SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Back to Top

I. Introduction Back to Top

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing for public comment a draft guide in the agency's “Regulatory Guide” series. This series was developed to describe and make available to the public such information as methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the NRC's regulations, techniques that the staff uses in evaluating specific problems or postulated accidents, and data that the staff needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses.

The draft regulatory guide (DG) is temporarily identified by its task number, DG-1228, which should be mentioned in all related correspondence. DG-1228 is proposed Revision 1 of Regulatory Guide 1.179, dated January 1999. This guide provides general procedures for the preparation of license termination plans for nuclear power reactors. Use of this regulatory guide will help to ensure the completeness of the information provided in a license termination plan, assist the staff of the NRC and others in locating pertinent information, and facilitate the review process. However, the NRC does not require conformance with the procedures, which are provided for guidance only.

II. Further Information Back to Top

The NRC staff is soliciting comments on DG-1228. Comments may be accompanied by relevant information or supporting data and should mention DG-1228 in the subject line. Comments submitted in writing or in electronic form will be made available to the public in their entirety through the NRC's Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS).

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments by any one of the following methods. Please include Docket ID NRC-2010-0275 in the subject line of your comments. Comments submitted in writing or in electronic form will be posted on the NRC website and on the Federal rulemaking website Regulations.gov. Because your comments will not be edited to remove any identifying or contact information, the NRC cautions you against including any information in your submission that you do not want to be publicly disclosed.

The NRC requests that any party soliciting or aggregating comments received from other persons for submission to the NRC inform those persons that the NRC will not edit their comments to remove any identifying or contact information, and therefore, they should not include any information in their comments that they do not want publicly disclosed.
