Notice of Availability and Request for Comments.
The NRC is announcing the availability of, and requesting comments on, draft NUREG-1556, Volume 20, “Consolidated Guidance about Materials Licenses: Guidance about Administrative Licensing Procedures,” dated July 2000.
The NRC is using Business Process Redesign techniques to redesign its materials licensing process, as described in NUREG-1539, “Methodology and Findings of the NRC's Materials Licensing Process Redesign.” A critical element of the new process is consolidating and updating numerous guidance documents into a NUREG-series of reports. This draft NUREG report is the 20th guidance document developed for the new process.
This guidance is intended for use by the NRC staff, and will also be available to Agreement States, applicants, and licensees. This document combines and updates the guidance for NRC license reviewers and licensing assistants previously found in the documents listed in Appendix A of the NUREG. When published in final form, NRC licensing staff will use these administrative procedures to process license applications and prepare licenses. Note that this document is strictly for public comment and is not for use in preparing or reviewing license applications until it is published in final form. It is being distributed for comments to encourage public participation in its development.
The comment period ends October 3, 2000. Comments received after that time will be considered if practicable.
Submit written comments to: Chief, Rules and Directives Branch, Division of Administrative Services, Office of Administration, U. S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, D.C. 20555-0001. Hand-deliver comments to 11545 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland, between 7:15 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on Federal workdays.
