SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

    The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has received, by letter 
dated April 22, 2004, a request to renew NRC License Nos. 37-00030-02 
and 37-00030-08 for the Safety Light Corporation (Safety Light or the 
licensee), Bloomsburg, PA. License Nos. 37-00030-02 and 37-00030-08 
authorize Safety Light to manufacture devices containing tritium at a 
facility

[[Page 39516]]

located at 4150-A Old Berwick Road, Bloomsburg, PA, and to decommission 
portions of that same facility. These license renewals would authorize 
the continued manufacture of electron tubes, self-luminous devices, 
foils, targets, rods, and pins and the characterization and 
decommissioning of contaminated facilities, equipment and land.
    An NRC administrative review, documented in a letter to Safety 
Light dated April 30, 2004, found the application acceptable to begin a 
review. If the NRC approves the amendment and renews these licenses, 
the approval will be documented in an amendment to NRC license Nos. 37-
00030-02 and 37-00030-08. If the NRC renews the license, the NRC will 
need to make the findings required by the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as 
amended, and NRC's regulations. These findings will be documented in a 
Safety Evaluation Report. These license renewals appear to qualify for 
a categorical exclusion pursuant to 10 CFR 51.22(c)(14).

II. Opportunity to Request a Hearing

    The NRC hereby provides notice that this is a proceeding on an 
application to renew NRC License Nos. 37-00030-02 and 37-00030-08, 
authorizing Safety Light to continue to manufacture electron tubes, 
self-luminous devices, foils, targets, rods, and pins and to 
characterize and decommission portions of its Bloomsburg facility. In 
accordance with the general requirements in Subpart C of 10 CFR Part 2, 
as amended on January 14, 2004 (69 FR 2182), any person whose interest 
may be affected by this proceeding and who desires to participate as a

    The formal requirements for documents contained in 10 CFR 2.304(b), 
(c), (d), and (e), must be met. However, in accordance with 10 CFR 
2.304(f), a document filed by electronic mail or facsimile transmission 
need not comply with the formal requirements of 10 CFR 2.304(b), (c), 
and (d), as long as an original and two (2) copies otherwise complying 
with all of the requirements of 10 CFR 2.304(b), (c), and (d) are

Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555-0001, Attention:

    In accordance with 10 CFR 2.309(b), a request for a hearing must be 
filed by August 30, 2004.
    In addition to meeting other applicable requirements of 10 CFR Part 
2 of the NRC's regulations, the general requirements involving a 
request for a hearing filed by a person other than an applicant must 
state:
    1. The name, address and telephone number of the requester;
    2. The nature of the requester's right under the Act to be made a 
party to the proceeding;
    3. The nature and extent of the requester's property, financial or 
other interest in the proceeding;
    4. The possible effect of any decision or order that may be issued 
in the proceeding on the requester's interest; and
    5. The circumstances establishing that the request for a hearing is

    In accordance with 10 CFR 2.309(f)(1), a request for hearing or 
petitions for leave to intervene must set forth with particularity the 
contentions sought to be raised. For each contention, the request or 
petition must:
    1. Provide a specific statement of the issue of law or fact to be 
raised or controverted;
    2. Provide a brief explanation of the basis for the contention;
    3. Demonstrate that the issue raised in the contention is within 
the scope of the proceeding;
    4. Demonstrate that the issue raised in the contention is material 
to the findings that the NRC must make to support the action that is 
involved in the proceeding;
    5. Provide a concise statement of the alleged facts or expert 
opinions which support the requester's/petitioner's position on the 
issue and on which the requester/petitioner intends to rely to support 
its position on the issue; and
    6. Provide sufficient information to show that a genuine dispute 
exists with the applicant on a material issue of law or fact. This 
information must include references to specific portions of the 
application that the requester/petitioner disputes and the supporting 
reasons for each dispute, or, if the requester/petitioner believes the 
application fails to contain information on a relevant matter as 
required by law, the identification of each failure and the supporting 
reasons for the requester's/petitioner's belief.
    In addition, in accordance with 10 CFR 2.309(f)(2), contentions 
must be based on documents or other information available at the time 
the petition is to be filed, such as the application or other 
supporting documents filed by the applicant, or otherwise available to 
the petitioner. Contentions may be amended or new contentions filed 
after the initial filing only with leave of the presiding officer.
    Requesters/petitioners should, when possible, consult with each 
other in preparing contentions and combine similar subject matter 
concerns into a joint contention, for which one of the co-sponsoring 
requesters/petitioners is designated the lead representative. Further, 
in accordance with 10 CFR 2.309(f)(3), any requester/petitioner that 
wishes to adopt a contention proposed by another requester/petitioner 
must do so in writing within ten days of the date the contention is 
filed, and designate a representative who shall have the authority to 
act for the requester/petitioner.
    In accordance with 10 CFR 2.309(g), a request for hearing and/or 
petition for leave to intervene may also address the
