I. Introduction

    Pursuant to 10 CFR Part 2.106, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory 
Commission (NRC) is providing notice of termination of Source Material 
License No. SUB-986, and authorizing the release of Kerr McGee 
Corporation Technical Center (Licensee) located at 3301 NW 150th 
Street, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, for unrestricted use. The Licensee's 
request for an amendment to authorize decommissioning of its Technical 
Center was previously noticed in the Federal Register on July 12, 2001 
(66 FR 36605) with an opportunity for hearing.
    Kerr McGee Corporation provided a final radiological status survey 
and performed an indoor and outdoor dose analysis to demonstrate the 
site meets the license termination criteria in Subpart E of 10 CFR Part 
20. In addition, NRC staff conducted independent measurements of soils 
and surfaces at the site. The NRC staff has evaluated Kerr McGee 
Corporation's request, reviewed the results of the final radiological 
survey, and determined that the site meets the unrestricted use dose 
criteria in 10 CFR 20.1402. The Commission has concluded that the site 
is suitable for release for unrestricted use and has terminated the 
license for Kerr McGee Corporation Technical Center, Oklahoma City, 
Oklahoma, property. The NRC staff issued a Final Safety Evaluation 
Report (SER) on August 1, 2005, to support the proposed action.
