Nuclear Regulatory Commission.


Notice of workshop.


The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) will host a public workshop to solicit feedback on the implementation of the direct final rule for 10 CFR 50.54(a) and to gather information to determine the need for the development of the voluntary alternative rulemaking based on Nuclear Energy Institute petition PRM-50-62. On February 23, 1999, the NRC published a direct final rule in the Federal Register (64 FR 9029), that amended its regulations to permit power reactor licensees to implement certain quality assurance (QA) program changes without obtaining prior NRC approval of these changes. The direct final rule became effective on April 26, 1999. Based on the workshop outcome, the staff will determine whether additional rulemaking is warranted. The NRC invites comments from interested parties who are unable to attend the workshop.


The workshop will be held on Wednesday, June 7, 2000, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.


U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, One White Flint North (Room 14 B6), 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD 20852-2738, (301) 415-7000.
