    Procedures for the conduct of and participation in ACRS meetings 
were published in the Federal Register on October 6, 2008 (73 FR 58268-
58269). In accordance with those procedures, oral or written views may 
be presented by members of the public, including representatives of the 
nuclear industry. Electronic recordings will be permitted only during 
the open portions of the meeting. Persons desiring to make oral 
statements should notify the Cognizant ACRS staff named below five days 
before the meeting, if possible, so that appropriate arrangements can 
be made to allow necessary time during the meeting for such statements. 
Use of still, motion picture, and television cameras during the meeting 
may be limited to selected portions of the meeting as determined by the 
Chairman. Information regarding the time to be set aside for this 
purpose may be obtained by contacting the Cognizant ACRS staff prior to 
the meeting. In view of the possibility that the schedule for ACRS 
meetings may be adjusted by the Chairman as necessary to facilitate the 
conduct of the meeting, persons planning to attend should check with 
the Cognizant ACRS staff if such rescheduling would result in major 
inconvenience.
    In accordance with Subsection 10(d) Public Law 92-463, I have 
determined that it may be necessary to close a portion of this meeting 
noted above to discuss and protect information classified as National 
Security Information as well as Safeguards Information pursuant to 5 
U.S.C. 552b(c)(1) and (3). In addition, it may be necessary to close a 
portion of the meeting to discuss organizational and personnel matters 
that relate solely to the internal personnel rules and practices of the 
ACRS, and information the release of which would constitute a clearly 
unwarranted invasion of personal privacy pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 
552b(c)(2) and (6).

meeting has been canceled or rescheduled, as well as the Chairman's
