Notice of a Public Meeting Regarding Pa'ina Hawaii, LLC, License 
Application Request for the Operation of an Irradiator In Honolulu, HI

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Notice of meeting.


SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) received on June 
27, 2005, from Pa'ina Hawaii, LLC, a Hawaiian owned company, an 
application to build and operate a commercial pool type industrial 
irradiator in Honolulu, Hawaii, near the Honolulu International 
Airport. This commercial irradiator will irradiate fresh fruit and 
vegetables bound for the mainland from the Hawaiian Islands, cosmetics, 
and pharmaceutical products. The irradiator will also be used by the 
applicant to conduct research and development projects, and irradiate a 
wide range of other materials as specifically approved by the NRC on a 
case-by-case basis.
    The NRC plans to hold a public meeting to solicit comments from 
members of the public on the proposed license application. The meeting 
is open to the public and all interested parties may attend. This 
meeting is the first of several public meetings that the NRC will hold 
in Hawaii to enhance public awareness of the NRC's independent 
regulatory role in protecting public health and safety and the 
environment, to allow public involvement in NRC decision-making matters 
associated with this license application, and to promote two-way 
communication on matters related to the NRC's licensing and inspection 
processes. The public is invited to participate in this meeting by 
providing comments and asking questions throughout the meeting.
