Office of Nonproliferation Policy; Proposed Subsequent

AGENCY: Department of Energy.

ACTION: Notice of subsequent arrangement.

SUMMARY: This notice has been issued under the authority of section 131
of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (42 U.S.C. 2160). The
Department is providing notice of a proposed ``subsequent arrangement''
under the Agreement for Cooperation Concerning Civil Uses of Atomic
Energy between the United States and Canada and Agreement for
Cooperation in the Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Energy between the United
States and the European Atomic Energy Community (EURATOM).
This subsequent arrangement concerns the retransfer of 813,600 kg
of U.S.-origin natural uranium hexafluoride, 550,000 kg of which is
uranium, from Cameco Corporation, Port Hope, Ontario, Canada, to
Eurodif Production (Eurodif), Pierrelatte France. The material, which
is now located at Cameco Corp., Port Hope, Ontario, will be transferred
to Eurodif for enrichment. Upon completion of the enrichment, the
material will be used at Electricite de France as reactor fuel. Cameco
Corp. originally obtained the uranium hexafluoride under the UF6 Feed
Component Implementation Contract.
In accordance with section 131 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as
amended, we have determined that this subsequent arrangement is not
inimical to the common defense and security.
This subsequent arrangement will take effect no sooner than fifteen
days after the date of publication of this notice.

For the Department of Energy.
Kurt Siemon,
Acting Director, Office of Nonproliferation Policy.
