SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Introduction

    The NRC is amending its regulations in Title 10 of the Code of 
Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Chapter I to make technical corrections. 
These changes include correcting the authority citations for 10 CFR 
parts 1, 2, 4, 7, 9, 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 19, 20, 21, 26, 30, 31,

72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 81, 95, 100, 140, 150, 160, 170, and 171; updating 
the street address for its Region I office; correcting typographical 
and spelling errors; and making other edits and conforming changes.

II. Summary of Changes

10 CFR Part 4

    Revise Nomenclature. The words ``handicap'' and ``handicapped'' are 
replaced with the words ``disability'' and ``disabled,'' as 
appropriate.

10 CFR Part 10

    Correct Title Designation. The position formerly entitled, ``Deputy 
Executive Director for Information Services and Administration and 
Chief Information Officer,'' no longer exists. A new position has been 
created and designated the title of ``Deputy Executive Director for 
Corporate Management.'' This new title designation replaces the former 
title in 10 CFR part 10.

10 CFR Part 20

    Revise Office of Management and Budget (OMB)-Approved Information 
Collection List. In Sec.  20.1009(b), the list of the OMB-approved 
information collection requirements is revised to remove the reference 
to Sec.  20.2008 because the section no longer exists.

10 CFR Part 30

    Revise Mailing Address. In Sec.  34.20(a)(1), the mailing address 
of the American National Standards Institute, Inc., is revised to 
include their new mailing address.
    Correct Reference. In Sec.  30.34(h)(1)(ii), the section number 
under the reference to Title 11 of the United States Code (11 U.S.C.) 
is incorrect. In this paragraph, the reference ``11 U.S.C. 101(14)'' is 
replaced with the reference ``11 U.S.C. 101(15).''

10 CFR Part 40

    Revise OMB-Approved Information Collection List. In Sec.  40.8, a 
new paragraph (c)(6) is added to the list of OMB-approved information 
collection requirements to include references to Sec. Sec.  40.25 and 
40.35, which have been approved by OMB.
    Insert Missing Language. In appendix A to 10 CFR part 40, section 
I, criterion 4(d), the phrase ``(on the order of 10 m or greater); 
impoundment slopes are very gentle (on the order of 10 h:1v)'' was 
included in the original final rule, but was inadvertently omitted in 
the most recent amendments, even though Criterion 4 has not been 
amended since the original final rule. This resulted in incomplete 
language. In criterion 4(d), the phrase is added to read ``(on the 
order of 10 m or greater); impoundment slopes are very gentle (on the 
order of 10 h:1v or less).''
    Correct Typographical Error. In appendix A to 10 CFR part 40, 
section I, criterion 8A, the phrase ``that is not corrected'' is 
revised to read ``that if not corrected.'' In this phrase, the word 
``is'' is replaced with ``if.''

10 CFR Part 50

    Revise OMB-Approved Information Collection List. In Sec.  50.8(b), 
the list of OMB-approved information collection requirements is revised 
to add references to Sec.  50.150 which was inadvertently omitted in 
the most recent amendments.
    Correct Typographical Error. In appendix R to 10 CFR part 50, 
section III, paragraph G.3, the phrase ``Alternative or dedicated'' was 
inadvertently revised to read ``Alternative of dedicated.'' In this 
phrase, the word ``of'' is replaced with ``or.''

10 CFR Part 51

    Correct Address. In Sec.  51.121(b), the addressee section, ``ATTN: 
Chief, Rules and Directives Branch, Office of Administration'' is 
revise to read, ``ATTN: Rules, Announcements, and Directives Branch, 
Office of Administration'' and the email address, ``NRCREP@nrc.gov'' is 
removed.
    Correct Office Title. In Sec.  51.122, the name of the office, 
formerly called, ``Office of Information Resources Management,'' is 
revised to read ``Office of Information Services.''

10 CFR Part 71

    Revise Table Entries and Footnote for Consistency. In appendix A to 
10 CFR part 71, Table A-1, the values for the entries Bi-205, Cm-248, 
Eu-150 (long lived), and Te-132 (a), are revised for consistency with 
Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations, section 173.435. In 
addition, in Table A-1, footnote b is revised for clarity.

10 CFR Part 72

    Revise OMB-Approved Information Collection List. In Sec.  72.9(b), 
the list of OMB-approved information collection requirements is revised 
to remove the reference to Sec. Sec.  72.8 and 72.216 because these 
sections no longer exist.

