SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On August 17, 2010, the petitioner submitted 
PRM-26-6 to the NRC requesting that it amend its fitness-for-duty 
regulations to decrease the minimum days off requirement from an 
average of 3 days per week to 2.5 or 2 days per week for security 
officers working 12-hour shifts (ADAMS Accession No. ML102630127). On 
November 23, 2010, the NRC published a notice of receipt of, and 
request for public comment on PRM-26-6 in the Federal Register (75 FR 
71368). The NRC received 5 comment letters from corporations, 
professional organizations, and private citizens. The NRC initially 
determined that the issues raised in PRM-26-6 would be considered in 
the ``Quality Control/Quality Verification'' rulemaking (Docket ID: 
NRC-2009-0090) and published a Federal Register notice (76 FR 28191) on 
May 16, 2011, to this effect. On December 9, 2015, the NRC published a 
notice in the Federal Register discontinuing the QC/QV rulemaking (80 
FR 76394). By email dated December 10, 2019, the petitioner withdrew 
PRM-26-6 (ADAMS Accession No. ML20006D919).

    Dated December 3, 2020.
