On October 10, 2018 (83 FR 50965), the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) published a notice in the federal register to reopen the public comment period in the notice originally published in the federal register on August 9, 2018 (83 FR 39475). NRC is allowing more time for members of the public to develop and submit their comment on draft NUREG-2224, “Dry Storage and Transportation of High Burnup Spent Nuclear Fuel.” The draft NUREG provides technical background information applicable to high burnup spent nuclear fuel (HBU SNF), provides an engineering assessment of recent NRC-sponsored mechanical testing of HBU SNF, and proposes example approaches for licensing and certification of HBU SNF in transportation and dry storage. Draft NUREG-2224 is available in NRC’s Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) under Accession No. ML18214A132. Please submit comments on the draft NUREG-2224 by November 9, 2018. Comments received after this date will be considered, if it is practical to do so, but the NRC is able to ensure consideration only for comments received on or before this date.