10 CFR Part 73

    Revise OMB-Approved Information Collection List. In Sec.  73.8(b), 
the list of OMB-approved information collection requirements is revised 
to add references to Sec. Sec.  73.23 and 73.51 which have been 
approved by OMB.
    Revise Language for Clarity. In Sec.  73.55(e)(1)(ii), the word 
``physical'' is added. The insertion of the word ``physical'' in this 
paragraph aids the reader in identifying the correct plan from among 
the ones defined in Sec.  73.55(a).
    In Sec.  73.55(k)(8)(ii), the phrase, ``indirect and neutralize the 
threat'' is revised to read, ``indirect and neutralize threats'' for 
clarity and consistency with Sec.  73.55(k)(1).
    In Sec.  73.55(m)(2), the phrase, ``but not be limited to'' is 
revised to read ``but not limited to'' for clarity and consistency with 
Sec.  73.55(n)(1)(ii).
    In Sec.  73.55(m)(3), the first and second sentences are revised so 
that the word ``and'' is added, the comma following the word ``form'' 
is removed, and the word ``operation'' is revised to read 
``operations.'' In Sec.  73.55(m)(3), the sentence structure is revised 
for clarity.
    In Sec.  73.55(n)(1)(v), the word ``component'' has been revised to 
a plural term for consistency with Sec.  73.55(o)(1).
    In Sec.  73.56(h)(4), the paragraph heading for the introductory 
text of paragraph (h)(4)(ii) is revised to provide clarification 
between the two types of interruptions discussed in this section. In 
paragraphs (h)(4)(ii)(A) and (B), paragraph headings are added for 
clarity and consistency.

[[Page 39901]]

    In Sec.  73.56(i)(1)(iv), the first sentence is revised to provide 
clarity and specify the amount of days that constitute an annual 
supervisory review.
    In appendix C to 10 CFR part 73, section I, the word ``Licensee'' 
has been revised to a plural term to be consistent with the rest of the 
entities listed in the sentence.
    In appendix C to 10 CFR part 73, section II, paragraphs B.3.c.(i) 
and B.3.c.(v)(4), the compound word ``defense in depth'' was not 
hyphenated. In these paragraphs, the compound word ``defense in depth'' 
is revised to read ``defense-in-depth'' for consistency with Sec.  
73.55(b)(3)(ii).
    In appendix C, section II, paragraph B.3.c.(iii) is revised to 
remove the phrase, ``training and qualification plans'' for clarity and 
consistency with Sec.  73.55(a)(1).
    In appendix C to 10 CFR part 73, section II, paragraph 
B.3.c.(v)(1), the reference ``performance objectives of Sec.  73.55(a) 
through (k)'' is replaced with the reference ``performance requirements 
and objectives of Sec.  73.55(a) through (k).''
    In appendix C to 10 CFR part 73, section II, paragraph C.2, the 
phrase ``Cyber Security Plan'' is added as this plan is now part of the 
security program review.
    Correct References. In Sec.  73.55(c)(4), (d)(3), (g)(8)(iii), and 
appendix C to 10 CFR part 73, section II, paragraph A.(4), the title of 
appendix B to 10 CFR part 73 is removed and replaced with the title of 
section VI of appendix B to 10 CFR part 73.
    In Sec.  73.55(c)(5), the title of appendix C to 10 CFR part 73 is 
removed and replaced with the correct title and reference to section II 
of appendix C to 10 CFR part 73.
    In appendix B to 10 CFR part 73, section VI, paragraph H.1., the 
reference to Sec.  73.55(r) is replaced with the reference ``Sec.  
73.55(q).''
    In appendix B to 10 CFR part 73, section VI, paragraph I, the 
reference to Sec.  73.55(n) is replaced with the reference ``Sec.  
73.55(m).''
    In appendix C to 10 CFR part 73, section II, paragraph C.1, the 
reference to Sec.  73.55(n) is replaced with the reference ``Sec.  
73.55(m).''
    In appendix C to 10 CFR part 73, section II, paragraph C.3, the 
reference to Sec.  73.55 is replaced with the reference ``Sec.  
73.55(q).''
    Correct Typographical Error. In Sec.  73.55(i)(4)(ii)(G), the word 
``the'' was omitted due to a clerical error. In this paragraph, the 
word ``the'' is added between the words ``of'' and ``final'' to correct 
the sentence structure.
    In Sec.  73.56(h)(4)(i) and (h)(4)(ii)(B), the word ``proceeding'' 
has been replaced with the word ``preceding.''
    In appendix B to 10 CFR part 73, section VI, paragraph C.3.(k)(3), 
an ``r'' was inadvertently omitted in the word ``though.'' In this 
paragraph, the word ``though'' is replaced with the word ``through.''

