Amendment to Spent Fuel Storage Regulations

The NRC issued for public comment a proposed rule to amend its spent fuel storage regulations by revising the Holtec International HI– STORM 100 Cask System listing within the ‘‘List of Approved Spent Fuel Storage Casks’’ to include Amendment No. 9 to Certificate of Compliance (CoC) No. 1014. Amendment No. 9 broadens the subgrade requirements for the HI– STORM 100U part of the HI–STORM 100 Cask System and updates the thermal model and methodology for the HI–TRAC transfer cask from a two dimensional thermal-hydraulic model to a more accurate three dimensional model. The amendment also makes editorial corrections. Comments are due by January 6, 2014.
