AGENCY:

Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION:

Notice of public workshop.

SUMMARY:

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has instructed its staff to explore changes to specific technical requirements of 10 CFR Part 50, to incorporate risk-informed attributes. The staff is studying the ensemble of technical requirements contained in 10 CFR Part 50 (and its associated implementing documents, such as regulatory guides and standard review plan sections) to (1) identify individual or sets of requirements potentially meriting change; (2) prioritize which of these requirements (or sets of requirements) should be changed; and (3) develop the technical bases to an extent that is sufficient to demonstrate the feasibility of changing the requirements. This work will result in recommendations to the Commission on any specific regulatory changes that should be pursued. Public participation in the development of these recommendations will be obtained via workshops and information on a web site. Start Printed Page 56013
