SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering the 
issuance of a license amendment to Adolor Corporation for Materials 
License No. 37-30369-01, to authorize release of its facility in 
Malvern, Pennsylvania for unrestricted use and has prepared an 
Environmental Assessment (EA) in support of this action in accordance 
with the requirements of 10 CFR part 51. Based on the EA, the NRC has 
concluded that a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) is 
appropriate.

II. EA Summary

    The purpose of the proposed action is to allow for the release of 
the licensee's Malvern, Pennsylvania facility for unrestricted use. 
Adolor Corporation was authorized by NRC from August 20, 1997 to use 
radioactive materials for research and development purposes at the 
site. On July 18, 2003, Adolor Corporation requested that NRC release 
the facility for unrestricted use. Adolor Corporation has conducted 
surveys of the facility and determined that the facility meets the 
license termination criteria in subpart E of 10 CFR part 20.

III. Finding of No Significant Impact

    The NRC staff has evaluated Adolor Corporation's request and the 
results of the surveys and has concluded that the completed action 
complies with 10 CFR part 20. The staff has prepared the EA (summarized 
above) in support of the proposed license amendment to terminate the 
license and release the facility for unrestricted use. On the basis of 
the EA, the NRC has concluded that the environmental impacts from the 
proposed action are expected to be insignificant and has determined not 
to prepare an environmental impact statement for the proposed action.

IV. Further Information

    The EA and the documents related to this proposed action, including 
the application for the license amendment and supporting documentation, 
are available for inspection at NRC's Public Electronic Reading Room at 
http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/adams.html (ADAMS Accession Nos.

    Dated at King of Prussia, Pennsylvania this 7th day of January, 
2004.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
