SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 189a.(2)(A) of the Atomic Energy Act 
of 1954, as amended (the Act), grants the Commission the authority to 
issue and make immediately effective any amendment to an operating 
license or any amendment to a combined construction and operating 
license, as applicable, upon a determination by the Commission that 
such amendment involves no significant hazards consideration, 
notwithstanding the pendency before the Commission of a request for a 
hearing from any person. Section 189a.(2)(B) of the Act, as amended, 
requires that the Commission periodically (but not less frequently than 
once every 30 days) publish notice of any amendments issued, or 
proposed to be issued pursuant to section 189a.(2)(A). To fulfill this 
requirement, the NRC periodically issues a document entitled, 
``Biweekly Notice; Applications and Amendments to Facility Operating 
Licenses and Combined Licenses Involving No Significant Hazards 
Considerations,'' in the Federal Register.
    Instead of publishing Biweekly Notices every 14 days, the NRC will 
publish a notice approximately every 4 weeks (every 28 days). The new 
title for this publication will be ``Monthly Notice; Applications and 
Amendments to Licenses Involving No Significant Hazards 
Considerations.'' This streamlined publication schedule will provide 
efficiency to the public and stakeholders locating pertinent 
information and will provide a government cost savings in time and 
print expenses.

    Dated: September 29, 2020.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Craig G. Erlanger,
Director, Division of Operating Reactor Licensing, Office of Nuclear 
Reactor Regulation.
