Notice of Workshop.


The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) will host a public workshop to discuss the proposed new appendix to Chapter 19 of the Standard Review Plan (NUREG-0800), entitled “Appendix D—Use of Risk Information in Review of Non-Risk Informed License Amendment Requests.” The appendix is being developed to provide guidance to the NRC staff on the use of risk information in those rare instances where license amendment requests appear to meet regulatory requirements but raise significant risk concerns due to some special circumstances associated with the request. The workshop is open to the public.


The workshop will be held on May 16, 2000, from 9 am to 12 noon.


U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Room T-8A1, Two White Flint North, 11545 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland.
