 
proposed rule to revise the NUHOMS[reg] -24P, -52B, -61BT, -32PT, -
24PHB, and -24PTH cask system listing within the list of approved spent 
fuel storage casks to include Amendment No. 8 to Certificate of 
Compliance (CoC) Number 1004. The NRC is taking this action because the 
NRC staff has become aware of changes in the Technical Specifications 
(TS) associated with this CoC. A notice withdrawing the direct final 
rule is published in the final rule section of this Federal Register.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jayne M. McCausland, Office of Nuclear 
Material Safety and Safeguards, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, 
Washington, DC 20555, telephone (301) 415-6219 (e-mail: [email protected]).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On May 25, 2005 (70 FR 30015), the NRC 
published in the Federal Register a proposed rule amending its 
regulations in 10 CFR 72.214 to revise the Standardized NUHOM[reg] 
System listing within the ``List of Approved Spent Fuel Storage Casks'' 
to include Amendment No. 8 to the CoC. Amendment No. 8 modifies the 
present cask system by adding a new spent fuel storage and transfer 
system, designated the NUHOMS[reg] -24PTH System. The NRC also 
concurrently published a direct final rule on May 25, 2005 (70 FR 
29931) that would have become effective on August 8, 2005.
    The NRC has become aware of changes in the TS associated with this 
CoC; therefore, the NRC is withdrawing the proposed rule. The NRC will 
publish a direct final rule, and its companion proposed rule, after the 
needed revisions to the TS are made.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 6th day of July, 2005.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Martin J. Virgilio,
Acting Executive Director for Operations.
