The direct final rule amends the Commission's regulations by revising the Transnuclear, Inc., Standardized NUHOMS Cask System listing within the "List of Approved Spent Fuel Storage Casks" to include Amendment No. 13 to Certificate of Compliance No. 1004. The direct final rule allows holders of power reactor operating licensees to store spent fuel in this approved cask system under a general license. Amendment No. 13 revises authorized contents to: add two new dry shielded canisters (DSCs) the -37PTH and the -69BTH; add new approved contents including blended low enriched uranium (BLEU) fuel and control components to already approved DSCs; and extend the use of the high-seismic horizontal storage module (HSM-HS) for storage of already approved DSCs. In addition the amendment makes several other changes.
