Licensing Support System Advisory Review Panel

AGENCY: U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Notice of renewal of the Charter of the Licensing Support 
Network Advisory Review Panel (LSNARP).


SUMMARY: The Licensing Support System Advisory Review Panel was 
established by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission as a Federal 
Advisory Committee in 1989. Its purpose was to provide advice on the 
fundamental issues of design and development of an electronic 
information management system to be used to store and retrieve 
documents relating to the licensing of a geologic repository for the 
disposal of high-level radioactive waste, and on the operation and 
maintenance of the system. This electronic information management 
system was known as the Licensing Support System (LSS). In November, 
1998 the Commission approved amendments to 10 CFR part 2 that renamed 
the Licensing Support System Advisory Review Panel as the Licensing 
Support Network Advisory Review Panel. The Licensing Support Network 
(LSN) in use since 2004 and now contains over 4 million documents 
associated the proposed high-level waste facility.
    Membership on the Panel will continue to be drawn from those 
interests that will be affected by the use of the LSN, including the 
Department of Energy, the NRC, the State of Nevada, the National 
Congress of American Indians, affected units of local governments in 
Nevada, the Nevada Nuclear Waste Task Force, and a

coalition of nuclear industry groups. Federal agencies with expertise 
and experience in electronic information management systems may also 
participate on the Panel.
    The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has determined that renewal of 
the charter for the LSNARP until December 3, 2012 is in the public 
interest in connection with duties imposed on the Commission by law. 
This action is being taken in accordance with the Federal Advisory 
Committee Act after consultation with the Committee Management 
Secretariat, General Services Administration.
