Title: ●List of Approved Spent Fuel Storage Casks -- NAC International MAGNASTOR Cask System, Certificate of Compliance No. 1031, Amendment No. 6 [NRC-2016-0137]  

This direct final rule would amend the Commission's spent fuel storage regulations by revising the NAC International MAGNASTOR Cask System listing within the "List of approved spent fuel storage casks" to include amendment No. 6 to Certificate of Compliance (CoC No. 1031.  Amendment No. 6 revises NAC International MAGNASTOR technical specifications (TSs) to align with the NAC-MPC and NAC-UMS TSs.  The CoC 1031 TSs require that a program be established and maintained for loading, unloading, and preparing fuel for storage without any indication of duration for the program.  Amendment No. 6 limits maintenance of this program until all spent fuel is removed from the spent fuel pool and transport operations are completed.  Related training and radiation protection program requirements are modified accordingly.  Additionally, Amendment No. 6 incorporates changes to Limiting Condition for Operation 3.1.1 previously approved by the NCE in Amendment No. 4.
