    The NRC has issued Amendment No. 3 to Materials License No. SNM-2502 held by Duke Energy Progress, LLC for the Robinson Unit No. 2, Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation, which changes the corporate name of the licensee from Duke Energy Progress, Inc. to Duke Energy Progress, LLC. The application dated July 10, 2017 (ADAMS Accession No. ML17192A078), submitted in accordance with section 72.56 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), included adequate justification for the proposed changes.

    Pursuant to 10 CFR 72.46, the NRC docketed, approved, and issued Amendment No. 3 for the receipt, possession, transfer, and storage of spent fuel at the Robinson Unit No. 2, Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation. Amendment No. 3 is effective as of the date of issuance. Amendment No. 3 complies with the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the Commission's rules and regulations. The Commission has made appropriate findings, as required by the Act and the Commission's rules and regulations in 10 CFR chapter 1, which are set forth in Amendment No. 3. The issuance of Amendment No. 3 satisfies the criteria specified in 10 CFR 51.22(c)(11) for a categorical exclusion. Thus, the preparation of an environmental assessment or an environmental impact statement is not required.

    In accordance with 10 CFR 72.46(b)(2), the NRC has determined that Amendment No. 3 does not present a genuine issue as to whether public health and safety will be significantly affected. Therefore, the publication of a notice of proposed action and an opportunity for hearing or a notice of hearing is not required. Notice is hereby given of the right of interested persons to request a hearing on whether the action should be rescinded or modified in accordance with the procedures found in 10 CFR 2.309.
