SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

    The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering the issuance 
of a license amendment to Millipore Corporation's Materials License No. 
29-30108-01, to authorize release of its facility in Lincoln Park, New 
Jersey for unrestricted use. NRC 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. The 
amendment will be issued following the publication of this Notice.

II. EA Summary

    The purpose of the proposed action is to authorize the release of 
the licensee's Lincoln Park, New Jersey facility for unrestricted use. 
Millipore Corporation (previously known as CPG, Inc.) was authorized by 
NRC from 1994, to use radioactive materials for research and 
development purposes at the site. On January 27, 2004, Millipore 
Corporation requested that NRC release the facility for unrestricted 
use. Millipore 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. The NRC staff has prepared an EA in 
support of the proposed license amendment.

III. Finding of No Significant Impact

    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. The NRC staff has evaluated Millipore 
Corporation's request and the results of the surveys and has concluded 
that the completed action complies with the criteria in Subpart E of 10 
CFR Part 20. The staff has found that the environmental impacts from 
the proposed action are bounded by the impacts evaluated by the 
``Generic Environmental Impact Statement in Support of Rulemaking on 
Radiological Criteria for License Termination of NRC-Licensed 
Facilities'' (NUREG-1496). 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

2004.
