Licensing Support Network Advisory Review Panel

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Notice of renewal of the charter of the licensing support 
network advisory review panel.


SUMMARY: The Licensing Support System Advisory Review Panel was 
established by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) as a Federal 
Advisory Committee in 1989. Its purpose was to provide advice on the 
fundamental issues of design and development of an electronic 
information management system to be used to store and retrieve 
documents relating to the licensing of a geologic repository for the 
disposal of high-level radioactive waste, and on the operation and 
maintenance of the system. This electronic information management 
system was known as the Licensing Support System.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Russell E. Chazell, Office of the 
Secretary, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555; 
telephone: 301-415-7469 or at [email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In November 1998, the Commission approved 
amendments to title 10 Code of Federal Regulations Part 2 that renamed 
the Licensing Support System Advisory Review Panel as the Licensing 
Support Network Advisory Review Panel (LSNARP). The Licensing Support 
Network (LSN) was shut down in 2011 and the document collection was 
submitted to the Office of the Secretary. The document collection was 
made publicly available in the NRC's Agencywide Documents Access and 
Management System in August 2016 and contains over 3.69 million 
documents associated the proposed high-level waste facility at Yucca 
Mountain. Membership on the Panel will continue to be drawn from those 
whose interests could be affected by the use of the LSN document 
collection, including the Department of Energy, the NRC, the State of 
Nevada, the National Congress of American Indians, affected units of 
local governments in Nevada, the Nevada Nuclear Waste Task Force, and 
nuclear industry groups. Federal agencies with expertise and experience 
in electronic information management systems may also participate on 
the Panel.
    The NRC has determined that renewal of the charter for the LSNARP 
until December 30, 2022, is in the public interest in connection with 
duties imposed on the Commission by law. This action is being taken in 
accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act after consultation 
with the Committee Management Secretariat, General Services 

    Dated: December 30, 2020.
Russell E. Chazell,
Federal Advisory Committee Management Officer, Office of the Secretary.
