Notification of Impending Waiver Termination

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Notice of impending waiver termination.


SUMMARY: Section 651(e) of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct) 
authorized the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (Commission or NRC) 
to issue a time-limited waiver (70 FR 51581; August 31, 2005) to allow 
continued use and possession of naturally-occurring and accelerator-
produced radioactive materials (NARM) while the Commission developed a 
regulatory framework for regulation of the new byproduct material. The 
Commission has begun terminating the time-limited waiver in phases in 
accordance to the provisions of the ``Plan for the Transition of 
Regulatory Authority Resulting from the Expanded Definition of 
Byproduct Material'' (transition plan) issued by the Commission on 
October 19, 2007 (72 FR 59157). The first phase of waiver terminations 
occurred on November 30, 2007 (72 FR 68043), and the second phase 
occurred on September 30, 2008 (73 FR 14376).
    This document provides advance notification that on August 7, 2009, 
the Commission will terminate the time-limited waivers for all 
remaining non-Agreement States and Canadian licenses that are under NRC 
    Alaska, Connecticut, Hawaii, Michigan, New Jersey, and Virginia.
    As provided in the transition plan, for existing NRC licensees, 
NARM use amendments are required within 6 months from the date of 
waiver termination. For NARM users in non-Agreement States and Canadian 
licensees without a NRC license, the license applications are required 
within 12 months from the date waiver termination.
