Withdrawal of Direct Final Rule

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Direct final rule; withdrawal.


SUMMARY: The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is withdrawing a 
direct final rule that would have revised the NUHOMS[supreg]-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 the 
Certificate of Compliance (CoC). 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 
companion proposed rule is published in the proposed rule section of 
this Federal Register.