Change in Street Address for Region I

    The street address of the NRC Region I office has been changed. The 
new address is incorporated into the following sections of the NRC's 
regulations: Sec.  1.5(b)(1), appendix D to 10 CFR part 20, Sec.  
30.6(b)(2)(i) and (b)(2)(ii), Sec.  40.5(b)(2)(i) and (b)(2)(ii), Sec.  
55.5(b)(2)(i), Sec.  70.5(b)(2)(i), and appendix A to 10 CFR part 73.

Revise Authority Citations

    The authority citations for the following NRC regulations are 
revised to include conforming administrative changes: 10 CFR parts 1, 
2, 4, 7, 9, 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 19, 20, 21, 26, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 
35, 36, 39, 40, 50, 51, 52, 54, 55, 60, 61, 62, 63, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 
75, 76, 81, 95, 100, 140, 150, 160, 170, and 171.

III. Rulemaking Procedure

    Under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C 553(b)), an agency 
may waive the normal notice and comments requirements if it finds, for 
good cause, that they are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to 
the public interest. The NRC finds that notice and comment for these 
amendments are unnecessary and contrary to the public interest because 
it will have no substantive impact, are technical in nature, and relate 
only to management, organization, procedure, and practice. The 
Commission is exercising its authority under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B) to 
publish these amendments as a final rule. The amendments are effective 
August 6, 2012. These amendments do not require action by any person or 
entity regulated by the NRC. Also, the final rule does not change the 
substantive responsibilities of any person or entity regulated by the 
NRC.
    As authorized by 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), the NRC finds good cause to 
waive notice and opportunity for comment on the revisions listed above 
because these revisions are administrative in nature and do not change 
substantive requirements under the regulations. Specifically, the 
revisions are of the following types: corrections to cross-references 
where the cross-reference is now incorrect due to changes in the 
regulations; typographical and grammatical corrections; nomenclature 
changes that do not affect any requirements under the regulations; 
revisions to titles and office re-designations; address changes; 
revision to the OMB-approved list of information collections; revisions 
to table entries and footnotes for consistency; insertion of language 
that had been unintentionally deleted during the most recent revisions; 
and other minor changes in wording that do not change the substantive 
requirements for clarity and consistency. These corrections will reduce 
confusion among any person or entity regulated by the NRC, and 
therefore notice and comment is unnecessary.

IV. Environmental Impact: Categorical Exclusion

    The NRC has determined that this final rule is the type of action 
described in categorical exclusion 10 CFR 51.22(c)(2), which excludes 
from a major action rules which are corrective or of a minor or 
nonpolicy nature and do not substantially modify existing regulations. 
Therefore, neither an environmental impact statement nor an 
environmental assessment has been prepared for this rule.

V. Paperwork Reduction Act Statement

    This final rule does not contain information collection 
requirements and, therefore, is not subject to the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.).

Public Protection Notification

    The NRC may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to 
respond to, a request for information or an information collection 
requirement unless the requesting document displays a currently valid 
OMB control number.

VI. Plain Writing

    The Plain Writing Act of 2010 (Pub. L. 111-274) requires Federal 
agencies to write documents in a clear, concise, and well-organized 
manner. The NRC has written this document to be consistent with the 
Plain Writing Act as well as the Presidential Memorandum, ``Plain 
Language in Government Writing,'' published June 10, 1998 (63 FR 
31883).

VII. Backfit Analysis

    The NRC has determined that the administrative changes in the final 
rule do not constitute backfitting, and therefore a backfit analysis is 
not included. The revisions are administrative in nature, including 
typographical corrections and updates to references and authorities. 
They impose no new requirements and make

[[Page 39902]]

no substantive changes to the regulations. The revisions do not involve 
any provisions that would impose backfits as defined in 10 CFR chapter 
I, or would be inconsistent with the issue finality provisions in 10 
CFR part 52. For these reasons, the issuance of the rule in final form 
would not constitute backfitting. Therefore, a backfit analysis was not 
prepared.
