I. Introduction

    Pursuant to Section 2.106 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal 
Regulations (10 CFR), the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or 
the Commission) is providing notice of the issuance of License Renewal 
to Material License No. SNM-124, to Nuclear Fuel Services, Inc. (the 
licensee), which authorizes the licensee to continue fabricating 
reactor fuel for commercial and government customers at the licensee's 
facility in Erwin, Tennessee. The licensee's request for renewal of its 
license was previously noticed in the Federal Register on October 6, 
2009 (74 FR 51323), with a notice of an opportunity to request a 
hearing. No hearing requests were received. In accordance with 10 CFR 
Part 51, an environmental assessment of this action was completed and a 
finding of no significant impact was published in the Federal Register 
on October 26, 2011 (76 FR 66334).
    This license renewal complies with the standards and requirements 
of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, and the NRC's rules and 
regulations as set forth in 10 CFR Chapter 1. Accordingly, this license 
renewal was issued on August 2, 2012, and is effective immediately.
