This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

The workshop is open to the public.
The workshop will be held on Wednesday, February 21, 2001 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and on Thursday, February 22, 2001 from 8:30 a.m. through 4:00 p.m.

This workshop will provide an opportunity to discuss topics related to Option 2 in risk-informed regulations, as discussed in NRC documents SECY-99-256 and SECY-00-0194. The NRC is developing a rulemaking (referred to as Option 2) to revise, using a risk-informed categorization approach, the scope of structures, systems and components (SSC) that are subject to special treatment requirements. Such requirements include quality assurance, testing, qualification and other measures to provide a high degree of assurance that SSC will remain functional.
Based upon the comments received in response to the ANPR, other discussions with stakeholders, and staff views, the following presents the preliminary agenda and set of discussion topics. The discussion topics are tentative and subject to change. Anyone interested in providing a presentation on these or other related topic(s), please contact Joe Golla at (301) 415-1002.
