I. Introduction

    By letter dated March 28, 2002 (ADAMS ML020940468), Framatome 
Advanced Nuclear Power (FANP) requested the renewal of license SNM-
1168. A Federal Register Notice was published on August 9, 2002, 
notifying the public that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) 
or the Commission was reviewing the renewal application for SNM-1168 
and offering a 30-day notice of opportunity to request a hearing, in 
accordance with 10 CFR part 2. No requests for a hearing were received.
    The environmental impacts of continued operation were reported in 
the Environmental Assessment (EA) for Renewal of License SNM-1168 
(ADAMS ML030940720). On the basis of the assessment, a Finding of No 
Significant Impact (FONSI) was published in the Federal Register on May 
7, 2003, (68 FR 24521).
    Therefore, the Commission has renewed, for a period of ten years, 
Special Nuclear Material License SNM-1168 (ADAMS ML033490064), held by 
FANP to authorize: (1) Fabrication of fuel assemblies for commercial 
nuclear reactors, (2) support activities for nuclear reactor field 
service operations, and (3) general manufacturing at the Lynchburg, 
Virginia facility. This renewal was issued on December 12, 2003, and is 
effective immediately.

II. Further Information

    In accordance with 10 CFR 2.790 of the NRC's ``Rules of Practice,'' 
the documents related to this proposed action including the EA and 
FONSI are available electronically for public inspection from the 
Publicly Available Records (PARS) component of NRC's document system 
(ADAMS). ADAMS is accessible from the NRC Web site at http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/adams.html. These documents may also be examined 
and/or copied for a fee at the NRC Public Document Room (PDR) located

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 2nd day of January, 2004.
