FY 2010 Fee Rule

Docket ID: NRC-2009-0333
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC)
The final rule amends the Commission's licensing, inspection, and annual fees charged to U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) licensees and applicants for an NRC license. The rulemaking is necessary to recover, through the assessment of fees, approximately 90 percent of the NRC's budget authority for fiscal year (FY) 2010, less the amounts appropriated from the Nuclear Waste Fund, amounts appropriated for Waste Incidental to Reprocessing, and amounts appropriated for generic homeland security activities, as required by the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990 (OBRA-90), as amended. Based on the Energy and Water Development and Related Agencies Appropriation Act, 2010, the NRC’s required fee recovery amount for the FY 2010 budget is approximately $912.2 million. After accounting for billing adjustments (i.e., expected unpaid invoices, payments for prior year invoices), the total amount to be billed as fees is $911.1 million. The OBRA-90, as amended, requires that the fees for FY 2010 be collected by September 30, 2010.
