NRC Decommissioning Rulemaking

Docket NRC-2015-0070

New York State (NYS) has been actively engaged for years with the NRC Decommissioning Rulemaking. The proposed rule will make many changes to the NRC regulations involving Decommissioning.

License Amendment Requests and Exemption Requests

New York State (NYS) reviews every exemption request and license amendment request (LAR) that is submitted by Holtec.* NYS often engages with NRC and Holtec* informally, but will submit formal comments when deemed appropriate. The items listed below include those exemption requests and LARs commented on by NYS. The absence of written comments should not be viewed as a lack of due diligence or engagement by NYS.

*Prior to Holtec's acquisition of Indian Point in 2021, several exemption requests and LARs were submitted by previous site owner and operator Entergy. Those submissions are noted above.

Consent-Based Siting

The federal Department of Energy (DOE) is working to develop a consent-based siting process to identify sites to consolidate and temporarily store spent nuclear fuel.

NYSERDA also filed comments on the NRC’s Systematic Assessment for how the agency addresses Environmental Justice in its Programs, Policies, and Activities on October 29, 2021: NRC-2021-0137-0277
