SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On June 2, 2020 (85 FR 33527), the NRC 
published a direct final rule amending its regulations in parts 9 and 
35 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations to specify when 
inclusion of an individual's Social Security account number (SSN) is 
necessary, include instructions for the partial redaction of SSNs, 
where feasible, and provide a requirement that SSNs not be visible on 
the outside of any package sent through the mail.
    In the direct final rule, the NRC stated that if no significant 
adverse comments were received, the direct final rule would become 
effective on August 17, 2020. The NRC received two comments from the 
public that supported the proposed changes to the regulations. Because 
no significant adverse comments were received, the direct final rule 
will become effective as scheduled.

    Dated July 17, 2020.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Chief, Regulatory Analysis and Rulemaking Support Branch, Division of 
Rulemaking, Environmental, and Financial Support, Office of Nuclear
