A final response to a request for amendment will include the NSC Staff determination on whether to grant or deny the request. If the request is denied, the response will include:

(2) The name and address of the individual to whom an appeal should be directed;
(3) A description of the process for review of the appeal within the NSC; and
(4) A description of any other procedures which may be required of the individual in order to process the appeal.
