SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

    The NRC is amending its regulations in parts 2, 15, 19, 20, 26, 30, 
40, 50, 51, 52, 55, 60, 61, 63, 70, 71, 72, 73, and 76 of Title 10 of 
the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) to make miscellaneous 
corrections. These changes include updating the address for the NRC's 
PDR, updating a footnote, correcting mathematical errors, correcting 
references, correcting typographical and grammatical errors, and 
revising language for clarity and consistency. This final rule also 
makes changes to the time period by which a Federal agency must refer a 
debt for collection through offset, and makes conforming changes to the 
regulations to reflect the transfer of Mississippi to NRC Region IV.
    This document is necessary to inform the public of these non-
substantive changes to the NRC's regulations.

II. Summary of Changes

10 CFR Part 2

    Correct Reference. In Sec.  2.810(e), this final rule removes the 
reference ``(13 CFR 121.402(b)(2))'' and replaces it with the reference 
``(13 CFR 121.104),'' which is more accurate.
    Revise a Typographical Error. In the first sentence of Sec.  
2.1023(a), this final rule removes the word ``and'' and replaces it 
with the word ``an.''
    Correct Number. In the second sentence of the introductory 
paragraph of Sec.  2.1210(a), this final rule removes the words ``forty 
(40) days'' and replaces them with the words ``one-hundred and twenty 
(120) days.'' With this change, Sec.  2.1210(a) conforms to Sec.  
2.341.
    Correct Number. In the first sentence of Sec.  2.1406(c), this 
final rule removes the words ``twenty (20) days'' and replaces them 
with the words ``twenty-five (25) days.'' With this change, Sec.  
2.1406(c) conforms to Sec.  2.1407(a)(1).

10 CFR Part 15

    Change Time Period for Referral of Debt for Collection through 
Offset. The Digital Accountability and Transparency Act of 2014 (Pub. 
Law 113-101) (DATA Act) amended 31 U.S.C. 3716(c)(6), ``Administrative 
Offset,'' effective May 19, 2014. This minor provision changed the time 
period by which a Federal agency must refer to the Secretary of the 
Treasury a debt owed to the U.S. Government, for collection of the debt 
through offset, from 180 days to 120 days. This final rule changes the 
number of days from 180 days to 120 days in Sec.  15.33(b)(1) to comply 
with the DATA Act. This final rule also changes the number of days from 
180 to 120 in the first sentences of Sec.  15.20(d) and the 
introductory paragraph of Sec.  15.20(e) for consistency.

10 CFR Part 19

    Correct Contact Information for Obtaining NRC Form 3. In Sec.  
19.11(e)(2), this final rule removes the NRC phone number that has been 
discontinued because it was subject to frequent change and, therefore, 
confusing to the public; corrects the email address; and corrects the 
Web site address.

10 CFR Part 20

    Transfer Mississippi to Region IV. In the Staff Requirements 
Memorandum to SECY-06-0075, dated April 26, 2006 (ADAMS Accession No. 
ML061160609), the Commission approved the transfer of all interactions 
with the State of Mississippi from NRC Region II to NRC Region IV. This 
final rule makes conforming changes to appendix D to 10 CFR part 20 to 
reflect the transfer.

10 CFR Part 26

    Correct Mathematical Error. In the first sentence of Sec.  
26.135(c), this final rule removes the words ``(-20 [deg]C (-
68[emsp14][deg]F) or less)'' and replaces them with the words ``(-20 
[deg]C (-4[emsp14][deg]F) or less).''
    Correct Mathematical Error. In the first sentence of Sec.  
26.159(i), this final rule removes the words ``-20 [deg]C (-
68[emsp14][deg]F)'' and replaces them with the words ``-20 [deg]C (-
4[emsp14][deg]F).''
    Revise a Typographical Error. In the first sentence of Sec.  
26.717(g), this final rule removes the word ``licensee's)'' and 
replaces it with the word ``licensees.''

10 CFR Part 30

    Correct Contact Information for Obtaining NRC Form 3. In Sec.  
30.7(e)(3), this final rule removes the NRC phone number that has been 
discontinued because it was subject to frequent change and, therefore, 
confusing to the public; corrects the email address; and corrects the 
Web site address.

10 CFR Part 40

    Correct Contact Information for Obtaining NRC Form 3. In Sec.  
40.7(e)(3), this final rule removes the NRC phone

[[Page 66599]]

number that has been discontinued because it was subject to frequent 
change and, therefore, confusing to the public; corrects the email 
address; and corrects the Web site address.

