I. Introduction

    Under section 2.106 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations 
(10 CFR), the NRC is providing notice of the issuance of combined 
license numbers NPF-99 and NPF-100 to the licensee, and under Sec.  
50.102(c), the NRC is providing notice of the ROD. With respect to the 
application for combined licenses filed by DEF, the NRC finds that the 
applicable standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, 
as amended, (AEA) and the Commission's regulations have been met. The 
NRC finds that any required notifications to other agencies or bodies 
have been duly made and that there is reasonable assurance that the 
facilities will be constructed and will operate in conformity with the 
license, the provisions of the AEA, and the Commission's regulations. 
Furthermore, the NRC finds that the licensees are technically and 
financially qualified to engage in the activities authorized, and that 
issuance of the licenses will not be inimical to the common defense and 
security or to the health and safety of the public. Finally, the NRC 
finds that the findings required by subpart A of 10 CFR part 51 have 
been made.
    Accordingly, the combined licenses were issued on October 26, 2016, 
and became effective immediately.

II. Further Information

    The NRC has prepared a Final Safety Evaluation Report (FSER) and 
Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) that document the 
information reviewed and the NRC's conclusion. The Commission has also 
issued its Memorandum and Order documenting its final decision on the 
uncontested hearing held on July 28, 2016, which serves as the ROD in 
this proceeding. The NRC also prepared a document summarizing the ROD 
to accompany its actions on the combined license application; this 
Summary ROD incorporates by reference materials contained in the FEIS. 
The FSER, FEIS, Summary ROD, and accompanying documentation included in 
the combined license package, as well as the Commission's hearing 
decision and ROD, are available online in the ADAMS Public Document 
collection at http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/adams.html. From this site,
