Licenses, Certifications, and Approvals for Material Licensees; 
Reopening of Comment Period

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Proposed rule; reopening of comment period.


SUMMARY: The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is reopening the 
public comment period for the proposed rule that was published on July 
27, 2010 (75 FR 43865). The proposed rule would amend the regulations 
by revising the provisions applicable to the licensing and approval 
processes for byproduct, source and special nuclear material licenses, 
and irradiators to clarify the definitions of ``construction'' and 
``commencement of construction''. The comment period for this proposed 
rule, which closed on September 27, 2010, is reopened and will remain 
open until November 29, 2010.

DATES: The comment period has been reopened and now closes on November 
29, 2010. Comments received after this date will be considered if it is 
practical to do so, but the NRC is able to assure consideration only 
for comments received on or before this date.

Submitting Comments and Accessing Information

    Comments submitted in writing or in electronic form will be posted 
on the NRC Web site and on the Federal rulemaking Web site http://www.regulations.gov. Because your comments will not be edited to remove 
any identifying or contact information, the NRC cautions you against 
including any information in your submission that you do not want to be 
publicly disclosed. The NRC requests that any party soliciting or 
aggregating comments received from other persons for submission to the 
NRC inform those persons that the NRC will not edit their comments to 
remove any identifying or contact information, and therefore, they 
should not include any information in their comments that they do not 
want publicly disclosed.

Extension Request

    On September 15, 2010, and September 21, 2010, the Nuclear Energy 
Institute and the National Mining Association, respectively, requested 
extension of the public comment period until November 29, 2010. In 
their requests, the stakeholders indicated that given a shorter than 
normal comment period, the magnitude of the potential impact of the 
proposed amendment on a variety of licensees and applicants, and the 
need for stakeholders to carefully review the proposed amendment in 
order to provide constructive comments, an extension was necessary. No 
objections to the requested extension have been received.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 24th day of September 2010.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Annette L. Vietti-Cook,
Secretary of the Commission.