10 CFR Part 50

    Correct Contact Information for Obtaining NRC Form 3. In Sec.  
50.7(e)(2), this final rule removes the NRC phone number that has been 
discontinued because it was subject to frequent change and, therefore, 
confusing to the public; corrects the email address; and corrects the 
Web site address.
    Correct Spelling. This final rule makes several spelling 
corrections by adding hyphens to words appearing in Sec.  50.55a. In 
Sec.  50.55a(b)(2)(viii)(B), this final rule replaces the word 
``prestressing'' with ``pre-stressing'' and the word ``prestress'' with 
``pre-stress.'' In Sec.  50.55a(b)(2)(viii)(C), this final rule 
replaces the word ``retensioning'' with ``re-tensioning''. In Sec.  
50.55a(b)(2)(ix)(J), this final rule replaces the word ``leaktight'' 
with the word ``leak-tight.''
    Revise Language for Consistency. This final rule revises the first 
sentence of Sec.  50.82(a)(4)(i) to permit licensees to submit the 
Post-Shutdown Decommissioning Activities Report prior to permanent 
cessation of operations. This change is necessary for the language in 
Sec.  50.82(a)(4)(i) to conform to Sec.  50.82(a)(8)(iii), Section 4 of 
Regulatory Guide 1.184 (October 2013) (ADAMS Accession No. 
ML13144A840), and Section 21 of the technical basis for the 
Decommissioning Planning Rule (ADAMS Accession No. ML070590136).

10 CFR Part 51

    Revise Reference for Clarity. In the first sentences of Sec. Sec.  
51.34(b) and 51.102(c), this final rule adds the words ``subpart G of'' 
in order to restore the original NRC intent that it may issue most 
materials licenses before the hearing on the license, if any, is 
completed.
    Correct Address and Minor Editorial Changes. In Footnote 1 of 
Summary Table S-4 in Sec.  51.52, this final rule adds the word ``of'' 
to the first sentence, corrects the NRC's address in the second 
sentence, and begins the third sentence with the word ``The.''
    Revise Typographical Errors. In Sec.  51.53(d), this final rule 
revises the last sentence to correct the quotation marks around the 
titles of the two reports and add an apostrophe.

10 CFR Part 52

    Correct the Definition of ``Early Site Permit.'' In 2007, a final 
rule, ``Licenses, Certifications, and Approvals for Nuclear Power 
Plants'' (72 FR 49352; August 28, 2007), corrected references in 10 CFR 
part 52 to reflect that Commission approval for an early site permit 
refers to a single site. However, the definition for ``early site 
permit'' in Sec.  52.1 was inadvertently not corrected at that time, 
and continued to indicate that it meant Commission approval for ``a 
site or sites.'' This final rule corrects the definition in Sec.  
52.1(a) to indicate Commission approval for a singular site, and 
conforms to those changes made in 2007 to Sec. Sec.  52.12 and 
52.15(a), and subpart F of 10 CFR part 52.
    Correct Contact Information for Obtaining NRC Form 3. In Sec.  
52.5(e)(2), this final rule removes the NRC phone number that has been 
discontinued because it was subject to frequent change and, therefore, 
confusing to the public; corrects the email address; and corrects the 
Web site address.

10 CFR Part 55

    More Clearly Indicate Where Submissions Should be Sent. In Sec.  
55.5(b)(3), this final rule adds an introductory paragraph to more 
clearly indicate where test and research reactor or non-reactor 
facilities should send submissions. This final rule also removes Sec.  
55.5(b)(3)(i) and (ii), which become unnecessary once the introductory 
paragraph is added.
    Add Language to Specify Criteria. In Sec.  55.40(d), after the word 
``shall,'' this final rule adds the following words: ``use the criteria 
in NUREG-1478, `Operator Licensing Examiner Standards for Research and 
Test Reactors,' for all test and research reactors to.''
    Correct Cross Reference. On March 31, 2008, the NRC published the 
Fitness-for-Duty Programs final rule (73 FR 16965). The final rule 
removed appendix A to 10 CFR part 26, ``Guidelines for Drug and Alcohol 
Testing Programs,'' in its entirety and incorporated the requirements 
into subparts E, F, and G of 10 CFR part 26. This final rule corrects 
Sec.  55.53(j) to correctly reference the subparts.
    Remove Obsolete Language. In the second sentence of Sec.  55.55(b), 
this final rule removes the words ``or telegram'' and the words ``or 
with a telegraph company.''

10 CFR Part 60

    Correct Contact Information for Obtaining NRC Form 3. In Sec.  
60.9(e)(2), this final rule removes the NRC phone number that has been 
discontinued because it was subject to frequent change and, therefore, 
confusing to the public; corrects the email address; and corrects the 
Web site address.

10 CFR Part 61

    Correct Contact Information for Obtaining NRC Form 3. In Sec.  
61.9(e)(2), this final rule removes the NRC phone number that has been 
discontinued because it was subject to frequent change and, therefore, 
confusing to the public; corrects the email address; and corrects the 
Web site address.

