NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION

10 CFR Parts 11 and 25

[NRC-2011-0161]
RIN 3150-AJ00


Access Authorization Fees; Correction

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Correcting amendments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is correcting the 
preamble, or statement of considerations (SOC), and codified text in a 
direct final rule that was published in the Federal Register on May 3, 
2012 (77 FR 26149) and confirmed on June 22, 2012 (77 FR 37553). The 
direct final rule amended the NRC's access authorization fees charged 
to licensees for work performed under the Material Access Authorization 
Program (MAAP) and the Information Access Authority Program (IAAP). 
This document is necessary to correct an email address, a codification 
error, a misspelled abbreviation, and the authority citations.

DATES: The correction is effective on August 3, 2012 and applicable to 
June 22, 2012, the date the original rule became effective.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Cindy Bladey, Chief, Rules, 
Announcements, and Directives Branch, Office of Administration, U.S. 
Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555-0001; telephone: 
301-492-3667; email: Cindy.Bladey@nrc.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The NRC published a direct final rule in the 
Federal Register on May 3, 2012 (77 FR 26149) and a confirmation of the 
effective date on June 22, 2012 (77 FR 37553). The direct final rule 
amended the NRC's access authorization fees charged to licensees for 
work performed under the MAAP and the IAAP. This document is necessary 
to correct an email address, a codification error, a misspelled 
abbreviation, and the authority citations in the codified text. The 
following corrects the SOC to the May 3, 2012, document:
    1. On page 26150, in the second column before the table, the first 
paragraph, the last sentence is corrected to read as follows:
    The NRC's licensees can also obtain the current OPM investigation 
billing rates schedule by contacting the NRC's Personnel Security 
Branch (PSB), Division of Facilities and Security (DFS), Office of 
Administration (ADM) by email to Licensee_Access_Authorization_Fee.Resource@nrc.gov.
    2. On page 26150, in the first column after the table, the first 
paragraph, the fifth sentence is corrected to read as follows:
    Copies of the current NRC access authorization fee can be obtained 
by contacting the NRC's Personnel Security Branch, Division of 
Facilities Security, Office of Administration by email to Licensee_Access_Authorization_Fee.Resource@nrc.gov.
