DOE Requests Comments for Secretarial Determination Regarding Transfers of Uranium

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) requests comments for consideration on the Secretarial Determination covering potential continued transfers of uranium for cleanup services at the Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant. The DOE already issued a Request for Information (RFI) on July 19, 2016 that solicited information about uranium markets and domestic uranium, conversion, and enrichment industries and the potential effects of DOE uranium transfers on the domestic industries. The DOE also commissioned an independent analysis of the potential effects of various levels of uranium transfers. The DOE now provides for public review and comment on a summary of information that the DOE will use in the decision-making process for a potential Secretarial Determination. The deadline for submitting comments on the potential Secretarial Determination is April 10, 2017.