10 CFR Part 63

    Correct Contact Information for Obtaining NRC Form 3. In Sec.  
63.9(e)(2), this final rule removes the NRC phone number that has been 
discontinued because it was subject to frequent change and, therefore, 
confusing to the public; corrects the email address; and corrects the 
Web site address.

10 CFR Part 70

    Correct Contact Information for Obtaining NRC Form 3. In Sec.  
70.7(e)(3), this final rule removes the NRC phone number that has been 
discontinued because it was subject to frequent change and, therefore, 
confusing to the public; corrects the email address, and corrects the 
Web site address.

10 CFR Part 71

    Correct Contact Information for Obtaining NRC Form 3. In Sec.  
71.9(e)(2), this final rule removes the NRC phone number that has been 
discontinued because it was subject to frequent change and, therefore, 
confusing to the public; corrects the email address; and corrects the 
Web site address.

10 CFR Part 72

    Correct Contact Information for Obtaining NRC Form 3. In Sec.  
72.10(e)(2), this final rule removes the NRC phone number that has been 
discontinued because it was subject to frequent change and, therefore, 
confusing to the public; corrects the email address; and corrects the 
Web site address.
    Remove Expired Certificates. Certificates of Compliance 1000, 1002, 
1003, and 1005 have expired and this final rule removes them from Sec.  
72.214. The certificate holders have not opted to renew the 
certificates, and no other applicants have requested renewal. No casks 
have been loaded under these certificates.

10 CFR Part 73

    Correct Reference in Authority Citation. In a final rule published 
on May 20, 2013 (78 FR 29520), ``Physical Protection of Irradiated 
Reactor Fuel in Transit,'' Sec.  73.37 was revised in its entirety. 
This revision moved the advance notification provisions to governors of 
affected states for shipments of spent nuclear fuel through

[[Page 66600]]

their ``affected'' States from Sec.  73.37(f) to Sec.  73.37(b)(2). 
This final rule corrects the cross reference in the authority citation 
for 10 CFR part 73.
    Transfer Mississippi to Region IV. In the Staff Requirements 
Memorandum to SECY-06-0075 (April 26, 2006), the Commission approved 
the transfer of all interactions with the State of Mississippi from NRC 
Region II to NRC Region IV. This final rule makes conforming changes to 
appendix A to 10 CFR part 73 to reflect the transfer.
    Correct Title of Appendix. Appendix C to 10 CFR part 73 applies to 
facilities other than nuclear power plants. Therefore, this final rule 
corrects the title of appendix C to 10 CFR part 73 by removing the 
words ``Nuclear Power Plant'' from the title and replacing them with 
the word ``Licensee.'' This change also conforms the title of the 
appendix to the existing reference in Sec.  73.46(h)(1).

10 CFR Part 76

    Correct Contact Information for Obtaining NRC Form 3. In Sec.  
76.7(e)(3), this final rule removes the NRC phone number that has been 
discontinued because it was subject to frequent change and, therefore, 
confusing to the public; corrects the email address; and corrects the 
Web site address.

III. Rulemaking Procedure

    Under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553(b)), an agency 
may waive the normal notice and comment requirements if it finds, for 
good cause, that they are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to 
the public interest. 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 
amendments, because notice and opportunity for comment are unnecessary. 
The amendments will have no substantive impact and are of a minor and 
administrative nature dealing with corrections to certain CFR sections 
related only to management, organization, procedure, and practice. 
Specifically, the revisions are of the following types: updating of the 
address for the NRC's PDR, updating a footnote, correcting mathematical 
errors, correcting references, correcting typographical and grammatical 
errors, and revising language for clarity and consistency. This final 
rule also makes changes to the time period by which a Federal agency 
must refer a debt for collection through offset, and makes conforming 
changes to the regulations to reflect the transfer of Mississippi to 
NRC Region IV. 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.

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 that are corrective, minor, or nonpolicy in 
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 
Office of Management and Budget 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. Backfitting and Issue Finality

    The NRC has determined that the corrections in this final rule do 
not constitute backfitting and are not inconsistent with any of the 
issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52. The revisions are non-
substantive in nature, including updating the address for the NRC's 
PDR, updating a footnote, correcting mathematical errors, correcting 
references, correcting typographical and grammatical errors, and 
revising language for clarity and consistency. This final rule also 
makes changes to the time period by which a Federal agency must refer a 
debt for collection through offset, and makes conforming changes to the 
regulations to reflect the transfer of Mississippi to NRC Region IV. 
They impose no new requirements and make no substantive changes to the 
regulations. The corrections 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 or represent an inconsistency with any of the 
issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52. Therefore, the NRC has not 
prepared any additional documentation for this correction rulemaking 
addressing backfitting or issue finality.
