NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION
[Docket No. 040-00017]

Notice of Consideration of Amendment Request for Dow Chemical
Company's Radiation Safety Officer Change and Schedule Extension for
Decommissioning of Bay City Site, and Opportunity for a Hearing
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering
issuance of a license amendment (LA) to Material License No. STB-527
issued to The Dow Chemical Company (TDCC), to authorize change of the
Radiation Safety Officer (RSO), and to extend the time schedule for
decommissioning of its Bay City site, Bay City, Michigan.
TDCC submitted a letter dated June 1, 2000, which requested a
license amendment to change the RSO. TDCC also submitted a letter dated
May 23, 2000, requesting an extension of the deadline for completion of
decommissioning until October 31, 2003.
These letters are treated as requests for license amendment. An NRC
administrative review, documented in a letter to TDCC dated July 21,
2000, found the RSO change and the schedule extension requests
acceptable to begin a technical review. If the NRC approves the RSO
change and the schedule extension to October 31, 2003, the approval
will be documented in a license amendment to NRC License No. STB-527.
However, before approving the proposed amendment, the NRC will need to
make findings required by the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended,
and NRC's regulations. These findings will be documented in a Safety
Evaluation Report and an Environmental Assessment.
NRC hereby provides notice that this is a proceeding on two
applications for license amendment of a license falling within the
scope of Subpart L, ``Informal Hearing Procedures for Adjudication in
Materials Licensing Proceedings,'' of NRC's rules of practice for
domestic licensing proceedings in 10 CFR part 2. Pursuant to
Sec. 2.1205(a), any person whose interest may be affected by this
proceeding may file a request for a
[[Page 50032]]
hearing in accordance with Sec. 2.1205(d). A request for a hearing must
be filed within thirty (30) days of the date of publication of this
Federal Register notice.
The request for a hearing must be filed with the Office of the

2. By mail or facsimile addressed to: Secretary, U.S. Nuclear

In accordance with 10 CFR Sec. 2.1205(f), each request for a

1. The interest of the requester in the proceeding;
2. How that interest may be affected by the results of the proceeding,
including the reasons why the requester should be permitted a hearing,
with particular reference to the factors set out in Sec. 2.1205(h):
3. The requester's areas of concern about the licensing activity that
