SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 16, 2004 (69 FR 2497), the NRC 
published a direct final rule amending its regulations in 10 CFR part 
72 to revise the NAC International, Inc., NAC-UMS cask system listing 
within the ``List of Approved Spent Fuel Storage Casks'' to include 
Amendment No. 3 to Certificate of Compliance Number 1015. This 
amendment adds an alternate poison material, revises fuel assembly 
dimensions, revises thermal analyses, increases Boiling Water Reactor 
fuel assembly weight, and incorporates Interim Staff Guidance-11 
revision provisions. The amendment also reorganizes Section 6.5 of the 
Safety Evaluation Report, revises Technical Specification A.5.5, and 
requests several editorial and administrative changes. In the direct 
final rule, NRC stated that if no significant adverse comments were 
received, the direct final rule would become final on March 31, 2004. 
The NRC did not receive any comments that warranted withdrawal of the 
direct final rule. Therefore, this rule will become effective as 
scheduled.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 25th day of March, 2004.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Chief, Rules and Directives Branch, Division of Administrative
